{décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock}

While preparing our place for a shoot awhile ago, had remarked, in all seriousness, that the pièce de résistance would be a white peacock, just as in Ryan Korban's New York apartment.  [Often mistakenly referred to as an albino peacock, it is actually a white peacock, and a genetic variant of the Indian Blue Peafowl.]  Either way, it is elegant and exotic, dramatic and undeniably beautiful . . .

{décor inspiration | colour inspiration : shades of plum & sunlight}

. . . things are running at a little slower this week, just as july is fading into august and to summer's end, with quiet mornings filled with hazy light, chintz and wicker and shades of plum and cherry and seashell and linen -- even if it is only for just a short while . . .

. . . first came across Hannah Lemholt's work through Felicity, on flickr, but had not checked in quite some time -- that is -- until a few days ago, when had happened upon some new work on pinterest, and was drawn all over again, to the soft and moody and hazy shades of grey . . .

. . . and because the office today was a precariously balance macbook in the passenger seat of a moving car, and because we have made an unscheduled pitstop and just checked into our hotel, shall keep this short, with a few glimpses of favourite rooms in the atlanta symphony associates’ decorators’ show house & gardens, all dusky blue velvet and leopard print, sky-high ceilings, lucite side tables and tufted chaises . . .

{fashion inspiration | runway : jay ahr resort 2014, paris}

. . . perhaps it is because we are on the road today, but awoke this morning to the sound of birds and sunshine, thinking it to be Saturday . . . But as it is very much still Friday, a little more inspiration before the week is through, in the form of Jay Ahr's recent collection, because am still very much into summer greys and casual luxe, [even being known to wear track bottoms & heels to beach on occasion] -- and so here, an elegant [& sexy] take on workout wear, perfect to lead into the weekend . . .

{décor inspiration | interior designer : nick olsen}

. . . a few site updates to follow, but first, a glimpse into a beautiful beaux arts apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side.  Decorated by Nick Olsen, one-time apprentice to Miles Redd, it is a perfect mix of Kravet silk settees and taffeta curtains, tufted velvet and hand-painted silk wall coverings; and the intermingling of ikats and geometrics, animal prints and chintzes, and best of all, De Gournay and always ultra-chic leopard print carpets by Stark . . .

 {fashion inspiration : ponytails + carousels and pretty looks for day & night}

. . . a warm and romantically overcast late-summer day, and these looks from a past valentino lookbook are inspiring the days and weeks to come -- ruffled blouses and short lacy skirts for the office, trenches for sunday morning markets and bows and tulle and flirty pleats for late, late nights . . .

We interrupt all regularly scheduled programming for the news that everyone is talking about : at 4:24pm today, Will & Kate, Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed a new little prince into the world; weighing 8lbs 6oz. he is third in line to the throne.  And while the world awaits the announcement of the baby's name, a few of the best royal baby photographs to celebrate the occasion . . .

{home you're having a beautiful weekend & a few lovely links}

. . . and it has been a week today that we have been home from paris, and after throwing ourselves back into work for the week, this weekend has been quite the opposite, all sunny afternoon bicycle rides along the coast and drinks on a terrace overlooking the sea; and there have been afternoons drifted away in the gardens, english roses, fizzy sodas and café éclairs; and today, the farmers' market, telephone conversations with family faraway, a sunday dinner and strawberries and macarons . . .

hope you're having a romantic summer weekend, and that it's beautiful where you are, roséline xo

{decor inspiration | endless summer : piacevole soggiorno alfresco, italy}

. . . there are a million tabs open in two browsers and too many unanswered email messages to count, and there is the sudden realisation that a favourite lace dress has been left in a wardrobe of a hotel room in paris last week; but outside, it is beginning to feel like the long, lost and languid days of summer, and who could resist the romantic terrace of an eighteenth-century mill-turned-charming-residence in Friuli in Italy?  Boxwoods and walls of jasmine and roses, pale turquoise cushions on French wrought iron chairs, sun umbrellas and ivy and it's summertime, summertime . . .
