On My Mind

Just a couple of things I’ve got my eye on. I know it’s fall and all, but my mind always seems to think in summer and spring.

Wanting

stILe Finds: Summer Outfit

I’ve seen this picture a few times before, but today I decided to take it from The City Sage.

For a while I was really worried Los Angeles would not receive a Summer this year, which would be entirely cruel and evil of Mother Nature. I don’t care if we’re gifted with 75 degree weather throughout most of the year, no sweater weather kinda nights are what I live for. But alas, my prayers have been answered and we’ve been experiencing some warmer days and nights. Unfortunately, Summer is practically over but that’s alright by me because I have a feeling it’ll still feel like Summer come December.  This room made me all happy-cheery and wanna create a Summer outfit based around these colors. Fly enough for a wedding even.

This has got to be one the dreamiest pictures of Los Angeles I’ve ever seen. And one of the most romantic lace dresses I’d like to call my own.

stILe finds: Lighting

Our bathroom renovation started on Monday and it now looks like this:

Who wants to call first dibs on the shower now? Be my guest.

The picture looks as old as the tile but believe me when I tell you it was taken this morning.

Here’s what our bathroom used to look like:

Goodbye minty green tile. I’m sure you were way cool in your heyday.

If all goes according to plan, I should be able to share After pictures in about four weeks.  While we patiently wait for the hot mess to be completed, I’ll share some pendant options I’m thinking about using in the space.  The bathroom isn’t huge so I don’t want to pick something that completely overpowers the room.  The tile going in is white and the paint color will be soothing, so I also want the light fixture to be the key piece that makes people go, “ooooh, ahhhhh.”

I can already picture this one from here centered right dab in the middle of the bathroom.

Ooh, I can picture this one too. So dainty, antique looking and utterly refined. But best of all, inexpensive.

The simplicity of this West Elm one also draws in my attention.

Chandelier without all the drama. I like.

That’s it, I think I’m going with this one.

Perfect for when I want people to say, “What The F*ck”, and completely discredit any stile people may have thought I had.

This one from Urban Electro is waaaay more than I’m willing to spend, but in an ideal world I’d have it installed as soon as all the other rubbish was out the door.

Ugh, I can’t afford this one either. Why am I torturing myself by searching for lighting I can’t buy, you ask? I don’t know, I kinda like it.

I can’t decide. Help! What do you think? Which one would you pick? If your choice is the butterfly one, you need not comment and perhaps you shouldn’t be reading this blog. : )

Until Tomorrow,

stILe finds: Boy's Nursery

Nope, still not pregnant.

I spied on The Sistah’s facebook comments after she posted about my mention in the SFGate and read her pregnant friend’s comment that asked if I’d design her nursery. She may have been kinda joking, but I’m dead serious and created an inspiration board with no clue as to what she even has in mind for her little man. Here’s what I came up with.

Boys  Nursery

In case you’re wondering what those two dots are on the top left corner, they’re paint swatches. The darker hue would be an accent wall and the three remaining walls would be painted in the lighter color. The crib is from The New Traditionalists. The black and white striped rug is from IKEA, as is the white side chair, which I thought should have a throw pillow made from fabric from here. The giraffe lamp is Jonathan Adler. Bamboo Shades can be found at Home Depot and Lowe’s, I’m sure. Espresso changing table adds contrast amongst the white crib and side chair. Two custom wall prints from here and here bring in personal touches, and the seagull one I’ve had my eye on since April.

High Five to all the Mom-to-Be’s,

Irene Lovett

I love using fun paint colors to highlight a wall and add a touch of the unexpected.

Best,

Irene Lovett
