Happy Halloween!

Photobucket

This is my little buddy Rigby, he is almost 4 years old and such a loving and loyal dog. In lieu of Halloween, he is wearing a dinosaur costume that my sweet mom-in-law gave to me! He's trying so hard to keep his head up, not to let the teeth get into his eyes! We are all staying in tonight with candy and movies! Hope you all have a good one!



CWD Textile love

What a whirlwind the past few weeks have been! I apologize on my lack of posts recently! We are moved into our new apartment and are now quite settled. I will be posting pictures soon of my new place! So back to blogging... Have any of you checked out Caitlin Wilson Textiles?!!?! I am seriously swooning over her new website launch with all her brand new pillows and fabrics for sale! She has amazing taste and I love how it all turned out. As soon as I get a better feel for this apartment and how I am going to design it, I will be purchasing quite a few lovely pieces from CWD. Have a wonderful wednesday!

the office

Its always astounding to me just how gaga I get over office supplies. Even as a little girl I can remember begging my parents to buy me calculators, notebooks and all kinds of silly office gadgets for me to play with. Well I guess some things never change! So today I present to you some of my picks that are fun and functional with plenty of style to add to your home or work office.

online find: mirrored cabinets

I have been on the lookout for quite some time looking for a fabulous mirrored cabinet piece and trying to find a once that is friendly with my budget as well! I surfed on over to Home Decorators and found several in their Reflections line that would be versatile to different tastes, styles and budget!

I adore this dining room, the simple symmetry with the asian
table lamps and the modern mirrored buffet is stunning!

This is the Reflections Westport 3 Piece Cabinet that I bought!
I love how simple it is! It will help illuminate the space its going in.
Can't wait to see it in person!

I don't think most of us will ever tire of the riad/ moroccan
geometric detail. Its a timeless classic.

Another great piece for a great buy! This 3 piece beauty is part




moving!

Well my weekend is over, and it wasn't that long! I am busy packing, unpacking, moving, cleaning... oooh boy just writing that list makes me exhausted! latte anyone? anyways, my husband and I are moving into the cutest apartment in Santa Barbara! Its adorable with white cabinets, black granite countertops, crown molding, all hardwood floors... I feel like I am living (or hope to be soon) living in luxury, once all the cardboard boxes leave for good! And as a plus our neighbors are awesome! I will post pictures soon!

lovely lamp

Check out this Turned Table lamp from West Elm! So pretty! I love the simple yet sophisticated silhouette, and that it is shown in all white! I would love to own a couple of these... hmm future projects maybe!?! Happy Friday!

(the other two lamps shown here are great finds too!)

new rugs from serena & lily

Serena & Lily is such a fabulous company; always the latest in trends yet very sophisticated and timeless. They just released their new line of floor rugs to die for! My favorite is the herringbone patterned one in Orchid/ Army (the fuchsia rug below)! What about you, which is your favorite?
