interiors || oh, Kelly

July 29, 2011

no, fridays are not all about bars and drinks, contrary to how many times in a row i might post them. however, this friday will include bars. well, kelly wearstler bars. which, let's be honest, you would appreciate just for the aesthetics. have some champagne or have some soda water. either way, you'll be happy to be there.

and if you hate her style, humor me. i can't believe you read this blog anyway if that's the case, because that probably means you hate my style, too.

and clearly you don't, because you're here, aren't you?


i threw in some non-bars, but i didn't like doing it.

either the woman likes to do yellow, or i just like the woman when she does yellow.

happy champagne (or soda water) friday!

miranda's work is colorful, complex, imaginative and an utterly delightful play on global influences.

interiors || lonny magazine

July 21, 2011

okay, so you've surely already seen these lonny features. but i can't not post them. i mean, when i look back at this blog months or years from now, i'll want to be reminded of these amazing spaces. and how i had good enough taste to appreciate them :)

not that you're obligated to like them. but if you do, perhaps you'd like to tell me your favorite aspects?

first up, the delicious chicago apartment of lauren gold, design director for nate berkus associates

the past few issues have featured this glam look with metallics and black and warm whites, and i'm completely okay with it. favorite parts: the blackout open shelving, that sic chrome lamp, the mixed metals and that dining table 
paired with those chairs (duh).

and then there's ruthie sommers' living room. i died a thousand times when i saw this spread.

i really can't handle the sheer genius of this place. i've come to hate the overused term "eclectic" in the last few years, but this living room is style-that-shall-not-be-named done exactly right. it's pecuuuuuliar, and i couldn't be more in love. i love that every element is amazing on it's own, but that they can all live in such harmony. chaotic harmony. which is my MO, so i approve   >>>>>>>>>   do you?
