Not many people have a cool $16M just lying around, but if you do I have just the place for you! The man behind your favorite minimalist tighty whities created the perfect minimalist beach house in Miami and it's for sale. CK has been known to be intensely private about this particular home, but now that it's on the market the home design community is all a buzz and rightfully so. This place is absolute perfection.
I love this resurgence of the 70's we've been seeing everywhere. If I had to pick a different decade to live out my prime years, the 70's would probably be it (or 80's... tough call). The platform sandals, the wide leg / high waisted pants, the messy wavy hair, and most of all VELVET.
I've wanted an emerald green velvet couch ever since I could remember and now that velvet is making a splash on the upholstery scene, my wish may just come true. Is an emerald green velvet couch a practical investment? Definitely not. Is an emerald green velvet couch pretty much the coolest thing ever? It definitely is.

If I didn't already have a million reasons why I want to visit Australia, this 1950s Bridge House would be reason enough for me. Designed by the legendary Robin Boyd, the house got a face lift along with this article in Vogue Living.

Boyd designed two elliptical steel trusses — engineered by Bill Irwin to sit astride the old creek bed and support two longitudinal window-walls (a revolutionary system he developed with Stegbar) — to be arranged in diverging lines that both created a wedge-shaped plan and maximized internal exposure to the exterior’s established trees.- Vogue Australia
Just a little international modernism to round out the weekend.
A closet full of clothes and I pretty much wear some variation of the same thing every single day. I think at this point my co-workers imagine that I just have rows and rows of black skinny pants, neutral sweaters, and black boots in my closet and nothing else. That's basically true, but at least I'm in good company .
What a year!! 2014 is certainly one for the record books in our household. A wedding, a South African safari, a new job, and a brand new niece are just a few of this year's highlights. Additionally this silly blog celebrated its first birthday at the end of December without so much as a post from me. I promise to do better in 2015 and am so grateful for the friends and family who have been so supportive of this little endeavor.
We have our work cut out for us to try to top 2014.... but I think we can do it.
How cool is this furniture and home decor line? I discovered them on AllModern's inspiration page and I just can't get enough of this stuff ( I already purchased two of those arrow wall hangings!). Now I just have to move out to LA and decorate my imaginary bungalow in Manhattan Beach... Sunshine here I come!
Remember that time we went all the way to Morocco in the middle of summer with temps soaring over 115 Fahrenheit just to gawk and swoon over tile mosaics, Moorish architecture, lamb tagine, and leather goods? Oh wait... that was just me.... and my poor husband who I made come with me.
Man... it. was. hot.
The designers at Studio Ko must have gone on the same trip because this contemporary Moroccan inspired home is just about perfect. The only thing I would add is a bathroom covered in those beautiful Moroccan tiles.

You guys... this is me on a camel.... A CAMEL!!! That trip was so much fun.
One of my best friends is having her bachelorette party in Charleston, SC later this month. It's going to be so much fun and I've been casually searching for a fun new dress to wear for her celebration... a fun new dress until I found this on ASOS. I'm not one to think I can pull off a jumpsuit, but I love this one so much I may have to give it a try.
As a side note, how much do you love ASOS? I've only recently started shopping on the site, but shut the front door! So many fun and trendy finds at excellent price points. Impulse shoppers rejoice.
While I'm not looking forward to the impending doom of winter in Boston, I'm loving this mild start to Fall we're having. Temps are perfectly set to the high 60s / low 70s and there's enough chill in the morning to warrant a jacket. Bring on the football filled afternoons, crockpot chili, and ankle booties!
