INTERIOR DESIGN: Industrial Lighting

I love mixing the old with the new and one of the best way to add a little historic charm to your interior is with the lighting.  Here are some designs that inspire me... enjoy!

VINTAGE FINDS: Lucky Little Dot

Many of you know that I am a little obsessed with Lucky Little Dot. I just love their collection of unique vintage and industrial items.  Here is a run down of my latest favorites from their lovely etsy shop! Enjoy!


This is such an incredibly beautiful 4th of July party... but how fun for Memorial Day! I am in the mood for neighborhood block parties, relaxing by our fire pit and enjoying long evenings outside. *love*

DESIGN: Ink + Wit

Tara Hogan of Ink + Wit is one of my favorite designers - she has mastered the ability of keeping designs simple yet adding enough detail to make them fresh and interesting.  I was so excited when I found out that she was now selling her designs as stamps! Check out the Arctic Friends Stamp set here.

DESIGN: Isabelle Abramson

I am simply amazed by the beautiful intricate detail of this porcelain fruit bowl... so feminine and delicate!  Check out the rest of Isabelle Abramson's amazing collection here.

OUTDOORS: Whimsical Treehouse

Architect Robert Harvey Oshatz has created this amazing artistic piece of architecture in the woods of Portland, Oregon, for a client who’s love of music would be translated into a modern home. So much fun!

FASHION: Orla Kiely Spring 2011

I just love how fun Orla Kiely's spring line is... I just want to drive down the 101 and find a beach and hang out for a month or two.

FOODIE: Sugar Bar

You know you are having a good day when you are walking your dogs down the street to get the mail and your neighbor asks you if you can take some of the most scrumptious Key Lime Cupcakes home with you as she had just started her own cupcake business, Sugar Bar. SERIOUSLY!? I kid you not that this is one of the best cupcakes I have ever had and I admit that I've had a couple (ok, a lot more than a couple) so I know what I am talking about. I highly recommend that you check out her site and pass the word along... love it!!  ps. I love their slogan: "at this bakery, it's ALWAYS Happy Hour!"  so fun!

DESIGN: Eloise Renouf

Check out these beautiful prints by textile and stationary designer Eloise Renouf.  She does such a fabulous job capturing nature with simple yet interesting textures and designs.  Just lovely!

FASHION: Zooey Dechanel + Oliver Peoples

A little inspiration from two of my favorites: Zooey Dechanel + Oliver Peoples.  I just love her whimsical style and how it is meshed with the iconic styles of Oliver Peoples in this 2008 ad campaign.

I just love the super fun party blog Hip Hip Hooray! This smoothie bar party would be so much fun as part of a backyard garden brunch.  I love all the fresh fruit and bright colors.  Delish!


As the weather warms up, I cannot wait have more backyard parties! I've always wanted to have an outdoor movie night so I think we'll have to give it a go this year.  Here are some of my favorite moments of inspiration - check out that amazing lighting!!
