My heart breaks for those families suffering today, for those precious children that will never ever be the same because of what they've been through and, really, for humankind. With so much love and light in this world, it's hard to prepare ourselves for these dark moments.
The fine ladies over at Powell Brower Home were kind enough to ask me to talk about my dream home for their Dream Space Series. Having written a similar post nearly a year ago for Paloma, it was really interesting to see how my taste has evolved. Come check out my virtual "move." You'll find a little bit of this:
So, I hadn't planned on doing any gift guides here on BIA. (By the looks of things, I hadn't planned on mentioning the upcoming holidays at all. Minor oversight.) But there's one guide that I always want to see and never ever do.
Can a girl get gift ideas for the neighbors (that she really adores, but still doesn't know that well)??? We went the baked goods route last year, and I guess I feel like that's a winner. Food is always good, right? So for those of you that are in the same boat, this is for you . . . (and I'd love additional suggestions if anyone has a go-to!)
Happy Monday, peeps! How did the weekend treat everyone? We finally got our tree up and all is looking quite festive. I need to fill in some serious holiday decor gaps (I finally purged a lot of hand-me-downs despite the extreme guilt), but that may have to wait until post holiday sales ensue . . .

You probably can't because I adore his fabrics and you're here so therefore you must love his fabrics. It's the law of physics or something. Well, his Manhattan apartment is beyond. You can find the whole thing in this month's Elle Decor.
