I love the panel in the window. So simple, but it's like a work of art. You have a beautiful blog!

I never would have thought to put a ladder in a bathroom. So inspiring!

I like that handbag picture. Maybe I should do that at home, instead of hanging them in a clump behind my closet door. That way even the infrequently used ones get a little love!

I'm in the midst of completely redoing the bedroom but now it seems like the bath has to be next too! Love clawfoot tubs but it'll never fit..

I was obsessed with that Pearl Lowe spread in the times magazine. I kept it and have used it as inspiration for redecorating my home. Love love love.

I love that bathroom. My mother once made a wall of bags, but hers really didn't look half as cute as this one.
