What a stylish take on a boys room. That mobile is enchanting. The colors are sophisticated while not being too mature. Lots of inspiration here.

Vogue calls Tory Burch’s Southampton estate “the sort of house that Jay Gatsby might have built to bedazzle Daisy Buchanan and win her heart back again.” I couldn’t agree more. It’s the stuff dreams are made of.

If you asked me last year or even six months ago, I would say confidently that I want four children. Today, well, my confidence has waned. I have more practical thoughts like: How big of a house would we need? Could we pay for college for all of them? Do you ever get to go out to dinner? Six plane tickets are expensive! Do you ever sleep? I still want more, for sure. How many? We’ll let fate (and experience) determine that. 


This photo of these gorgeous bunk beds rekindled my fire for four, if only for a minute. It could make a more modest home doable with four kiddos. Philip Gorrivan Design did this room. I found it on One Kings Lane today, where they are selling accents from the room design. Too cute. 

I was inspired by the design so I checked out their portfolio. How gorgeous are these rooms?

It’s looking more and more likely that we’ll be heading to a rental sooner rather than later. With every change comes opportunity, right?  I’m looking forward. Naturally, that means I’m thinking about how I might decorate my next space. Jordan Ferney at Oh Happy Day (love her parties!) put this gorgeous removable wallpaper in her rental. These photos show how quickly and easily it came down after being up for years. 

There are so many great removable wallpaper pattern options by Sherwin Williams. I also love the idea of using colored masking tape, from my favorite Little Green Notebook.

Also, rugs on top of wall-to-wall carpet is not a faux pas. In fact, it can cover less-than-perfect carpet.

I can’t resist looking on 1st Dibs…but I should. It always makes me a little bummed out. I want everything, and it is just a little too expensive. I am still on the hunt for the aforementioned media cabinet. It’s starting to make me a little crazy. I came across this. It’s perfect. Only it’s sold, and no doubt, it was just out of my budget. The hunt did lead me to Downtown LA, a gorgeous interiors store, full of inspiration. And there’s always TINI (I really want to find a place for this).

What! I just discovered that an all-time-favorite, Zara, has a Zara Home line that is available in 38 countries EXCEPT the United States. To top it off, they have a Zara Home Kids line. The photo above is just a snippet of their bright and beautiful offerings. More here. I’m officially starting my campaign to bring Zara Home to the US. Zara! Zara! Zara!

This is such an adorable idea for stairs in a cottage or cabin.

I am hoping to start my weekend off by picking up a new buffet/entertainment unit for our living room that will accomplish this look. I love the idea of masking the TV with furniture (shouldn’t our rooms be about entertaining and conversation, not about staring at a screen?), and this example does such a good job of creating a scene. Fingers crossed my Craigslist find works out!

What do you think about a rug in the kitchen? Our little guy is just about to crawl and our house has hard surfaces throughout. We spend quality time in the kitchen, and I think he will too. Plus, I adore this bold pattern.

I just love the simple elegance of this crib. The New Traditionalists furniture design/manufacturing team are new to me (thanks to Simplified Bee) and I really love their work. Their statement that cool and traditional don’t need to be mutually exclusive fits me to a tee. This credenza would be especially cool in our living room.

This could be my new favorite magazine. If its claim to be “part Jamie Drake, part Dorothy Draper” holds true, it will be the perfect mix for me. I can’t wait to read it on my new iPad.

How gorgeous is this painting by Michelle Armas? I would love any one (or four!) of her pieces in my home.

Before I could even pronounce my name, I was proclaiming "Drisky Do It"—wanting to take on the world with bold enthusiasm. A few decades later, and not much has changed. Here, I catalogue the "Christy Do Its", the things I am doing and aspire to be doing.
