Interiors || Andrew Brown

I recently learned about Andrew Brown and his beautiful interiors and have really enjoyed looking through his portfolio. I picked out here a few of my favorite shots. I find his style classic yet eclectic and very curated. There are some wonderful ideas to gather from these images.....upholstered double doors with nailheads, beautiful gallery walls, dark and white walls combined, mirrors above beds....take a peek and get inspired-


Interiors || Lenny Kravitz for CB2

Now we can all have a bit of Lenny Kravitz style!  I'm so excited about his collaboration with CB2.  I have, for some years, lusted after his Paris apartment. It's cool, edgy and comfortable.  Definitely fit for a rock star.  And the fact that he has a Pedro Friedeberg gold chair in his bathroom confirms the fact that he has good taste.  His CB2 collection is pretty fab- the items are modern and cool at CB2 prices ( a pretty good combination in my opnion). Let me show you a few favorites of this collaboration-


Monograms for the Home by Kimberly Whitman

If you love monograms you will adore this book, Monograms for the Home, by Kimberly Whitman. Growing up I always had the prettiest monogrammed sheets and towels with my first and middle name initials "AM"- for Albertina Maria.  Because all these sheets and towels were so beautiful and of such good quality my mom kept everything for her grandchildren to enjoy someday.  And good thing we had a daughter because now all these monogrammed treasures could come out to see the light of day again.  And, of course, I was going to make sure my daughter's first and middle initial would also be "AM", so she could give a second life to all my childhood sheets and towels.  

When monograms are this important to you, you know you will absolutely adore a book about the topic, especially when there is such fabulous monogram inspiration behind every page. A book like this can only have been created by someone with amazing style and taste and Kimberly Whitman unites these qualities and then some.  She really takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary. She is beautiful, sweet and so hardworking (this is her seventh book!), plus she has a blog (for all those interior design readers she was part of the One Room Challenge this last Spring as well)  writes articles for magazines, does radio and TV appearances, and is mother to two adorable kids. The launch of her book, Monograms for the Home,  comes at a perfect time for the inauguration of Halo Home, a line of spectacular linens she designed that can be monogrammed.  Here they are-


On My Mind || Two amazing tops and one fine credenza

I feel like dark blue is having it's moment in interior design. I have seen fabulous dark blue libraries, dining rooms, living rooms (mine for example) and maybe it's through all this exposure that I love it even more as time passes.  This blue credenza would look spectacular anywhere, but I can really see it in a monochromatic blue room.  I wish I could build furniture and make one for myself.  Can you imagine being able to build furniture?  Not Ikea hacks like the ones I have done, but real solid furniture. I should look into some workshop classes. Anyway, some other cute items I found around the web-

My Dining Table is Mad for Plaid

* This post is sponsored by Target

It's officially fall, which is very exciting.  It's my favorite time of the year! (And my daughter's! She already got her Halloween costume!).  Aside from the cooler temperatures which I hope arrive soon, I love that I get to break out the plaid.  I have the coziest and cutest plaid shirts ever.  It's a look I have been rocking since high school, but I have to admit plaid has never really made it into my home.  Until now!! And I could not be more excited! 

Plaid is a classic and never goes out of style. It has been around since the Scots and continues to adapt to modern fashions.   So I was thrilled to add my own spin to plaid with the table setting I want to share with you today.  There are so many cute plaid items at Target right now, I could barely make up my mind! Mad for plaid is right! I was in heaven.  Let me show you how I styled my table-
