Good MORNING Peanuts!! Happy Weekend! Is there ANYTHING better than waking up and feeling like, “oh S&$%, I slept in” and then miraculously remembering that it’s Saturday? I think not. Kar Bear and I had a satellite marination fest last night where we both delighted in going into hermit mode – her with Dateline + Sex and the City, and me with Hulu + Double Stuff Golden Oreos.
It was a small slice of heaven. So many of my friends I’ve talked to are feeling the same thing – we’ve all been so busy and going so hard all summer, it’s nice to finally slow down a little bit. So while you’re lingering over your morning coffee with your pretty morning hair and probably amazing morning breath, wanna mull over a little inspo with me?? K? K.
WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF.
I always tell people that your powder room is the one place in your house where you can really go bananas and do something incredibly bold that you may not have the guts to do anywhere else in the house… think of it as a little jewel box (!) These people obviously did. Also, Eskayel slays me.
TRADITIONAL MEETS MODERN… (AND BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE)
Like this one in the Marleton Hotel. I can never preach enough about the magic that happens when you juxtapose some very traditional elements (e.g. that headboard) with uber modern/Midcentury modern ones (e.g. that Serge Mouille light fixture).
And 20 second timeout… you can get that look easy peasy:
1 – 3-Arm Ceiling Lamp, Retro Furnish, $398 (compared to $3k-$10k for the Real McCoy)
3 – Wamsutta 750 Thread Count Dream Zone Sheets in White, Bed Bath & Beyond, $159.99 (ps, I’ve had these for YEARS and they are like buttah)
WHO IN THE SAM HILL MADE THESE GLORIOUS LIGHTS??
Not sure, but I think I wizzed myself when I saw them this week over on sfgirlbybay. Hey Listen – I love a good Hicks Pendant in a white kitchen like the rest of the Pinterestphere (9 trillion times over), but I have (wet) dreams about hanging something really unique over my kitchen island someday. Comme ça.
SPEAKING OF KITCHENS..
Did y’all see this one by House of Jade Interiors on Domino this week??? It’s black & white & rad all over. In fact, the whole house is to die for.
These French Plaster Lamps are Jacques Grange for Yves Saint Laurent via 1st Dibs. Only $7k for the pair… but remember this Cinderella Story about my lotus lamps? Stranger things have happened. I love how playful and unique these are.
LOOK AT THAT HEADBOARD.
I did a triple take when I saw the Chloe Bed from Cisco Home.
…and with a luscious bed of all white linens as a supporting cast? #nomnomnomnom
All the yapping about lighting today wasn’t intentional…. But this is ethereal… and feels a little modern and a little old fashioned (if you look closely at the glass discs) at the same time.
DOESN’T EVERY GIRL NEED A PINK VELVET SOFA?
I think yes.
…Artwork is the toughest thing to choose for someone else because it’s totally subjective, but I love this piece by Jane Winfield.
LOVE, LOVE LOVE.
I’ve seen some pedestal tables I’ve loved, but never one like this with a base like that.
OF COURSE IT’S FROM JAYSON HOME & GARDEN.

THE PRETTIEST FABRIC I’VE SEEN IN AWHILE.
How can you not be happy when you look at Robert Crowder’s “Versailles”(??) which is also amazing in the green colorway. I don’t usually gravitate toward yellow anything for interiors, but I want to use this EVERYWHERE. Also – do you guys follow Krista Nye Schwartz from Cloth & Kind on Pinterest? You should. So many of my fabric finds are discovered there.
Zoe Bios Creative is a line Kristin and I both died over at Vegas Market earlier this year – and this artist in particular… Selby Pena always has the most joyful photographs of kids frolicking and playing without one single care in the world.
It reminds me of – well, a simpler time when I was one of those kids playing outside all day – but also of the image of my friend Mia’s little boy running through a field (he’s the sweet mystery kiddo on our header, and also framed on my wall).
