Design details by Amber Interiors

I'm BACK! I had every intention of sneaking in a blog post but I didn't have much time. Who knew going to Disney was so exhausting?? - haha. We had a great time, now I need to catch up on work, life and well unpacking and organizing all of our things!! I'm also catching up on a bit of reading and came across this clean, gorgeous project by Amber Interiors. There are so many interesting interior design details in this house, I just had to share. Building a home from scratch would be my dream, I would most likely design a fairly classic home with modern details. Where I could, I would incorporate large windows and views of the outdoors like this one did. The color palette and natural textiles used are STUNNING. ENJOY!

This kitchen storage cabinet is fabulous too!

I adore this bunk room.

As I type away, I am distracted by the howling wind and large clumps of snow pelting my windows. I am dreaming of far away places and beautiful spaces today and hope to sneak this post in before we potentially lose power and Internet service. My Florida escape can't arrive soon enough, I can only hope our flight does not get canceled tomorrow!! I came across the gorgeous Napa vacation home of Alexis and Trevor Traina's in February's issue of Vogue. It is a one hundred year old retreat filled romantic moments and nostalgic goodies. The Trainas collaborated with Ken Fulk on the project. The grounds are equally as lovely. If you're in the midst of this blizzard too, I hope you stay safe and warm! 
My plan is to check in from Florida with a post or two, we'll see what the week brings. xx

Love the look - what's in my suitcase

Happy Friyay! I have about fifty things on my mind today. We are squeezing in a ski trip this weekend before heading off to Disney for the big "family trip" next week. In between working my butt with my design biz, I have been packing, cleaning, doing laundry, shopping, helping with homework, cooking etc. know the drill. I have this need to feel organized right now (and for good reason).
I'm not going to lie, I don't LOVE tourist traps. So you ask, why Disney? Well, for my kiddos! I think this may be a one and done trip. I am looking forward to it!

I refuse to dress like the pack but I do know comfort is key in the park. Here's a little looksie at a few things in my suitcase!! Any advice on a must bring or do in the park? Feel free to share, share, share your experience with me. xo 

1. Do you have the Spanx leggings? If not, they are a must try. They are great and suck you all in. haha. I sized up. They look fab under a longer sweater or sweatshirt. 
2. Inexpensive but cool sunnies, with my luck they'll fly off on splash mountain. 
3. I'll be honest, I rarely splurge on bathing suits. They get so trashed after a couple of years anyway. Here's the one I bought. 
4. Comfy, broken in tees are a staple in my closet. This J.Crew version looks adorbs with cut offs or white jeans. 
5. I wanted a monochromatic pair of kicks this Spring. Here's the winnerI am all about the retro look. Quick, they seem to be selling out.
6. My favorite Beautycounter sunblock of course. I am pretty obsessive about protecting my skin for a number of reasons and refuse to use brands that are full of chemicals. 
7. Pretty sun dresses. This one is darling. It comes in a neutral shade too. This dress is pretty too!!
8. I am not a huge shorts person but when I do opt to wear them, I go with denim cut offs
9. Slides. I'm loving the ones with some detail such as bows and knots. 
10. A light, comfy cashmere sweater to throw on at night over my tanks. This one is on sale.
11. White jeans!

More Poppy please

Good Afternoon, birdies!! I don't know about you but I am getting pretty sick of the grey days. They seem to be making people grouchy around these parts! I posted my love of Poppy D's style on Monday. Here's a lil peekie at her London home she shares with her equally charming hubby. Be sure to check back tomorrow, I'll be showing you what is in my suit case for Disney. Eeek. (I don't do overly tourist garb well) I can't wait to jet out of here, although I am running around like a chicken this week. All images via: Arch Digest, Photography: Simon Upton

Love the look - Poppy Delevingne

Most of us have fashion icons that we follow and obsess over, at least I do. Today, I'm sharing a favorite. Model, socialite and fashion maven Poppy Delevingne. I even admittedly named my cat after hearing her name about five years back. Her style is often unexpected and bit perfectly imperfect, just the way I like things! Take a peek and then get her look for yourself with a selection of her key pieces. I love her simple hair too.

Get Poppy's look :


and of course a bit of tweed
