These photos of Venice by the awesomely talented Natalie Joos have me smiling ear to ear. I haven’t the slightest idea who these two ladies are, but clearly, they know how to have fun. “Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.” -Truman Capote
What motivates me? Gracie’s handpainted wallpaper. Did you know its production has been managed by the same Chinese family for over fifty years? Someday I want a living room (or dining room or dressing room…) covered in it. I’m thinking a vibrant Diana Vreeland red, but the orange is awfully tempting. Thankfully, I have plenty of time to decide ;)
My latest obsession? These swirl Kosta Boda tumblers. I mean, that orange? So darn smart. Bring on the bar cart!
Alexa Chung looks impossibly chic (in the best of tomboy ways…) in the latest Vogue Spain. Denim, loafers, and cashmere, please.

The J.Crew Collection fall 2012 lookbook is now online and as always, it’s seriously swoon-worthy. I’m loving the mix of patterns and textures — sequins, snakeskin, leopard, polka dots! I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get excited about autumn… ;)
