apartment snapshots

a couple of weeks ago, the boy and i stepped into west elm where i sort of went a little nuts. you see, i love that place. i would move in if they would let me, except… i don’t want to live in emeryville. dealbreaker. i’ve also resigned myself to the fact that my place will never look like their catalog – our design tastes don’t exactly overlap very often, and as a result our decor “situation” isn’t exactly cohesive (read: you wouldn’t know a girl lived here unless you looked in the closet…okay and maybe the bathroom). we left empty-handed and on the ride home, i’m pretty sure i had a decor identity crisis. it was fun for all… i assure you.

when we got home, the boy went to sleep and i placed an order online (heh heh). all was well in the world! and when the package(s) finally arrived and i had set everything out, he actually sort of approved, meaning nothing “disappeared” the next day.

ikea striped throw (also featured here), west elm bijoux dots and triangle pillows

yeah. there are a lot of fake dogs in this household (not shown: z gallerie pug bookends).

creature comforts

October 9, 2011 § 3 Comments

dreaming of chilly weather, if only to have a reason for indulging in these fall and winter-friendly delights…

get cozy

an oversized cashmere sweater that’s cute with leggings, boots, or last night’s pajamas…

cable knit socks, because you’ve been wearing sport socks under your boots and you’ve been told it’s weird.

mini (and deliverable!) black and white cookies for snacking, so you don’t have to steal them from the dessert table at your cousin’s wedding.

a childlike critter hat, because at $9.95 you can afford an “indoor” hat (if you’re not sure about wearing it out)!

a mug with a wise friend inside, so you don’t have to sip alone.

moccasins, because they were cool when you were a kid and they’ve made a comeback.

a sleeping fox pillow, for a bit of wilderness indoors.

and a striped throw, because your roomie/boyfriend wouldn’t let you get the striped sheets. humph.

anyway… what’s your favorite creature comfort this time of year? 🙂
