Blissful Corners: Just a Bit of Gold Please…

October 11, 2017

you all know me…i have had a tough time committing fully to fall. however, at the moment, i am loving all of the autumnal hues i am seeing. of course, the leaves are lovely…i am also loving the bits of gold i have been bumping into on pinterest. especially, the tiny pops scattered throughout my favorite interiors. however, too much mustard is definitely not my thing. these spaces are perfect examples of the whole less-is-more concept.

A Country Home in Brooklyn

October 10, 2017

this brooklyn townhouse surprises me a bit…when i first ran smack dab into it on domino, i thought “what a pretty country home!” i love that this space is a country oasis in a large city. the boerum hill brownstone belongs to restauranteur matt kliegman and sophie green, his wife who is a yoga teacher and art therapist.

this adorable couple was married on a family farm outside of toronto…obviously, their country roots have crept into their married life as well. perhaps the answer to the whole city mouse/country mouse dilemma…

As many of you know, there was a time when photography (the kind taken with a real camera) was a huge part of who I am and what I did here on Bliss. Times change…thanks to the prevalence of phone photography and the accessibility of the camera phone, my old school photos fell to the wayside. Which is crazy, because some of my all-time favorite photos and moments were trapped inside my trusty DSLR. One of those “top 5” moments I had sadly neglected was the trip my family and I took to Iceland a few years back.

We had the privilege of experiencing this magical place with our dearest friends…one of whom is an Icelandic native. Due to the importance of this moment I lugged my big girl camera along and attempted to capture this place that was unlike anything I had ever experienced. I also took my phone. No surprise at all, my phone photos fell short. However, the photos taken with my big camera did not disappoint. I knew I needed to display a few of these in a very special way. It turns out the very best way to do so happened to be with a company I have been following for awhile, Framebridge.

I simply chose 2 of my favorite Icelandic photos:

I uploaded them directly to the Framebridge site, chose the perfect frame and mat, and voila! I really couldn’t be happier with how they turned out and the process was beyond easy. I am of course inspired to go through the rest of my photos and create and display Framebridge masterpieces throughout my home.

Wait! I simply couldn’t make this partnership all about me. Use promo code “blissblog15” at Framebridge.com to get 15% off your first order with Framebridge. Valid until 12/31/2017.
