Two beautiful bedrooms – both with dark walls, white sheets, a touch of color, and that elegant white lacquered boudoir end table with lucite and nickel accents:
End table is from the Jonathan Adler Channing collection. Most of us would consider it pricey -if you know of a similar looking one that’s less expensive, be sure to share it with us in the comments section!

Exctied to meet Grace Bonney at the Design Sponge book signing event tonight in Beverly Hills. Design Sponge was one of the very first blogs I ever read and I really look up to Grace as a design entrepreneur.
Have you guys read the book? Anyone else going tonight? Say hi if you do, I’ll be there with my pal Irene.

Organizing kitchen utensils into simple containers and keeping them on the counter is great for having them within easy reach.
Particularly love the way it looks when they are organized by type – wooden utensils in one crock and stainless steel utensils in another.
Though it took a bit longer than expected, as these types of things usually do, I’m excited to announce that my little shop is finally live!
To start off I’m offering a selection of pillow covers made of fabrics I love…

Just a few things I love about fall…
…the crisp air, crunchy leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, cozy nooks…
Happy first (official) day of fall!
p.s. My little online shop is almost ready! Just working out the technical kinks-can’t wait to show you guys!
Today participating in the How I Organize series is the super sweet Victoria of the lifestyle blog vmac and cheese. She gives us a peek inside her home and shows us how she beautifully organizes her makeup, perfumes, products and other lovely things atop her dresser:I’m not the type who likes to hide everything away — my house definitely looks like someone lives there and my vanity area is no exception! An antique wood dresser which belonged to my great grandmother is right at home in a sunroom off of our bedroom, which we use as a dressing area. Atop the dresser, I store makeup in clear acrylic drawer and cosmetic organizers that I purchased from The Container Store. I also showcase different perfumes and products on an old mirrored tray found at the flea market; jewelry rests in a repurposed ceramic soap dish. Getting ready in the morning is easy with all my items in quick reach, and the area looks pretty, lived in, and organized!
A creative way to house a wardrobe, this DIY cabana closet was made by repurposing a bakers rack and sewing a custom cover using inexpensive striped fabric. Looks pretty great don’t you think?
From Samantha and Lindsey’s bright beach cottage. See the rest of it here.
Loving how white paired with a bit of soft turqoise helps make these spaces look so fresh.
Hope you have a great start to your week!
Getting things ready to open up my little shop next week (!!) so will be working a few hours Saturday, but Sunday will most definitely involve a bit of weekend lounging…
Hope you fit in a bit of relaxation as well. See you Monday!
If I was in the market for a new sofa, I’d probably look for one like this…
…an amply proportioned sofa with a deep seat, rolled arm, and tight scalloped back. Doesn’t it look comfy?
As I mentioned in my Dream Home post, Sofia Coppola’s blue one (top two images) is the Jules sofa by George Smith (as is probably some of the other sofas pictured as well). Unfortunately it’s quite pricey (I believe around $12K). The Cameron sofa from Room and Board (which can be upholstered in any fabric they have available) is a good option for getting the look for less. I’d probably replace the legs with vintagey ones to get closer to the look. If you happen to know of any other sources for getting a similar style piece at an affordable price please do share!
