Lately I have really been lovin' the mid-century look. I love how simple the lines are, and how it can be fused with basically any style. The Museum of Modern Art has an interior design exhibit that features mid-century furniture and really sparked my interest. Then I also love Emily Henderson's design style on Secrets of a Stylist (HGTV) and feel like she has mastered the eclectic mid-century look. If I can't have one of several beautiful Eames chairs, than I will settle on a mid-century style coffee table or TV hutch/stand. In the meantime, enjoy the inspirations.

I have been a MAJOR slacker in the blogging world the last few months. My family and I have been in DC and now NYC for the summer. (We are in business school remember so we have a summer internship in between the 1st and 2nd year....our stuff is all sitting in our Berkeley apartment so we are basically living out of suitcases). With all of the moving around, juggling 2 little kids mostly by myself while my husband works long hours and only having my husband's laptop available, blogging just isn't top priority or easily accessible. So, I am going to start back slowly.
I also think that I haven't been too wowed by things lately. I love the industrial look, indian block printed fabric and everything else that is hot right now, but I feel like I have seen it all before in the blogging world.
But, I was flipping through this month's Elle Decor and fell in love with a few items:
Blow Light chandelier by Lindsey Adams Adelman
So feminine and glam but not too over the top.
The Watson Table by Brooklyn-based Paul Loebach
I've never seem legs like that before. Amazing.
Blaplumb Scandenavian Rug by Maas-Fjetterstsrom, 1937.
Just some little diddies to inspire you (hopefully). And I promise that the next post will not be so far away!!!
