Dream House: Home Office

I can't tell you how long I've dreamed of having a little two bedroom house so that I can use the 2nd bedroom as an office. Of course, that 2nd room would also be the library. It just kind of makes sense, especially for me, to combine the two. Here are some of my favorite ideas.

First day of Autumn

 photo hellofall.jpg

I'm so excited for Fall this year because it's been so damn hot this Summer! I'm ready for boots, and sweaters, and rain, and hot chocolate, and Halloween, and is anyone as excited as I am for the Once Upon A Time premiere this Sunday?!! Yes, I know it has nothing to do with the weather, but well, the theme is Frozen this season, so maybe it kinda does. What's your favorite thing about Fall?

Dream House: Closets

So I'm finishing up the master suite with this post. June was master baths and the previous month was master bedrooms. I was reading a book a few weeks ago where the main character has a huge closet, like the size of her master bedroom huge with another room off of it just for her shoes. I honestly can't imagine having a closet that big, let alone having enough clothes to fill it with. It just seems ridiculously excessive. And overwhelming. I mean, how would you even decide what to wear every day? I can barely decide from my 20 or so different combinations of outfits every day. I'd have to get a system set up like in Clueless that has all my clothes on the computer and the computer could decide for me.

Anyway, so closets. Here are some that caught my eye, though I have a feeling when the time comes I'll be designing something custom to fit my own needs. Or possibly something from Ikea.

P.S. I've been trying to put together a post about my trip to Vegas two weekends ago and finding myself unequal to the task. I have more pictures than I've taken in the past two years put together and I don't know what to do with them. Hopefully I'll have that figured out soon.

A Magical Birthday

Happy Birthday to JK Rowling and Harry Potter, one of my favorite fictional characters of all time.

P.S. Daniel Radcliffe's birthday was the 23rd.

Best Movie Poster. Ever.

I just saw this and got the chills. I already love The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I'm also one of those weird people that loves dragons so much I often imagine what it would be like if a dragon flew by overhead. How big would it be? (I mean, really that's tough to visualize. There isn't anything to compare that sight to except an airplane and they don't get that low to the ground.) Would it be a monstrous dragon that immediately started charring everything to bits and eating people, or would it be one of intelligence that was simply curious? Either way, I think I'd be too in awe at the sight of it to move. (Plus, the dragons in my stories are of the latter kind, so that's just how I imagine them.)

So this movie poster just takes the cake for me. I really cannot wait for this.

Happy Friday!

Dream House: Pools

My birthday is just around the corner and we're in the middle of a gorgeously warm summer (today is supposed to be the hottest day of the year). Naturally, I'm daydreaming of pools and time spent out in the sun. So many of these pools make me want to leave work and fly to an island where all the water is clear blue and the infinity pools (I'm so obsessed with those) seem to melt right into the ocean.

If you've never visited the design file on the Architectural Digest website, I highly recommend it. Check out even more amazing pools here. I hope you're having a relaxing summer!
