sleep style.

when it comes to little boys, navy is the new black for me. my sweet pea can sleep in style in these soft, organic two-piece pj’s all summer long.

knit knits.

when it comes to knits, the chunkier the better in my rustic option. these nubby, organic washcloths are just what i need to cleanse my troubles away.

even the scariest animals are beautiful when they come to life thru art. this little bear would be the perfect piece in a little boy’s, big boy room.

outdoor. indoor.

i love when the beauty of the outdoors mixes with the style and comfort of being indoors. i dream of having a studio that opens up to nature just as this little poolside nook does.

fashionable fridge.

the only thing cooler than a fridge is one this fashionable. black & gold makes certain the food never wins top honors in your kitchen.

spring is in the air.

i don’t play by the rules of wearing white. i think there are more than enough reasons to wear this classic color outside the confines of the truly summer months. i’ve been in love with this light and airy piece since the moment i laid eyes upon it. spring can’t come soon enough!

unexpected pieces.

i just love when unusual and unexpected pieces are used in design work, like this pommel horse  in this little nook. the uniqueness and new purpose of this piece gives the space just the high brow look it needs to stand apart from everything else out there.

there is nothing like just plain + simple chocolate cake. i am that girl that asks to hold the icing, please. this image reminds me of the cake i used to bake with my grandmother [and still bake today].

to bathe in.

in case i failed to mention, my little 1956 bath is getting makeover. 1 down, 1 more needed. well, that one can wait a bit. i love the clean + simple look of white + grey + that is exactly what will be illustrated in my little bathroom, while staying in keeping with it’s 50′s charm.
