{house tour: cwb architects}

YAY for long weekends! I'm excited, are you? Any plans? This is pretty much the official last weekend of summer, and we'll be welcoming fall before we know it {I'm secretly excited for fall despite the fact that summer is my favorite season - shhh don't tell!}.

I'm leaving you with a gorgeous house tour via CWB Architects in New York. What actually led me to this home was chasing down the original source for one of the marble slathered bathrooms in my last post. Once I saw the amazing Brooklyn Heights brownstone it belonged to, I knew I had to post the entire place!  Aaahhh, a brownstone in NY, what a dream .... Enjoy ;)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

CWB Architects have so many drool worthy projects, see more here. Happy weekend all!

{lusting: wall to wall marble}

I think I speak for many when I profess my love for marble! In the kitchen or the bathroom, it's my dream to slather my home with this sophisticated & classic stone one day. Here's a look that I am currently coveting: a wall of marble in the bathroom. Whether it be large slabs or smaller marble tiles, it's chic and it's a look that's definitely here to stay.


 
 
 
 
 
 
Do you love it as much as I do? What a dream! On my wish list for sure :)

{5 fashion trends for fall}

Welcome to a brand new week everyone, and the last week of August believe it or not! Looking into September, I'm getting kinda excited about fall fashions. Evenings are already requiring sweaters around here, and I can smell autumn in the air. On that note, here are 5 items that are definitely on my radar for fall:
 
The velvet slipper, or smoking slipper, is all the rage lately. Comfy and cute, I'm particularly smitten with those embroidered with a chic crest {like the ones below from Nine West!}. Preppy all the way.

Olivia Palermo; Nine West
 
Damsel in Dior; source unknown
 
I adore navy blazers! Just a tad softer than black, but still super classy. I picked up a schoolboy blazer from J. Crew on my recent trip to Seattle.

Gwenyth Paltrow; Damsel in Dior
source unknown; Karla's Closet
 
Animal print won't be going anywhere! Amazing how a dash of leopard never fails to make everything look fabulous.

Olivia Palermo; The Blonde Salad
 
I don't even need to justify this one. A smart coat completely speaks for itself, don't you think?
 
 
Last but not least, leather in general will be everywhere. Leather pants & leggings are smokin' - but if they scare you just a bit - you can also find fabulous coated jeans that look like leather, like these below from J Brand.
 
 
Any fall trends you can't wait to get into?

{a late summer weekend + maison gray}

Happy weekend all! Is it still sunny where you are? We should have a beautiful Saturday here so I'll be spending it outdoors.

I stumbled across the summery photographic work of Gray Malin, and I fell in love! You all know I am smitten with beach photography {see here and here}, and Gray's images are a modern twist on those of Massimo Vitali and Christian Chaize.

 
 
 
 
 
Beatiful work isn't it? But sadly still a wee bit out of my price range, especially since I'd love to have a seriously ginormous beach print in my home one day. I think I will have to try my hand at a few amateur shots to blow up on my next beach vacation.
 
Visit Maison Gray to see more of Gray's fabulous photography.
