I'm happy I can sneak this Friday post in, I figured better late than never. I am hanging in with my kid's tonight - I am very happy about this. I am in need of a low key weekend. I plan to organize, cook yummy food and chill! It's my last free weekend before the Spring sports begin in our home. Have a lovely weekend. I'm going to pour my first beer of the week, I hope it helps this damn cold I caught! Cheers! 

1. Not every season is easy, but I truly believe the tough times are necessary and clear the way for something stronger and better! I am listening to the "You are a BadAss" audiobook by Jen Sincero. I'm liking it!!
2. I posted this image on insta. It's been an inspirational photograph for a gorgeous bathroom design I am creating. 
3. My daughter is picky as hell about food. It seems to be getting worse. I have been putting together child friendly charcuterie boards for her. She seems to think it's fun and I can sneak in fruits and veggies. At this point, I want her to eat and I am finished make two meals every night.
4. This bag is a nice size and the perfect way to add a bit of color to your life this Spring. 
5. Elephants! I've always loved them.  I recently purchased a sweet and very comfy oversized sweatshirt from Ivory Ella. Mine is more muted than this one. 10% of the proceeds goes towards saving the elephants. xx

A rustic retreat - Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick's farmhouse getaway.

I notice details, I aways have. I gravitate towards creative endeavors, whether it be fashion design, graphics, music, architecture, cooking or interior design. I also can appreciate a wide variety of styles and genres. I rarely lock myself into any one style, but I do love quality and classic bones that have been proven to work again and again. Today, I'm sharing Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick's incredible farmhouse. It's tucked away in North Carolina. It is both rustic and refined. It is new but looks and feels old. I'm currently working on a huge renovation, most of the details will be new but we are honoring the historic integrity of the home. There will be worn brass, dark cabinets and hand picked soapstone. I can't wait to share the details with you all.

Brooklyn certainly did not miss a design detail, did she? All images via: Architectural Digest.

A classic beauty - Lee Radziwill

Hello! I'm thrilled to have thirty spare minutes to post today. My daughter and I even squeezed in time to bake a cake! I'm actually pretty impressed with her frosting skillzzzz. 

I have a few timeless fashion icons, one of which is Lee Radziwill. She was incredibly chic but her looks also had a bit of an edge. Here's a peek at her style and her Parisian apartment. I've also shared a selection of classic pieces that Lee would surely approve of.  I say: purchase simple, nicely fitted staples and layer on jackets and fabulous accessories for a signature look, that is all your own.

ShopBop Sale - My Picks

ShopBop's seasonal sale is going on today through March 2nd! It is the perfect excuse to refresh your closet with items that will take you right into the Spring! Going forward, I am only purchasing items I LOVE and for every item I bring into my home, one is given away. I think we are all ready for some warm weather. Today is a "school snow day".  (insert eye roll) Here are some of my favorites picks - I've included plenty of color!

Relaxed neutrals - get away home

I escaped to Vermont for a couple days of R + R and some amazing skiing with my children this week! I often return from Vermont craving a relaxed lifestyle. The laid back vibe and gorgeous scenery remind me that sometimes simpler is a better choice. I came across a turn key home designed by husband and wife design duo Melanie Turner and Stan Benecki. It's a beach side retreat but the design (minus the shells and any beachy decor) would translate beautifully to a mountain get away.

Happy Sunday! I did not have time to squeeze in this post on Friday but I did today!! Here's a peek at what's on my design radar. 

1. A simple sentiment but so very true! Fear holds us back more than we realize. If you learn from your mistakes then it's a lesson not a regret! None of us can undo the past, we can only try to be the best version of ourselves today.
2. Sadly, Lee Radziwill passed away on Friday. She was a radiant woman and a fierce fashion icon. I may have to designate an entire post to her this week.
3. Wallpaper on doors!
4. I swear by Glossier Boy Brow, it plumps and straightens my light brows right up! I swear they are thinning as I get older. 
5. I may need a pink hose! (the little moments make me happy)
6. This chocolate vest looks pretty amazing with these white jeans. If real fur isn't your thing, there are knock offs available.

By the Sea

I appreciate homes that are unpredictable. Designer Barrie Benson could have chosen a typical "sea" inspired design for this gorgeous ocean side home but she created a home infused with unique colors combos and off beat furniture styles. It's refreshing and but still blends beautifully with the gorgeous surroundings.
