The World: Tuscany

I dreamt I was in Tuscany last night staying in a beautiful house with amazing views of rolling hills and red roofs. It's been a long time desire of mine to travel Europe (with UK, France, and Italy being my top three choice destinations). I woke up feeling ready to pack my bags, but for now I'll have to live my dream virtually via pictures.

Currently Coveting: Pale Grey Sofas

If you ask me my favorite color, I'll say green. But one look in my closet, work office, and pinboards will tell you it's grey. Really, it's probably a toss up between the two.

I've always been drawn to charcoal sofas/upholstery, but lately the paler greys have been whispering to me that they also are deserving of love...







The last one is my faaaaavorite. I could absolutely live in that room (though I would probably change the rug). The baby topiary in the striped pot just kills me. So cute.

I find I am frequently at odds with myself over whether I love neutral palettes or brightly colored palettes more. I compromise by having both in my house - my bedroom is very neutral (especially since my latest curtain update that I have not posted about yet) and my home office is super bright and happy. I keep going back and forth on the direction I want to go in my living room though. So indecisive.

Currently Coveting: Topiary

I've been completely enamored with topiary lately.


Here's hoping whatever house I end up buying in the future has a yard that's conducive to this look. There's something so very pleasing about a fastidiously groomed yard. I like the touch of elegance and artistry it brings. The round ones are my favorite.






Don't get me wrong - I love a good naturalized yard as well, but topiary and striped lawns make my heart sing. So lovely!
