Insanely gorgeous porcelain bowls by Isabelle Bramson. Definitely going on my Christmas list. It’s not too early to talk about Christmas, is it?
Things have been crazy busy at work this week. Sorry I haven’t been super up-to-speed on blogging and commenting. I miss you guys!
For now, I leave you with some gorgeous fall images from the endlessly inspiring Tumblr blog, It’s Mary Ruffle.
After moving all weekend, I’m sure it’s no surprise that I’ve got design on the mind. I’m loving these Flor Carpet Tiles. I’ll add them to my wish list!
Someday, when I grow up and have a house of my own (and a lot more money), I’m going to hire Portland-based interior designer Jessica Helgerson. Her portfolio is insane. Every image had me more and more in love. I can’t get over this 100-year-old Northwest Portland home she completely remodeled and made “fresh and current”.
Some of you may know that Corey and I moved into our current apartment back in April. We love our beautiful building and all the amazing amenities, but after four months we’ve come to the sad realization that we just don’t have enough space (too many amazing wedding gifts!!!). So, in three weeks we’ll be moving to a new place (I know, you must think we’re crazy) that is much bigger, but still located downtown. For those of you who know Portland, we’re currently in the Pearl District area and we’ll be moving to what some people call the Alphabet District or just Northwest. We’re super excited for more space and new scenery. As a result of the move, my mind is currently design-obsessed. Decorating a new space is just so much fun! One thing I know our new place will have: a chandelier. They are so beautiful and add the perfect amount of glam to a space.
A chic tablescape is one of those simple things in life that provides me inexplicable joy. I could look at pretty table settings for hours on end. They can be simple or grandiose, set for 2 or 20, it doesn’t matter. I want to have a dinner party just so I can set my table! Here are some that I’m loving today…
It’s rare I see a home and think I could move right in without changing a single thing. But this was definitely one of those homes. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s rustic yet modern and feels young and fresh. I wish I could just move right in.
The sun is finally shining in Portland. I’ve never been happier to get up and start my day than when I peel my eyes open and spy bright blue sky and beautiful morning light. I wish I was spending my day lounging in one of these gorgeous outdoor spaces…
