deep breath

What a crazy week it has been.  We've been through an earthquake and a hurricane in one week leaving us with a) some new experiences as East Coasters and b) a lack of electricity and a lot of leaks.  Not to mention our car died on top of that.  Trying to get our lives back on track has been pretty chaotic... test driving new cars, getting a new mattress (to replace the sopping wet one from lovely Irene), hiring contractors to repair the leaks, and a million other errands/appointments/projects as usual.  You would think this weekend would be the perfect time to catch our breath, but that's pretty jam packed as well!  Come Sunday evening, I want to be sitting somewhere cozy like this while reading a good book...



at home with anita kaushal

I absolutely love these photos of designer Anita Kaushal's home in London.  She's managed to simplify everything down to mostly just the bare essentials while still giving a well designed, elegant appeal to each space.  This can be very tricky and can look sparse and messy if done incorrectly but, she's pulled it off beautifully.  Kudos!!  I'm especially loving that gorgeous dining table, the indoor swing, and the art in the children's bathroom.

global designs from niki jones

One of my latest favorite finds has got to be Niki Jones.  With all of the patterns and colors, their pieces make you feel like you took a vacation somewhere in the Far East and brought back some fabulous flea market finds.  Their furniture is all hand painted with such great detail and their fabrics look so warm and inviting.  You must check out their more colorful items as well, but here are just a few of the items on my wish list!
