More loves of Fall

Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad is such an inspirational person. As a woman, she presents herself as a classy, real, loving friend. I'd love to meet her one day.

I'm a faithful follower of HRHCollection, she first started with just a blog to share fashion and some design but then she started doing videos of OOTD and make up routines. She's very inspirational and has great things to look at. This is an image from her new apartment. Loving everything about it.

The shelves infront of the small pattern is a simple, cute idea and my favorite color combo lately is any shade of blue paired with pink.

A vintage touch with this luggage chest looks great as a subtle, rustic table to display your alcohol.

Bench Nook.

Breakfast nook above or a nook for taking off your shoes. Love both.

Color and looking into Fall

I love the nautical stripes paired with casual jeans and brights pieces. A relaxed, yet put together look.
Bright pants are all the rage this summer and even into the fall. These orange pants I came across look great into the fall, paired with the neutral top and brown jacket.
Another pair of bright bottoms, with more of the wide leg, looks great with the jean on top of this outfit.

Another project

Some damages I'll need to repair before the fun part starts!!

The beautiful front of the one thats in one piece.

A side detail of the coloring and legs

The second one is in two pieces but no chew marks, so less repairs!

Can't wait to refinish and restore these two beautiful, antique, french nightstands, complete with marble tops and porcelain inside one!

Oh Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

Tomorrow is my first day at my internship with HFI Brands and besides the anxious feelings I have for my first project, I want to look the part! I'm going to curl my hair with a 1 inch barrel to create the soft waves like Lauren Conrad in the photo above. As for clothing, its not going to be that nice tomorrow so I'm thinking a casual outfit like loose fitting tee, probably light pink and black leggings or dark wash jeans. Along with that I'm going to wear my black patent flats and pearl earrings. Wish me luck!!!

I love BOWS!!! And the messy updo in the top photo with the headband is fabulous! In the bottom photo, the girl has a dewy, classic make up look and beautiful straight, volumed hair!!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! My mom always draws those cute connecting elephants on napkins and I found this sketch on Disney's twitter from the movie "Dumbo"!

Blue & Green.

The light blue in the background, green of the plant, and pink of the candy are the three colors we have decided on for our new palette in the living room at my apartment! I love the calm, sophisticated yet fun combination and can't wait to make new pillows & purchase new wall decor!

The beautiful sofa at the end of the bed is a soft touch to the bedroom that I'd love to incorporate with my new bedroom plan by adding a small chair and full ottoman.

This living. Is so cute.

My addiction to closets is still just as strong! I enjoy the crisp white shelves of this closet along with the delicate touch of color in the background and lighting.

I'm excited for my Easter plans tomorrow! Mass with my boyfriend, brunch at an amazing restaurant called Bin 33 in Greensboro, NC, and then driving home to have dinner with my parents, brother, his girlfriend, and my boyfriend!! This little guy in the picture just adds to my excitement of the Easter bunny!!

The end of the semester is SO very close! I am currently hand drawing a few perspectives of my studio project and hoping I'm finished in time to go downtown tomorrow night! After tomorrow night, I'll be done for a full week meaning lots of tanning by the pool, sleeping, exercising and anything I want!!

Queen of Classy

In light of the Carolina Cup being this past weekend, I chose two pictures of Audrey Hepburn in her "derby-esque" hats. She is one of my icons and she defines the word class.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Miss Organized 2011

I came across this office space on cococozy and it really makes me want to create a room with bookshelves and an interesting mix of chairs, around a crisp white table. Hopefully I'll be able to create a space like this soon.

For a more upbeat, colorful environment, I snagged this picture with my phone of a space in the Lilly Pulitzer showroom. The pin up wall of fabric is common but the fabric is wonderful and the metal buttons trimming the fabric is a nice dynamic. Also the panels are not attached to the wall so they are movable. Other then that, the pink and turquoise pulled from the plaid print is what really catches my eye and adds a comfortable leave to your office space.

High Point Furniture Market

I really shouldn't be awake right now because in 13 hours I will be at the opening day of the High Point Furniture Market working with HFI Brands. They feature Hotel Maison, Barclay Butera Lifestyle, peoploungers, and MY PERSONAL FAVORITE Lilly Pulitzer Home (image above). This is an incredible opportunity for me to work along side with such inspirational people and meet an enormous amount of possible connections. I can't wait to be involved with the hustle and bustle of the beautiful furniture market. Wish me luck!

Bedroom dreaming


Mr. Big: We're getting married. Should we get you a diamond?
Carrie Bradshaw: No. No. Just get me a really big closet.

Every woman loves a closet where she can show off all of her beautiful clothes, bags, and shoes! I personally love to hang up everything or folded on a shelve because nothing of mine deserves to be hidden in a drawer. Displaying the stuff that shows your personality the best are the clothes you wear everyday and are most women's' prized possessions that they spend majority of their paycheck on (at least I know I do!).

Color. color. Color.

I plan on painting my next bedroom and having a pink accent wall. I have it ALL planned out! One large wall in "Carnation pink" with my three detailed mirrors enhancing the wall. My bedding consisting of a lush, white down comforter and colorful, preferably Lilly Pulitzer, sheets and a few decorative, throw pillows to add some flare when the bed is made up. The headboard my mom and I made from an old five panel door, turned vertical and painted black will be above my bed. My beautiful vanity with three panel mirror will remain on display, as well as my make-shift TV stand that used to be my twin bed mantle. I told you, I had it ALL planned out!

*Just post-poned till the end of summer!!!
