WEEKENDS AT HOME: LIGHTING

September 5th, 2014

Sometimes it is the little things that make the biggest statement. When it comes to interior design (and fashion), I believe it is these little things, that so often get overlooked, that are the most important.  Lately, I have obsessed over lighting.  I want to find unique lighting for all the rooms in our future home, but I want to start with the kitchen.  I am loving pendants above an island, but I am having trouble deciding on a particular style and metal.  Here are a few of my current favorites that I am trying to narrow down…

I love the contrast of brass fixtures in a white and grey kitchen!

All the metal and white in this kitchen keep the look clean and modern.

I am leaning toward multiple pendants, but this single oversized globe really makes a statement.

This style might be a little too traditional paired with all my antiques and blue and white.  I think I might need a more modern or industrial fixture for a fun contrast.

I really love the modern simplicity of this chrome pair.

BACK TO BASICS

September 4th, 2014

New York Fashion Week has officially kicked off! Although I won’t be there until Saturday, I am sharing an understated look that I love for NYC. You can never go wrong with layering basics.  Plus, I always find it refreshing to see someone stick to their personal style during NYFW when it can be tempting to pile on trends that might not be you.

Knox is traveling back to NYC with me this weekend.  We are so excited to catch up with our New York family. We have a packed schedule of shows (for me), picnics in Central Park with friends, a birthday party and hitting up our favorite neighborhood spots! Be sure to follow along on Instagram!

SUMMER FAVORITES

September 2nd, 2014

Although Labor Day isn’t the official end to summer, heading into September always feels like the beginning of a new season. Perhaps this is me still holding on to a school girl mindset from the days when September meant back to school. Regardless of the reason, I decided to round-up a few of my favorite outfits from this summer before we head into fall. (But, let’s be honest. I live in Houston now so here’s to hoping for an actual fall.)  From this little recap, it looks like shorts, layered blazers, and easy dresses were my summer staples!
