I've been working on my master hallway/dressing area for the past few weeks, trying to make it more funky, fashionable and cozy too. In my search for inspiration, I keep returning to this delightful space belonging to actress Amy Sedaris. I love that there is so much going on in a narrow space, with the flocked Osbourne and Little wallpaper and framed pictures and wooden bats. It's certainly an example of "more is more," which I'm all about!

Another jewelry-themed post before the end of the night... Alexis Bittar is one of my favorite jewelry designers, and his boutiques are fabulous too since they always feature some tremendous piece of taxidermy (such as the lion I am photographed with to the right.) These totally surreal images from his 2012 Resort look book do not disappoint either. They are so good in fact, I would love if they came large enough to frame. For more of this crazy eye candy, go here...

I'm always lusting for more jewelry, and rings are usually at the top of my list...
Whether slim and delicate, or brutalist and bold, or with quirky critters and skulls... a beautiful gold ring (or two or three) for my hand makes me a happy lady. I suspect it's because I can look down at it all day long!

Seeing this adorable patio has me thinking about redecorating my own outdoor space. Even though it's late summer, I figure there's still enough time to enjoy a sunny little sitting area, especially if it includes a yellow-fringed umbrella! Perhaps I have a project ahead of me for next weekend. I hope this past weekend was a lovely one for all of you, it certainly was for me. Looking forward to sharing more colorful, end of summer inspiration as the week goes on!

How lovely! Thank you to Jen over at the fabulously stylish Green Wedding Shoes for featuring my June 2010 wedding today! It was a treat to share my inspiration for the look and feel of the day, and to describe how all the various details came to fruition. Jen was kind enough to reprint my comments in full, so if you would like to learn more check it all out here...

This is truly a fantasy land of a house. I imagine the animals coming to life at night and whooping it up around the dining room table. I have a feeling the zebra is the life of the party!

Late to the party as usual, I finally got going on Pintrest today. I had fun adding some of my favorite images and inspiration, including these wonderfully graphic mid-fifties book covers (which as you all know I love to collect!) I hope you will come visit me over there, I'd love to share what I find with you!
Also, I finally created a Facebook page for Peacock Feathers, which I would also love for you to come visit!
Hope you all had a happy weekend and a happy Monday too...
