Happy Tuesday! After sharing a peek at my new mirror last week, I thought I'd share another recent edition...a Lulu & Georgia Audrey Lamp. I'm the kind of gal that needs a clean and organized desk; clutter messes with my creative mojo. I tried to have one of those beautifully accessorized and styled desks with an eclectic gallery wall or giant mood board above, but both options just felt like too much. (Weird, I know.) I've since opted for a more minimalistic look, focusing on a few statement accessories mixed in with items that are purely functional. It all started with the golden deer...and the Audrey lamp (c/o Lulu & Georgia) was the perfect piece to tie it all together. I love the oversized scale and the gold detail just plain rocks. And I try to treat myself to fresh flowers as often as possible; they really are the best inspiration. The end result is a functional, stylish nook to design and blog from. What do you think of my pick?

After brunch on Mother's Day, we wandered around the Mackenzie Child's department in Neiman Marcus. (Mama Fab collects the Courtley Check.) Erin and I spotted a pair of these bonnet chairs and instantly fell in love. Since spending five grand on a pair of outdoor chairs isn't gonna happen, I couldn't help but decorate around them virtually. Since they're so bold, I'd balance them out with some white accessories, and keep things a tiny bit traditional a jute rug and a couple of potted boxwoods. Dreamy, isn't it?

I thought it would be fun to share a little behind the scene peek at a blog design I recently wrapped up for Alyssa of Le Closet. She was an absolute delight to work with and I just adore the way it all turned out. Isn't that little hint of bright green the best? Check out the whole shebang here.

What a day...I'm posting this at 10:30 pm, if that's any indication.
I couldn't let us slip into the weekend without wishing you a happy one though.
[ A FEW FAVORITES FROM THE WEEK ]
I loved this behind the scenes post on how Gwenyth's Met Gala dress came together.
(She's still my fave...even though people love to hate her.)
Glitter Guide's "3 Ways To Style Your Entryway" was one of my favorites this week.
(The gold & white neutral version is my favorite. Shocker.)
I up picked the most adorable mini-straightener for my bangs.
(Sounds ridiculous, but it's a total game-changer.)
A pair of these pretties are on their way to me.
(Thanks to Gaby for the intro...she's like the cool Etsy shop whisperer.)
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

I thought I'd share a little peek at a corner of my bedroom...my dresser vanity. It's one of my favorite parts of the room because it's both pretty and functional. Thanks to a few trays, I can pile jewelry, sunglasses and whatever else at the end of the day without it looking too messy. The crown jewel if definitely the mirror (c/o Pulp Home); the unique shape is so unexpected. It's insanely gorgeous in person...a perfect mix of both silver and gold tones. What do you think of my little nook?
