If I had the budget and means, I’d redecorate every few months, adjusting for seasons, whims and moods. But checking out the inventory at Chairish and creating these potential room accents around their vintage accent chairs was nearly as satisfying. Check out this site’s innovative take on buying, selling, and trading high quality, unique interior design items directly from their original owners – it’s the best thing to happen to estate sales since Craigslist. Oh, wait…

Dot-And-Bo Interior Design Items on Sale

I’ve been on a mission lately to figure out how to reinvent my two-bedroom apartment and maximize its space potential. Adding a curious toddler and two creatives who use the living and dining areas as work stations means having to keep things clean and functional with a touch of whimsy because, well, it would be boring otherwise.

Trends: The Ampersand Obsession

Ampersand Collage on Bubbles & Ink

This recent ampersand logo trend has particularly caught my attention because it’s long been an obsession of mine as the quintessential symbol for my name (my initials before marriage were A.M.P.) combined with my love of writing and thus vintage typewriters. Does that make sense? Regardless, I’m a sucker for good typography design accents (I do love that Bubbles & Ink logo), so I’ve compiled a little cluster of cool pieces that I wouldn’t mind adding to my own collection. What do you think of this ampersand trend? I’m obsessed with that marquee lamp. Got any favorites?

Year Three

Jean Godfrey-June of Lucky Magazine interviews Lauren Conrad

Another year gone by and, yet again, when the 18th of May rolls around, I get that nagging suspicion I’ve forgotten something…which, of course, I inevitably have. The 18th marked my third year of blogging. When I looked back at year two, I thought there was no way I would top it, but just now looking back at my third year, I realize I have so much to be grateful for – and things are only getting better. Here’s a look back at my favorites (click on each pic to see more). Hope you enjoy. And THANK YOU SO MUCH for reading. <3

Nesting: The Nursery Project

Nesting: The Nursery Project

Truth be told, I’ve probably been nesting for quite some time now – probably, some would argue, well before I even thought about getting pregnant. But once the hormones kicked in, I went into overdrive hitting up HomeGoods in an embarrassingly cliched way.
