A Wonderfully Sunny Weekend

It was a beautiful weekend for the first time in a long time in Southern California and I soaked it all up! I can only hope that it will hold over for the July 4th weekend too!

I have always been drawn to hanging chairs.  I am not sure if it is the look I like or the fact that it is basically an acceptable version of an indoor swing without getting the weird looks from friends and family.  Either way, I want one.  The question is, do I want a rattan chair or a bubble chair?

The Hirths!

Our friends Ali and Marcus got married at the beginning of this month.  I was so excited to go and be there on their BIG day.  Not to mention I got to see my favorite photographers!  Dana & Jeremy Photography shot my wedding too and it was so nice to be on the other end this time.  Look how gorgeous these pics turned out and see more on their website!

Ruffles, Ruffles Everywhere!

I almost had a wedding dress with ruffles.  Everywhere we went I was drawn to them that I had to try them on.  You can see why below!

I love this sculptural chandelier!  The best part is that it uses candles which I bet when lit is quite dramatic!  Purchase one at Atelier Abigail Ahern, and then purchase one more for me!

Since I have not seen the sun in what seems like months, I am thinking my husband and I might need to take a quick trip down to Miami.  Where else would we stay besides The Tides?

Design Within Reach

Who knew Design Within Reach really made EVERYTHING!  I was flipping through the site as I tend to do on occasion, dreaming about my next purchase when I noticed a tab that I had never seen before.  STRUCTURES.  I was absolutely stunned when I clicked on it.  Houses, trailers and even a tepee!  

The Design Within Reach prefab Kithaus

These prefab structures come in either 9' x 13' or 11' x 17' sizes.  They can be fully assembled in just a couple of days and are practically waste free as well.  You can even have kitchens and baths installed!

An installation in Central Coast, California.

An installation in Brooklyn, New York.

I personally LOVE an Airstream.  I told my VERY outdoor oriented husband, that I would be willing to go camping if we had an Airstream.  Now I am going to have to be more specific and ask for the Design Within Reach version.
It even includes the two Tripolina chairs...

four sets of the Heller dinnerware...

and even Matteo bedding!  I think I could sleep soundly on this trailer.

I am sure that Erin over at Erin Ever After will put this on her wishlist since I know that she is a fan of tepees!
