I know, I know... I'm way too excited, but I have super-exciting news to share with you today (in case you hadn't already heard)!! Brides.com has acquired the online archives of Domino Magazine and will be sharing them with their readers! What does this mean?! Well, for me it means I'll have to block access to their site, because I'm liable to spend way too much time browsing all of the beautiful pictures! :)

Also, this may save my back issues of Domino from getting overused (you can see from this scan that my copies are well-loved:).

This news was all over Blog-land today, but I must thank Ashlina over at The Decorista for the head's-up!! :)

A Lovely Settee

Just came across this gorgeous Black & White Dhurrie Settee from Wisteria and I'm in love...

...I always like the crisp look of black & white because I'm always changing favorite colors & have a hard time settling on just one! B&W works with anything, so this would have excellent staying power for me. :)

I picture myself curled up, reading a favorite classic novel and (carefully) sipping an iced coffee in that room pictured above... how perfect!



Tulle & Tiptoes...

Browsing the through the new Vogue, I've found myself in love with some of the most ornate, gorgeous frocks. Of course the Costume Institute's Ball never fails to awe with so many amazing gowns - be they short or long, ruffled or simply chic, this year's fete had some very lovely examples of evening fashion. First off, the always impeccable Doutzen Kroes, in a blue Zac Posen confection:

And then there's the pretty little feathery dress from Marchesa that the designer, Georgina Chapman, wore so well with her half-updo (with a tiny bun in back - I'll be trying that hairstyle out soon!!:)...

...also, (not from Vogue, but equally inspiring) this J.Crew Weddings ad that appears in the newest Matha Stewart Weddings:

I just love the model's casual pose with all of those layers of tulle surrounding her! So pretty.

So, while we work away in our offices and homes, may we daydream of special occasions and dancing away on little clouds of tulle & feathers. :)

Happy Monday, Lovelies!!




I know I've mentioned my love for peonies before, but as I was editing some gorgeous (if I may say so:) engagement pictures, I came across this shot I took at the Fremont Market...

...and it made me want to run out and get a bouquet for our kitchen. Their lush blooms & beautiful shades of pink are so elegant and glamorous. :)

I'm busy working on lots of pictures for Sea Studio, but I promise I'll be back with lots of fun fashion- and design-y posts very soon!!



Father's Day - Part II! (Molasses Cookie Recipe!)

Here's a fun idea for Father's Day - why not whip up a batch of Dad's favorite cookies?! You can find a cute tin with his favorite sports team on it to put them in or just wrap 'em up in some pretty paper and give him a cool mug and some coffee beans... either way, any dad would appreciate some home-baked goodness!

I baked my Aunt Terrie's Molasses Sugar Cookies today, and just to make the idea extra tempting, I thought I'd share the recipe and a few pictures. :)

Here's the recipe... straight out of the cookbook because I'm too lazy to type it out! :)

I was impatient & didn't chill the dough for very long, but I definitely recommend giving it at least an hour!

Bonus points if you have a toddler on-hand to do some taste-testing!!

Happy Baking!!



Father's Day Ideas - Part I!

With Father's Day fast approaching, I thought it'd be fun to share a couple of ideas for unique and usable gifts!

First off: An affordable & ever-so-practical idea for the beer-loving dad...
...this bottle opener would be perfect in the garage or out by the barbeque & at only $10, you could even get a six-pack to go with it! :)

If Dad has fancier tastes, a fine scotch and some classic tumblers would make a luxurious gift...
I know of more than a few Oban fans, and these Picardie tumblers from Design Within Reach are on my own personal wish list...

Happy Shopping!! I'll be back with more ideas soon!



Obsessed With Madewell...

... and their new website! Of course, any friend of J. Crew is a friend of mine (the two are "sister" companies) - and since we've been waiting impatiently for our local Madewell store to open, it's super exciting that we can now shop online in the meantime!! :)

I love the whole casual-chic vibe they have going on & I thought I'd share a few of my (totally random!) favorites from a first run-through of the site...

Love the asymmetrical top above (especially in navy!) and these jeans look perfectly weathered...I think the only reason not to get these sweet shoes is that I'll want to wear them every day. :) I just love how French & nautical they look...This little whisper of a dress would be super versatile (in warm climates! ;) & I love the color...
...and this pretty floral one could go from flea market to brunch to cocktails on a sunny patio - totally effortless chic!!

Happy Monday!!!



Oh, Hello! New Lonny Magazine!!

So, I can't let the new Lonny Magazine June/July issue launch and not share a few of my favorite pages!! Loving some of these rooms...

I've been dying to get a chair like this for our living room... This is pretty close to my dream kitchen: White subway tiles to the ceiling, lots of windows, gorgeous black cupboards & the luscious, dark hardwood floors... LOVE!!

Ah, inspiration... if you haven't been reading Lonny, I definitely recommend it! :)

Vintage Books: Daddy-Long-Legs!!

When my Aunt Mary surprised us with a beautiful vintage copy of Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster (published in 1912!!) I was super excited since vintage books are all the rage and I knew it'd look great on my bookshelf... turns out, it's also a really sweet, entertaining story!

Such a great gift idea for any girl in your life...

Happy reading!! :)


Pink Garden Party - Wedding Inspiration Shoot!!

Hello & Happy Monday!!

As you may know, I am only a part-time blogger - but I'm a full-time photographer & I'm so excited to have a little project by Sea Studio featured on 100 Layer Cake today!

Here are a couple of the pics...

I had a blast styling this shoot...

Head over to my photo blog to see the rest & get all the details on decor, flowers & fashion!! :) Oh, and check out the post on 100 Layer Cake, too - love their blog!



Serena & Lily!

I've been loving this site for awhile now, but today I went on to check out rugs & realized that I like pretty much everything they carry!! It's somewhere between preppy, modern, pretty and casual & I just keep finding more to love the longer I look. :)

This rug would be perfect for our entryway - but in blue or gray?!!

I'm leaning towards the blue because it would be the perfect tie-in to the other blue shades we have throughout our house - and that our entry is totally lacking!

Our bedroom is very close to this color... and I love the styling in this shot:

These next few pieces have nothing to do with one another except that I love them all!! The "Birds Nest Hanging Lamp" is so cool & I'd love to get the little white table to set a couple of plants on by our window... the Venetian glass mirror would be the perfect replacement for the generic oval one that currently resides in our powder room - and the green pillow is just fresh and cheery.

Enjoy browsing their online shop if you haven't already!!

Happy Decorating!
