{ color palette: urban chic }

I love the pairing of subtle and plain textures with punches of
pattern and bright color. Something about it feels so urban and loft-like.
This Swedish home and daylook mixed with a time lapse of a night time
 highway in Atlanta makes me want navy, coral, and beige in my 
wardrobe and apartment. It seems so chic yet relaxed, doesn't it?


{ homemade mixture & company }

This past weekend the parents came to visit, and Mom and
I made homemade mixture ... which is basically chili, but 
simpler and in my opinion, much better. Now I'm thoroughly
enjoying the leftovers. But other than the great food, I enjoyed
good company and a few good laughs! It's pretty nice having
company in the little apartment ... especially my parental unit.


color palette: rich & serene

I am loving this soothing and rich color palette. GAP's Spring RTW 2011 campaign offers clean and cool lines that remind me of the quiet and muted tones of this amazing home office that I am in complete love with. Pair them with this quiet photo taken in British Columbia, and it makes a happy little trio of calm, quiet, and rich colors and textures. 

Anyone up for helping me redecorate my apartment?


{ Bon International }

The latest issue of Bon International offers up an example of amazing 
nomadic fashion with Andreas Sjodin’s studio portraits.  Starring 
Gertrud Hegelund and styled by Naomi Itkes, the images remix the 
spring collections from Missoni, Celine, Proenza Schouler.

This is the perfect example of why I love editorial fashion photography.
Not only is it a great portrayal of the model, the feeling of the fashion,
but it's edgy, and has great texture, depth, and visual interest. 

Sigh. OK, I'm done gushing.
Happy Saturday!
