Provence in Austin.

I’ve never been to Austin, TX and I’m thinking that I need to go!  My husband has been there many times on business and I think the next time he heads that way he may find his wife sneaking in his suitcase.  One of the many reasons for this would be the incredibly designed restaurants I’ve been noticing in the southern city.  I’m all about delicious food, but it’s best when served amongst a visual feast as well as a literal one. Case in point, LaV. I FREAKING DIE, Y’ALL. DIE. This place is heaven! Designed by McAlpine, Booth & Ferrier (whose portfolio makes me sweat it’s so good) the space is like a modern farmhouse in Provence. I love it.

Visual Delight: Paris in Four Months

You guys have GOT to check out Paris in Four Months-I have not been this charmed by a blog in so long. Thanks to Sarah, I spent hours this weekend pouring over the imagery created by Carin Olsson, a woman who is as in love with Paris as I am. Okay, maybe more considering she moved there on a whim alone to discover what it was like to live in the magical city. Who hasn’t dreamt of that? What incredible pictures she shoots- of the city itself, nature, fashion, beauty….everything. I am certain you will be as delighted as I am.







I Want To Go To There: The Dean Hotel

I have grown up incredibly close to Providence, RI but to be honest, I think I’ve visited only enough times to count on one hand.  For some reason, when I was growing up Providence had a”Boston’s forgotten step-child” kind of vibe (unless you got into Brown, which I did not), but lately I’ve been seeing SO MUCH awesome press about amazing things blooming in the small city.  I am going to absolutely have to make a pilgrimage this summer!  One place I would love to see (and stay at) would be The Dean Hotel design by ASH NYC. It’s an incredible, modern take of New England Traditionalism. Take a peek! There’s SO MUCH good stuff here to be inspired by for your own home:

The bathrooms are REALLY good.


There’s so much more to see…

I Want to Go To There: Paris Perfection

I must be on a hell of a traditional/modern kick right now because I feel so drawn to spaces that incorporate both well. And nowhere do they do that better than is Paris.  I somehow missed this spread on the hotel Marquis Faubourg St. Honore in Domino and just added it to my “I Must Go There” list.  I adore the looks of this charming place- plus they have Hermes toiletries and offer turn-down macrons? Let’s leave now, mmmmkay?

The Perfect Getaway.

Following up on yesterday’s post, I have been perusing the internet for escapes. Some a re a reality, some not. This falls more in the not category, but HOLY HELL this is exactly what the perfect “get away from it all and unplug” place looks like in my dreams.  Meet The Hope House Mousehole (yes, the area is called Mousehole! MOUSEHOLE! Can it GET ANY QUAINTER???)  There is a house and a separate loft for rent in this sleepy seaside village in Cornwall, England.  Can I pack a ton of books, cable knit sweaters and tea and go NOW?


The House: The stuff my monochromatic dreams are made of.
