Nursery Renovation & Houzz Feature: Nursery Color & Pattern Play

Important baby project numero uno (aside from the petite bebe herself?), why the nursery of course. I am excited the folks at Houzz love everything as much as I do.

Definitely check the site out for even more nursery decor was one of my go-to sources for creative and original baby space ideas. Think outside the princess pink and boyish blue! I dare you!


Use the help of top home decorators to select matching a bed table and a new lampshade for your own bedroom design.
From wall paper to stencils for walls, upholstery fabrics to room dividers, design doesn't stop at construction.



Babies be Babies: Celebrity Babe Edition


Some baby inspiration.....while I am in the trenches. These seriously chic mamas and their babes make it look down right easy. I don't think there is enough concealer in the world to cover my bags...and I use heavy artillery, Cle de Peau, worth every penny.

What do you think of all the 'bunnies' and mummies, as Julia Restoin Roitfeld calls them (images via Romy and the Bunnies)? 

Some much needed inspiration when I realize it is 12:00 and I haven't gotten out of my pajamas!!


From the top, Brigitte Bardot and Nicolas, 1960.

Elizabeth Taylor and Liza, 1957.

Marlene Dietrich and Maria Riva, 1930.

Francoise Hardy, Jacques Dutronc and Thomas, 1973.

And last but certainly not least, Jane Birkin and Kate.


For more stylish mamas (getting their glow on) and their tots, be sure to follow along on Pinterest, Maternity Chic and Babies be Babies.


Veronica Beard S/S 2014

Canary yellow me. The duo at Veronica Beard are clearly banking that this is the shade to be in, for spring.

I can't say that I own any yellow but they make a convincing case to acquire some, case and point, this clear trench piped in the sunny shade.

The collection is an ode to the NYC of the 80's. Spray paint. Subway graffiti. A little bit gritty.

A total juxtaposition with the bright, cheerful print and pattern of the line. 

Any excuse to wear a leopard suit, really. I'll definitely be on the look out for that number....
