Well I planned on taking about a week and a half off, but the universe had other plans. After a week long bronchial infection (that I wrongly assumed was allergies) and a week of getting the house ready (it goes on the market next weekend!), I ended up taking about a 3 week unplanned blogging break. I'm back now, and ready to hit it hard...
I've always loved H&M's clothing options...I feel like it's the Forever 21 for people over the age of 21. When I found out they had a home line, I knew it would be nothing short of amazing....and I was right. Everything is so well priced and they have things from every spectra of the design world. Check it out for yourself:

What do you think? Are you as enamored as me? What are your go to "cheap" decor stops?

The New Coastal Threshold Line...

Target you sly biotch....You've done it again. 
Your Threshold line has pulled at my heartstrings for some time, but this new summer/coastal line is seriously at the top of my list. With my impending vacation, I've been dreaming of the beach, so all of these coastal accessories are right up my alley...
Untitled #25

Is it weird to hoard things for a future beach house that you can in no way afford at this current time?....I don't think so.
I couldn't leave this shopping trip completely empty handed...
I mean what if Target's everywhere burnt to the ground that night and I never had another chance to buy a piece of the Threshold coastal line? 
So with that indisputable logic in mind, I left with this Threshold frame:

On sale nonetheless....I've been feeling like my living room was too "model homeish" #technical term. So I thought the rustic wood in this frame might add some soul to my very contemporary Expedit bookcase...and I was right. 

How about you? Do you love the Threshold line as much as me? Any other hoarders out there?
Oh and just a reminder, I will be on vacation the next week or so, so it may be quiet around here for a few days....forgive me....or don't, I'll be on vacation so I really don't care ;)

McDreamy's Dreamy Home...

Jillian and Patrick Dempsey's (you all know him as Dr. Derek Shepherd from Grey's, I know him as Ronald Miller from Can't Buy Me Love and Robert from Enchanted) 5000 square foot Frank Gehry home in Malibu is nothing short of Amazing. Sitting on five acres, shaded entirely by olive trees, this house oozes charm, casual coziness, and a natural, textural wonderland. 

The large palm (if you follow me on Instagram you know I love a good palm tree) and daybed greet you at the front of the property.

I love the comfortable dining space they created with a banquette and 4 large chairs.
Those green chaises had me at hello.
The living room is probably my favorite space. I could talk about the wood wall installation for seriously try me.
The bright and industrial kitchen is open to the rest of the home and I absolutely love the rustic island, that adds soul to a mostly commercial kitchen. And how cute is the chalkboard wall, that Jillian was inspired to do from Pinterest (yes, even the stars use Pinterest). 
And if they weren't adorable enough, this small Airstream trailer sits on the back of their property and is used for date nights for the couple....I mean, seriously....gush.

What do you think? Is anyone else as enamored by this home as me?
