In The Mood for A Good Book?

I am in love with towering bookshelves filled with the old and the new. It is my dream to have a library in my home filled with all of my favorite readings. Libraries hold so much meaning, you can tell a lot about a person by looking at the books they read. Bookshelves truly add character to any room. Here are some gorgeous uses of bookshelves, not only in libraries but all over the home. There is always room for a few good books!

Style Icon of the Week: Leighton Meester!

Leighton Meester is the star of the fantastically fashionable show, Gossip Girl. She has really come out in the past year and started to define her style. Although, sadly, I have seen her on the worst dressed page on occasion, for her sometimes "unique" outfits. I love her style, she is such a gorgeous girl and she is always glowing. The dresses she wears are always phenomenal, and her shoes are always to die for. Overall, no matter what other people say I still love her unique and chic style.

The Warmth of a Home!

A glowing light, a gathering space, a conversation point. Fireplaces are an important asset to a home. People are drawn to the warm flickering light of a beautiful fireplace. This is a place to gather around with family and friends, whether it be outside or inside, traditional or modern, fireplaces create a mood. A new thing I love is filling fireplaces with wood, candles, or books. They truly create a feeling of comfort and warmth in a home.

Feeling Blue?

Blue is the epitome of serenity. It is such a calming and soothing color, mimicking the sky and the water, it could add a serene feel to any room in your home. Whether it's deep royal blue or light sky blue, blue walls or accessories truly make a room comfortable. My home has soothing blue walls which creates a tranquil and inviting space. So, are you feeling blue?

This is my absolute favorite picture! Look at the books in the fireplace, how unique!
