APT with LSD

I love the home tours by Lauren Santa Domingo on and the latest of model Elettra Wiedemann’s West Village apartment does not disappoint.  The rich hues of the living room are fantastic (love the brass lamps!) and I appreciate how everything is styled beautifully, yet casually.

Conifer on Gilt City!

One of the cutest San Francisco boutiques is having a fantastic sale, so naturally, I had to share the love. On April 30th, Conifer will open its doors to Gilt City members with a special in-store event. One ticket ($50) will include bubbly beverages and a $100 credit towards clothing, bags, shoes and jewelry. I have my eye on this silk dot pullover — does life get any sweeter? Tickets on sale through Tuesday :)

Seashells and such…

I just started to clear off this old bookcase (picked up at a thrift shop a few months back) so I can paint it. The light was nice so I snapped a few photos of my unruly shell collection before taking everything apart. This is only a very small glimpse of it. Someday, once I’ve finally finished decorating our little place, I’ll publish it somewhere so you can see the rest :)

P.S. Yes, Linda Rodin in Matchbook’s most recent issue is definitely a kindred spirit.
