The Prettiest Thing I Ever Did See.

So listen.  IIIIIIIIII’ve lived with boys – I can do gender neutral decor.  But sometimes, isn’t it nice to throw caution (and testosterone) to the wind and do something that’s SUPER chic and feminine?  I literally let out a giant gasp when I saw Allison Shearmur’s bathroom on a few days ago.  When I look at that bathroom, I feel like I’m swimming in a sea of frothy, whipped mascarpone, and that it’s raining peach sugarplums & gumdrops.  It is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G…  the wallcovering, the exposed brass plumbing…  that light fixture??  I die.

Do we love it, or do we love it??
