Posting my loves for the week means it's Friday and I am winding down. I typically feel very productive on Fridays..Here's what I've been eyeing lately. Happy Weekend. xx

1. This beautiful camel Arne Norell chair - The Ari - Sweden, 1966.
2. John Lubbock.
3. The Paper Kites - I often work to this Australian band, their sound is moody and melodic.
4. Lizzie Fortunato jewels.
5. I often purchase shoes from European brands, I love the quality and fit. These versatile boots are on my winter wish list.  
6. Fluting details, especially when incorporated into furniture and kitchen designs. 
7. French designer, Jean Royere's elegant lighting designs from the 30's and 40's.

This color coordinated post was NOT intentional, ha! I grabbed my favorite snaps from the week and voila, very fall inspired. I am more of a perfectly imperfect person, anyway...Here's what I rounded up this week. Happy October.

1. The "charred" house trend, I'm liking it.  

2. Camel wrap coats and any sweater, coat, blazer with a belt wrapped around the waist. 

3. Tortoise cutlery...

4. YES! I always loved, Henry Miller.

5. Cashmere bralettes + fashion week street style. I have one on the way.... (Milan fashion week)

6. Fall and autumn decor that is not contrived...

Style Edit - My Fall selections


September was very good to us in Boston. The weather is predicted to cool down in the next week or so. I'm trying to be deliberate about my purchases and honor mindful consumption. The goal is not to over buy but to continue to build a classic, updated wardrobe with an edge and good quality selections...Here are my choices for the Fall. I'm also loving sweater dresses and oversized shirt coats (as long as they are not itchy!!). xx

Nate and Jeremiah at home

 I mean who doesn't love this dynamic duo, they have wonderful style are fun to watch and their design sense is perfection. They have sold their home in L.A. and have relocated back to N.Y. Here's a peek at their newly renovated home in Montauk. Images via: Elle Decor. Photos: Richard Foulser

I'm REALLY trying to carve out time to blog more often. I'm actually going to have the entire page revamped and that will entail moving the site, so stay tuned for more information on that development. I typically share what's creatively on my mind closer to the end of the week but it's coming to you today (because I had time). Hope you're enjoying this lovely September, it's so nice to see the award shows and Galas back in full swing. The Met Gala red carpet did not disappoint last night. Eek. 

1. There were a number of looks that I loved last night. I'm sharing my favorite. Kaia Gerber looked stunning and wore a classic ball gown, the best part? Her gown was a gorgeous reference to Bianca Jagger's Dior version, worn to the Met Gala in 1981. GAH. 

2.  Kitchens without walls of traditional cabinetry and upper cabinets. I also am loving square islands and am in the process of helping design an amazing kitchen. My wonderful client has style for days... 
3. Straw flowers. I picked a bunch over the weekend and they are making me very happy this week. 
4. Let go and enjoy the crazy journey. (I am working on this)
6. Plaster lighting, this is a Julie Neill creation
7. J. Crew  has a new head of women's design at the helm. Their site and pieces have been looking good lately. They also reworked their entire cashmere collection. It's lovely and so buttery soft. I picked up two new sweaters last week. I'll share them on Insta later today. This versatile zipper neck is next on my wish list. My goal is to make intentional purchases this Fall - less stuff but better quality. 
8. Mules! I rarely wear heels to project site meetings. I'm either removing my shoes on site or dodging electrical cords.

Style edit - Fall boots

I'm not quite ready for the summer weather to end but I do love an excuse to wear a pair of beautiful boots. I may even throw some on with shorts this upcoming weekend. September has been gorgeous so far! Today, I've rounded up some of my favorites for the the Fall season....xx

Here you go, hotties. My faves at the moment. Sending healthy vibes and warm weekend wishes to you all. xx 

1. I saw Rufus du Sol by some miracle, in the fifth row, at Red Rocks last week. It was their kick off night for the tour!! We had an insanely good time. I love their latest release. 

2. Natural, unfussy hair. You will never see me with perfectly curled/sprayed hair, ever. 

3. Carolyn Murphy and cozy cashmere sweaters, preferably in white or black. Here's a good one

4. Agreed.

5. I have wanted to build a house for as long as I can remember. I am setting my sights on this goal. I want a clean, warm, inviting space with zero clutter. This bathroom fits the ideal.

6. I prefer warm weather to cold weather but I do love myself a good bootie. ;)

7. I'm finishing up a lounge room in my home and may pull the trigger on a vintage Richard Hersberger chair in a camel leather. 

8. Cutting gardens!

I've been wearing this flattering sweater a lot this summer. See photos on my Instagram account.

There is something very peaceful about Sunday mornings. I cherish the quiet time at home and usually listen to music, read, clean or cook a healthy breakfast. Today, I was able to spend a few minutes to reflect on the past week and what I've been eyeing or thinking of......xx

1. LSD's lovely Southhampton's home is the perfect blend of vintage and new...It's inviting and cozy. Image via: Vogue. I have an affinity for vintage artwork. 
2.  The Nordstrom Anni sale is going on. I'll pull together and share my picks tomorrow. These sunnies may end up in my card though. 
3. Sezane is exhibiting and selling some wonderful art,,,,I may need this print in my life. The frame was the perfect choice.
4. Travertine furniture. I'm making some change around here. My sofa is currently being recovered and I may need this table to join my living room mix.
5. My August spotify playlist. See below or follow me on Spotify. I share a new "mixed" tape monthly. I have about five concerts this month, I've selected songs from most of them. 
6. Pippa Holt kaftans support women, and an art form. See and read more about Pippa's mission here
7. Amen.
8. I'll be doing some traveling this month and would like to get a new suitcase. I've been eyeing this line, they are made from recycled plastic!
