FROM MY SHOPPING CART / 03

february went by soquickly and now it’s already mid-march — what! the last six weeks were a complete blur. overall february was a good month, ending with an impromptu weekend getaway to new hampshire. the snow was up to our waist, our phones were out of reach, and we made too many bloody marys over three days. it was exactly what i needed. beyond work and my brief technology detox, i’ve been doing p-l-e-n-t-y of window shopping. lots of good things from urban outfitters and lou and grey:

target sells the best candles imho. they smell amazing and come in really cute containers — i almost always buy (or want to buy) a new candle when i’m shopping there. this terrazzo option is especially good. not only is terrazzo very in right now, this is also an inexpensive and low-commitment way to play with this trend.

i found this website through pinterest and am so tempted to buy something: epherma forever sells vintage magazines like these gorgeous issues of vogue and architectural digest from the 40s and 70s. so cool, right?

JUST ADD PRINTS / OPHELIA PANG

happy new year! can you believe 2019 is already here, not to mention we’re already a week in?! it’s wild. i started my year with a cold — the too-sick-to-leave-your-house kind — and spent nye on the couch watching a movie marathon with tissues and chinese takeout. thankfully i’m back to feeling myself again, and it feels like 2019 is just about to start. i finally bought a planner (this one from ban.do), spent the day prepping healthy meals for the week, and even got a blog post up. so far so good.

i haven’t done a post like this in ages (!) and felt like bringing it back (hopefully) as a regular series. i love the no-print outfit in this post — blue and rust are an amazing combination. buuuut i couldn’t help myself, and added a fun print to spice things up. this beautiful ophelia pang geometric pattern is bright and happy, and totally transforms the look.

NEW ARRIVALS / CB2 FALL

never have i ever connected with a collection of home wares as deeply as i have with cb2's fall arrivals. take a minute to appreciate it all: the cane furniture, pops of dandelion yellow, vintage vibes, and that shell armchair -- all of it is coming home with me. (or so i wish). but as i drift back to planet earth, i still feel the need to transform my personal aesthetic to match this perfectly curated collection of vintage meets modern. one that is effortless and worldly, but still comfortable and inviting; like you're always just coming back from a trip abroad with that perfect found piece for your home in tow. yeah, i could live with that.

in all seriousness, this fall collection is really good and was worth sharing. i managed to narrow allll of cb2's new arrivals down to 12 favorites, but if i had to choose i think my #1 has to be the cane desk -- it feels so glamorous.

SHE LIVES HERE / A COLORBLOCK KITCHEN
KITCHEN ENVY / A CHARMING 1930'S RENO

a little home inspiration for your friday morning, and it's realllly cute.

this charming old-meets-new kitchen is everything you'd ever want in a home. there is a subtle nod to the house's original 1939 Tudor aesthetic, but with modern delights -- like that tiled floor! there's a lot going on, but everything works together seamlessly. from the brass elements to the special details (like an oil painting, and gingham tea towels), this kitchen was curated to perfection. per-fect-tion. 

the emerald green cabinets made me really fall in love with this kitchen. i would have never thought to use dark green for a kitchen cabinet, but i like it so much more than the traditional white or wood. it's a refreshing change.

a close up of this gorgeous floor. and that gorgeous stove.

every kitchen needs a space to display a collection of curated objects, cookbooks, and pretty bowls. i love the idea of adding an oil painting to the mix.

the floating wood shelves add a much needed natural texture in this pattern-happy room, and a place for your eye to rest. i love that the shelves add a warm farmhouse feel, especially when paired with that perfect porcelain sink.

another little nook for dishes and collectables next to a handsome smeg refrigerator -- one appliance that will permanently live in my fictitious dream home (i've been coveting smeg's toaster too).

THE COLLECTION WITH THE DUCK MOTIF

there's something so sweet about this resort collection by Giorgio Armani's protégé, Stella Jean. the monkey print reminds me of those plastic hanging monkeys us 90s kids played with, and the handpainted ducks are reminiscent of nursery rhymes. with a whimsical sense of humor, Stella Jean's designs are a breath of fresh air -- just check out her other collections, my favorites being Spring 2016 RTW and Resort 2017. beyond the whimsical prints, i especially love the layering and styling choices: cool slides, delicate everyday earrings and plenty of great pattern mixing moments (many of which include a bold stripe).


TEN / PRINTED STRAW BAGS

straw bags are all the rage this summer, and i'm fully embracing it. in fact, a straw bag is the perfect finishing touch to a casual summer dress, and is every beach goer's must-have accessory. these natural beauties have been on my wish list for the past few months, and i think i'm close to finding my perfect match. since there are so many great options out there, i wanted to share ten of my favorites -- from stripes, to fringe, and polka dots, i kind of want them all:

BACK NEVER
AN OPULENT FLAT IN INDIA

this apartment is stunning -- full of unapologetically bright colors and exciting pattern combinations. i know i say this a lot, but can i please live here?

this red and white kitchen is my favorite room out of the whole home tour, and it might be easy to see why -- it's really all about the floral walls & zig-zag ceiling. both are actually hand-painted, and the high ceilings help make an otherwise intimidating combination work impeccably. i love that the owner took a risk with this; the mural makes the space feel complete.

this home is a one-room flat located in a hotel in Jaipur, India. six years ago, Dutch fashion designer, Marie-Anne Oudejans (most known for her work with Tocca), moved to this royal city in hopes of finding adventure. based on how cool this apartment is, it seems like she found what she was looking for. every corner is dripping with opulent details -- like this golden mirror frame, and funky canopy bench -- but it has enough places for your eye to rest, like the simple floors and calming blue paint.

fun fact about Jaipur: it is known as the Pink City of India due to its salmon-colored buildings. Jaipur is also the country's epicenter for shopping where you can find treasures like gems, textiles, carpets, antiques and jewelry.

upholstered headboards are quite common, yet you never see them mixed with a metal canopy bed. noted.
