existing from aidan gray.

i have so long been a fan of aidan gray‘s original collection – in all it’s worn and throwback glory. the woven detail of this christopher salon chair from layla grayce is reminiscent of a plantation chair styling, with the comfort of simple cushioning – perfect for about any room in my house.

new from aidan gray

aidan gray / zinc doormy heart is still skipping a beat after seeing the reveal of the new aidan gray chair collection over at zinc door – this hom marx occaisional chair one is one of my absolute favs with its curvacious + mid century lines.


barn chic.

my own personal style is certainly barn chic and i am swooning over the fabulous elle decor spread on ellen & portia’s beautiful home.

switch modern: picks

oh my! we had the loveliest time over at the switch modern event to enjoy the architectural beauties of the talented keith summerour. because “modern” was in the name, I assumed this might be more a gig for christina but oh, no no. so many gorgeous finds for us both to enjoy.

these were a few of my favorites: my *most* amazing find was this poppy hanging lamp by designer Christine Manguerra, these rustic little wooden side tables, and these really smart looking felt bowls that I first spotted at the January Gift Show from Graf & Lantz. can’t wait for the next event to swoon over the new finds.

leifsdottir contest at polyvore

christina loucks (neutral hue) mid century modern

i had so much fun playing over at polyvore for the leifsdottir spring contest putting together my neutral inspiration of furniture + fashion blended. if you like this, i would be much abliged if you popped on over there to comment or like the entry.

to dine.

to dine in neutral simplicity is to sit upon this glorious wicker seating, among the cast metal and elm wood with stacks of mismatched white pottery. and, the rope tie-back detail on the curtains, swoon.

tabletop experience via restoration hardware


this dining experience from design within reach has just the perfect balance of curves, organic +  crisp clean mid century modern styling.  add a few candles + some single blooms + the space is just about perfect.

sweet dreams.

the sleepiest moments in life require the most plush of places to lay your head or lounge. my love for dressing the bed is constant & endless. and, oh how i’ve swooned over these very things in my dreams.
