daily inspiration: apartment 34

Hello luvies! Erin from Apartment 34 here – and so tickled that Caitlin invited me to share my own inspiration vignette. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

I’m currently reveling in treasures I received from family and friends over the holidays. They include a bevy of great coffee table books – I cannot stop flipping back and forth through 100 Years of Fashion Illustration. It’s so amazing to see how times have and have not changed! I also received incredibly thoughtful gifts including the lovely rose gold necklace from Miss Caitlin herself, the gold painted paper mache bowl from Etsy (I’m using to hold a little collection of glass marbles that I love) and a 2012 calendar featuring water color images of Seattle, gifted by my mom. I think she wanted to make sure I don’t forget where I’m from!

I’m also smitten with our holiday decor which includes a pair of stunning white candle sticks that I found in the Barneys home department (on sale!), a little bud vase and a vase full of magnolia branches that is sitting atop our coffee table. They add a touch of glamour and softness to the loft.

Here’s to finding inspiration in what surrounds you!

Hope all of you have a wonderful and inspiring new year.
