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.

Seriously, this is one of the best day outfits I've seen in a while. Her way with color is exceptional, and wow, does she know how to rock the accessories...

Pal + Smith's newly designed boutique, with it's cool book wall, bold pops of color and bits of sparkle and shine, makes me totally happy. So does Christian Louboutin's miniature Trash handbag! I'll take either...or both!
