Hello Bling

So this post isn't about the bling you might think, no fancy jewelry or big diamonds.  Instead it's one very bling-y light fixture.  I've been obsessed with the look of this ochre chandelier for quite some time now.  The Robert Abbey Bling fixture is one I found with a very similar look.  It has a much more affordable price tag but is still on the high end for our bathroom budget which I've been trying really hard to keep in line.  Here is the ochre version in many forms.

Here is the Robert Abbey version I found here for an even more affordable price than its usual.

I cannot wait for this guy to arrive at my door. It is going to hang in our guest bath whose reno is happening as you read.  I'll be back tomorrow with some photos of this project, including a sneak peak of herringbone floor tile!

A few of my Favorite Things

Two things I love:

1. Wood Floors
2. Basketweave Pattern

We have wood floors throughout the majority of our condo and last year we installed a basketweave mosaic tile on our bathroom floor. Of all the photos of beautiful rooms I've exposed myself to over the last few years I was yet to encounter this:

Yes folks, that is a wood floor laid in a basketweave pattern. The best of both worlds.  I could really stare at these floors all day.

Found via my real estate stalking. Small price tag of 4 mil.

Wedding Wednesday

For those of you who have not seen photos of Molly Sim's Wedding, I have to share a major treat. Check out the most gorgeous bridesmaid dresses (& bridesmaids) you've ever seen.

I adore the mix of neutrals, darks, color block, & patterns.

Goodbye Steve Jobs

A good daily reminder to find your passion, find what you love, and do it everyday. From the man who wanted us to dream bigger and gave us the tools to do so.
