KELLY WEARSTLER AND A BEL AIR MANSION

I don't know why I am just finding this article now, as it was done in 2013, but hey never too late to fall in love with some Kelly Wearstler. Architectural Digest featured this home, well mansion in my eyes, designed by the fabulous KW and I am in love. Here are my favorite rooms, but check out the article here






that black and white spiral striped rug is just amazing, and believe it or not those solid pink leather chairs calms the rug down!



Gold leafed wood paneling, um yes please!

INSTAGRAM FAVS - EDITION ONE

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I am completely obsessed with Instagram. More so than any other social media platform. And it's not even the fact that you can put filters on pictures, I just like the instant gratification from scrolling though my feed and seeing photos. I favorite instagrams like a crazy person, so I figured across several posts I would share with you my favorites. Be sure to follow me along with all these wonderful instagramers you'll see below...

I'm obsessed with Scout Design Studio as you will see below. They find the best pieces possible and if I could afford to I would buy out all their inventory! Be-still my heart these reupholstered channel back chairs.

BEST LOOKING BOSTON RESTAURANTS

Let's just ignore the fact I haven't been blogging AT ALL and move on with the good stuff. I love Boston! I really do think it's one of the best cities in the US. Although I am biased, I do love it more than (gasp!) NYC. There's just something so special about it, our sports, it's nook and crannies, its history, and just that "at home" feeling you get when you're in town.
One thing that rivals us against a lot of cities are our restaurants. I mean we have Amazing restaurants and so many of them! So I thought we could take a look at some and see how beautiful their interiors are...

Banq is unfortunately no longer open but can you believe that woodwork?



Bond at The Langham. So Beautiful and totally my style


Cinquecento...


My favorite favorite restaurant, Gaslight (which has also been shot in many movies...



 Legal Crossing (photo by flagshipphoto.com)...




Lincoln Tavern...


Post 390...


Sorellina...


Towne...



Trade (photos by flagshipphoto.com)...




Although technically this new restaurant, The Bancroft, is not in town but in the suburbs, I had to include it. Definitely one of my favs!

A MUST READ

Just had to quickly share this recent post from A Storied Style about an apartment in Paris that was discovered in 2010, untouched since the 40's...It's pretty amazing. If they do turn it into a museum I will definitely have to get there sometime! Happy Reading :)

TO DO LIST

Lots to do around the house...so let's get started...A To Do List

LIVING ROOM / DINING NOOK

need to purchase (eventually)...

STOCKHOLM Rug, flatwoven IKEA The durable, soil-resistant wool surface makes this rug perfect in your living room or under your dining table.

The high gloss black shelves need to be installed. Going for something like this:

I love the simplicity of these shelves, particularly because they aren't too thick . I have a nook just like it next to the dining table, so that's where they will be going.

Still want these dining room chairs:

Our Dining Nook is so tiny and basically just in our living room, so these are still are the best option to not make the living room look over crowded.

BATHROOMS

Both bathroom are getting some black paint. The half bath has white tile going halfway up the wall so it won't be too much paint. As for the master bath I haven't decided yet if I am just painting behind the toilet with floating shelves in front or I will paint the whole thing...we will see

MASTER BEDROOM

We need a new bed, and bed frame, which with the help of my bestie and design partner in crime Kristen, it will be a DIY project. Most likely hoping to use this fabric:



Hopefully I will be able to get the black shelves up this weekend in the living room/dining room so I can share them with you next week!
