Every time I swing by Camila’s darling Effortless Style I walk away feeling inspired. The design maven is a DIY queen with serious decorating flair. She’s also kindly offered any of my Neo-Trad readers a discount on her e-design services so if you’re looking to spruce your place up I suggest you head her way : )
P.S. Her blog header is the c-u-t-e-s-t thing I’ve seen in a long while, don’t you agree?
Love stumbling upon new images of the stunningly beautiful Grace Kelly. These two shots are by Mark Shaw. I have a book of his photographs of the Kennedy family that I found in a thrift shop some time ago—adore his work!
LOVE these two shots of Ann Mashburn’s living room in Atlanta. The pink sofas, sisal rug and lucite coffee table are right up my alley. I just read about her new store on Unabashedly Prep this morning and nearly died—too chic for words!
Morning loves! I have some exciting news for you—starting today the Matchbook team will be doing a giveaway every Tuesday until our launch in January! This week we’re giving away a large print by Swedish fashion illustrator Kristina Hultkrantz of Emma Kisstina. The poster is 30cm x 40cm (11.8″ x 15.7″) and the winner gets to choose from any of Kristina’s darling designs. I personally am torn between the Lolita-inspired frames and stack of classics, but the choice is all yours! To enter simply “like” Matchbook on Facebook and leave a comment below telling us your favorite illustration. We’ll draw a winner tomorrow at 4pm EST. In the meantime I encourage you to live vicariously through Kristina’s charming Stockholm adventures on her blog. I’m a regular visitor ; )
UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner, Laura Marie! I hope you love your new print! xx
Bonne chance and thank you so very much for your support!
Somebody pinch me! I just came home to a darling letterpress invitation in the mail to a dinner party hosted by Kate Spade’s very own Deborah Lloyd. Luckily it’s next week and I’ll already be in New York shooting projects with my Matchbook team. As you can imagine I’m in a bit of a tizzy—what to wear? What to say? How not to faint? Any pointers for me, ladies? What would you say/ask/wear to dine with this inspiring woman?!
