Dreaming of a New Room

I have a file on my computer full of photos of perfect and curious bedrooms that I have been browsing for inspiration since I recently moved.   
Before you judge, you should know that I don't have a problem admitting that I watch Gossip Girl.  It's for the clothes.  And the compelling story lines. 
And I loved that blue room.

I like the idea of waking up in a room 
that always looks like night.


Hmm, it looks like I have a thing for built-in beds. 

I like the idea of sleeping in a cubby hole.


I also love the thought of a sleeping in a bed 
that looks older than America.
My room does have vaulted ceilings, 
which would almost make this a possibility:
Except that I have too many clothes and don't have the luxury of wasting space on a sofa.


But my room CAN have the look of a giant boudoir.


And maybe I could add a modern chandelier.  


Too much?


 I don't need a bunk bed but what if I want to have several friends over for a sleep-over?

Or what if I build a loft?  Then I could stick friends up there.


I know clean walls can offer a serene setting but I'm a sucker for visual stimulation.


What if I wallpaper one wall to match my clothes?




I could start with this thick fabric from Michael Levine.  I fell madly in love with it.  I could paste on the wall, use as a rug, cover my Queen Anne chair and sew a rough dress.

Dreamiest Make-Believe Couple


Doesn't this look like 
Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig's 
wedding day?

Thanks to her perfect Givenchy gown.  
Oh Riccardo Tisci, you can do no wrong.

 [Really it's them at the London premiere 
for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.]

If these are their wedding day photos, then the New York premiere would be from their 'Engagement Dinner.'

Rooney in a modern, ethereal confection from Prabal Gurung 
. . . and Daniel Craig in that hot hot suit.  


I don't know if I've mentioned this but I love the way he dresses on and off screen.

  Hmm, then the Stockholm premiere (with Rooney in Roksanda Ilincic), would be them leaving for their honeymoon.  
I would want to dress smartly too when I left 
on my honeymoon with Daniel Craig.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
Merry Christmas

A Dreamy Holiday Through The Years...






















We all have our set jobs over the years.

I take the nieces shopping.

 Alison makes something beautiful+delicious for all.

Alisa entertains in some irreverent way.

 Dad captivates with old stories.

Mom acts as hostess to all.

And Ash passes out, 
usually because she woke up before dawn to work out.
