Beautifully Organized Space of the Week

This week’s beautifully organized space is from the home of interior designer and fellow design blogger Erica Cook. She keeps her makeup organized in sectioned drawer trays, her jewelry in beautiful boxes, and a few select pieces out to enjoy in perfectly styled vignettes that are free of clutter -only what she uses and loves:

Erica once suggested to me that her and I may be style twins. I’d definitely agree. We have similar taste and seem to be drawn to the same things (case in point: I also have amethyst rocks and tiffany boxes in little vignettes).To check out how uber stylishly this mother of five boys lives, click on over to her blog Moth Design. She shares many other gorgeous shots of her uh-mazing home.

Happy Weekend!

Sorry for the absence Thursday and Friday. I was a busy busy bee and unfortunately didn’t have much time for blogging. Anyways happy it’s the weekend and have some leisurely moments now. I finally had a chance to sit down and enjoy the premiere issue of Rue this morning. As expected it was filled with stylish inspiration galore. My favorite home tour was Crystal‘s simple yet glamorous bachelorette pad.

Her home is a perfect example of the fact that you don’t have to have tons of money to achieve a chic, beautifully put together decor. Several of her pieces were from Ikea and local thrift shops.
What was your favorite home tour? If you haven’t checked out the magazine yet -click on over!

Print Magazines!

Two things:

1) The lovely Katie of The Neo-Traditionalist just reported that Lonny magazine is now available in print! She writes: “While in New York last month I had the opportunity to meet with Editor-In-Chief Michelle Adams (the girl is seriously too cute for words…) and see the hard copy. It is BEAUTIFUL! Each edition will run between $30 – $40, but at around 200 pages each they look closer to a keepsake design book than your average glossy. Lucky for us, the current issue will be available to order on Wednesday and the archives will be made available in the next few weeks.” They will continue to look for cheaper alternatives and the online edition will continue to be free of course, but for anyone who loved a particular issue, it may be worth the splurge. (BTW did you know issues of Domino magazine go for up to $80 per issue on ebay?!)


2) Have you heard of Anthology? It’s a new quarterly shelter and lifestyle print magazine that takes a narrative approach to its coverage of home décor, travel, design, entertaining, and culture. The first issue is available for preview online:

anthology issue1

Since the magazine explores a theme and is written as a collection of stories, looks like something I could curl up with and take my time reading. I love the title of the premiere issue: The Slow Life. It’s focused on the idea of taking it easy and taking pleasure in the simple things :)

Yearly subscriptions are $38 and single issues are $12.

Portable Storage Baskets

A tote basket is a beautiful solution for containing and conveniently transporting files and/or project supplies from room-to-room.

I’m loving these hand-woven fair trade imports from Tango Zulu:

P.S. You can also use ’em as market totes, magazine holders, picnic baskets…there’s a multitude of uses!
