Summer Weekends at Home


Its getting close to the end of peony season so instead of one bunch I purchased two this week. I have to get my fill while I can. They are next to my bed and I wake up to a sea of pink and a heavenly smell.


My favorite dyptique candle along with peonies makes for the best smell.


The warm weather here in Chicago has me in the mood for iced tea. I have a collection of Kusmi tea from Paris that I am digging into now. The beauty detox is my favorite.

Now that Wells Street is finished I feel like I can breathe for a minute. I worked straight through LA to now and I am feeling exhausted. Its been extra coffees to get me through the week. But in exciting news my passion project will be launching very soon and I hired an intern!! She is adorable, sweet, organized and a francophile so she fits right in! I can’t wait to share my new project with you. Zoey will be helping launch the new project. For those of you who stopped by wells street and braved the heat thank you so much!!

At home in Chicago


I have been home for a few weeks from Paris and I am working on something pretty exciting. I can’t wait to share because I know you all will LOVE it and as a tease it has to do with Paris 😉 As I work on this project I will be traveling stateside this month. A visit home to see Emma, my Dad and sister and I am headed to LA in a few weeks. I have only been once and I didn’t see much of the city so I am looking for tips and favorite places!

After traveling for three years I am happy to have a home here in Chicago. For so long I felt stuck creatively because I was always jumping from one place to the next. Now I feel more creative than I have in a long time. Its a bit overwhelming because I have so many ideas and they are flooding in all at once. Does anyone else ever have this feeling? Here is a quick shot from my home. I actually have furniture I am just waiting to fill my art with walls which its always the hardest problem choosing which photos will go up.

I have a bit of a candle problem lately as I keep collecting them. Here is one of my favorites that sits by my bed by Diptyque  I love the Baies one for Summer.
