As you all may know when it comes to my dining room I've been having a lot of trouble getting the design just right.  There is a door, doorway or archway on every wall so everything just kind of floats in the middle of the room.  That being said I saw this multi-doored dining space and got inspired.  I love the rustic baskets and coat hooks paired with the curvy cafe chairs and smooth wood benches that ground really the space.  Love, love, love.

fashionising, elle
All this rainy weather makes me wanna break out my faux-fur coat and black leggings like these stylish ladies.  The only thing is my coat is similar to the bottom one and makes me look a bit like a prostitute.  If I'm looking for something more like the top coat is it okay to buy a  real fur coat if its vintage?

Spotted this house over on Love Nordic and had to share it here.  The whole house is really amazing and worth a peek.

Dreaming of a holiday dress l like this one to wear to all those Christmas parties.  Its so "glitta glama" as a homeless man once yelled at me.

Loving the idea of a kitchen as a great piece of furniture that flows with the rest of the house rather than its own room.

I finally went back to Ikea and got the second door for the "entertainment unit," I supposed thats what you'd call it.  Anywho, all that asymmetry was driving my OCD brain crazy and now I'm super happy.  Oh, and I picked up a new little cactus friend (I know,  I haven't taken it out of the plastic pot yet, but that little sucker is prickly!)

I picked up these little ankle booties in while in San Francisco and haven't stopped wearing them since.  All I can say is I'm in major shoe love.

One of my favorite shops we visited in San Francisco had to be Paxton Gate on Valencia.  Walking in here is like going to a natural history museum, but you can buy pretty much everything you see. Oh and they even have a nursery in the back.

I'm back from a trip up the the the bay area and although it was super amazing, magical, and fantastic, I'm still glad to be home.  So, without further ado I give you "Los Angeles I'm Yours."

I'm in love with the "bookshelf" pictured in the home of Jay Atherton and Cy Keener.  I have all my books in neat stacks on the floor ever since my shelves decided to randomly fall off the wall, and I had gotten used to them being there but these simple slabs of wood give me inspiration for something just a touch less... sparse.

ps I'm off to San Francisco and Point Reyes for the holiday but I'll be sure to post lots of pics from our adventure when I get back!

Speaking of DIY I saw the bottom chandelier on Design*Sponge the other day and thought how awesome it would be to make something like that but a little less "stick-ish"...enter Spica by Iacoli & McAllister.  Ohh and instead of the frosted white bulb using this bulb, heck yeah!
