A Few Good Links

Hi there! Some news on the apartment front: my bedroom is officially PINK. Thanks to everyone who weighed in on Insta stories when I was deciding on a color! I went with Farrow and Ball Middleton Pink and while I’m still kind of getting used to it, I do really like it, and I think it’ll be even better once I get some stuff on the walls and a rug and headboard and whatnot. And I know I keep saying this but I really do promise to share updates on the blog soon! I’ve just been kind of all over the place busy lately (which is lame and no one wants to hear about how busy a person is), but I’m struggling a little to find time to photograph things and figure out how to organize the posts. But I will, promise.

Last night I went to ABCV for the first time – it’s a vegetarian “spinoff” of my favorite restaurant in the city, ABC Kitchen, and guys. Put this on your New York City list. IT’S SO GOOD! I assume they change the menu based on what’s in season (as they do at ABC Kitchen), but if you can get the coconut sticky rice, do it.

Some weekend reading for you all – have a wonderful weekend!

This inspiration board is so pretty!

A super simple tip to keep your home tidy.

I’d Rather Be Reading.Β 

Will shared some excellent tips for decorating with blue and white and pattern mixing.

Ok this trailerΒ for the new Jennifer Lawrence film looks so good (and scary, watch out!).

I came across this candle yesterday at Mecox and it smells soooo yummy.

I really like this acrylic file holderΒ – definitely better than piles of paper.

What do you think of Miles Redd’s NYC townhouse? It’s eclectic and bold…certainly not minimal!

Got an extra 4 million lying around? This Paris apartment could be yours.

Can’t wait for The Crown Season 2!

    Thanks for the heads up about “The Crown” returning on December 8. I love that series and it looks like the second season is going to be even better than the first.

    I chose Middleton Pink for our guest room/office…well the accent wall anyway. Still loving it!

    Hi Jackie,
    Thanks for the link to Lee’s beautiful Paris apartment. Funny I should see everything Kennedy these days. I just finished reading “Jackie’s Girl” and The Nine of Us. Both Kennedy books make excellent reading. Pink Bedroom! I know I will fall in love with it.
