be a visionary

7559a59d4fd8a8f842eacde9695e96afThis week pinterest was chock full of inspiration for my future home (and fantasy vacation home!).  Dina and I live in a NYC apartment that we adore, but it’s getting tight and soon we’ll need to find something bigger.  We are fortunate though since our space is strategically designed, utilizing every square inch (our fridge/freezer are drawers!).  The previous owners were an architect and interior designer.  We got very lucky.  As much as we’d like to stay, the time is coming that we’ll need to pack up and out.  I love our current decor, but it’s exciting to plan how we’ll style the next space!  I always think each new apartment will change from a design perspective but up until this point, consistency prevails.  Creature of habit, I suppose.  For our next move we’ve discussed mid-century modern, complimented with natural elements such as distressed wood and greenery.  And a little boho, of course!  Pinterest is an excellent resource for collecting ideas to create your vision board.  I recommend taking time to explore it.  Whether it be for home decor, fashion, wedding design, recipes, etc., images are contained to one space for reference.  I recently referred my client to the site so he could visually articulate the menswear styling that inspired him.  He’s now a converted pinner!  Here’s a few rooms I’ve found to help bring our vision to life and you can follow me here for much more!

Have a great weekend!  xx jenny

perfect popover…

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 10.42.53 AM

It is unlikely that I will buy this jcrew collection popover because there is about a 4-6 week window where the weather allows for it (think early fall and spring) and I simply cannot rationalize spending the $400 for something with such little wearability.  It will either be too cold or too hot and this piece is just too pretty to spend the majority of its lifespan tucked away in my closet!  And let’s be real, it is certainly pricey for a top.  BUT….I am fawning over it – it’s my version of design perfection.  Super stylish, comfortable, can be worn with anything and provides a boho and ethnic sensibility (which lends itself to my personal style).   Let’s play dress up anyway – sometimes we don’t need to spend a lot of money to take something beautiful, be inspired by it and create our own iteration.  I know that’s my plan!  xx #yoursoulstyle
