Faceted…brought to you by Frieda Sophie

July 13, 2016


herkimer diamond

frieda sophie is a long-time beloved blissful sponsor. the rough, yet refined jewelry never disappoints and personally, some of these pieces have been favorites of mine for the longest time.

i do love everything in her shop right now, however, i simply cannot get past the stunning faceted rings…set perfectly, yet not too perfect. stones that have been overly messed with and cut have never been my thing…these capture the shape, feel and natural sheen perfectly. i also love the fact that each of them could be worn for a formal occasion, but also look perfect with a pair of jeans and t-shirt…”versatile” is an understatement.

oh and did in mention they are all on sale?


aquamarine oval


watermelon tourmaline


aquamarine crystal


green tourmaline


blue fire opal

perfect right?

i am headed out on a roadtrip…typically, during these situations i drop off for a bit…not this time! do you remember in the good old days when i used to do a bit more sharing? well i am at it again, i can’t wait to share a bit of our days with you through this blog of mine…also, i would love for you to follow along on instagram.

see you tomorrow friends.

a lovely contradiction…

June 15, 2016


often times i believe beautiful interiors are all about just the right amount of contradiction…such is the case with this home. this space is dripping in elegance, yet is also completely full of livability. everything comes together in just the right way to create something so special…of course then there are the greens and blues, my favorite colors…especially when put up against white, white, and more white.

spatial code of copenhagen designed this space…love it so much…

herringbone floors should be easy peasy to install yes? i am thinking i may need them.
