Love seeing cottages from around the world. This is a cute cozy cottage in Norway with great mountain views. Rustic Scandinavian style. Cozy and charming. I would love to have an afternoon sit here with a warm cup of tea overlooking the view.
Ahhh...thinking...how can I get to Norway....!
P.S. Yesterday was my sweet friend ALG's birthday. Wishing her a very very happy one. Saw her last weekend at her 1 year old daughter's birthday party...they both looked adorable.

This Texas home by architect Michael Imber holds nothing back when it comes to the high ceilings in all shapes and forms...from coffered, to barrel vault, to groin vault, to exposed beams...this home is a study in ceilings!
Take a look.

This is a photo of my best of friend AM on her wedding day years ago...wearing a dress designed by the icon Oscar de la Renta. She looked beautiful that day. Happy in love and dazzling in a stunning creation that was her gown. Through his magnificent design, Mr. de la Renta played a significant role in one of the happiest days of AM's life. The dress gave her confidence and joy and made her day even that more special. When she walked down the aisle, I saw the gleam in her husband's eyes...
When I heard word last night about fashion designer Oscar de la Renta's passing at age 82, I paused for a moment. Everything went silent. I was in my car. It was so quiet. I don't know why but I've always admired Oscar de la Renta the most out of all fashion designers - his work was timeless and enchanting. I was sad for the loss but also humbled in recognizing that even the seemingly immortal are all but human.
Very rare to find a person who touches so many people with grace and charm and elegance...Mr. de la Renta was one it seems.
Wishing Mr. de la Renta much peace as he rests.

Things are starting to get just a little cooler here in Los Angeles...finally...so now I can start thinking about fall style and fashion. When it comes to fall and winter...I am all about black, white and neutrals. I can't wait each year to get new black opaque tights, put on my black boots (I have varying styles) and a warm comfy well cut jacket and set off.
For some reasons these rooms I found on Bolig got me thinking about a crisp version of fall...in black and white.
