A while back I blogged about the design firm Tilton Fenwick, which is run by the very talented Anne Foster and Suysel Cunningham. At the time their website was still under construction, so we couldn't see their entire portfolio. However, since I am a total stalker I kept checking back in and am delighted to announced that their new site is not only up and running, but easy to navigate and filled with inspiration. Here are just a few of the images that caught my eye...
Fun industrial lights spice up this dining area.
A great desk for siblings and a pretty bath.
Love the way they use wallpaper to accent the back of this bar and the panels on these doors.
Speaking of love. How good is this funky standing lamp?
And these bold lacquered walls? Such a statement.
There's lot more where this came from. Be sure to check it out yourself.
I meant to post this last week, and then things go away from me. However, if you follow me on Instagram (@xo_smash) you probably noticed that our scenery changed a bit over the last week. Mike ended up having a few days off work, so we decided to take advantage of the fact that we were both free and we took a long weekend to Beaver Creek, Colorado.
The scenery was absolutely stunning (and it took all of my self-control not to post 1,000 pictures of the mountains). We went hiking, horseback riding, and I tried white water rafting for the first time. We used Lakota Guides and I definitely recommend them if you're ever out there and looking to raft.
When we got back to the city last week I finally started painting our apartment. You see, most normal people paint their apartment and then move everything in, hang photos, etc. We moved in, hung all of our pictures and then started painting. But, for us it worked. It's been nice to live in the space a while and then decide exactly what to do. Anyway, the stripes I talked about here are now done, and I will be sharing more about the painting process later this week.
And you know, it's not summer without a few trips to Big Gay and some summer sunsets.
Ok, I'm really trying to get better about posting consistent "series." I like that it gives you something to look forward to, and I admit it makes my life easier knowing that I have a "category" to work on. That's a long way of saying that I'm bringing back the Saturday Smattering post.
I hope you have some fun plans this weekend! I'm heading to Westchester to go cake tasting with my friend. She is using the same bakery that we used for our wedding (Beascakes) so I am especially excited to go back! Their carrot cake and chocolate chip cookies are to die for...I have a feeling there is a doggy bag in my future.
Sometimes, a piece just calls you. This print was literally screaming my name when I found it on the sale rack (score!) at Otte a few weeks ago. I love a good off-the-shoulder look (it always reminds me of Saved by the Bell). AND it has pockets. AND! It's so roomy that you could easily wear it through nine months of pregnancy. Now, I'm not really in the market for that, but it's always nice to know that you could at least happily attend an all-you-can-eat buffet in a dress (and never experience a moment of discomfort).
I mean, that's what you consider when buying clothes right?
Can you believe this adorable embroidered dress is from Old Navy? I popped into their Soho store last week and was delighted to find a huge selection of great summer dresses. I tried on five that I loved, and for the bargain price of about $30 a dress, I was like HELLO! I'll take them all. Then I remembered my general goal of quality over quantity and decided not to get any.
Bet you didn't think that's where the story was going.
But, yesterday I succumbed to the Old Navy siren call when I found myself in Soho once more. I kept thinking about how pretty this dress was, so I decided it was ok to pull the trigger. They had it in my size and as they say, the rest is history. I highly recommend scooping this bad boy up (or it's adorable blue equivalent) ASAP. It's sure to sell out and it's 20% off today!
P.S. Here are a few more I loved (and a fun fact, if you're an XS at Old Navy you can usually fit into their cute girls dresses too. You do risk the chance that you might match your five-year-old niece though, so be warned).
