While wandering aimlessly around Target the other day, I was stopped dead in my tracks by these plus sign pattern sheets. Love at first sight people! Simple, elegant, and just plain lovely! Here’s the clincher, king sized sheets for only $38.99! Hello ladies, get in m’cart! Of course I bought two sets, right? I mean, you can’t have enough sheets. Besides, look at them! They’re adorable! They’re so cute and surprisingly soft, I don’t even want to get out of bed today (or maybe I just don’t want to go to spin class). I digress. Anyhoo, let’s get a little crazy with plus signs…you’ve been warned.
MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
hello lovelies! while perusing the interwebs a month ago, i ran across the most adorable table i’ve ever laid eyes on. from the genius mind of brooklyn based designer katy skelton, please meet, the zelda table.
i mean, hairpin brass legs, a unique engineered concrete triangle top the is simple, classic, modern, smart and sexy (can a table be sexy?) all in the same breath! yowza! get in my shopping cart stat! and that is what happened…it was seriously love at first sight. in fact, i think i would put one in every room if i could. so i pre-ordered this puppy and have been anxiously awaiting its arrival. and waited and waited and waited…until today…i might have peed a tiny bit when the ups man ran the doorbell…but that is probably tmi.
sometimes people ask me, “hey, how would you define your decorating style?”, and i usually just ramble or stumble upon my words. it’s hard to describe what my style really is? it’s an eclectic, vintage, classic, mid-century modern, industrial, with a dash of mantiques…but really it is hard to explain…i’d recognize it if i saw it someone’s home, hmmmm, kinda girly but not really girly, kinda manly but not really manly…a hint of old granny, but not shabby chic…a little brady bunch sans the color rust but there are usually pops of orange…furniture from leave it to beaver’s home…yes, i have a momofuko cookbook on display…yes, i have vintage cameras (and know how to use them)…how does it all seem to work? i don’t know, maybe some visuals will help?
some of my furniture is new from room and board, pure home or stitch in chicago, but some pieces are from sellers i’ve found who refinish, restore or reupholster vintage furniture…these are usually my favorite pieces. they come with a story. they have held up over time. they are sturdy. they have heft. they were well made…hell, they lasted 30-40 years, and now have a whole new life. my vintage stores of choice…well, i can’t give you all of my secrets today…but if i had to name a few, they would be: scout, brimfield, an orange moon and white attic. and now that you know my secret places, you have to promise to keep them to yourself, and please don’t buy every cool piece or i might have to hurt cha.

there’s no denying it, i’m a sucker for a gallery wall. i love EVERYTHING about them! when we moved, i thought the boy might move out with how many collages of wall decor he had to hang. one would think after 3 years i might run out of wall space, but no…i keep finding new art or photography that must go in the house. in this post i’ve collected a few inspiring walls that make my heart swoon.
