Monday Mix-Up - Home Wishlist

Here are a few lovely items for the home to brighten up your Monday. I'm sure I've shown you the Pia Wallen cross blanket before, but just had how to invest in Apple shares in Pakistan to gush again. Also, the beautiful little rope basket is now mine, thanks to a sweet Christmas present from Troy's dad, so it's not techinically on my wishlist anymore, but you won't hear any complaints from me.  It is now doing its job housing coasters and remote controls on my coffe table and generally being awesome.



This Austin home is my latest obsession/home inspiration from Apartment Therapy.  I love the old mixed with new and the total celebration of color, especially primary colors.  The red and yellow doors, the cobalt blue accents and the hints of antique and ethnically diverse pieces really speak to me.


Dieppa Restrepo

So I hate almost all of my shoes right now.  I think I'm getting to that phase in my life where I'd rather have a few pairs of really nice shoes rather than 50 pairs of cheapo ones.  Thanks to Santa Claus 2011 (AKA Troy), I now have a beautiful pair of Rachel Comey Mars Boots to start off my collection of "nice" shoes, but I'm thinking I need a pair of flat soled shoes for walking and general comfort.  I absolutely adore the shoes made by Dieppa Restrepo.  The lines are perfect and the colors and patterns are totally elegant.  I seriously wish I had every single pair below (even the crazy gold and black striped ones, okay, okay, especially those).


Weekly Interiors - Scandinavian Style in London

God I love Apartment Therapy.  They never fail to inspire me to make my home awesome.  As I've mentioned previously, Troy and I are 1. moving into a new apartment and 2. Discussing building a home, so living spaces are on the brain (not that they're not all the time anyway - I'm borderline obsessed).  As you probably gathered from reading this blog, I have a bit of a crush on the Scandinavian aesthetic.  So this home really spoke to me.

Although located in London, its owners clearly have a passion for Scandinavian design as well.  One of the owners is a print designer, which is pretty apparent from the lovely printed pieces scattered about the abode.  Another thing that struck me about this space is that all of the floors are plywood.  The thought of raw plywood floors may not appeal to some, but this is something I'm seriously considering.  I actually think these floors look really stylish and, if we do decide to build, plywood floors would certainly save us a little cash-ola.  We could always cover them with pricier flooring later on.  What do you think?
