I’m in such awe of these eclectic and special rooms found via D*S’ Sneak Peak of Myriam Balay-Devidal. From the beautiful mix of color and textiles to the homemade dangling lamps and lack of tidy sterility, it’s just perfect! This one’s going into my future home inspiration vault!

It’s a beautiful winter’s weekend filled with fun packed little details, including shopping in the city, funny-bad dumpling noodle soup, a grocery shop ignored, and instead a beer drank. Etc.
We just got back from walking our dog to my favorite spot, the Williamsburg pier. Do you have any favorite walking spots? I’d love to know about them. Well it’s time for dinner so I’ll leave you with a few links from around the web:
We went to eat a yummy Brooklyn brunch here.
Dying over these bed linens.
The cutest framed artwork.
Settling down with Netflix tonight to watch this movie.

I would love to recreate this kind of miss-matchy framed mess (via west elm)… especially love the frames on a string. Of course it couldn’t hurt to have those iron and white washed brick wall details to compliment the look.
Today I noticed a growing trend of FREE BOOKS tucked in boxes left on the streets of Manhattan. It was after I read this article about trading in all your possessions and going completely digital. I consider myself to be a huge minimalist – to the point where I need to remember how to keep a place warm and cozy, yet my book collection is still growing. I snagged a few books and now it’s time to expand the wine-crate shelf space… or figure out something else. Something like this maybe? Minimal AND warm! Photos via apartment diet.
While I’m gearing up for our huge move back to the states in a couple of months, I’m also eyeing home decor everywhere. Since we’re looking to buy an apartment all I can think of is: new start, new home, new color, new warmth. My favorite nearby restaurant, called Puah, has the most beautiful eclectic decor. Each table, table cloth, plate and glass is unique and vintage. It’s styled down to the flower vase, knife and fork. I have to take pictures next time we go because I think that place will be my inspiration.
I regrettably didn’t do anything nice with our apartment here in the Middle East. It’s quite pretty on it’s own too… has very unique old sliding eastern doors, a great new kitchen and creamy tones all over. For our next place, I plan to add tons of color and warmth; maybe starting with this floral, smear-dyed duvet cover & sham set. But I’m a sucker for any pretty bed linens.
