Blue + Yellow = Chipper

I'm not typically drawn to yellow. But, when it's pared with blue it creates a fresh, zippy look. There is something very energetic about blue and yellow rooms. The two colors just work well together just look at the sun and the sky or a Van Gogh painting!

...because I love this fragrance amazing grace by Philosophy and because I dote on having this as my daily reminder...
xoxo...Happy Friday
I've pretty much decided; I am a sucker for all rooms that are not really put together. Nothing to perfect.
I love to see someones personality reflected in their room or home. Like, this disco ball hanging in the middle of the living room. It's so kooky, but that's what make it awesome! I also love this rooms worn in wide plank wood floors with the crisp white bead board applied to the walls and ceiling. Again, the destroyed leather chair with the stark white sofa.(Good Contrast)  But, most of all I like the RANDOM accessorizes that only this one room will possess...its very own uniqueness.

Classic {Chole & Camel}

I am quite fond of  Chole's fall ad campaign...I don't think there is any color much more classic than camel (well expect black, of course).
Plus, I love this large open room with it's rough stone surfaces and worn Greek columns filled with french antiques.
It's so Very Classy!

I Can't stop listening to...

...I really can't seem to turn this album off...I adore this Scottish band who's been making music for over a decade. My favorite songs on the My Maudlin Career album are French Navy, You Told A Lie, The Sweetest Thing, Away With Murder and James. Wishing they were playing on the west coast sometime soon.
