Yacht Rock - a great band to set the mood for this post.

I've already bought my first pair of espadrilles and it's still January. I'm having spring fever earlier than normal this year, I think it's a fatal case. These nautical inspired introductions for an early spring might do the trick, turn this S.A.D (seasonal affective disorder) girl glad.

I've got to do something about my sofa. A. replace it. B. add some color to it. Black and white is easy, and a personal go-to, but I want to add some flavor to my living room. I guarantee a decision will be made by Friday because I'm sick of looking at my boring couch.

kiss my brass

Like LL Cool J said, don't call it a comeback. Brass is generally seen in traditional homes, but like many others, I'm digging it in any kind of application.

Judging by the popularity of these pretties, brass is back, like it never left.

Kitchen necessities that are brass: faucets, cabinet pulls, pendants, knuckles.
