London Fog

Welcome back from the weekend...can somebody please lie to me and tell me it's not Monday already?

Anyway, pish-posh. Another weekend will be upon us in just a few days, so until then, let's just enjoy the beautiful week ahead. After all, it's finally May and this girl is very excited about seeing some sun.

So, because I've never been good at quickly getting to the point, a couple of random tidbits:

-All was going well Friday afternoon until I checked my email on my iPhone and found a chipper little note from Urban Outfitters telling me I needed to check out their new arrivals for summer. Ever the obedient shopper, I hopped on over to the site and did just what they told me. I added several lovely items to my bag, including two of my fave purchases, this and this. Oh UO, you devil...

-I watched An Education last night while catching up on blogging and work stuff. 10 minutes into it, all productivity came to a halt. This movie is SO good. Cary Mulligan and Peter Saarsgard had amazing chemistry together as "teacher" and "pupil" and the London setting/wardrobe styling was impeccable. I'll be buying this one.

Still in Brit-mode from last night's flick, I couldn't help but share this impressive little photo spread from Elle Decor...

It comes to us from the London townhouse of Christine d'Ornano, cosmetics exec for Sisley. It's a little bit English Country, a little bit Parisian Chic. A little cozy, a little edgy.

The front drawing room features an upholstered sofa, a pair of Lalanne chairs and plenty of kitschy, cool accessories.

The back drawing room (below) is completely upholstered in pink linen. And how much do we LOVE the red, paisley print sofa paired beside the white loveseats?

I could get some major writing done in this office...

I'm not a fan of heavily styled dining rooms, but this one...oh this one. She's different. My favorite element? The custom-made bright yellow chairs that surround the kitchen table, which was designed by d'Ornano and her husband, Marzouk.

So much decorating goodness to take in. Can you stand it?

Be blessed, lovelies-
