I started a post a while back about this article on Mr. de la Renta and his home in Kent, Connecticut. As a person who hopes to one day have a beautiful garden, I found his process of learning to garden through trial and error inspiring. A truly talented man that will be greatly missed.
It is no secret that the Sound of Music is my all-time favorite movie. I probably still know every song from watching it constantly as a child, so imagine my reaction to learning that Chanel, my all-time favorite fashion label, will be presenting the the next collection in Austria at the house used in the Sound of Music...BEST DAY EVER!!!
This just came into my inbox...the 2014 Kitchen of the Year in House Beautiful designed by Steven Miller. Surprisingly I'm loving that Miller mixed it up and went for black cabinets with white counter tops. There is a crispness that the black creates that makes me want to go paint something black!
Vogue videos has
started an online series titled “73 Questions” where they ask an individual 73
questions rapid fire and I am obsessed! I highly recommend both the videos of
Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively.
And then they get Anna Wintour to
participate and I think I just died. IT IS AMAZING!
This quote from the editorial jumped
out at me, “But something’s shifted. People want to get
back to the magic of smaller, special, and handmade. We grew up getting every
bit of information we needed instantly. So we want to know the backstory; we
want to knowwhysomething is the way it is.”
I find this to be incredibly true and find myself researching all sorts of topics lately. Mostly causing me to be annoying about all natural and organic items.
Lively's new website launched yesterday...so far I think it is pretty awesome. Check it out here:http://preserve.us/
I'm pretty sure Anna Kendrick and I would be best friends. This editorial is fantastic and very funny!
+I discovered this kitchen from "Project Holly" on Peppermint Bliss and fell in love. This is exactly what I would like my kitchen to look like...one day.
+I am finding Gardenista to be very inspiring lately with all of the gardening and yardwork we have been doing. I have also been wanting to paint our house white since we bought it and even though it may not happen this year, I have settled on the white used below. BM Swiss Coffee. Perfection. Here is a link to a great article on exterior whites.
debated doing away with this whole blogging thing several times now and I just
haven’t, even though I have been on quite the hiatus. This time I think I am
back for good, because I need some inspiration and the distraction.
I plan on sharing lots of inspiring
pictures of fashion, interiors, gardens, recipes, and even maybe a few diy
These are the things that I cannot stop
thinking about right now:…
+This Interior Design magazine spread of the Mad Men set. I
am just obsessed with the design of all of the spaces on the show and love that
they were able to get these pictures of the actual set. So cool.
+This amazing Atlanta vegetable garden
and chicken coop in Southern Living. We are getting ready to start our own
vegetable garden and I can only hope mine looks half as beautiful as this one.
More on that later.
+Giada’s Penne with Sundried Tomato Pesto. I love pesto and sundried tomatoes, but this just blew me away. It is a
thick pesto, but so good. The pesto itself would be delicious on a cracker with
a little parmesan on top as an appetizer.
