mixed media gallery wall

I've always loved this mixed media gallery wall from Domino...

And my roommate and I have been brainstorming some ideas for our apartment. Here are a few images I'm loving together:

shop furbish

How pretty is the new opening webpage for Furbish? When we were in North Carolina for market last fall we stopped by and the store is even more amazing in person.

bedroom progress

I haven't had a chance to do anything fun in my bedroom at my new apartment yet, but when Jill's rugs went up on One King's Lane I had to get one. It's a new pattern and we've been dying to use it for a project at work. Hopefully it will be pretty with my white bedding and the lavender headboard I made before I moved in. Still on the list: a mirror, sheets, shams, throw pillows, lamp shades and art.

obsessing over...

These fab brass bowls from High Street Market, the new Souk rug from West Elm and the soft colors in this photograph by etsy artist madden photography.

A single pink rose on my coffee table makes me happy.

cocktail hour {thanksgiving}

Before I disappear for the holiday weekend I wanted to share a quick and easy cocktail for Thanksgiving. I'm definitely going to be trying these!

ginger, apple & bourbon cocktail

Fresh apple cider, ginger ale and kentucky bourbon in a 2:2:1 ratio via the tampopo post. Couldn't be any easier!

happy thanksgiving

It's a busy week working and getting ready for Thanksgiving. I'm making a couple of things including a yummy sausage apple stuffing, and doing flowers/decor for our family party. I'm loving this simple, mixed arrangement for inspiration. Happy Thanksgiving all! :)

loving lauren liess textiles

Lauren's blog, Pure Style Home, was one of the first design blogs I started reading and she's a huge inspiration. She's a young mother, owns a great design business, and has now launched a textile line and online store - I don't know how she does it all.

Two of my faves: queen anne's bouquet and filagree chevron:

Congrats Lauren!

pretty peonies

Have a happy Wednesday!

book wishlist {katie ridder rooms}

I haven't had a chance to preview it yet, but I've heard that the new Katie Ridder book rocks. For anyone looking to get me an early Christmas present.. please feel free!

look of the day

these posts should probably be titled "look of the year" considering how bad i've been on the blog but i absolutely had to post this picture because i just love everything about it. i also want to say, that i am so jealous of this girl from atlantic pacific, because she has the most unbelievable clothing. it's really not fair.

love that vintage fashion

i've really been getting into pan am this season, and one of the reasons i love the show is because of the wardrobe. it reminds me a little bit of mad men, except it's a bit more light and fun and i want every. single. piece. of christina ricci's clothing. no, really.

loving {caitlin wilson textiles}

Love Caitlin Wilson's new line of fabrics and pillows. They're colorful and fun - at a great price point too.

This navy pillow needs to be a part of my life

On a side note I'm having an awesome time at High Point Market this week. I've met a lot of awesome design bloggers and seen so many beautiful things at Hickory Chair, Oly, Robert Abbey, etc. Plus I got to hear Martyn Lawrence Bullard speak about his faaabulous new book this morning. So fun!

j.crew rain boots

I've been looking for a pair of rain boots for a while now that aren't as expensive as a pair of Hunter's, but are still stylish enough for what they are. I LOVE the pair that I ordered from j.crew (in black). The back zipper is my favorite part - it's cute and makes them much easier to get in and out of!

I've been too busy to finish decorating my new apartment (or take any pictures) but here is a peek at our living room. I especially love our gallery wall of Harper's Bazaar covers!

It's been warm in Boston lately and although I'm not complaining (I do miss summer already..) I am SO SO ready for fall and all it's fabulousness. Pumpkins, apples and cinnamon, boots and blazers - what's not to love? I am seriously contemplating maxing out my credit cards to buy all new clothes for fall and I'm loving Atlantic Pacific's belted vest, destroyed denim and buffalo check. Casey's blogged about her before - she's such an inspiration. I'll post some key pieces that I'm loving later this week.
