The Lonny Mag Office

Posted in Decor Files, Inspiration, Uncategorized by Miss Circumstance on May 27, 2011

I looove this office. I could so get some smarty-pants stuff done in there. I love seeing beautiful work spaces, especially because I don’t really know how to do it. I love that these look like a well designed room, but are clearly functional work spaces. They also have a mix of high and low- I spot several Ikea pieces in there. But they have mixed it so it doesn’t scream Ikea. It doesn’t even whisper Ikea. They make you want to be in them…..a good goal for an office. Cause let’s face it- how often do you feel like Castanza with a sleeping bag and an alarm clock.?

oooooo, and also- I found out in this months Rue that the foxy design couple from 9 by Design, Cortney and Bob Novogratz, will have another show on HGTV called Home by Novogratz! I’m super stoked on this. I don’t really see any one else on tv doing anything like they do. It’s unique, modern meets vintage, clever and creative, bold yet livable. Come July this will so be on my Tivo.

“We Love You Jenna, Oh Yes We Do….”

Posted in Uncategorized by Miss Pomp on May 20, 2011

“We don’t love anyone, as much as you!”

Anyone? Anyone?  Bye Bye Birdie reference? Get It? Awesome! I knew I wasn’t the only one that watched that movie 87,000 times over the course of my childhood. I digress….

How many of you are in love with Jenna Lyons? I often think, if I could choose ANYONE, I would choose her to be the curator of my closet….

I’m loving the fresh, summery looks J. Crew is styling currently, that all white ensemble looks perfect for a summer day with a tall glass of ice cold lemonade.

Yes please!

I Did It All By Myself….

Posted in Fashion Files by Miss Circumstance on May 19, 2011

well that’s kind of a lie. WE did it all by ourselves. My sis and I. I took my newly educated how-to-shop-in-outfits self  (thanks to Ashley) out shopping with Miss Pomp a couple of weeks ago. Mission: get some stuff that has color and is ready for spring. And get some shirts. I was super low in the shirt department. Dude, guys, I think I did pretty good!

Everything is from H&M and Jcrew. And yes I have a problem saying no to stripes.

Before and After: Chandelier

Posted in Before and After, Circumstance's Home, Decor Files by Miss Circumstance on May 16, 2011

I finally finished this chandelier that I blogged about, oh, like 6 months ago. I pretty much love it. I think I’ll get sick of the color after a while, but for now it’s a fun addition to the kitchen. And no harm no foul since it was given to me by a friend who was about to send it to the Goodwill. Might be a minor foul to the husband who spent about four hours on Mother’s Day trying to change out the wiring and the chain so it would hang at the right height.

Don’t Wear These Pants If…

Otherwise, please do, they are fabulous.

Meet Vivienne

Posted in Decor Files by Miss Circumstance on May 11, 2011

She is my newest edition to my room. She almost got called Fiona, but I think she is much more of a Vivienne, don’t you? Here she is for her close up

She is a Peggy Wolf original, found on Etsy. Peggy has MULTIPLE awesome prints. I would gladly hang several in my house. Check em’ out…

The Power Of A Pillow

Posted in Before and After, Decor Files, Inspiration by Miss Pomp on May 10, 2011

When we first moved into our new house, I was focused on acquiring a number of big pieces – chairs, rugs, a coffee table, curtains for our room so we weren’t blinded by the morning sun at exactly 6:53 every morning. Now that we have most large items in place I have shifted my focus to adding accessories for a bit of color, and to make our home feel more comfortable and, well, home-y.

My most recent addition is these pillows. Miss Circumstance and I picked up the fabric at a local fabric store, and grabbed some $7 Ikea pillow inserts, and voila!  It really is shocking to me what a big difference a pillow can make.
