fairy dust linen lust

images: bella notte linens all via Cottage Chic Store

Bella Notte has long been a favorite of mine. I love how you can mix and match the various fabrics - linen, velvet, satin, lace - and colors - lighter colors like white, champagne, petal, fawn, and ginger with richer ones like charcoal, graphite, amethyst, chocolate, and forest. Aren't these lovely names? The combinations are truly endless. I'm also a huge fan of the long skirted and layered dust ruffle. The more puddle going on, the better (to an extent, of course).

Angelic, dreamlike, cozy, and beautiful -- this is what a bed should look like to me.

closet envy

Olivia Palermo is, hands down, one of the best dressed girls out there. She is so tailored without looking too contrived. She pulls off the masculine look better than anyone else and her accessories are always spot-on.
Like her personal style, her apartment is just as fashionable and glamorous, with pops of color and sleek lines (I love the tufted cream chair with pink piping.)
