I am loving the fragrances and the packaging of Stockholm-based Byredo Parfums. The bottles are so simple and lovely... and with ingredients including bergamot, lemon, vanilla, and sandalwood, I am especially eager to try their Gypsy Water. You can visit their online shop for all their products, including newly released matching shower gel and body lotion.

I've had this image by photographer Nancy Neil (her Carpinteria, California home was featured on design sponge) bookmarked for a while and I keep coming back to it. It may be because I have the same duvet cover... but primarily I love her photograph above the bed and how well it seems to fit the room. Of the photograph, she says: "this image titled "Palms" was taken on a stormy day in Brownsville TX - the poorest county in our nation. A rainbow appeared just as I clicked the shutter!"


I love this conceptual project by design student Kevin Angeloni featured on lovely package... the goal was to design packaging for 12 pencils as if they were luxury items. A+ in my opinion!

I think I need these one thing sticky notes by pretty bitter... although in my case they should really read "I will do one thing today that I have been putting off for ________."

I am a big fan of Pigeon Toe Ceramics—especially their faceted hanging trays. Perfect for hanging some low-maintenance succulents... {available from their etsy shop and Branch Home}


These coastal shots of the Hamptons by The Sartorialist for Italian Vogue Pelle leave me looking forward to long summer days spent on the beach...

I love the bright neons of these wood & stoneware vases by French homewares line Adónde... how fun is that pink?!

This weekend the weather in Santa Barbara was rather blustery and so it seemed the perfect time to set about spring cleaning... and attempting to organize my endless amount of magazines, which always end up in piles all over the place. I love the idea of neatly stacking them against a bare wall (a la Julia Restoin Roitfeld above), but am not sure my cream carpeted floors can pull it off... Any suggestions? How do you keep your magazines organized? {Images by Todd Selby}

I love the beautifully simple designs of Doca Pet's pet bowls... proof that a little design goes a long way. {via daily candy and seesaw designs}

One of my current favorite paper lines is Tall Cow... aren't they quirky? All of their cards are hand-printed and their big cards would be great to frame...
