Luckily, it's on sale at Nordstrom. I think this will be an addition to my holiday wish list....

This Keith Haring/Kelly Wearstler-inspired graffiti wall by Nicole of Sketch42 is the most fabulous thing ever. I might finally have to try a project like this in my house! I'm totally inspired...

things that are awesome

This week, I present a rather random selection of things I am loving and/or have my eye on. First up, glittery stiletto sandals and a kelly green leather clutch. Both currently reside in my closet...

Amazing combination of color and texture. How divine is that crimson velvet pump with the pastel green paillettes?

A Cy Twombly gallery poster (want!) and my most favorite new beauty product, the limited edition Chanel eyelash curler...

And nothing beats a delightful bouquet of peach and violet carnations...

I can't get enough of these lovely interiors from stylist Marcus Hay. So much here inspires me in regards to my own home. The french doors would be perfect for letting more light in, and the gray walls are the perfect backdrop for the works of art and whimsical collections. For more eye candy...

a rainy day...

Photobucket

It's been grey and gloomy in Philadelphia this week, which has me craving softly-muted interiors such as this lovely one above. The color palette is so relaxing, but I like that there's still lots to look at with the gallery-style walls and unique accessories. Hopefully the sun will return soon, but for now having spaces like this to dream about isn't a bad thing.
