An Inspiring Space

While in the midst of juggling about ten different plates in the air, I found the time to sift through my emails and came across an ApartmentTherapy post about a quaint Santa Barbara bungalow. The home is just lovely and looks surprisingly roomy for only 540 sq. feet, but what truly inspired me about the space are the bright pops of color. It feels like a homemade quilt - warm, welcoming and safe. With all this family time and the holidays approaching, perhaps I am feeling a bit more sentimental than usual...

I love hidden gems. Better yet, long-forgotten (until now) gems lying deep beneath the surface of one of my favorite cities, NYC. Huffington Post recently posted photos of an abandoned City Hall station from 1904. The station closed in 1945 due to an unsafe gap at the platform, but it is still beautifully preserved. Take the 6 train to the end of the line and get off at the Brooklyn Bridge stop. As it loops back uptown, you can find this station. Apparently there is a trick to check out the station... check out the article here

A Shift...

a cold front is blowing through right now and the shift in weather is causing a shift in my mood as well. i can't stop thinking about brisk mornings, stormy beaches, heavy yarns, snowy days and intimate candlelit dinners... here are some images that best reflect what's going on in my head/heart...
