pretty as a peach

First, if you are my landlord you should stop reading right now. 

If you are not my landlord, you can help me solve my latest dilemma. I just moved into a cozy little studio last week (no fireplace but there is a dressing room..!) and was intent on not painting the walls. But before I had my kitchen unpacked, I began to resent the  predetermined run-of-the-mill drab khaki color of the walls. They absolutely have to go. 

I thought about pale gray, I thought about pale lavender... but I've always found the warm peach color of the Hovey sister's glamourous grandmother's apartment to be perfect. (P.S. The space is featured in full in their book, Heirloom Modern... you need to see it.) I've tried Benjamin Moore's "Conch Shell" and  a coral-peach from Sherwin Williams - both were a no-go. A friend suggested Farrow & Ball's "Pink Ground", but that may be a touch too pink! What do you think? Sadly, I don't think I will sleep well until this is figured out :)

storage for nerds

The librarian in me desperately wants Land of Nod's Circulation Chest. It only looks like a card catalog - a few of the drawers are much wider than they appear to be (which I think makes this piece a little more functional!). If I were to place this in my home, I'd be sure to add little gold "feet" to dress up the legs a bit. I'm hopeful that one day I'll be able to find (and afford) the real thing, but it's nice to know that I have options :)

tory burch at home in manhattan

How lucky was I to stumble across these big, beautiful photos of Tory Burch's Manhattan apartment? The details in her incredibly luxe, über waspy abode are certainly a feast for the eyes. Take a closer look, and you’ll see that every inch is primped and polished to the utmost degree: the intricate crown molding, the perfectly arranged books paired with perfectly proportional trinkets, the sumptuous trim… Interior designer Daniel Romualdez did a fantastic job translating the fashion mogul’s vision into reality. This apartment, classic American and vibrant, just screams Tory!
