I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Color + Mirror

Last time I was in Miami, I realized how much I loved art deco design - saturated colors, bold, geometric shapes, and a vintage feel.  It makes you feel like you're living in the 30s or 40s.  I'm always drawn to art deco bathrooms for some reason. You know those pink bathrooms everyone hates? I kind of like them.  In an ugly duckling kind of way. 

The same thing happened when I came across this image

It's just so green. I love it. It's a bold move, but it kind of rules. 
Color+Mirror is an awesome company out of Michigan that specializes in manufacturing their mirrors locally and embraces old world techniques while doing so. It's the real art deco deal!

Friday Musings

Things I'm thinking about (other than chocolate, ice cream, and cake):

Monochromatic rooms with in your face flowers

Summer salads (another tried and true recipe here)

Kimonos. And beach hair. And coffee. And new rings:

The perfect pair of boyfriend shorts. And scalloped edges. I'm always thinking about scalloped edges:

Beach House Dreams

Since my parents are beginning a beach house renovation, my days are filled with Craig's List searches and emails back and forth with my mother with links to this coffee table and that couch and this end table and that light fixture. 

I recently stumbled across this AWESOME Timothy Oulton coffee table in the Apartment Therapy classifieds ($500!) and am in the process of convincing my mother it's the perfect beach house piece. 

I'm also totally into these over-dyed Turkish rugs. I first saw them at ABC home a while back, and now they're popping up everywhere.

Cruising the Classifieds

I've been looking for a bar cart for the majority of two years now. I haven't come across the perfect one, and when I have, it's just way out of my price range (girl's gotta eat, people!). Cruising the ApartmentTherapy and Craig's List classifieds is one of my daily routines. 

I recently came across this piece and it got me thinking.....

Weekend in Pictures

Life got real for a couple months there - but everything is under control. I've handed in my last final until September, and summer is right around the corner. Things are looking up. 

Checked out my family's new beach house (STILL CAN'T BELIEVE IT), had mother's day lunch at Porta in Asbury (absolutely awesome), and got my fix of fetch with Char.  I haven't had such an enjoyable Sunday in months. Feeling pretty excited for just about everything right now!
