Good Morning

Welcome to a brand new week :)

Although, as usual, I have an awaiting to do list, I like taking a few calm moments in the morning to pleasantly ease into to the week…
How about you? Do you have a busy week ahead? How do you like to start off your Mondays?
P.S. Isn’t that blue chair fabulous??

Loving: Lucite & Acrylic Kitchen Stools

If I had kitchen with an island or a raised counter, I think I’d seriously consider incorporating some lucite or acrylic stools. Something kinda like this:

It’s Friday again! Can you believe it? The weeks are just swooshing on by! I’ll leave you with fantastic high/low home studio. Can you tell which one cost $14,651 (high) and which one cost $4,801 (low)?

High Gloss Magazine!

Aren’t you just loving all these online magazines? High Gloss just went live with their first issue today and I’m absolutely loving it! My favorite interior design feature was the Boston bachelorette pad designed by Erin Gates of Elements of Style (love her!). It’s pink done right. Unapologetically girly, sophisticated and oh so chic. Contrast piping on the furniture, lucite pieces, patterned pillows, floor to ceiling drapes, the marble countertop and tulip table… I pretty much love everything in here, I don’t think I’d change a thing…

Glamorous Details

Loving the black lace detail on the door panel in the first photo and the graphic window pattern in the second photo. Also always a fan of the classically glamorous black and white scheme.

Matchbook Magazine!

Have you read it yet? If you haven’t heard, it’s the newest online lifestyle magazine that just went live last night, created by bloggers Katie Armour and Jane Lilly Warren. I haven’t read it all yet (it’s more text heavy than other online mags) but so far, I personally am absolutely loving it! It’s filled with lots of charm and personality. A few of my favorite shots:

Happy Friday

While there’s a lot to take care of this weekend, I’ll definitely make it a point to get some R&R to counteract the stress. Wouldn’t these spaces be lovely to spend some relaxing time in? The yellows and greens are so mood lifting…
