Monday's Are For...Online Shopping

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend. I had a great, relaxing visit to Mississippi but unfortunately came down with something that I still can't shake. So needless to say I wish I was here.....Or here....
It is back to work time though and since it is "Cyber Monday" I know a lot of people will shopping from work. My online shopping started early when I stumbled across FCL Style the other day and I loved everything I saw. Of course I knew I was in for some good finds when the categories were divided into Bohemian, Classique, Creme Fraiche, Country Chic, Naturelle. Here are just a few items that caught my eye...

What are you shopping for today?

Quiet Time- Remembering The Season

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

I LOVE Christmas. I love the decorations, the parties, the shopping, all of it. It is easy for me to forget the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Going into this season I am going to try to keep my focus on what is important, good thing God is patient and loving because I need a lot of help.

A Bright Idea

These switches from Forbes & Lomax are divine. The details in rooms are so important, they can really make all the difference. Put these on my list for things to know, for my "one day" house.....

My New Favorite House- Of All Time

I am head over heels in love. I know I use the word LOVE way to frequently, but I am about to break my record for a single word appearance in one post. I usually don't scan in whole homes for several reasons but when I saw the home of Jill Sharp Brinson, creative director for Ballard Designs, I couldn't help myself. I know my tastes can be fickle, but this house is definitely my new favorite. Shall we take a tour? (sorry the scan quality is less than stellar)I love the styling in the first photo, love. Below-the pop of color, the side lamp, the lantern, the staircase, the beams, the bookshelves at the top, love love love.
"Oyster shell and steel gray with a lot of truffle, that's my palette", is that someone after my own heart or what? Obsessed with these cabinets.

The window casing, shelf above the door, marble top on the
This about put me over the edge. The walls are upholstered in a crewel fabric....I may have to drive to Atlanta, knock on her door and shamelessly invite myself in.
I will admit, I did have a vision of having to lint roll the walls constantly due to Harry, the most shedding dog in the world, but she has dogs so I feel better now.

The ceiling, the window hardware, LOVEEEEEE the tub, the chair, the mirrored cabinet, the head is spinning.
This house is in the December/January House Beautiful. You MUST buy a copy, there is no way to appreciate the fabulousness of this house without studying it in print. Did I mention I love it?

Statement Making Walls

My love for wallpaper is no secret, so when I was on Elle Decor looking for something else and I came across the Bold Walls article I was immediately distracted. Here are some of the fabulous images....
This one stopped me in my tracks- it is subtle, yet shiny, feminine and soft but also bold and strong....

Now I have to decided what room do I want to wallpaper....
