Black & White

I have been pinning a lot of things black and white lately, which is a bit strange since I'm not usually drawn to that aesthetic.  It's funny how your mood, the weather or the time of day can affect your preferences.  Even though I wanted an all white house when I was younger (yes, ALL white - white wood, white furniture, white paint) I would have never thought that I could live in that setting now.  But, looky looky - here I am pinning away until my heart's content. 

Black and white, you're growing on me!

Dear Cold Weather,

Please, please don't go away just yet.  I am enjoying layers far too much to have to put them back up in my closet.  My coats don't get as much use as they should, and they are some of my favorites!  There is just nothing better than layers upon layers of solid neutrals.  That is why you come around, right?  So we can pack on as many clothes as possible.

Bohemian Modern

SF Girl By Bay is one of my all time favorite blogs - the design, the style, the character, all of it.  It's bohemian perfection in my eyes, and I should have expected that her home would blow me away as well.

If I could dream up a modern abode for myself, it would be this home.  Simple with quirky details and modern with lots of charm.  I wouldn't really consider myself to be drawn to modern design (I'm a more eclectic kind of girl), but this home marries both styles seamlessly.

You can see the whole tour here.

A Colorful Start

Here we are...2013.  It's the start of a new year, and I am gravitating towards color.  And lots of it!  I'm not much for color when it comes to my wardrobe but am definitely a fan when it comes to the home.  I'm ready to do some cleaning out and rearranging to where we are only left with the pieces that we love - and they are full of color!

What are you drawn to this year?  Colors, neutrals, solids, patterns?
