Marimekko for Converse...uh uh. That's right. Makes me wish I wore sneakers.

5 One of the Most Amazing Collections I've Ever Seen...



Lisa Congdon's collection of vintage colorful enamelware makes me simultaneously so freaking happy and extremely jealous.


Also, in my next apartment (I've been doing lots of dreaming and planning lately if you can't tell.) I want to find a way to display some of my favorite things in this way.  Lots displayed, without it looking cluttered. Goes along with the whole minimalism vs maximalism debate too...


From the article Prized Collections from Martha Stewart.

2 Minimalism vs Maximalism from Jonathan Adler

I just had to repost this from Jonathan Adler's Musings...


I often have an internal struggle about this.  Part of me really wants to have a really minimalist, modern space. But I also love really well designed objects, having them surrounding me makes me happy.  I think this explains the balance of the two, or maybe rather how the two can coexist together.  I hope that in my next apartment I will be able to achieve a really good balance of the two...

Oh look, my coffee table is showing up all over the place this week!


This is also a great concept, nicely executed:  
Creative Flats designs and outfits high-end furnished spaces for rent...there are some great properties on their site.

6 New Toms...


I adore my Toms, but it's time for some new ones.  I want to get black ones, but I'm having a hard time choosing between the Black Classic and the Earthwise Slate Classics.  I was just going to get the normal black ones, but I like that the Earthwise's one's are made from vegan, earth friendly materials and the bit of shine makes them feel a little more special.  However, I'm mostly going to be wearing them with jeans and some variation of a black tee {my self imposed uniform}, or one of my many black cotton dresses, or black skirts.  I'm wondering if the regular black one's would look better and less fussy.

Anyway, this isn't exactly a life or death decision, but I'd love to hear your opinion.  Thanks!

Update!  Thank you for your opinions...I just ordered the classic black ones!

Loving Esser Vesper...

1 Jarlath Mellett's Manhattan Loft



Jarlath Mellett's Manhattan loft...this time a little different pair, a sofa and a daybed.  Still love it.  And low  storage along the wall, with a focus point, this time a fire place. Are we seeing some patterns here?


Found thanks to Escapade.

2 Living Room Inspiration...


This is a great space.  The more I see two sofas across from each other in living rooms, the more I'm convinced that is exactly what I want. Of course, I can't even decide on (or afford) one that I really like much less two.  But perhaps one day.

I also love the idea of low storage along one wall.  Admittedly I would put a tv on it too, although I love the focus on that large piece of art...hmm.

From Hus & Hem. Found thanks to House Of Turquoise.

2 You Rock...


You Rock...from Pink Shirts and Car Wrecks.  Seriously so many great things in their shop.

1 J Crew Shoes.

So, I still don't own any oxfords, but I still kinda really want them.  I like these because they have a lighter, more feminine feel than this more traditional pair.  Perhaps a ballet flat version like these would work better for me? These aren't really oxford-ish at all, but I like them.

0 Email Correction

Ok friends.  I made an unfortunate discovery today.  The email link in my sidebar was connected to an incorrect email address.  I can't even begin to explain this, other than you you shouldn't redesign your blog while you are trying to move across the country.  So, it's fixed now...but if you have ever sent me an email and I have not responded it is probably for this reason.  If you would like to resend previous emails or send me a new email anytime, I would LOVE to hear from you.

The proper email address is blackwhiteyellowblog@gmail.com

I apologize sincerely.
