New Orleans

Posted in Bloggity by laurencorbyn on August 18, 2010

I planned to have this post together over a month ago, but couldn’t get the images to my computer.  Finally the problem is solved.  I am in LOVE with all the fabulous typeface in New Orleans.  Street signs alone were killer.

I had never been to NOLA, but had the opportunity when some friends chose it for their destination wedding.  I got the chance to explore the city on my own the day of the wedding.  I had the best time!  There are so many great little shops, fantastic food, and a lot of people watching.  The heat was oppressive, but made the Abita beer that much more refreshing.  I can’t wait to go back.

And because it always comes back to food with me:

While I’m at It . . .

The list grows.  A birthday is just a great excuse to SAY all the things that pop up that I’d like to get my hands on.

A chic Kelly Wearstler for Sferra blanket at Gilt Group today–cause I’m the kind of girl who wraps up in a blanket even when it’s 100 degrees outside.  Not cause I’m cold, just cause it feels so good.

The Birthday Wishlist Grows, and Gets Serious

Hope white is available by the 22nd.  If not, I’ll gladly accept black.  And the issues some people are having with dropped calls and such probably don’t compare to the issues I’m having with my 3G.

Mmmm.  iPad.  With 3G it’ll be perfect for client meetings without wireless access.  I mean, if I presented you with a design plan on this baby, you’d definitely shell out the big bucks for fabulousness, right?

The real deal 60″, marble topped Saarinen dining table.  Seriously.  Someone call my husband.

Birthday Wishes

To get my blog mojo going again, I thought I’d share a burgeoning birthday wishlist with you.  August 22nd for those of you keeping score.

Found on Gilt Group, from Geren Ford:

One of these beauties from Chan Luu.

And dinner here.

Toot, Toot!

Thanks to Ava Living for featuring Lauren Corbyn Interiors as an Ava’s Choice designer this week!  The theme of the week is “Dazzling Countertops and Backsplashes.”  You can see more of my Elmhurst house design on Ava, or for even more images check out my portfolio on my website.

Oof.

It’s HOT.  So naturally I’m thinking about fall clothes.  Check out some lovelies J.Crew has to offer.

Jeans perfect? Check.  Skirt possible? Check. Grey tights? Check.  Everyday boots. 100%

So these are still summery, but would work great for transitional weather too.  I don’t know if I can pull these off as my feet are um . . . sizable.  I’ve never tried them, but I’m skeptical.

These are like cute sweatpants for your feet.


Flats with a zipper on the back.  A touch of gold, or maybe a burnished pink.

THESE are the piece de resistance for me.  Fabulous platform pump with a chunky heel in a rich leather.  This olivey brown is nice, and I think it might go with a lot.  Casual heels–my fave.  But they’re still so elegant!

Rugs

I may have just solved some rug woes.  Need a runner and a biiiiig rug near each other.  This might do the trick.  A lot of this:

With a little of this:

Some Faves from West Elm

Posted in Bloggity by laurencorbyn on June 17, 2010

West Elm is previewing their new fall offerings.  I’ve found a few things worth a second look. (This is not a sponsored post)

Organic Imperial Duvet and Shams

Tufted Headboard! Reasonably priced.

Cooper Slipcovered Sofa

Love this squiggle!

Or a stripe!

Add a shot of texture with a jute cube

I’m a sucker for a black and white kilim.

When used sparingly and in the right place, these pillows rock.

Love a good basket.  Here, with a dash of the graphic.

Nice fall West Elm.
