Hey kids, I went and did something really annoying: I moved to wordpress. It's the same exact blog, just with its own URL and all that jazz. If you'd like to continue following along, please update your readers to this:

Thanks and I hope you make the switch!

doors of orange

I was going through my honeymoon pictures again tonight and noticed a recurring theme in entrances of hotels in Palm Springs.



Why hello, glossy orange! I think it means something.

P.S. I want all of that hardware.

just in time: orange

A coral-neon-orange is my proposed accent color for the living room and apparently, I'm so very on trend. It's nice when the world manages to recognize my creative genius.

charade color board

I'm a pretty lousy blogger -- I don't plan out my posts like I should, so when I promise something like showing pictures of my living room and then we go and buy a car and get fined a boatload of money for having an illegal cat in our apartment, I can't actually provide said pictures of my living room.

So instead I have a color board based on the movie Charade. We watched last night as part of date night and I couldn't help but be completely in love with Audrey Hepburn and her Givenchy wardrobe. All of her jewel tone coats were amazing, as were the elbow length gloves and that impossible chignon of hers.

Apparently I'm not alone. A friend sent me an Amazon listing for Le Creuset replacement knobs. Let's take a closer look at it:


We've found the culinary equivalent of putting a Mercedes badge on your Honda Civic.
