scissor sisters.

i have a collection of vintage sewing scissors that were my grandmothers, and new ones aren’t overly easy to come across. these gold heirloom-inspired snips & clips are right up my alley.

eat in.

I wouldn’t mind not bringing the family into formal dining with an eat-in kitchen like this. The high ceilings and rustic beams help to elevate even the most simple of meals.

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.
