Christmas Inspiration

Tomorrow is December 1st and it's time to decorate the pad. I am so excited because this year, Chris and I have decided to purchase a natural tree. I grew up with a fake tree every year so I am excited! I've been thinking of the theme this year since about October!!! I know, what a freak. But this is my inspiration. Feathers, black, white, champagne, snow, ballet, and GLITTER! 

I am so bummed these feather ornaments sold out from West Elm but I was able to snatch the faux fur tree skirt! Score. 

I also was able to get this feather wreath before it sold out as well! Quick thinking.

Of course I will be showing off the beautiful creations of my feathered Christmas. Stay tuned.

Umm is it Christmas yet because this is so on my list! Versace for H&M!!! Need I say more. Honestly I am bummed because I forgot all about it. Unlike the Missoni for Target craze, this completely slipped my mind. I know once I hit the stores all these great pieces will be gone...

Love this print shift dress. I can see me sporting it during summer

Do I need an outfit for the holidays umm yes, and this one would be perfect! Love the pink, love the studs!

Versace designed a few products for H&M's home line as well. This pillow looks stunning. Wish it was available around my area. 

Maybe I will be lucky and stumble upon a great piece one of these days. I just wish it is the pink shift dress in a size 2 or 4!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year has been flying by so fast. There are so many things to be thankful for. I have 1 more class until I can say I have my bachelor's in interior design and I got hired at my dream job! I am on cloud 9 and couldn't be happier. Chris and I are great and I love marriage. My family and friends have their health and their love! Thank you for another great year!

In case you are in need of some last minute Thanksgiving ideas, check out some of my favorite ideas. 

Cute idea to wrap paper around candles and label them with glitter and a wonderful message. 

How sweet are these little pumpkins. So delicate.


I can't wait to eat turkey and all the fixings!!!!

Thank you for supporting my blog and listening to my opinion in all things Bonito! May you have a safe and fun filled day with family and friends! 

Muchas gracias!

Patrick Nagel

Patrick Nagel captures the contemporary woman and has made his mark in 20th century graphic design. His work captures the fashion of women with simple form and bold colors. Still iconic and still very fashionable.

Check out Nagel's work at this Fenton/Fallon's jewelry showroom in NYC design inspired by the movie working girl...

We keep looking to the past for today's design inspiration. What is the look of our time? Not to say the past isn't great, wasn't great, it's just that is it original if we use elements from the past in our designs today? I strive to be different and original but I find it difficult when the past was soo great. I guess being true to yourself and to your aesthetic is the only way to define "good" design. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Also the meaning of this beauty.

Oh how this year has gone by so fast!!! There has been a ton to keep me busy, and you know how it is when you enjoy life, it flies by. But the my favorite time of the year is here. Cooking and eating time. Chris and I have gotten into cooking these last few months and I thought fusion brands has a pretty cool kitchen accessory collection, sure enough to brighten up your cooking. 

Happy Living!

Scotch & Chocolate Soiree for the Hubby

Chris's 25th birthday is coming up and it's time to celebrate!  Nothing major just a small get together with friends and family. Wish we had a bigger place to have tons of people over and tons of fun. For now our handful of friends & family will hopefully be entertained. I fell in love with this manly party design from the Hostess with the Mostess.

Happy Birthday Guppy! Love you xoxo.

Happy Weekend!!!
