motivation monday

i have a love/hate relationship with monday; on one hand it’s the start of a brand new week, on the other hand, it’s a monday…need i say more? tonight i was in need of some major motivation so i pulled open some of my coffee table reads (yes, i actually like and look at my coffee table books) and decided to share a few of my favorites that inspire me. enjoy!

1.// living with pattern: color, texture, and print at home

this book by rebecca atwood covers everything from pattern and texture to furniture within a space and so much more. i personally like this one because it takes you from room to room, giving you tips for each of your spaces.

2.// in the company of women

this book by grace bonney is the definition of inspiration, plus so much female power — you really can’t go wrong with this pick.

3.// the coveteur: private spaces, personal style

this book by stephanie mark with photos by jake rosenberg is a must-have! the pop of colors and beautiful personal spaces make this one of my personal faves.

4.// the little book of life hacks

this book by yumi sakugawa is adorable! the little life tips and illustrations are just too cute to resist. even if i’m not looking for a life tip, this book always makes me smile when i open it.

5.// nasty galaxy

this book by sophia amoruso reminds you to own it. simply put and i couldn’t love her (or this book) more for it.



cookin’ something up

let’s chat kitchens! we have a galley kitchen which means that we have minimal space, which to be honest, i don’t mind. the way i see it, less space, less stuff — no clutter, no collecting things i don’t need or use. since we have minimal space, everything we have in our kitchen is also very minimal in terms of design. below are a few of the things we have and a few of the other options i love!

work hard, relax harder

holidays are usually pretty crazy for me at work but i’m looking forward to having a few days off over christmas so i can spend some much needed time updating our office space. there’s something about having a crisp, clean office space that i find so motivating. here’s a few things i am highly considering for our space!

1.// delicate floral pattern wall art

if you haven’t heard of Deny Designs you are seriously missing out! seriously, i wish i had more walls that i needed to fill with art because i’m obsessed! with each purchase the artist actually gets part of the proceeds and i mean, how cool is that?!

2.// nate berkus desk supplies

i got these as a gift but unfortunately these babies are currently out of stock, however, you can find more swoon-worthy desk supplies here!

3.// sansevieria with planter

naturally i had to add a pop of green to this space and i love this artificial plant; it’s not too much but not too little + it has some height to it so it would be perfect for the corner of a space.

4.// linden gray area rug

there is just something about a fuzzy rug beneath my feet that i can’t resist. i love that this one is all gray in color – makes for a great rug in any space because gray is neutral in my book!

5.// carnegie desk chair

well, what can i say? i’m a sucker for gray and i also really just loved the timeless look of this chair.

6.// oscar desk lamp

lamps are so fun! seriously there are SO many different styles of lamps out there. i chose this one because i was drawn to the mixed material.

7.// MICKE desk

saved the most important part of the space for last…the desk! as i mentioned earlier, i wanted to keep the space crisp and clean. if you’re anything like me when i work, i make a mess as it is, so working with white and layering in simplistic design elements really helps to keep it looking clean and open.


most wonderful time of the year

i don’t know about you guys but i am the worst procrastinator when it comes to christmas shopping! i don’t know why that’s the case, especially considering how much i love seeing someone’s face light up when i nail the perfect gift, but every year i’m running around to throw together a last minute gift…not this year! i’ve managed to pull together some of the chicest gifts a gal could ask for — most of them coming from my favorite new spot on amazon, the new & interesting finds section. talk about amazing one-of-a-kind gifts! here a few gift ideas, some of which i’m kind of hoping i end up with myself!

2.// harper collins dior coffee table book

i’m a pure sucker for a good coffee table book.

3.// calypso basics by reston lloyd tea kettle

because i love tea and because it’s sooo cute!

4.//pantone universe classic cup

the artist in me couldn’t resist AND it comes in so many colors!

5.// fujifilm instax mini 9 instant camera

guys, i just got this and ugh, it’s the funnest camera ever!

6.// iZM100

this Zenergy Candle by iHome is so fun! meditative lighting, breathing guide and sound therapy?! perfect for the person who needs to relax.

7.// paddywax hygge collection scented soy wax candle

another one of those gifts everyone loves.

8.// herbivore botanicals coco rose body polish

herbivore botanicals – all natural rose hibiscus hydrating face mist

i’m in love with the simplistic packaging of these products + you literally can’t go wrong!

9.// square acrylic box in iridescent drusy

Kendra Scott owns my heart + if you own gift idea #5, this cute little box is perfect for storing those little photos in!

tiny treasures

one of my favorite things about my home are the tiny details that make a space completely unique. over the past year i’ve spent a lot of time collecting little trinkets that each have their very own spot within with my home and i wanted to share a few of my favorites with you! you never know where you’ll find inspiration – keep those eyes peeled!
