Becca Mann

aren't these paintings by artist Becca Mann lovely? I just love her color choices mixed with the vintage subject matters. They feel like a creepy dream.

movie interiors: the vow

Her studio:

My husband and I went and saw this movie on Valentine's Day (our first cliched v-day ever in 10 years!) and I loved it. It's based on a real couple who had an accident and the wife couldn't remember her husband. So sad, but this movie really is lovely. Especially their apartment and her amazing studio. Seriously, I want to move in right now. Having that fantastic studio just a few doors down from your loft? My favorite part is the giant inspiration wall and those glorious white flat files. I have a giant metal one I got at a school sale, but what I wouldn't give for a smaller wood set.

The kitchen is near perfect. Not too big, not too small with a little island and a vintage schoolhouse clock on the side of the white cabinets. Not to mention those fabulous light fixtures. If I could take one small detail though it would be those wood shelves with the metal cage sliding doors. They fit so perfectly in this space. This is a favorite movie interior for sure.

Rachel Niffenegger

Loving these works by artist Rachel Niffenegger. Her work is so apocolyptic yet incredible beautiful and pretty. It's full of decay and explosive elements yet the bright cheery colors and delicate subjects (such as the flower fabric pieces) create the perfect juxtaposition between the sweet and the dreary. Just beautiful.

restoration hardware

to be honest, I had kind of forgotten about restoration hardware. That is until I found their most recent stock catalogue at my parent's house a few weeks ago. They have so many amazing new things now! My favorite has to be all of the lighting fixtures. I would love to have a place to hang the vintage birdcage chandelier. I have been looking for some small pendants to replace the ugly blue ones that hang over our breakfast bar and those milk glass ones are heavenly...
