Rando Design Inspiration Friday

This has been a super stressful week, to say the least, as I had my midterm presentation on Wednesday for my class. The night before I was at a Fed Ex/ Kinkos until 3AM trying to print out my presentation from my Mac and needless to say, the employees there didn't seem to care about my troubles. The presentation went well, I think, considering how tough the prof is! Now I can sit back and enjoy some good old fashioned interior design. Shall we?
Cullman & Kravis is one of my favorite design firms so I was thrilled when I heard that Ellie Cullman and Tracey Pruzan were picked for "Saturday Shopping" on 1st Dibs this week! She has impeccable taste--isn't this hall gorgeous? That archway is so inviting and from what I can see of that round fixture, I love it!

I may or may not have gone to another Margaret Russell event, but this time, she signed my new book, Style and Substance! The book (I've paged through it 4 times so far) is gorgeous and, like she said, full of timeless interiors.

This is a really cool old barn converted to a home in the Finger Lakes region of NY! Yay Finger Lakes! I wish I still knew how to play the piano because this one is beautiful. From Martha Stewart.

I have the rest of the week off from school so I can finally relax and have a fun Halloween! The beau and I are going to be Bella and Edward from Twilight! Do you guys have any fun plans? Dressing up? Tell me everything.

Have we been under a rock? How did we miss the fact that Margaret Russell has another book out? We'll be sure to get it.

Love that console!

Glad to know your midterm presentation went well.

Oh gosh, your FedEx story brings back memories. I hope you have a wonderful, care-free weekend :)

3 am in a Fedex/Kinkos? Oh you poor thing, that is a nightmare. But at least now it is over and it went well.

The BF and I are going to a Halloween party tonight dressed as Captain Morgan And His Wench. I am modifying an old victorian vampire costume I wore a couple of years ago. Cutting off all the pointy black chiffon bits and replacing with ivory lace, a big black belt with a sword and some skull & crossbone jewelry. The BF on the other hand is fretting over finding a hat exactly like the one on the bottle of Captain Morgan. Geez.

Have fun at your party!

I love the presentation of that room from the archway. The buffet table fits perfectly into that decor.
