It’s Complicated…

Good Morning!! Hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Every time I walk into a new space, a feel like a sponge trying to absorb as much as I can.  My eyes quickly point down to look at the floor.  Head up checking out the lights.   It’s almost like a giddy electricity just shoots through me.  Sometimes the same goes for movies.  The plot’s great, cast outstanding, BUT the set…. Did you see the set?!? After staying up last night to suck in every moment of the Oscars, I started thinking about the last movie I saw whose Set design inspired me.  The first that came to mind was,  “It’s Complicated” by Nancy Meyers (and I must add Meryl Streep looked beautiful last night!, but I am glad Sandra Bullock won!).  The movie was wonderful, but I left and couldn’t stop thinking about this Santa Barbara home.

There were just so many elements to this house that I enjoyed.  I think it is timeless, lived in, cozy, and just stunning overall.  Hope you enjoyed this home and the Oscars last night.  Do you have a favorite movie set?

Enjoy your day!

Friday Faves: Crate and Barrel French island and dining table

Happy Friday!!
While putting together blog posts, I come across a lot of new products, remind myself of old favorites, or just stumble across things I feel I have to share at some point.  SO, I have decided to end the each week with “Friday Faves” which will incorporate just that! I figure lets start each weekend off with a fun find and some inspiration!

This weeks feature is a new item from Crate and Barrel: the French Kitchen Island and Dining Table.  I heart this look!

The island is 54.5″Wx28″Dx36.5″H, which is a good small/medium sized island and it lists for $999.  I also think that this would make a beautiful potting station outside on a covered porch!

The Dining table is 54″Wx34.25″Dx29.75″H, so you can sit four comfortably.  It list for $1299.

So what do you think? Did you find something great this week that you want to share? Send me an email if so, I would love to hear from you.

Enjoy your day!!
