All That Glitters Is Gold

Since it's my birthday I decided to focus on the stuff I like best: gold glitter!

Oh My God You Guys

I made it. I'm 30. Wow, that was hard to say. I'm sure I will get used to it. Or maybe it's time to start lying about my age...

Yes, it's really me. STOP LAUGHING RIGHT NOW.

Holy crap you guys, this is the best freaking color ever. I will now stop biting my nails so I can wear this glittery nail polish every day.

Headboard Love

All I really want in life is a tufted headboard! Wouldn't I look good propped against it in my kimono? Perhaps with a whiskey and a pile of magazines? Yes, I thought so too. 

Jenny of Little Green Notebook unveiled the most delicious transformation on an old upholstered headboard earlier this week and now I am wondering if I should just make my own. Jenny was kind enough to include step-by-step instructions which don't seem terribly difficult and I think I have enough space in my apartment to tackle the project. Check out Jenny's post to see the full process.

Maybe I'll be really ambitious and try an embellished headboard at some point too?

Or perhaps an embroidery project?

These are a few of my favorite things

Crate & Barrel Petrie Apartment Sofa

Pumpkin Latte!
Spending the day chatting with friends on the couches at Crate & Barrel is one of my favorite things to do. Today I did it all afternoon. With a pumpkin latte.

Best day off ever.

Inspiration for Hanna's Studio

Maggie of Maggie Rose Interiors is hosting a little link party featuring moodboards that incorporate  items from Lamps Plus and you know how I like a good project...

Lamps Plus is a great resource for beautiful lamps like this one but did you know they also carry fabulous home accents like ikat pillows and pyramid-studded mirrors? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Old Roommate Hanna, who used to occasionally grace us with her presence, has asked me for some help redesigning her swanky Park Slope Studio so I've been busy coming up with creative ideas to pimp out her small space with sophisticated basics and some geometric flair. The challenge to Hanna's studio is the shape-  one square room that needs to serve as her living room, dining room, bedroom and workspace. I'll share my ideas for the new layout soon but in the meantime, above is a sneak peak at a few of my ideas for the living room portion of her space. Clean lines and neutral colors reign but the red accessories and geometric accents will give the room some personality and sass. I'm not completely sold that this screams 'Hanna' yet but it's a good start, no?
