Monochromatic Monday: Boho Island Fantasy

Good Monday morning, m’dears! Hope you all had a great weekend. As predicted, ours was totally relaxing and fun: hours splashing around in the pool, a dinner-and-movie date, bbq with the family, lots of errand running, long lunch at Blue Dahlia…and I even got my hospital bag packed! (Have I mentioned that I really like to… read more


Baggage Check :: Santorini

When I (Kelly) saw Giselle sizzling across the pages of Vogue in this Versace number, I knew had to check out the whole line straight away… and oh am I glad I did!  The SS12 collection is truly breathtaking, and since we’re feeling so blue these days (in a good way, don’t worry) we’re all… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Retro Palm Springs

Is it really Monday already?! Not sure about you, but I could definitely use one more day of weekend…so I figured the next best thing was a shiny, happy, retro inspiration board to give us all a jolt of energy (that, and a very strong cappuccino.) Have to admit that I’m multi-tasking with today’s board as… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Sea Glass

Around this time every year, I start dreaming of the ocean. Just as it gets cold enough to pull out my winter coat, I can’t seem to stop thinking about strolling in the surf with the hot sun on my shoulders. Can anyone sympathize? Today’s inspiration board is meant to take us away for a moment,… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Water Colors

I worked on this inspiration board over the weekend, as I stretched out under a big fan on the patio, frosty glass of iced tea in hand, and tried to escape the extreme heat that’s consumed Austin for the better part of July. It’s no surprise that I found myself gravitating towards cool, watery images… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Aqua + Apricot

Today’s inspiration board has a bit more going on than usual…I think you’ll agree that there’s nothing too monochromatic about this Monday! Perhaps it’s due to my recent craving for unconventional color combos, like this intriguing palette of aqua & apricot with rich shots of emerald. It all started with that can’t-take-your-eyes-off-it fashion photo by… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Garden + Sky

Okay, okay…so I cheated just a tad on today’s Monochromatic Monday board. It spotlights two completely different shades (making it not so monochromatic) but you really can’t blame me for being completely inspired by the interplay of leafy greens against a clear cerulean sky. Set a long table with bright blue linens & stoneware, and… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Aquamarine

Today’s inspiration board is a saturated dose of vibrant color to welcome the warm days & balmy nights of spring. Usually I associate the word aquamarine with a soothing wash of watery blues…but this color palette is punched up with poppy details for a look that’s much more zesty than zen. A brilliant bouquet of… read more


Monochromatic Mondays :: Teal

A sunny weekend ended on a surprisingly brisk note here in Austin, and it seems we may have to wait a bit longer before embracing the first days of spring. Today’s inspiration board seems especially fitting in cool shades of aqua that evoke an icy chill, yet also hint at days spent lounging in a… read more


Mad Men Goes Modern

Terribly late on today’s post, but I’ve been busy pitching a party concept to Brilliant Magazine for their “Mad Men Goes Modern” soiree.  My inspiration board sticks to a palette of black, white, & red (to convey retro glamour) with pops of aqua (to say we’re not taking ourselves too seriously!)  Think low lighting, flickering… read more
