Somestimes all you need is a little black and white

I'm excited that it's September. It marks the beginning of my favorite part of the year- the fall! I immediately start thinking of more neutral tones for the fall and winter.  I'm currently craving the classic black and white combination. I could never grow tired it. But mostly, I'm just in love with all these beautiful items I'm writing about today...I mean...the black and gold stool? And did I mention the price is pretty fabulous as well? Of course, because its from Nate Berkus for Target. I will leave you to it....

Just some pretty neutral tones to start getting you  into the fall mode. Although you would never know that fall was around the corner with these triple digit temperatures.  Let's start with the amazing Tom Dixon table.  


Five Tips for the Most Practical Big Kid Desk

I'm thrilled that school is back in session. I love summers and its relaxed daily living, but I am a creature of habit and returning to a routine does wonders for my productivity.  Little Miss A started school yesterday and it was very exciting to start a new school year. This is not just any new school year but a very special school year as she starts first grade. First grade, in our case, translates to: new building, new classes (like Chinese!), lunches at the cafeteria (no more lunchboxes, thank you!), timed tests and most importantly... HOMEWORK.  We take schoolwork very seriously around here and so I wanted to organize a cute and comfortable big girl desk for Little Miss A so that she would love sitting in it. It has to be comfortable enough so she can stay focused, and functional enough so that the set-up could work for many years to come.  Here are my five tips to create the most practical "big kid desk"


The Brushstroke Lamp by Jana Bek

These brushstroke lamps have been on my radar for a while.  You all know I love lighting - pendants, sconces, chandeliers, vintage, contemporary, no matter....I simply have a weakness.  These brushstroke table lamps are no exception. I love the happy movement they provide wherever they are placed.  Jana Bek, a fabulous interior designer, is the creator of these fabulous lamps which are handmade right ehre in the United States. In a world where most things are made in China it is nice to invest locally and especially in something so beautiful.  You can get them in an array of colors (navy, fuchsia, Wedgewood blue and deep eggplant) or even get a custom color just for you.  With these pretties you can easily dress-up a table and add some character. Following are different vignettes that show them in action-


Swan (Hollywood Regency Inspired) Birthday Party

Little Miss A's Swan birthday party was a big success.  She and her sweet friends had a wonderful time and I had so much fun putting everything together.  Originally, I had wanted to set the little table for the girls outside but the Dallas temperatures were prohibitive, so I had to set up camp inside in our kitchen....not as pretty but definitely cooler.  If you have been reading you know the original theme was inspired by the Hollywood Regency look, but in order to get my little girl on board and excited about the theme I translated it to a SWAN party-  after all, it was all about the huge swan floatie.
