Warm it up...with books.

I love the way books add warmth to a room. I think they are an essential layer to any style. You don't have to have a lot, just a few stacks here and there make the room feel more cozy.

Layered for Comfort

This month's House and Home is all about decorating for small spaces, and they're changing all the rules (finally). They are saying to use big statement pieces, go for bold color, add layers and show off collections (exactly!). As much as I like to look at those high-end designer homes, I love my stuff. I want to be surrounded by what is inspiring and comfortable to me (vintage cameras, white ironstone, drawings of my dogs, beautiful books).

I like how well the room is layered - vintage film equipment, gallery-style walls, stacks of books, soft furnishings mixed with hard, interesting lamps. Just remember to keep it tidy and cohesive or it could end up cluttered.

Turning a House into a Home

I've seen other examples of old churches turned into homes, but this one in Northumberland (England?) takes the cake! They left all the original stained glass, and the archways are gorgeous. Though, I don't think I would like having all those tombstones in my backyard....

Am I the only one?

Every time I get a new Anthropologie catalog in the mail, I get so inspired. I love the clothes, the interiors, the's almost too much for a girl to handle.

It seems there must be others, like here.

Taxidermy Chic

I am VERY used to seeing this type of thing in a "Man's Cave" or dark den, so I was pretty surprised to see this antelope(?) in such a chic, bright, streamlined space.

I Wanna Be a Hilfiger

Got a new Lucky in the mail yesterday (which I actually wanted to read because Jessica Simpson's covershot looks so good), and just a few pages in, I see the Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2010 ad campaign. I'm in LOVE with these images - fall at it's finest.

Hello, Handsome!

I returned from my shopping trip this morning, and look who I found in my inbox - the Anthropologie Battersea Sofette. I think he's just dreamy!

See You Soon

I'm taking a blogging break this week and heading north with my mom to do some shopping (yay!). If I see anything worth sharing, I'll post it on the facebook page. But no worries, I'll be back Friday with some art on the wall.
