Friday Favorites



one: small cake stand with ruffles by vesselsandwares
two: sparkle philosophy from florabond
three: spring tulip from Emmalynne
four: sly bear from stitchface

I was tagged at the beginning of the week by Rachel and Aimee to find a photo of an interior that most represents me. This was hard to do, because I inevitably found four or five that I wanted to post. I finally found one that seemed to combine a lot of my favorite colors, tones, and "vibes." I'm big on vibes--it's the sixth sense at work, telling me that a room feels like home, that it feels safe and cozy. Warm colors, soft textures, cozy nooks, all make me feel at home. I'm going to tag these three ladies: Blaze Danielle, Periwinklebloom, and Lotta.

i love the idea of a vintage chair instead of a nightstand. it reminds me of carrie's apartment in sex and the city!
