There’s the decorating we can afford to do, and the decorating we would love to do. This is my list currently of objects I’m lusting after that are only mildly out of reach at this point in time (as opposed to the very long list of objects I could never not ever afford):
Cb2 Lubi Daybed in Olive
Red Array Shelf from CB2 (or other Sapien shelves, but I like the red)
White Parsons Desk from West Elm
Sweater Rug from West Elm
Blue Wishbone Chairs at Suite NY– Insert choir of angels singing here
Bird Chair by Sam Moore
This painting, Moss Aqua, by Maura Robinson (via Style Court)
Although this last one is getting closer to ‘dreamland’ instead of ‘more realistic lust’, but hey, it’s been a long week already, so I’m cutting myself some slack. And now I’m off to fix a cup of tea and find a book.
This photo immediately caught my eye because I’ve been thinking a lot about art in the kitchen, and how to give mine a facelift so that the room has more pop. Design*Sponge, as always, is such a wonderful inspiration.

Someday when I have children, I will put some of their artwork in frames and hang it on my walls. One of my friend’s moms did this- each one of her four children had something framed, and all the paintings hung together in the family room, and I thought it was brilliant. Now I always think of her when I see pictures like this on blogs.
I have been rather quiet the past few weeks because 1) I have a new job and still have not recovered sleep and energy-wise and 2) I have also been sick. So I especially need these bits of happiness this week.
Steven Colbert predicting all of the Oscar winners: The DaColbert Code – Oscar Predictions. For some reason, I can’t embed the video, but it’s totally worth the click.
This photograph and its quote.
This post, as I have an established love of concert posters.
This video, which has been linked by several people I read, and is lovely in all of its simplicity and attention to detail.
Classic books with beautiful designs. I need to find some of these.
Have a lovely weekend!
Sometimes the best frames are those that are not fancy at all, but supplement just by being. Additionally, this made me decide I should paint the frame around my chalkboard. Also, do check out the blog it came from, Le Love. Photos from it nearly always make my tumblr.
