So maybe it’s my head going crazy from all the pollen in the air—my forest green car was literally yellow from the stuff when I saw it today. Or maybe it’s the fact that spring is finally here, but I can. not. stop. thinking about plants! As my future is up in the air at the moment, I’m waiting to start my collection, but I’ve rounded up some looks that have me dreaming of how I want to decorate my future space with plant life. Do any of you plant-in-the-house veterans have any tips for me? Any great starter plants? I’m all ears!
You can find the links to the images, and more lovely spaces here.

Earlier this winter I had the lovely chance to connect with EMK over at Rethink Design Studio here in Savannah. We met through the blog—yay for blog connections, yeah? She won a giveaway on here a while back and when I realized her address was a couple blocks away I decided to hand-deliver the package to her. Don’t worry, I did let her know I was stopping by before-hand I’m not a
complete and total creeper. I love when weirdo things like that happen.
I’m excited to
finally give you a peek into Rethink Design Studio today! The team works in a lovely curated space that I just can’t get enough of. I’m kind of interior design illiterate, so I generally love to ooh and ahh over anyone who has that special gift to pull together a space in just the right way. Don’t get me wrong, I love picking things out to decorate with but it’s that whole putting it together in a way that didn’t look like a person who was void of realizing that three dimensional spaces exist did it. I have that issue, being behind this here computer so much. Anyways, I can totally appreciate a beautifully composed and decorated space—I was just not touched with this special gift myself. Le sigh.
The co-owner Joel at his desk. EMK calls the next picture “Joel in a box.” Loved that.
Since this is my first studio tour, I wanted to capture a little of everything. I really couldn’t stop snapping away at all the beautiful vignettes and objects that were around! Oh, and an adorable puppy—you definitely want to click through to see that gorgeous thing!

TRAVERSER: french for — to pass, to cross, to traverse, to span.
There are certain links that I come across throughout my study of the internet that I just can’t seem to shake.
ONE—This week I feel in love with this article about the creation of the typeface Krul. Learning about the history of how and why type is created is on of my deepest pleasures, and this story was a treat indeed.
TWO—La Buena Vida has quickly become a favorite recipe blog of mine. Being a recent kale fanatic myself, this recipe is calling my name. My fridge is swimming with this green goodness, and I can’t wait to try this one out.
THREE—Miss Moss‘ post entitled Rugs not Drugs has me oogling in delight. What a fantastic collection of floor décor!

Tangerine seems to be everywhere right now, and what a better tribute to the cheery color than with a match-up dedicated to things with orange bases? I wish I had a clementine to peel just to keep this trend going.

I don’t have much of a formal thought process right now, as I’m in the middle of finals — trying to build an app and a direct mailing piece…this weekend. yikes. Here are some nice things that are floating in my head. And that dress is SO MINE thanks to a certain someone :) Oh, and a mint flavored swiss army knife exists. Yep.

Two things that are striking my fancy. And when I say strike, they are very pointy indeed.

I needed a space to literally place some of the goodies I’ve been viewing around on pinterest and other places. Thus, a new column is born: Les Choses — French for ‘things.’
Right now I’m liking metals, pastels, and natural patterns. Those polka-dot glasses are totally calling my name as well. I’ve already concocted a plan to re-create them using these babies – when I get a free minute or so.
