GUESS WHAT COLOR I PAINTED MY FRONT DOOR?

Take a wild guess. Need some more hints? Ha. Predictable. I know. I just love me some yellow! I'm totally fitting right in in New Orleans! The photo above is my living room. We have rugs and plants and nothing else. Well, there's a sofa but it's not that pretty. That West Elm dresser doesn't even belong there. I schlepped it out of the bedroom so I can have something for this shot. I'm purging all of Ryan's things. He kinda hates me right now but I know he'll appreciate me later for what I'll do to the place.

CURRENTLY COVETING KITCHENS WITHOUT CABINETS



You guys are probably wondering, "What do you mean? No cabinets in the kitchen!?"Have I lost my mind? Let me explain. I mean no upper cabinets. Like, just a full backsplash or open shelving. It really opens up the space and showcases those beautiful subway tiles or some beautiful collection of ceramics. I know it's hard to give up storage but if you purge a little, like toss out some of those mismatched plates, cups, and oh my god, how about cleaning out the seasoning cabinet. You know what I mean. 10 different brands of paprika, basil or some seafood seasoning. When did hoarding spices become a thing? I don't know about you but I'm gonna consolidate that mess after I finish with this post. Ha. Anyway, I am loving all these kitchens without (upper) cabinets. You feel me?

JUKEBOX 18 • WEDDING SONGS


October has turned into a month of weddings for me. I went to two. And now, I can't stop thinking about my own wedding. Just to clarify, I'm not engaged. But Ryan and I do bring up marriage from time to time and we say silly things, like, our wedding. I actually created a wedding playlist a year ago and I even have a rough guest list. So far it's about 60 people on my side. I'm thinking 100 guests, at a house with a beautiful, lush backyard. Nothing too formal but still fancy. I mean, I'm gonna have wardrobe changes. Three times at least. Ha! Ha! Here are ten lovely songs that will probably be played at my wedding. Any sweet suggestions?



Sam Cooke • Nothing Can Change This Love
Rilo Kiley • I Never
Wilco • You And I
Feist • Mushaboom
Talking Heads • This Must Be The Place
Aretha Franklin • You Send Me
Al Green • I'm Still In Love With You
Sarah Mclachlan • Ice Cream
Death Cab For Cutie • I Will Follow You Into The Dark
Cat Power • Sea Of Love

FLEETING MOMENTS


Justina's fall soiree for eBay. I was part of their holiday commercial which I'm dying to see!




Then, I flew up to San Francisco and met up with Ryan for his friend's beautiful wedding in Santa Rosa.

THRIFT OR TREAT • HALLOWEEN TABLE SETTING


Yesterday, I photographed Justina's elegant and spooky Halloween table setting. I don't I've ever seen a Halloween table look this good! Hop on over to see the whole thing and see how she made all this from thrifty finds at Savers thrift store.
