finding the perfect bed is as hard as not shopping during black friday.  i didn’t realize until recently that beds are REALLy expensive.  every time i find one that i liked, it ends up being mucho $$$.

i’ve been sleeping on our west elm platform bed for the last 5 years and i’m really getting sick of it.  it was purchased back when i was really into minimalist design and platform bed was the shit.  however, ever since our paris trip a couple of years ago, i was completely inspired by the parisian style.  now one thing i really want to invest in is a new french bed.  it’s pretty much one of the last big furniture we really need for our place. i thought finding the perfect bed was hard, but finding the perfect french bed in the u.s. is near impossible.  after months of searching, i finally found a couple of contenders:

the sophia from layla grayce

the franchesca from liv chic

i’m still kind of iffy on both of them, but at least i am making progress!


i love a super fancy and extravagant chandelier in the middle of a clean and simple room.

over the years, my fascination with gold has grown tremendously.  whether in interior or fashion, there’s something about gold accents that really adds a sense of glamour and warmth.  for the longest time, i was afraid of using gold.  i thought it looked tacky and obnoxious.   now i’ve realized the key to adorning with gold is keep it simple.  since it already has such a strong presence, it’s better to keep it as an “accent.”

the ysl arty oval ring’s stone goes over the knuckle.  i wear mine all the time.

the pamela love talon cuff is my favorite piece of jewelry.  i love wearing it with jeans and t-shirt.
