Happy first day of Fall everyone! While I’m not too excited about the cooler weather, I am excited about starting school in 10 DAYS!!!! 10 days! I’m so excited. So as I wrap up things at work and transition to my school schedule things may be posted a little more sporadically here - but they will be posted, so keep checking in!

Fun with chevron! I love this funky, bold pattern. And while this photo is very fun to look at, I definitely think it’s overkill on the pattern in a real life situation. Any of these chevron accents though would be great on their own - and the more color, the better!

Well it’s official, I now want to decorate a retail store/boutique. I think this wall would look amazing in the sitting area of a dressing room. So Rachel Zoe-esque.

Restoration Hardware’s Fall 2011 Collection

O. MY. GOD.

Restoration Hardware’s Fall 2011 Collection catalog (or should I say, glossy magazine with the size of this thing) took my breath away. My eyes were popping as I turned the pages, especially starting with the birdcage chandelier. I mean, what’s $3000 when you’re making a statement like THAT?

OR a statement like the Foucault’s Orb Crystal Chandelier. Breath. Taken. Away. It’s just so beautiful. And elegant. And will most likely never be mine, wah wah wah haha.

While the majority of the Restoration Hardware catalog is a little too modern and industrial for my tastes, there were obviously other rooms that jumped out at me. I can absolutely see myself decorating with all of these pieces, especially the Library Leather Chairs, the Mayfair Steamer Double Chest Brushed Steel dresser, and the Subway Sign Art.

The next room belongs to my ideal man. I mean, seriously? Let’s get married.

And finally, you may remember my past attention to a very special room in the house - the man cave. Well talk about the modern man, man cave. How cool is that Polished-Nickel TV Easel?!

You, Restoration Hardware, brought it this season. Congratulations. Can’t wait to see what Spring 2012 brings already!

House Beautiful has it right with this amazing entry way. Bright, vibrant colors, plenty of storage space, and pillows galore. The weather here in DC has been rainy all week, and I know that if I stepped into my house and was welcome by this, it would wash the crappy weather away.

Weekend inspiration: Whimsical wallpaper

Pinterest pulls through again with great design inspiration - this time in the form of wallpaper. Why not head into the long Labor Day weekend with some design fun on the brain - who knows what creative ideas you may come up with on your extra day off!

Featured here is the whimsical wallpaper by Julia Rothman, an extremely talented Brooklyn artist and designer. It makes me want to design outside of the box!

Not only do I dream of having a chaise lounge just like this in my home one day but I also have recently been thinking that one just like it needs to go in my coworker’s new bedroom that I’m going to be helping her redecorate. Hm, now just to find the perfect fit…
P.S. These pillows are pretty fantastic as well.
