How gorgeous is this Australian pad! I first saw it on Table Tonic, then on one of my other faves Full House and wanted to share it with you. Aren't the wings just adorable?! I always tell my puggy that she's an angel with invisible wings ;-) maybe I should get some for her!

Camel Chic

I hope you all had an amazing Turkey Day! Today was my first day back from a week off of work, and as much as I love my job I really wish I was shopping on this "Cyber Monday". I want to swoop on some of those wide leg pants like Oliva's.

Swankiest House in Hollywood

I've talked of my love for Woodson and Rummerfield before, and It's likely I will again! I simply adore this home they designed for fashonista Suzanne Marques . I am not alone in my love as Elle Decor calls it the "Swankiest home in Hollywood". Check out the article here

I saw these bookends from one of my favorite blogs The Neo-Traditionalist. Like me she is a huge pug lover, and her blog is always filled with lovlely images. If you haven't checked it out yet you should!
Aren't these sooo cute!!!!

Bookends avialable here

Melinda's Mood Boards!

This was a super fun mood-board to work on! Melinda already has the most adorable little NY apartment, she just needed a little help pulling it together and with they layout. You have to get creative when your only working with a couple hundred square feet. I know that feeling all to well! The beach cottage is tiny! As you will see tiny can be totally chic!

And the Kitchen Nook! 

Previously owned were the sofa and X bench.

Lucite and Killer Lighting

What more could you want ?

I can't get over this to die for kitchen, Amanda Nisbet has done it again. The lighting is so spot on, mixed with the lucite bar stools... Its killer! She has the most impeccable taste, way up on a pedestal in my book.

Great Deal!

Sooo this weekend, I went to Nordstrom Rack with a girlfriend to do a little shopping. On the way there she told me about the website called Group-on. It's where you get good deals on all types of stores, restaurants etc. She told me as were going to the Rack that there's a coupon right now for $25 you get a $50 gift card!!! Amazing right! Then another friend was telling me about it so I jumped on board!

Anyway it seems like such a great deal I couldn't not share it with you! Now its NOT for the regular Nordies, just the rack so if you don't have a rack near you don't purchase it! I know it totally sounds weird but my girlfriend said she bought restaurant deals on here and it was legit... So I'm stoked! ready for some shopping!

I just did this screen grab so as you can see its ending soon. If you want to join you can use my code

While I was there they had tons of cute shoes, bags and Jbrand Jeans. It's a little piece of heaven!

Joel McHale's House

I was absolutely shocked when I saw Joel McHale's house on Matters of Style. I would have never pictured this funny man in this chic house! Isn't that the weirdest feeling, when your completely shocked by someones home. It's like when you hear someones voice on the phone, you have a total picture in your head and you see them and it's the total opposite! haha

Adorable little Family! His wife Sara worked for one of my fave's Kelly Wearstler.. You can she learned a thing or two by seeing this glam house!

And an equally adorable little boys room!!

I want to hang out here with Joel and the fam!! I bet he's a riot! 

Love the woodland wallpaper!

This room is my favorite! love the treatment on the ceiling, and chic screens.

High Contrast

I've always been drawn to the look of black and white high contrast. It's so crisp, clean, and has such a luxurious feel. I love how you can go super bold with patterns and geometric shapes, or you can stay more calming and simple. The great thing is that any pop of color you want to throw in there works!

I think black and white will always be a staple in my house!

Are you a fan or is it too plain?
