The story behind this post starts off with this beautiful painting by Laura Dro. Laura is a very talented artist with such a defined color aesthetic. You need to see her paintings and prints, they will brighten up your life. This painting in particular inspired this colorful outfit. I'm assuming those are peonies and well with them everywhere I turn I knew I just had to post it. You all know I love color and mixing such strong tones is not for everyone, but I think this summery outfit is so cute and wearable.
I'm beyond excited about this giveaway! One of my favorite companies is offering one lucky reader a gift certificate for $100. And can you guess what fabulous company its from??!! None other than Lulu and Georgia, my go-to for rugs and beautiful accessories. I'm not sure if my love affair with Lulu and Georgia started when my friend Erika announced their launch as she had worked on their branding and website. Or if it started when I got to know some of the fabulous ladies that work there like Michaela and Alexa. But really I think it all started when I saw their rugs! This one in particular has had me quite obsessed.
Afton is the winner of the giveaway! (Number 6- generated by Random.org). I'm travelling and don't have photoshop otherwise I would have posted an image of the random number generator. But I know you all trust me!!
Congrats Afton! I will have Gold and Gray contact you. And thanks so much to Gold and Gray for such a fun and generous giveaway that I know everyone is in love with.
Stick around for another amazing giveaway coming up in a bit!! I like to pamper you! xx
So excited to have the fifth edition of the "We love" series. Here was the last post in the series in case you missed it. To refresh your memory Sam from The Peak of Tres Chic and I will be gathering inspiration under a certain theme a couple of times a month and sharing it with you. Sam will guest post here in my blog and I will post at Sam's. I guess you could say we are swapping for the day. This time around its all about CORAL!!
I have been noticing that tile is getting interesting and fun lately. I feel like it's having a comeback. Companies are creating more beautiful designs and designers are using it in more daring ways. This tile above is so simple but in a small room like this with high ceilings it makes a statement. Here are other great ideas-
Happy Friday friends! Wao, lately it feels like such an accomplishment to get to Friday. Well, it's my husband's birthday this weekend which means we get to have some cake. I'm debating which cake to make for him. It won't be chocolate. We have made too many chocolate ones in the last few weeks (I know that chocolate cake is misleading up there, but it is pretty right?) He loves this lemon olive oil cake that I have made for him many times before and has very quickly devoured, but he also loves this almond cake which I have never made him and would love to try. I will let you know next week which one I chose. (oh and I want to get him one or two of these for on top of his desk).
You may or may not know that my husband is from Spain so we go often to visit family. Our trip is coming up soon and we have all started to daydream about it. My daughter is dying to see her grandma and have churros con chocolate, my husband just wants to sleep, and I'm dying to browse some of my favorite stores and eat many meringues. One of my favorite stores here is Hoss Intropia. Its clothing is sophisticated, modern, and chic all at a very attractive price point (probably around J.Crew prices?). Miguel Palacio who is a well established high-fashion Spanish designer has been doing a collaboration with Hoss Intropia every season for the last few years. It is always pretty fab. And so, when I came accross his apartment I just had to share. After seeing it I know two things, I need a cheetah statue, or two, and Mr. Palacio and I are lighting soulmates. I heart every single one of his lighting options.
