{currently coveting ...}


Hi friends! Hope your week is well so far. I'm itching to shop for spring clothing, you? I've got a few items currently on my wish list; at the very top of that list is this pretty pink blazer from J Crew {40% off right now!!} ...
Eek! I think it needs to come live with me :) I've been scouring pinterest to see how I could style this blazer for work and for play:
 
Atlantic-Pacific; Olivia Palermo
 
source unknown; Atlantic-Pacific
 
Another thing on my wishlist is a well-constructed every-day purse. I'm loving the legacy collection from Coach, it's got a bit of a Celine-inspired look no? And tassles are my fav. Any bags catching your eye lately? I'd love to hear any recommendations as I hunt around!
 
Finally, on a non-fashion related note, have you heard of the 'One Line A Day,' journal? I love this idea. Each day you write one line summing up your experiences/events/accomplishments, and the cool part is that each page of the journal contains a space for the same day over FIVE years. So on the 'July 8th' page you can be reminded of what you did that same day several years before! How neat, I think I'm gonna order one :)
 
 
What's on your current lust list?? I'd love to know!

{art inspiration: tobias tovera}



A while back I fell in love with the above work of San Francisco-based artist Tobias Tovera. And now, I'm honestly head-over-heels for virtually every piece on his website. I dream of having one of his massive canvases covering an entire wall in my dining room! His series of paintings entitled 'Diffusions of Pigment' is a feast for the senses:

 
And I just love the scale! I always say, go BIG or go HOME!

I think he should sell prints of these works, because I have a sneeking suspicion that I can't afford an original :) Just throwing that out there!
 
To see more of his fabulous pieces, visit his site here.

{house tour: via schuyler samperton}

Haven't had a full house tour over here for a while! I love looking through the portfolio's of talented designers - but I REALLY love when I find a whole house worth falling in love with, not just a room or two. LA-based interior designer Schuyler Samperton is the designer behind this lovely Hancock Park home, there are so many traditional (and quirky!) details to love.

 
 
 
 
Ahhhh, De gournay hand-painted wallcoverings make my heart flutter every time!
 
 
Can you spot the super-cute framed shoes?
 
 
 
Who knew The Simpson's could look so chic? This is a great alternative to teenagers pinning posters all over their walls!
 
 
 
 
Yep, I could do with this backyard ...
 
 
What a great home! To see more of Samperton's design work visit her lovely portfolio here.

{mwm in luxe magazine ...}


Happy Friday all! Have you seen Melissa Warner Rothblum's (of Massucco Warner Miller) latest project published in Luxe magazine? I'm drooling over it, she is one talented designer! Here are photos from their Facebook page:

 
Ahhh, I NEED to use a borne settee in my home one day, I've been in love with them forever!!
 
 
 
See that hint of Fornasetti perfection from the entryway? I've been DYING to use that paper in a powder room :)
 
 
 
Too many great pieces to mention in the photo above - can you believe that settee, and the laqcuered cobalt side table??
 
 
 
What a stunning home! Be sure to check out more from Melissa over on MWM's website.
 
And in case you missed, I was visiting La Dolce Vita yesterday, dissecting the details of what makes a 'Sarah Richardson master bedroom.' I've listed 5 elements she tends to implement in her bedroom designs, be sure to check it out here. Happy weekend!
