cheap(er) chic: casual glamour

Casual glamour is definitely a difficult balance to strike--it is all about a few luxurious touches mixed with organic and understated elements. I think this space and cheap(er) chic clothing pieces perfectly embody that mix...

(via nuevo estilo)

(via tibi, anya hindmarch, banana republic and temperly)
Plus I love any room or outfit that has a splash of turquoise! And love the use of screens in this dining/living area.

You do these room-to-outfit comparisons so well! And I think the couch with it's turquoise cushion is perfect.

That couch...oh my gosh! What a statement it makes in the room.

I love how you've matched the accessories so perfectly to the room. If you squint and look really close, you will see me in the back corner of that room in this very outfit. Thanks for doing a feature on my lovely home! ;)
