Smeg Obsessed

I've long been an admirer of the Smeg refrigerator. It's time to come clean about my obsession. What's not to love about this classic appliance? They come in a rainbow of colors and their 50s flare adds just the right touch of whimsy to kitchens in a wide variety of styles -- Just check out all these examples; From Scandinavian to Ultra Femme, the Smeg feels right at home.

Spotted: Modern Valet

The new Trine Bench/Valet caught my eye while browsing CB2 today.  Hooks and coat tree options are plentiful, but when it comes to valets there are few modern choices. Thanks to CB2 for filling the void!

Rejuvenation Los Angeles

I popped into H.D. Buttercup over the weekend and was excited to see that the Rejuvenaton's new location is open. Even browsing their website, I feel the need to start collecting houses in a wide variety of architectural styles so that I can buy every light they make. So, you can imagine what happened when I stepped into the brick-and-mortar store. Joy.  

The visual merchandising is beautiful! Of course, it helps to start with such beautiful products. In addition to their gorgeous lighting, they actually offer an array of other vintage-inspired products including pressed glass cake plates

Also to note, there are somewhat limited options out there for mid-century homes in the bathroom fixture and hardware department. Rejuvenation has a mid-century modern collection featuring products in brushed and polished nickel, in addition to their fabulous line of reproduction mid-century lighting

Cordelia Is Turning ONE!

Hello friends! It's been awhile...months fly by with the blink of an eye these days. Cordelia's first year is coming to a close (She's turning one already! How can that be?) and we're slowly starting to get into the swing of things...a little breathing room is nice...of course, it's just in time for her to start walking and the pace to change yet again! Although as crazy as it's been at times, it has been a most wonderful year and I can't fathom my life without that little girl. So, forgive me for blogging (and design in general) taking a back seat these days. My days have instead been filled with play dates, messy meals, and lots of laundry...and I'm loving every minute of it!

As we gear up for a little celebration we're having for Cordelia and her little friends in a couple of weeks, I thought I'd share some inspiration photos from my Pinterest board.  Be sure to follow me there for a peek into what I've been inspired by lately, as well as on Twitter and Facebook for more frequent updates. Enjoy!
