Feeling fall inspired in a Nate Berkus for Target kind of way

I mean we all are planning for our holiday tablescapes, right? Don't make me feel weird here as a party of one. So I know this isn't going to come as a surprise to any of you, but I am all about an unconventional holiday tablescape. Don't give me any of that cornucopia and rustic color scheme. Give me color, funky pattern mixing and glamorous accents. So thankfully my man Nate Berkus is doing his thing, as always, this holiday season for Target and he is making a major appearance at all of my seasonal soirees. 

Nate is bringing his flair and attention to detail to his latest collection. I am talking jewel inspired accouterments. gilded adornment, regal patterns and just plain glamour. I am telling you people, this will be stuff that will carry me into the holidays for many years to come. Just check out how I see my table for Thanksgiving this year. Traditional? Not so much. But with mixing jewel tones, patterns and metals, I have Nate Berkus to give thanks to.

My Must Haves

We all know I have an addiction to shopping, and I may be preaching to the choir here, but I generally have a running list of everything that I "need" in my life. No. Seriously. Each and every one of the items are necessities for life survival. You know that I wouldn't be that frivolous or ostentatious. Some home decor, some body decor...whichever it may adorn, they are my must haves at this very moment and are soon to be yours.  Yours Truly, The Shopaholic

Monday Musings: LC's Apartment in InStyle

My people. What is up? So this is the first week I will not be traveling in like forever. So you will see MUCH, MUCH more of me. Hopefully that is a good thing? My week is off to an amazing start. I slept through the gym this morning and I am dreading being in the office. Someone has a case of the Monday's... Someone pump me up for the Monday morning grind puh-lease. We can do this Monday. Yes we can.

So I was scouring the worldwide interweb this weekend for some serious inspiration and I happened to come across the home of my all time favorite Laguna Beach alum. Can you guess who it is? Team LC. Holler. So LC finally found her prince charming (Spoiler alert: No, it is not Steven Colletti, and no, it is not Jason Wahler) and their sophisticated home was recently featured in InStyle. I mean the place is to die for y'all. LC is clearly dunzo with Laguna and has planted her fancy ass smack dab in Beverly Hills. Would you expect anything less? The girl has amazing style which has translated into her grown up home. White walls, major pops of color, tufted furniture, an elaborate bar situation and a closet that would make Carrie Bradshaw envious. Check it.

Monday Musings: Tassels

Ladies, ladies, ladies. How in the hell are ya? Did you have a fabulous weekend? Candy (ahem and booze) overload? Yametoo. I need some serious weekends that consist of more than two days. Cha feel? Lord. While I am coming at you with an extra hour of sleep today, I have to tell you I am dreading this Monday morning like woah. "Is it Friday yet" is the chant that is on constant repeat in my head. This will make for a long week...

Today I am chatting about something that is oh so near and dear to my heart. Tassels. I know what you are thinking, and get your mind out of the gutter. Not those kind of tassels, ladies. Home decor tassels. I have been slightly on the fence in incorporating tassels into my decor, simply because I am Stella (my dawg) fearing. I cannot imagine the duress I would endure if in one of her fits (where she is trying to teach me a lesson), she decided to go to town on my beloved tassels. But we have struck a deal, and its been decided that we need some tassels up in this abode. I am talking on curtains, couches and pillows. Any and everywhere. Look at all of this lovely inspiration that illustrates what is happening in my brain this very moment.

And the ultimate inspiration, that sparks all inspiration. This here camel. Can I just get this guy for my house? I am totally 'bout it 'bout it.
