Kate Spade's first UK shop came in the form of this stunning "pop up shop". This charming Covent Garden boutique was only open for a month, and is now closed :( Good thing I still have these happy photos to oooooh and ahhhh over.

{ wednesday wish list }

A few swell things I'm eyeing right now...

Dangit. I've been swooning over this sweet bicycle print shirtdress from Anthropologie for a few months, but it looks like it's now sold out. I suppose I'll need to start stalking ebay for this one. You know you're a grown up when you have Silpat baking pads on your Christmas list. I've heard OUTSTANDING things about these. These tape measure brooches are just so cool and clever.

{ pardon my absence, and a ? }

My deepest apologies to you lovely readers who may have been checking in here and not seen any new posts for some time now. I've been very busy as of late, and honestly, also a tad uninspired with ideas to post about. I'm trying to get out of my funk and back into blogging. So here goes....
Hanging televisions over do you feel about this? This subject matter has become the great debate between the Mr. and myself lately. I've never really been a fan of it. I don't think I'm alone here. I feel like putting that big black box above the mantle has been taboo in the design world for a while. And yet, recently I'm seeing more and more examples of spaces where this whole look comes across as polished, beautifully minimalist, and just plain right.
Very pretty, huh? There's also just something that makes sense about combining these two focal points into one. But I think I'd still prefer a compromise solution. Perhaps something like this.or this What about you? Do you like the look of a sleek plasma screen over the mantle or do you prefer the television be housed atop an entertainment center of sorts? Or are you like me and prefer the idea of being able to hide the TV away when not in use?
