New York props stylist Lili Diallo has such an amazing eye, I loved her work in Domino magazine and can’t wait until her new book releases at the end of the year. Have you heard of her? If not, you’ll be happy for the introduction after seeing a few views from her online portfolio…
I caught a peek of her upcoming book on Amazon — it is being published by Clarkson Potter and is called Details: A Stylist’s Secrets to Creating Inspired Interiors. It looks quite juicy — I love the idea of a stylist sharing her secrets in a book! I imagine that so many will really feel inspired after seeing beautiful rooms and reading her tips and inspirations throughout. How can you not be!? Below is a shot of the cover, stay tuned for a review once I get my hands on a copy later this year. I can’t wait to share more!
I’m really looking forward to this book and Lili’s take on interior styling and hope that if you have time today that you’ll pop over to her website to see more of her work. Enjoy!

I adore the new coin purses from Alphabet Bags, they are so sweet! Each has been screen printed with black ink onto natural white cotton so there is a vintage look to them, especially with the clasp! I also like the black trim and that each purse has been laminated to protect from stains and marks.
Wouldn’t the coin purses look cute displayed in a shadow box — you could have four boxes with four purses to spell something and mount them on the wall over your dressing table or dresser. That would be quirky and sweet! Alphabet bags has totes too as you can see above. Old Bag is my favorite – ha ha ha! Hayley & Lucas did such a sweet job on this collection — congrats you two!

I wrote about Finnish photographer Krista Keltanen today over at Real Simple, I do hope you can take a moment to check that out because I think that you may really enjoy her soft, romantic photography.
Most of the beautiful work shown above can be purchased as prints or greeting cards in her etsy shop if you’d like to put one in your home. She also has a website that is very inspirational to look at and a pretty blog as well. Enjoy!

Hello and happy new week to you! I hope that you have been doing well, enjoying summer, and that you had a nice weekend! After returning from a week in Denmark (and a fun day in Sweden!), I returned home to attend a music festival and have been quite busy with my friends and family as I missed them all very much when I was away. The weather has been positively sublime, for you too? Summer is such a nice season!
Today I went to an outlet sale around the corner from my house — a bunch of stores locally well selling their overstock so there were many great products that were 50-70% off. One of my favorite shops, Von Klein Auf, had lots of beautiful things which made me wish I had a child because I found so many adorable dresses and things. Maybe next year I can buy them. :) I found an adorable patchwork bear from Room Seven (a Dutch brand I’d not heard of until today) and a pencil holder from Danish company GreenGate. I decided that, like I did when I was engaged, that I would start a small “hope chest” and fill it with cute things for my future child. I’m not pregnant yet, but I’m hoping to be next year and so I figured that I will start with this bear to build up a very small collection of sweet things. If I do not have kids, then I have a small chest for the kids of my friends to go through and play with while they are visiting. Either way, these sweet things will be used and enjoyed. Before you had a child or got married, did you start a hope chest? I know that it is old fashioned of me, but it is quite fun and inspiring.
Room Seven (they have a US and an EU website) is a brand for kids owned and operated by Brecht Olsthoorn that specializes in clothing, bedding, bags and some soft toys. Brecht is the daughter of the founders and owners of the Dutch brand OILILY and established Room Seven in 1994 initially designing only a bedding and accessories line but after her first child she branched out into children’s clothing as well.
Aren’t these things sweet? I love the green and blue walls – that acid-y green is such an inspiring color choice for a room, you have to be quite bold to use it but I like it very much!
