TGIF, party people! We made it to Friday and thank goodness for that. Last night I stopped by the Taschen book store down in SoHo. Have you ever bought a Taschen coffee table book? If not, they are having a MAJOR sale at the moment. The Surfing book pictured above is one of my all time favorites and it’s currently 50% off! I picked up so many classics and new-to-me favorites including 100 Getaways, Great Escapes North Amerca and New York.
This weekend the only real plans we have is stopping by The New York Times Travel Show. If you haven’t been before – I highly recommend! Take a peek below for my favorite links from around the web this week, there are some good ones! Xo. Lauren
If there’s one trend I’m loving this winter it’s velvet! Although one fun fact about me, I actually hate the texture of velvet. Growing up I was a competitive gymnast so I lived in velvet leotards for over 12 years. To this day I can’t really touch the soft fabric but I’m really starting to love the way it looks! I actually was looking into investing in navy velvet pillows (I love these!) for my couch because I love the way they look but again, I know I wont use them so that’s out. Anywho, today I’ve rounded up over 13 velvet items you can easily add to your winter wardrobe!
I came across this Austin home tour the other day on Lonny and instantly fell in love. Can you blame me?
Houston based stationary designer, Megan Davis, and her husband bought this charming abode on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas. I have yet to make it to Austin, Texas but it’s certainly on my to-do list! Full of vibrant prints, unexpected antiques and blue and white stripes elevate this home tour and make it one for the design files.
The couple worked with interior designer Meg Lonergan on their weekend getaway home. As the couple uses this abode as a second home, the couple and Meg Lonegran wanted to create an escape that was clean, crisp and could easily accommodate frequent visitors. Don’t worry, I’ve bookmarked Meg’s portfolio so will definitely be sharing more of her work here on l-n.com! Scroll on down for some serious inspiration. Happy Wednesday, friends! Xo. Lauren
I cannot believe Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether or not you have a significant other or not, I think Valentine’s Day is one of the most fun holidays to celebrate throughout the year. Incorporating beautiful arrangements of red and pink roses throughout your house, baking cookies or giving sweet valentines to your friends and family always make this holiday so fun in my book! So of course I think you should treat your self this Valentine’s Day.
