Fashion Forward - Going for the Gold

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but gold is in. And not just for the holidays. Even the smallest touch is perfect for adding a little sparkle to your day...or your digs. I’ve long-been crazy about Up In The Air Somewhere, but it seems I develop a new crush almost daily as this lovely trend continues to grow. Oh, and Nate Berkus for HSN…who knew?? Don't forget to check out the other Fashion Forward fabulousness at Obstinate Pursuit!

Working for the Weekend

Well friends, I’m still on a home-office kick and I’m sure you can see why. I’ve seen the desk above several times throughout the past month, and each time I do, I fall deeper in love! I have a specific friend who MUST make it hers, but I can honestly say I think it would look amazing in almost any space. Oh, and I’m equally as obsessed with that bulletin board. Sigh.

Banishing the Bedroom Blues

My best friend has the most fabulous house in San Diego and she’s looking for a way to reinvent her bedroom. Working with her dark, rich woods, and pale, bluish-gray walls, I tried to bring in elements of coastal living in an understated way. There’s just something about these colors and textures that feels very serene to me. And, I love the unexpected single copper chair. I see it next to the bed, playing host to a pile of great books or a beautiful carafe.

Weekly Whiteout

I've fallen in love with many Weekly Whiteout images over the past few weeks, but I must admit I'm completely smitten with this one. Everything about it, from the floors to the lamp to the swinging crib...heaven.


Fashion Forward - Office Space

I tell you, this post started in one direction and then abruptly went in another after last week's crazy work week! It was one of those chained-to-my-desk
Ever had one? Brutal. Anyway, as much as I love white, I've decided my creative side needs a little color and my West Elm desk needs some new companions. I think any of these will do. Don't forget to find a little inspiration of your own with more Fashion Forward posts over at Obstinate Pursuit!

Mellow Yellow

There's something about yellow that just makes me happy. I'm sure this statement shocks my friends though, as I don't think I own ONE yellow home decor item or article of clothing. What can I say? I'm a pale blond and the color is more than a little unflattering. (Unless you think looking like you're rockin' the flu is hot.) My olive-skinned alter ego, however, thinks she could live happily ever after in the look above.

My dear friend over at Blogger's Abode posted the most fabulous apartment recently and I just had to share. It's the home of blogger Busy Bee and honestly, it's all KINDS of amazing.


Fashion Forward - Handmade Happiness

Maybe it’s a sign of the times, or maybe I’m just more observant these days, but lately I’ve really come to appreciate all things handmade. From patchwork pillows to hand-blown glass, I find handcrafted home d├ęcor refreshingly simple. Lucky for me, I don’t seem to be alone.

Roman Holidays

Okay, so I know it's fall and while I love the idea of gearing up my decor for the holidays, it was 92 here yesterday! In my neck of the woods, people are still bbq-ing by the pool instead of making fires in the fireplace. So with blue skies and sandal-weather, this beach-inspired board seemed awfully appropriate. Besides, how great is that dresser??

How fabulous is this kitchen? From the amazing light to the giant countertops to the perfect-fitting stools...pure perfection.


Fashion Forward - A Bold Statement

I don't know about you, but I adore a good stripe. On my shirt or in my home, it's always appropriate in my world. And, during my vacation I was delighted to see this particular trend everywhere! The question is, overhead or underfoot? Don't forget to check out all the other great Fashion Forward posts on Obstinate Pursuit!
