{happy weekend!}

This weekend is satin dresses and sunsets, dinner reservations and late, late nights . . .

Have a beautiful, beautiful weekend, everyone!

{two lovely things: gold + geometric}

Always drawn to gold in interiors, especially in geometric patterns such as this beautiful wood and metal shelf {above} and hand-forged gueridon table with gold gilding {below}, perfectly matched with a swing-arm sconce and brass shade . . .

{inspiration: embellishments}

Things to look forward to: layers, ruffles, cuffs and pearls, and for summer's end -- tweeds and cardigans and pretty, pretty embellishments . . .

{p.s.} really beautiful ankle boots here

{inspiration: a stunning gold desk}

. . . and while we're on the topic of inspiring work spaces, Aerin Lauder's 30's French steel and mirror desk at work {previous post} is rivaled only by the glamorous gold vintage Gabriella Crespi desk in her home office:

{the desk is Italian, circa 1970 and constructed of brass over wood}

{brian atwood + bally}

. . . fallen for the new bally suede and leather ankle boots -- with intricately beautiful lacy brass heels, they are pure works of art . . .


{inspiration: white + gold office}

. . . making over the office space and have completely fallen for Aerin Lauder's ultra-glamorous and inspirational combination of mirrored desktop, lucite table lamp, and white and gold desk accessories . . .

{p.s.} is your desk tidy or cluttered + a little messy?

{inspiration: back to black}

. . . had all but abandoned black {in the home, but not the closet} long ago, believing it to be a little overwhelming and sombre for bright and sunny rooms -- and yet -- have recently become enchanted by its bold elegance and dramatic charm . . .

{runway: marchesa resort 2010}

. . . in all the summer excitement of the past few weeks, had missed the marchesa resort collection and immediately fell into a beautiful world of perfectly draped silks and satins, bare shoulders and intricate beading, and gowns made for wearing until dawn . . .

{p.s.} more of this collection at the side project


{three beautiful storage solutions}

. . . a gliding guest bed

. . . a curtained closet

. . . vena cava's barrister bookcases

{p.s.} one more lovely idea: letter holders

{at home with fashion}

Have been interested in the intersection between fashion + interiors for as long as can remember, mixing beautiful fashion editorials and the latest runway collections with equally beautiful rooms - for me, the two have always been perfectly intertwined . . .

* adore with the mirrored night table {above}
* domino's final "can this outfit be turned in to a room" match-up for old time's sake:

{new: photographers + blogs}

Two wonderful photographers who have blogs:

* elizabeth messina : kiss the groom {thanks, felicity!}
* rodney smith : the end starts here

{turquoise waters + the south of france}

Lunch with my sister and was reminded of a summer spent in the south of France, swimming in fascinating sea caves where the water hovered between an amazing shade of green and blue . . .

{happy weekend!}

milla jovovich, this is glamorous... another whirlwind week has come and gone, and can hardly believe it's already midsummer . . . heading out of the city to make the most of these last golden days and wishing you sunshine and happiness wherever you may be . . .

Have a beautiful, beautiful weekend!

{inspiration: midsummer blues}

Isn't this the most darling denim one-piece?
And yet another perfect reason for spending the rest of the summer lounging by the sea . . .
