THE DECORATION OF HOUSES

Having just spent my very small fortune framing about 10 pieces for our home, this T Magazine video by Rita Konig made me feel a bit better about it. There is so much truth to her advice. I believe art is always worth it.

Though it is only Thursday, this will be my end of week blog post. I am hopping a plane to New Orleans in about 3 hours and am going to try to truly check out (sans instagram.)

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! I am going to try to have one of my own! Best to all!

A PLACE IN THE SUN

About two weeks ago a little bird told me that there is a possibility of a family trip in my future. The best part, was that it will be somewhere warm. Eager in anticipation for the big revel, I pulled some pieces to suit the expression.

LAST WEEK

Each one of these bubbles contains content I meant to post this past Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. With a trip to New Orleans on the books for that Thursday, I had laid most everything out and was planning to put it all on autopilot (I am a terribly unprofessional blogger so the thought of having three days ready to go is pretty awesome in my world.)

Needless to say, none of the posts got off the ground. And If anybody else had east coast travel plans that included some air time you probably know why.  After dealing with cancellations and re-bookings for 2 days we finally had to push the trip back to this coming Thursday. With the trip pushed back a week we were able to enjoy a few silver linings with flight rescheduling: book drinks with another friend, secure a restaurant that was having a private party, and take a little more time to plan some antique shop stops. Though I say this with fingers crossed, I really cannot wait for Thursday. Our reason for making the trip is actually two fold.  To spend a fun long weekend, but also to take a second look at Tulane as a possibility for Nelson’s 3-years residency program. With match day coming up this March, we are getting really excited to submit a rank list. My mind keeps racing at the thought of 3 years in Nola after 4 years in Charleston? As far as southern cities go, you can’t really beat it. But before I start counting my chickens… lets recap

 LAST WEEK

CHARLIE FERRER HAS THE SHORTEST COMMUTE IN MANHATTAN 

He merged his showroom with his one-bedroom studio apartment

SARAH LEDERMAN PROVIDES SOURCE FOR LONG TIME ART MYSTERY

Thank you Mrs. Sarah! So I have seen Christian Brechneff‘s work a few time on Pinterest and could never seem to find the source. If the sketchy botanicals weren’t enough, he had to frame them in the prettiest shade of blue. swoon.

COURTNEY TROP MAKES A CASE FOR ROCKER CHIC

Though her style is far edgier than mine, she makes me want to mix mine up a little. Love the peach fur.

TINK + TIGER LOOKBOOK DOUBLES AS A DAY DREAM MANUAL

This line of sleepwear is perfection. The piping, the stripes, the touch… followed by the lookbook. Charleston may be the only city where pajamas somehow make sense on her streets. My favorite is the amelia shirtdress.

J.CREW MADE ME A CAT PERSON (FOR A DAY)

No offense to the felines but I am all for the dog. Though that didn’t stop me from snagging this cat print top from J.Crew. love.

LOEFFLER RANDALL TUGS AT HEARTSTRINGS

Every season. Every time. She wins. And Spring 2014 is no exception. The Hopie Stacked heel is my favorite.

RONAN & ERWAN BOUROULLEC LEGITIMIZE MY COFFEE TABLE

or it will. Its on the way to me now! Their body of work really is a little beyond.

BETSY EBY LIGHTS PAINT AND CANVAS ON FIRE

I won’t spoil the surprise but read about her process. It is so masterful. Her work gets added to my “someday” file.
