ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 10.25

miles redd entryway

In any home that’s large enough to offer it, there should be one room that’s purely magical. This could mean many things to many people – it could be dark and enveloping with layers of textiles, or bright and welcoming, sparkling with metallics.  Or, it could be this. A ‘tented’ entry decorated with chinoiserie style, […]

MOODY MORNINGS…

ruscoe_splendour_4-591x800

Lately, we’ve been having these moody, foggy mornings in Seattle, which is making my aesthetic shift from summer right into fall. From an editorial standpoint, it’s hard not to always be thinking a month or two ahead. In fact, today we’re shooting some gorgeous autumn looks for the blog, and discussing plans for fashion week, […]

    We’ve been having a few hours of fog every day here in Victoria, too. I absolutely love the fog … so mysterious. The pictures of the home shot by Prue Ruscoe are gorgeous. I could be very, very happy in that house.

    And fall … well, I can hardly wait for it to arrive!

    I completely agree! These cool rainy mornings make me crave pumpkin spice lattes and soft knit scarves and damp orange leaves! Bring on the fall- I’m ready!

ROOM OF THE WEEK 5.9

It’s been a while since I’ve featured an all-out glam space around here, and it’s high time, don’t you think? What I didn’t expect is for the ‘space’ to be a hallway… Or maybe I should say, stairwell and landing. That makes it sound better, doesn’t it? Not that it needs any help, because this […]

    That gold chandelier is crazzzy beautiful! Was totally inspired by it! I’d love to get one for the wedding event I am planning in Brisbane, the color theme is white, blue and gold!

    I find the room appears cluttered and doesn’t seem to flow. My eyes can not scan the room easily.

PROUD IN THE PNW

julie harmsen hens&chicks rue mag

Up in my little corner of the states, we Pacific Northwesters tend to get lost in many ways. In sports. In the design scene. In fashion. But, slowly, that’s been changing. I’ve seen my city (Seattle) start to evolve in the past couple of years. From a city I felt stuck in to a city […]

    i live in the midwest but absolutely LOVE the PNW. my uncle lives in portland and i spent many happy summers as a girl driving around washington and oregon in his VW van listening to weezer and camping {two of my favorite places i remember were crater lake and the columbia river gorge}. such a gorgeous area of our country!

    “I’ve seen my city (Seattle) start to evolve in the past couple of years. From a city I felt stuck in to a city that I may never want to leave.”

    I feel exactly the same way! I’ve been here three years and while I’m not 100% I’ll be here forever, there’s progressively less ‘faking it’ and much more ‘making it’ when I tell people about how great it is where I live.

    Hooray for the PNW coming into its own :)

    Hi Cassandra

    Please can you tell me who the artwork is by in the last shot?

    Many thanks

    Thank you for this entry! I have been following your blog this past year, and it always inspires me with your great taste in design, fashion, and more. I left my lovely Seattle right after college to live in NYC and work in fashion, and have just decided to move back with my fiance this summer after 8 years out East. It’s been a bit scary and emotional to wrap my head around coming home, but this piece you wrote reminded me of all the reasons to live in such a beautiful place. I can’t wait to re-discover this place, and I so appreciate your words about the creative world that exists back home. Thank you for this!!

IN THE DETAILS :: FOR THE NEXT PLACE…

coco+kelley in the details curtains in the hall

Lately I’ve been dreaming of relocating to a new apartment… something with a little more space and character, and above all, some higher ceilings! And when I do, I have a feeling these details may get incorporated… I have a mild obsession with sheer window panels. I love the way they filter sunlight (when we […]

    Love this post; particularly the sheer window panels. They look beautiful breaking up the space in the long hall and I’ve seen them hung on either side of the bed to create a cozy feeling. Beautiful.

    i hear you girl! our apartment right now is totally temporary and has absolutely zero character. i cannot wait to relocate to a more permanent place {preferably with wood floors, original crown molding, multiple fireplaces, tall ceilings, and lots of windows}. :)
