Getting ready for fall

Jumping the gun a little on this one considering we still have almost a month to go before fall and it's still in the high 90's around here, but I am soooo ready for it. The cover of the most recent J Crew catalog got me in the spirit...


And loving these types of spaces right now... preppy. cozy. dark, rich colors.

Good finds from PB

Usually I flip through the Pottery Barn catalog quickly, put it aside, and forget about it until the next one comes. But I just looked through the new one today and am loving their Vanessa Floral collection in blue!

And love these glass candleholders. I have to remind myself I already have clear acrylic chairs around the dining table and adding more "clear" accessories would be overkill. But I love them! Also I'm liking these Carmen shams- possibly paired with the Vanessa floral- yum!

I can hardly wait...

I am a freak over anything John Derian and I absolutely cannot wait for his Target collection to be online September 5th! I will probably snatch a few pieces up but honestly I am still hoping to put a few of the real deals up in the house somewhere.

Two of my besties are getting married this fall and I am SO excited!! Even though they both have their invitations and other plans well underway I cannot help but still stalk the wedding sites. These came from Once Wed- aren't they fun?

Kriten Hutchins

I was so happy when I saw this photo, here, because it was love at first sight. This has all the elements I look for in a space. Classic pieces, a mix of texture and pattern, splash of color, touch of glam, comfort, and we can't forget the crystal doorknob! Oh and that high gloss blue door is perfection!
The designer is Kristen Hutchins. She has worked for Ruthie Sommers and Kelly Wearstler- no wonder she is amazing.
