I’ve been shopping on registry lists quite a lot lately, which made me wish we’ve had “the American” wedding. Since there is no tradition of wedding registry in Russia, I feel like I’ve missed out on a great opportunity to score some beautiful dinnerware (‘coz let’s face it – when else would you treat yourself to a hundred-dollar plate?!).
So I’ve decided to put together my registry for “just in case” occasion…that is just in case I have extra $100 laying around. The first on the list would come the new DVF Home Collection. So fun and whimsy, it brings the memories of warm summer evenings…
…when you can pick a fresh bouquet,
…gaze into the night sky laying on the beach,
…be creative and artsy,
…or try something new and unexpected.

The gift giving season might be over but I couldn’t leave unmentioned my new web find. Whether searching for inspiration or for a gift GENERATE has it all. Unique International Design is great but Unique International Design with a sense of humor is incredible. When hesitating what to give – skip a faceless gift cards, give something to smile at. And that’s truly a gift.

My ultimate rainy day recipe is finishing all of you DIYs (that you’ve been putting away till a rainy day) and watching old classics. Taking into consideration that it’s been raining non-stop for 3 days already, I did just that.sometimes I think we had more rainy days here in LA, I would have been a more productive person overall :)
I’ve been wanting to do a yarn wreath for quite a while now so yesterday I finally sat down to do it over Funny Girl.
it started slowly… about hour and a half later,
I just LOVE the final result! What are you doing on your rainy/snowy days?

We are getting down to the wire – one week till Christmas. While I have a few more gifts to buy, I can’t resist the pleasure to browse for some more gift wrapping ideas. I love the budget-friendly wrapping ideas, because honestly, after a shopping spree who wants to go and buy stuff that will be immediately tossed into the garbage after opening the gift, right? So here I’ve gathered ideas that employ scraps and bits of ribbon, paper, textiles as well as natural elements that you can easily pick up while walking a dog. Simple and adorably cute!

As the last Christmas decor inspiration board I decided to challenge myself with the manly decor. I can totally see all those bachelors out there struggling to bring in the spirit home while keeping it cool. The ultimate key to keeping Christmas decor modern and manly is stepping away from the traditional stereotypes.
Starting with the unconventional Christmas tree – keep the shape but in charcoal gray and sparkle, while bringing the greens in accessories. I love the Embossed Pine Candle from Restoration Hardware, it will also brings a smell of the holidays. Enriching the white/gray/black pallet with metallic sparkle will entail the festive mood and faux fur adds a tad of wintery comfort. And to top it of I added the intellectual games accents, which always make a bachelor look like a good catch :)
