These arrived in the mail today, and I have to say they look even better in person.  Super soft leather, snake skin embossed suede, and the d'orsay ish cut outs keep them slightly fem. Once they went on sale for $30 at H&M they sold out in a heart beat, but I snagged a pair thanks to Poachit, have you heard of it yet? Pretty much the best idea ever...kinda like pinterest; you paste a URL of something you want and you get an email when it goes on sale.  BRILLIANT

I've mentioned my love of Rorschach prints before, and I've just stumbled upon 2 more matching prints, LOVE these!!! I sent the high res jpegs to Costco for photo printing on luster paper, and 1 day and $11 later I had two gorgeous prints to frame and hang in my bedroom.  Redoing the office for the Apartment Therapy Room Cure (photos to come) inspired me to swap out the rest of the art in my house and tackle some other mini projects in other rooms. Hurray.

All I Want...

Here's my Christmas wish list: pelican plate, basket, boots, shoes, leather box clutch, H&M  /  sunnies Revolve  /  pants Zara   /  candle CB2  /  Chloe Rose Sephora  /    canvas clutch F21  /  cartier bracelet (yea right)

Beach Print

I'm over the gallery wall that I have hanging in the living room above the couch. I'm not looking forward to patching all the nail holes, but I am loving all the aerial beach shots that have been popping up on pintrest inspired by Gray Malin.

I just ordered this lovely area rug at rugsusa.com for my bedroom, they're currently doing a 75% off month long black friday sale. I love the soft color palate and I'm hoping that this one will look even better with age.
Of course I ran it by my husband to make sure it wasn't too girly, but he liked the pattern as well, and our walls are dark dark gray, and our furniture is more on the mid century masculine side (dresser, and accent chair) so I think we're safe. A few months ago I picked up an awesome turkish kilim rug, but at just 5x8 it was way way way too small for our 14x10 bedroom. The new rug is just shy of 8x10 which sounded better, but I had to play around with pixlr to visualize exactly how it would look in the space with our bed/nightstands/dresser...not bad!!!

*This is not a sponsored post AT ALL, man I wish they would send me free rugs in exchange for a post

I found this awesome linen fabric at Joannes of all places. The photo makes it yellowy but it's really a cream background with bright orange, pink and red flowers and scattered with phoenix birds, or maybe they're cranes...

I've been pinning patterned maxi dresses for some time now (my best inspiration shots are below), I think I may run back in grab a few yards of it, and transform something I already own into a mixed pattern maxi dress.

Check back for before and after shots.

Have a great weekend!

Office Cure

Our office has needed some TLC for quite some time now, so when I started the Apartment Therapy Home Cure I knew I'd pick this room to be "cured".  Currently the walls are the same avocado green that I slapped on shortly after we moved in (avocado...what was I thinking) and this room has turned into a dumping ground for the whole house, which is kind of a bummer since we really need our office back (my husband is a teacher).  We're up to step #4 now-set up the outbox, man I wish I could put the whole room in the outbox and start fresh. This time around I'm going with softer paint, since it's a small room, maybe that pale sage, or milky cream.  I also need some storage, and new art.

Since I was feeling so inspired already I bought this desk, on sale, can't wait for it all to come together.
