New Blog Discovery

I always love to find new street style blogs! This chic has some serious fashion creds. Her blog is called After Style Comes Fashion and I love her laid back look that manages to be polished at the same time. I think I'm so obsessed with her style due to our mutual love of blazers. Here's one of her recent looks I can't get enough of:

Her outfit could almost be inspired by this neutral but exciting room. I love how the space manages to look layered:

Fashionable Interior Match

Ahhh! Things are so crazy right now moving into our new office, but it is looking goooood... I'm so excited to share it with you, but it's not completely done. I will hint that the black trim in my office looks awesome! I was so nervous to do it, but love the outcome. Here's something I haven't done for awhile: a classic Fashionable Interiors match. I fell in love with the warmth this room evoked and how the design was able to marry trend with a classic look. It's designed by Elizabeth Kimberly, and I knew I could find the perfect outfit to go with it:
Question: How do you feel about the whole "dressed up sweatpant" look? I don't know if I can pull this one off...

Also, Happy Birthday to my big sister! This is for you!

So English chic, right?

Here's how I would incorporate them into my wardrobe:

I love the idea of pairing a warm knit with something as sleek as leather and sequins. Perfect for all your holiday parties!

New Office Design

As mentioned in a prior post, Tendenza is expanding its business by opening a home showroom, selling flooring, home decor, wallpaper, kitchen cabinets, etc! The massive stressor I'm dealing with at the moment is setting the place up. The office I work in, Folino Homes, will be moving as well to be next to the showroom, meaning new design project!

I find it even more difficult to design for myself than for anyone else. I've been having a serious debacle with making decisions and sticking with them, which is probably one of the most annoying parts of working with new homeowners when they have to make selections for a new Folino home. Yep, I'm my worst nightmare come true...

Anyway, I've finally made some decisions and wanted to share my design board with you! I'd love to hear your feedback. This board is for the main office (not mine, yet!)

The font is super tiny, so click on the image to zoom in. They're painting this week, so let's cross our fingers I'll like the colors! I'm working on my office design board and will be sharing it with you the second its complete!

Pantone Color 2011

Welp, Pantone's color was just released for 2011. Can't say I'm in love with it, but at least it's cheery! It's called Honeysuckle and it's a saturated bright pink. I like pink just like the next girl, it's just not my first choice of colors.

 Click here to download the pdf for the fashion color forecast. I was blown away with the fashion illustrations in the catalog. I'm even considering printing some to frame!

Here are some designs that are already rocking 2011's color:
Check back next week for a fun giveaway from Cabbage & Roses!

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Whew! It is FREEZING this Monday morning! It's got me wanting to escape to the mountains, in a nice warm lodge, sipping a capp by the fire. My husband and I (that still sounds so foreign by the way) are hoping to squeeze a lodge weekend in this winter, so of course I have to choose a cabin that's well decorated and pack the appropriate suitcase.

And these Elle Decor shots have me wanting to buy a dump cabin an hour from where we live and turn it into this exact design. Chicest. Lodge. Ever.

These shots are from the latest issue. There are just no words:

Fair-isle sweaters are very of the moment. Perfect for packing!

Here's an outfit I'd love to bring along:
Sweater - Delias / scarf - Urban Outfitters / necklace - Sorrelli / tee - / boots - / cashmere leggings - / duffle - D&G via
