Elegant Simplicity

A few simple, yet elegant rooms for this cool spring day. I hope it’s fairer in you part of the world!

Totally Inspiring Room

I found this pic (styled by James Leland Day) online while looking for Benjamin Moore’s Mysterious paint… I don’t know if that is the exact color in this pic but it looks close! Other pluses? My current obsession: a tray table. That rich caramel color on the sofa is making me drool. All in all a really pretty… and totally inspiring room!

Hey, That’s My Bike!

All Reality Bites references* aside, springtime is nearly upon us and what better way to get out and enjoy the upcoming weather than on two (or three) wheels?

Here are some really nice looking, classic bicycles and tricycles to feast your eyes on (and from least to most expensive).

Bicycles:
Cream 3 Speed – Schwinn
Aluminum 5 Speed Unisex – Kronan
Granturismo Donna – Abici
Sonnet Bliss – Pashley

Tricycles:
Manhattan Trike – KHS Bicycles
Picador – Pashley

I would love to own the Abici bike but my budget is more in Schwinn territory! It’s definitely a goal of mine to buy one this year and when I get it, I’m going to add on a bell and basket to trick it out. Do you have a cruiser or adult tricycle? How have you knitted yours out?

*the title of this post is named after the band Ethan Hawke’s character was in in Reality Bites. If you like grungy garage music, check out their song (with Ethan really singing the vocals) from the soundtrack – I’m Nuthin’. And I think I just put an expiration date on myself with that!

Blog Love: A Perfect Gray

I stumbled across A Perfect Gray… well, I don’t quite remember how but I’ve been lurking there for the past two days. Nearly every picture on this gorgeous blog features the color gray. While it might be easy to believe that nothing but gray interiors would be boring, I can assure you it’s not. If anything it has been something of an adventure discovering just how versatile gray is!

I am really in love with gray and have been for about the last year or so. So, it was really a pleasure to come across this blog – it is truly inspirational! Also, while reading some of the entries on A Perfect Gray, I was introduced to the blog Greige. I haven’t had a chance to look at it in depth yet because I’m still caught up with all the wonderful stuff on A Perfect Gray. I hope you all enjoy them both as much as I am!
