chronicling a love for design

Month: January, 2012

at home with Christiane Lemieux

because i’m addicted¬†featured this amazing new blog the glow. it is not only a beautiful photo journal, but also full of advice and tips for mothers and mothers-to-be. i love reading about the children’s clothing, nothing beats european brands in that category! below is DwellStudios founder Christiane Lemieux’s home in Manhattan, she is a true inspiration!

micro & quirky

whowhatwear(a great fashion resource) just did a great piece on micro prints. they featured this picture of the beautiful Jessica Stam, from a Roger Vivier event way back in September,2011. i love the pop of red in her lips and shoe choice!

sugar high

mmmm food pictures. i am a sucker for good looking pictures of sweets, except they always leave me wanting a chocolate chip cookie, even at 8:58 a.m. BraveTart is a chef/photographer/blogger who writes for SeriousEats and at her own blog. it is art, creativity and attention to detail at its finest!

an eccentric berlin bunker

interior design gifted advertising executive Christian Boros and his wife Karen Lohmann own this 1942 bunker in Berlin, Germany that was showcased in Elle Decor Jan/Feb 2012. something about german design sensibility, the crisp, stark, yet functional interiors, resemble my ideal style.



blending accents

this hotel was recently featured in Elle Decor for its amazing design both inside and out. i love the free- floating villa, which is one of 84 at the Balinese resort.
















now this is turning something that is an eye-sore and boring for us new yorkers into something that brightens a city block!


true beauty

i just adore Diane Kruger. this outfit is near perfection, the makeup, the hair, the prints!



like a trip home

one of my favorite bloggers, the uber-talented Vanessa Jackman, recently published a special set of photos called “Weekend Life”. they were all taken on long island during the sleepy, yet immensely beautiful off-season. ¬†it was like taking a trip home through the computer!

cold cream

the cold weather is upon us and one’s skin may be dry, dry,dry. never fear, Avene’s cold cream body lotion looks nice, smells amazing and most importantly works!

rooney mara @ golden globes

she has quite a ‘goth’ look to her, sometimes it is a bit much. regardless i love this plush black nina ricci gown.
