I thought today I'd share some favorite links. I LOVE finding new things on other blogs and thought I should do more of the same here on Affordable Luxury.
So, I'm going to try hard to post more links that I love, be it food, design, fashion, travel, you name it!
And, please don't hesitate to share yours---let the goodness go 'round!
LINKS I'M LOVING:
1) KALE CHIPS--folks... my kids are actually ASKING for this as their snack. I'm going through bags of kale every week!
This recipe that has different variations so you can mix it up.. Hands down winner and you can eat as much as you want!
2) Just boughtthese shoes.. Think they will go great with shorts and maxi dresses when I need to look professional and still be comfortable walking around the city. Haven't arrived yet.. am hoping they are fab!
3)CHAIRS--so I've mentioned this photoshoot.. I'm spending a ton of time trying to update spaces in my house.. feeling a bit overwhelmed because I feel like every room is half done.. Anyone with me here?
I LOVE these chairs.. the original Kartell chairs are too much since I need 8. Am thinking I'll go for it and use in my kitchen.
So I know I've shown you design boards for my master bedroom, so today I wanted to just share a sneak peek of my nightstand! (If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen this photo. FB fans get some early sneak peeks)
I'm still working on things for a photo shoot, but thought I'd at least share this!
I don't know about you, but I'm at home today with my daughters because we have a blizzard here in Virginia. Snow has drifted on our deck over a foot high!
I hope you are staying toasty and warm!
Here's a gorgeous room I came across by Caldwell Flake Interiors and wanted to share. I love how modern, light and bright it is.
I would actually love to have that table in my breakfast and I've already begun looking for one similar. The use of the bench with the two different types of chairs works here because they kept the color the same throughout.
In addition to all my projects, I'm working on my own home in anticipation of a photo shoot for another blog and am super excited!
I can't spill the beans yet, but needless to say, I'm feverishly finishing up my master bedroom (can't WAIT to show you!) and as part of this process I'm refurbishing my mom's 30+ year old cane chairs. I'm having them painted and re-upholstered. Paint will likely be white and upholstery will be leopard! No surprise there!!
Today, I'm sharing you some great examples of cane chairs, like my mom's (thank you Mom!) that have been re-done to FABULOUS-NESS!
Happy Friday! Wanted to share with you today the color combo of navy, lime green and white. I'm currently helping a client update her living room with accessories and this is the color scheme we came up with. I say tres chic!
Good morning! You all know me..I love white, so when I came across this beautiful light-filled white room, I fell in love. It's interesting because this room has the large ottoman and then 2 medium sized ones adjacent to it!
I am super excited to share with you today's blog post with you!
I've teamed up with my fellow designer friend Fanny Zigdon of Home On The Runway, a fantastic fashion-infused design blog that you have to check out! Her great features coupled with her design eye, make this blog one you will be reading daily!
Fanny and I met as part of Home & Design Magazine's "HOT Talent" designer feature last summer which showcased 7 local, up-and-coming Washington, D.C. interior designers.
Perhaps it was our love of leopard, or that our birthdays are within weeks of each other, but nonetheless, we are excited to team up to start sharing with you a MONTHLY STYLING SERIES we'll be working on together that will be original, eye-catching, and hopefully inspirational to you!
This month we are kicking off the series with our Valentine's Day tablescape which we created using items you may already have at home as well as affordable finds we picked out at our local Target and HomeGoods and Z Gallerie stores.
We hope you enjoy!
