{pretty on the inside}

Perfume bottles, shimmery powders, necklaces, silk throw cushions and shoes are overtaking the place, resulting in thoughts of Spring cleaning, and since my favourite tailored linen pants have disappeared, it may be time to explore the fashion abyss in the farthest corners of the closet . . .

. . . although am rather inspired {and a little tempted} to hide everything behind yards and yards of soft and beautifully patterned curtains . . .

I smiled when I read about the favorite linen pants 'disappeared' - that has happened to me too!

I love the feeling of a cleaned home ... I just did a makeover of my own shoe storage area (I had them stored in many not-so-nice boxes) - now I bought a new cupboard from IKEA: here and here

Completely perfect as usual! I know that feeling of everything starting to take over---though my mess doesn't look nearly as romantic as these pics here!

Gorgeous photos, so romantic. I love the idea of mismatched and breezy curtains to contain a messy closet although I need doors to stop anything from spilling out..I'm a bit unorganized at the moment!

Thanks also for the Louboutin link – what fun it must have been to attend such an event and have your shoes signed!

I love all that pretty fabric, hanging in front of the clothes and all of the bedding. Such delicious color combos.

I also think I need a seashell in my medicine cabinet now.
