A bit of decor...

It's a busy week again for this designer so here's a quick bit of decor that is uber cool!  Somehow, someone actually designed folding chairs that look really good!   I love these awesome pantone chairs!

Bridal Blogs

Oh, how I am addicted to blogs! And since my job (obviously) involves the wedding industry, I spend not just a little time staying current with trends by following several wedding blogs. Yesterday I had a meeting with a new client who is ordering four customized versions of the Katy Scarlet hair fascinator for members of her bridal party. As we sipped our coffee we got to talking about our favorite wedding blogs. Usually I feel like I'm aware of what's out there but she told me about one of her favorites, which I had never heard of. Off course I checked it out when I got home! It's The Bride's Cafe and it's pretty good! I haven't dug into it extensively yet (hey, I do have real work to do, ya know!) one of it's featured "real weddings" really caught my eye! Hmmm... perhaps it's the unmistakable 1960's Mad Men look to it? Actually I think it's a super amazing engagement shoot. How they got access to that plane I'll never know, but here are some highlights below!

I want a new apartment!

As some of you might know from an earlier post the hubby and I are keeping our eyes pealed for a new apartment.  We've decided that when "the right place" comes along, we're going to break our lease (bite the bullet & pay the fee) and go for it!  We recently viewed what could have been out perfect new apartment but due to stiff competition it was given to an applicant who beat us to the punch.  I'm still a little bummed knowing that my chances of finding another place with a bathroom skylight is slim to none, but there was one good thing to come out of the experience.  I said my emotional goodbyes to our current home.  It was the first time in all the browsing that we would've actually moved and it forced me to confront my mixed feelings about leaving what has been a wonderful place for us for the past 2 and a half years.  But despite all the good vibes one thing trumps it all: I crave more space!!!   I'm beginning to feel slightly claustrophobic in our 1BR place and the fact that two people in the kitchen is one person too many is getting on my nerves.   And most of all, I want an office!  I've been working from home full-time for over a year now and the better business is, the more my works seems to spread into the rest of the apartment.  I've begun collecting images of my fantasy apartment. Completely unrealistic but hey, that's why it's a fantasy.  I know, I know.  I'm such a nerd.
