west coast

Apologies for the lack of posts... initially thought I would post a lot while at home, but have been enjoying being a little disconnected from everything... here are just a few photos from the past few days.  Hope you all are enjoying the last of 2011!  More soon... and many more photos to share!

Greetings from the Bay Area!  I am enjoying restful time at home... sleeping in, catching up with old friends and taking in the beauty of California.  Merry Christmas to all, hope your evenings are filled with beauty and peace.

'Tis the season.

faux fur

all images via my pinterest, last image via Lonny Mag
Maybe it's the cold weather, but lately I am loving these bedroom images.... they have me thinking about adding a touch of fur to my bed.  I think it adds a certain "je ne sais quoi" to a bedroom... warmth, softness, textural depth and little bit of luxury... I especially love the look of layered bedding, using a few different textures but all in the same color palette.  What do you think?

I am officially done with finals!!  Feeling accomplished and relieved... and exhausted!  Today was spent lounging / catching up on some reading / trying to stay cozy in this freezing weather.  Hope you all had wonderful weekends... more frequent posts to follow!

this week

I am beyond exhausted.... just put on a pot of coffee for what's going to be another late night.  Cannot wait until finals are over and I can rest... I promise to be more present after this weekend!  For now though, a few pinterest images I am loving this week.

color crush: pale peach

This week, inspired by this Dale Frank painting I found on one of my favorite tumblrs, I am crushing on the palest peaches... soft, cozy, warm, inviting.  All things needed when the chill sets in.

Bracelets or books, what's not to love about a whole lot of a good thing?
 Happy Friday lovelies... hope you have a whole lot of good in your day today.

Things I have been lusting over/daydreaming about as of late: (besides the end of finals)... a perfectly styled bar, time to sit and enjoy a perfect cup of coffee, a striped rug in the bedroom, and a pop-over coat for the colder weather that's supposedly headed this way.

a place to lounge

So.... this week is hectic.  It is only Tuesday and already I am feeling a little burnt out!  Much to do and very little time to sit about... so of course I am longing for a comfy couch, a large mug of tea and a good book or two (or three).  I am loving aspects of all of these neutral living rooms... all cozy in their own way but also clean and simple...  which do you prefer?

Ahhh what I would do to be in any of these rooms right now, reading and lounging...
Hope you all are having wonderful Tuesdays and find some cozy peacefulness somewhere within
all the hustle and bustle of this busy season!

Very much enjoying the classic combo of red, white and blue in these two images... wish I were headed out to a fabulous brunch or lounging around the house reading, but as there are only TWO WEEKS of the semester left, I am up to my eyeballs in projects today!  
Hope you are all having wonderful Sundays.
