Fashion Photo Forward

I came across this photo from fashion photographer Nicole Patricia Malina and thought it was just gorgeous. I love the stillness of the photo even though the dresses are moving. The image came from kodex, a "Fashion Business International" site but you can also see some of Nicole's photos at

Cards and Scrapbooks

I'm still sick but back at work and getting a little better everyday. I came across these laser cut "scrolls" that can be used for scrapbooking or card making. I sometimes make my own cards and love things like this to embellish with. I think the size is pretty small but it's hard to tell from the pictures. I saw it on Esty, wonderful site to poke around and get ideas. Also it's just great see how talented some people are!

Domino Pink Rooms

The home page of my tried and trusted favorite magazine and design site Domino has put together a slide show of 50 painted rooms. You can see every color of the rainbow! It's so inspiring. Here are a few of the pink rooms they included. The words below the pictures are stright from the Domino website."For a girl's room that's youthful but still elegant, choose a paint that's feminine but not saccahrine, and then layer pinks with upholstery and accessories. Rose Petal #2010-60"
"A pink and red palette and geometric themes play out in varying scales in the carpet, sheets, and bedside table. The hard lines of the metal bed keep the rosy room from becoming overly sentimental.Bermuda Breeze #1345"

"Bubblegum pink walls hold sway in this feminine, yet refined, bedroom. An ivory rug subdues the walls and understated artwork lends the room some gravitas, downplaying any potential prissiness.Latex Flat in Pink tiger #81RR"

"Pink is unexpected but warm and welcoming in a front entryway; deep-green curtains and retro-fashionable accessories keep the fanciful hue from getting too girly.Regal AquaPink latex in Authentic Pink"

My Affair with Death Cab

I've been listening to the new Death Cab for Cutie album "Narrow Stairs" on repeat for a week now and I still love love love it. Here is the video for "I Will Possess Your Heart". Love this song and the fact that it's 8 minutes long! Oh Death Cab, why have you been away for so long?! It took you so long to make a new album for me but it's here and now our love affair can continue. I will be seeing you soon.....xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Pink Rooms and more Pink Rooms

It was a beautiful weekend in Seattle. But now it's Monday. Back to work and the real world. This is another attempt to clear out the pictures saved on my computer...I'm always a sucker for a pink room.

Pink Bed Daydreams

Wow! It's Friday in Seattle and it going to be a beatuiful day! I've been gone for a while but hopefully more focused and posting more often. I've been having troubles with beds lately. First I need a new bed at home. Two new beds actually. One for the guest room and a new one for our bedroom. Our bed is ancient! and I haven't been sleeping the last few nights. Serious insomnia. Maybe I'll spend the weekend browsing the furniture stores downtown. Second, I can't seem to find a bed when I need one...for napping and other stuff. So I leave you with pictures of beds that I have collected from various sources. Wishing you a very wonderful weekend and a good night of sleep!!!

Product Runway

This last weekend I was involved in a fashion show with outfits made out of interior design materials...everything from stone to carpet to drapes. I was on a team with local design firm, Gensler. They were kind enough to ask me to join their team as a student. We made an Elizabeth inspired cape and coller out of Tandus carpet. The project was time consuming fun and worth it in the end. All of the outfits were amazing! So much work and detail put into it. Did I mention that my team was in the top 6 out of 20! We were happy with that.

Check out Tandus carpet. They are a great sustainable green company and product.

Gensler outfit taking the top 6.

And the winner of the competition was this carpet dress.
