Today’s the big day! It’s pretty much a guarantee that I’ll spend the day counting down the hours until tonight’s big One Kings Lane sale (6:00PM PST/9:00PM EST!) so to pass the time I thought I’d share this photo of our apartment I took for the event. The OKL team asked for a photo that represented our taste so I styled up this little corner that happens to feature a few of my favorite things.
Truth be told, I feel wayy out of my league to be included in a group of such talented people with serious design creds (umm have you seen Mark D. Sikes’ House Beautiful cover or Bailey’s homes in Matchbook and Rue?!) but I’m just going to go with it and be flattered–I’ll probably be shopping the other bloggers’ items right along with you!
As always, thanks a million for your supportive comments, tweets, and emails. With your feedback on the re-design and the sale I’m feeling pretty grateful these days!
P.S That black and white print of the Piazza Navona at the top right is up for grabs tonight!

Apologies for the late edition of Sunday Style but I have a good excuse… apparently my laptop wanted to partake in some St. Patrick’s Day festivities and guzzled up a good amount of the beer I might have accidentally spilled near it. The good news is that my hard drive survived. The bad news is that I had to buy a new Macbook Pro. Nevertheless, we’re back in business!
This week I was really really excited about Oscar de la Renta’s new tabletop collection with Miles Redd. I’m a huge admirer of Oscar de la Renta and Miles Redd just so happens to be one of my design idols so to me, this duo can do no wrong.
One of my favorite labels, Joie, is having an amazing friends and family sale. Use code JOIEFRIENDS through March 18th for 20% off! I’m taking the opportunity to stock up for spring. In addition to the Purine top (above) I’ve been obsessed with, these shorts, this top, and these sandals are currently in my cart.
Speaking of awesome collaborations, one of my favorite illustrators, Caitlin McGauley, is having a pop-up shop at one of my favorite shops, Furbish Studio. Apparently the stars have aligned this month with all of these dream partnerships!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
AHH I am SO excited to finally share this exciting piece of news with you! This Monday, March 18 at 6:00 PM PST/8:00 PM EST I’m partnering up with One Kings Lane and six other amazing bloggers in a Design Blogger Tastemaker Tagsale!!
It has been killing me not to share this with you over the past few months, but now that I can let the cat out of the bag I might not be able to stop talking about it! If you’re unfamiliar with One King’s Lane, it’s a flash sale site offering the best in home decor and one of kind vintage items. Sign up here if you’re not already a member because you won’t want to miss this!
I’ve scoured my favorite haunts up and down the East Coast to bring you a curated selection of vintage items that will honestly be hard for me to part with! I’m also letting go of a few pieces from my own collection that I hope will go on to loving new homes.
Keep an eye on Instagram for some sneak peeks leading up to the sale and pick your favorites early. I can’t wait to see what the other bloggers have up their sleeves. I might be shopping myself! In the mean time, visit their fabulous blogs: Mark D. Sikes, Peppermint Bliss, Because It’s Awesome, A Bloomsbury Life, House of Brinson, Happy Mundane.
The countdown is on!!
Tory Burch Reva Scarf | Furbish Maira Kalman Quote | Mimosa Lane Pouch | Home & Tribe Pom Pom Pillows | Tory Burch Pom Pom and Resin Necklace
Pom poms are back! Ever since spotting this Maira Kalman quote among the new arrivals at Furbish I’ve been noticing pom poms everywhere. Definitely not a complaint because I happen to think they’re pretty great in their own playful way.
I’d love to see these pillows in a children’s room and think this necklace is gorgeous if you’re willing to go bold. If you prefer your poms a little more subtle visit Albertina’s etsy shop for adorable pom pom pouches or check out this Serena & Lilly throw.
Love them or hate them, you have to admit everything looks a little more festive when pom poms are involved!
Lately the weather in DC has been suffering from multiple personality disorder. We went from gearing up for an epic snow storm (turned out to be an epic fail) to enjoying clear blue skies and 60 degree temperatures in the course of a week! Always being one to take advantage of warm weather, my white jeans were on and my nails painted a fresh minty shade before the thermometer even hit 50. Whoops, too soon?
Brody, our golden retriever, was also pretty happy with the situation because it meant taking a much longer walk around the neighborhood than usual. Plenty of time to to do some real estate stalking and take a few pics of my new Isabella Item Tote from Tuckernuck.
I was super excited to partner with Tuckernuck because 1. they’re based in DC (shop local!) and 2. their fresh take on classic American style completely complements my own aesthetic. Here’s the true testament though, I’ve shopped with them before! This monogrammed Sunday Bag was in heavy rotation before the Isabella came into my life. Both are roomy, have zippered interior pockets–a must have in a tote– and are sophisticated in their simplicity. Somehow they make lugging various fabric, wallpaper, tile, and finish samples around look a little more chic!
Next up on my wish list: this ASHA zodiac ring I’ve been coveting for almost a year, this amazing Egyptian revival hieroglyphics bracelet, and this bikini from one of my favorite fabric designers, Manuel Canovas. Happy shopping!
