A Sunny Afternoon boards back in stock

from the weekend: summer in michigan

summer in michiganI’m back in LA today dreaming of the time we spent last week at the cabin. Every time we go I fall in love more and more with my home state of Michigan. The best part of this weekend was filled with sunshine, looong beach days, quiet walks, sunset beach fires, and a few games of scrabble. :)

LA home: living room chair update

living room art wall // smitten studioliving room chair update // smitten studioRemember a while back when I was looking for a new chair to replace my two yellow one’s that I sold? Well, it took me long enough, but I finally made a decision. I ended up going with a vintage Knoll Hardoy chair (aka. butterfly chair) that I picked up from Surfing Cowboys. This chair wasn’t even on my original round up (which by the way… if money was no object I would have picked the Rhys chair hands down, and I was actually going to go with the Everett chair from West Elm, but by the time I got around to it that striped fabric I wanted was no longer available), but as soon as I saw the vintage piece alongside a matching footrest, I knew everything about it was perfect for my space.

I also updated my art wall a bit since the last time I posted it, including that Mima Mouse Poster on the bottom left from Mini & Maximus.

from the weekend: back to cabin

We made it to the cabin yesterday just in time for our nightly sunset walk. No one was around except the fireflies who were making the beach grass sparkle up and down the waters edge. Summer in Michigan is soo good.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.
