a new week + a winner!


Good morning everyone, it’s a new week and after a weekend spent slowing down and unwinding, I’m ready to take on the week. We headed up to Portland on a last minute trip – spent mornings out on the porch enjoying homemade breakfast with the scent of Jasmine in the air, went to Alder & Co (my favorite new Portland store) and spent entirely too much money. We also went to the local tobacco shop to pick up some new glossies and ended the day with a meal at Caffe Mingo that was out of this world – let’s just say it was the weekend that I totally needed to get recharged.


As I mentioned last week, I’m going to start giving you a peek at the items that have inspired me over the last week: the ever so stunning House Beautiful which I can’t seem to put down, a mint Julip cup I picked up at the flea market, my new favorite bracelet I can’t seem to stop wearing, Sibella Court’s NYC guide and bright new lip gloss that I love.

Also, I’ve been overjoyed with all of your comments about our home being featured on Design*Sponge – your support means the world to me. Tomorrow I’ll begin posting details about each part of the apartment with more detailed photos, sources, a floor plan and more. Many of you are emailing and commenting, so just watch out for the posts!


And now for the WINNER of the West Elm Parsons Tower giveaway is . . . Tobe of Beacause It’s Awesome! A huge congratulations to you – I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I’ll be contacting you soon about details.


Have a wonderful week lovelies! Hope it is a great one!
