Down time is something we all NEED! I have not had enough lately and to top it off my brain is working overtime at 2 a.m.! I am thrilled to have a second to sit and blog tonight. It's something I usually love to start my day with but I've had a number of early morning meetings instead. (no complaints - I do LOVE my career) but blogging keeps me grounded, as does exercise. I needed some bohemian influence this week for a project so I decided to hop over to one of my favorite insta sites - Rebecca de Ravenel.  I live by the beach so I am ADORING her latest earring collection and ready to wear collection. Hell, I basically love everything else she designs, wears and resides in!! Take a peek - Follow Rebecca on instagram: here

Love the look - Jumpsuits

With graduation and summer kick off parties on the horizon, I'm going to mix it up and switch out some of my staple dresses for a Springy jumpsuit or two! Not every jumpsuit is created equal and some are more flattering than others, with that said, these two are feminine and flirty! (one even has pockets, eek)

Living in London

This week has been bananas but I can't let it pass without posting a little London love in honor of the upcoming royal wedding. Maybe you are over the chatter but I think it is dreamy escapism at its best. 

De Gournay heiress Hannah Cecil Gurney's home.

I came across Ben Pentreath's work, this home in London is filled with beautiful attention to detail a gorgeous color palette.

Shelter Loves

Good Morning! I'm just back from NYC, I have some "life" catching up to do today! We did not let the rain ruin our Mother's Day trip. We altered our plans a bit but snuck in a Broadway show, School of Rock and some sight seeing! Here is what I'm loving this week. I have a number of exciting projects going on and am always brainstorming and taking in inspiration....Wishing you a fabulous week!

1. This chair!!! Does anyone know the source? I have the perfect client for it.
2.  I used to wear scarves around my neck in a very chic way! I still have quite a collection and when my grandmother passed away, I was happy to inherit some of hers. I'm thinking I may try out the wrist wrap with a smaller one. Here is a good size
3. I'm planning to plant a hosta garden in the shady spots of my yard! I need a game plan soon.
4. We all get into un-comfy situations!! Perspective is everything.
5. The shopping and fashion in Manhattan is INSANE. I need to head back with a posse of girl friends.
6. The art deco inspired architecture. We stayed next to the Chrysler building. Image by: Herni Silberman.
7. A camel bag for Spring and Summer. This one is a classic

Love the look - cropped wide leg jean - Yay or Nay?

Hola, my lovies! So I've heard and read quite a few mixed reviews on the latest trend: cropped wide leg jeans (aka culottes). Now, if you're like me and were born pre-1985, than you most likely remember culottes. In fact, I think my Mom had a similar pair to the J.Crew pair pictured - (right side). They are everywhere this Spring and when worn correctly, look adorable. I still can't embrace the 'extreme' wide leg version, I'm pretty sure that I would look ridiculous in them. The two pairs worn above look fabulous and work because the top is more fitted and they've been modernized in comparison to their 1970's cousin. Leandra Medine Cohen, seems to rock everything like a champ, even months after having a baby!!

Borrowed Light

The month of May has finally arrived and with that, I am eager to tackle a few long awaited projects inside and out around my home. One of which includes Emerson's room. We have finally agreed on a paint color and possibly even a simple accent wallpaper (I rarely use accent walls but sometimes in a child's room they add depth and interest). I included one image a few months back of Farrow and Ball's dreamy shade: Borrowed Light. Here are some examples and all its glory:
