Inspiration: The New Domino

The spring issue of Domino is AWESOME. It saved me from losing my mind on my delayed flight back from Arizona.  There are some seriously awesome spaces in it, lots of inspiration and many reasons to go pick up a copy!

The biggest reason in my book? Lauren Liess’ new home. She’s been chronicling her reno on her blog and now we get to see the final reveal. It’s SO good. SO SO SO good.


That ceiling???? DIE.


This kitchen? The island? The iron racks? Yes please. With a cherry on top.


This TV room is amazing- those shelves were made of IKEA butcher block counters. Can you say GENIUS?


This shot wasn’t in the mag but I love it. How badly do you want to sit here and read?

Red Carpet Review: Oscars 2014

The Oscars last night were funny and somewhat poignant but WAAAAAAAY too long. We don’t need a montage of “movie heroes” when this thing is running three and a half hours long! C’mon! But there was some good fashion, and actually a real drought of bad fashion! I thought most people looked lovely! Leaves me with less snark, but I still can review, right?

Tied for best dressed has to be Cate Blanchett and Lupita N’yongo (both winners) who looked so gorgeous. Cate is just a freakin’ MOVIE STAR. Look at her! That dress is perfection are the earrings, the hair and makeup. Lupita’s “Nairobi blue” Prada gown was the very best color on the carpet and the cut was magnificent on her. I didn’t love the headband, but I didn’t hate it either.


These two killed it too- Charlize looked incredible and this dress fit beyond perfect. And Sandra picked the ideal color and silhouette for her. Loved her smokey eye too.

THESE TWO. Are you serious? Can they be any hotter? Olivia does pregnancy well, y’all. This 70’s inspired look on her was just amazing, I loved it. And his dark blue tux was the best men’s look of the night, hands down! When did Jason Sudekis become such a stone cold fox?

I thought Julia Roberts looked LUMINOUS- her hair and makeup was simply awesome and I actually loved this dress on her. I’m not crazy about the peplum, but I LOVED the neckline and lace detail!  Karen O’s dress ( I had no idea who she was…) was elegant and retro and super old school Hollywood. Love.
