favorite things: wrist gear

a person's favorites say a lot about them.  favorite pieces of art, favorite books, music, accessories.  today i'm going to highlight a few of my favorites, but i want my next favorite things post to be about your favorites!  

 a wardrobe can be a great way to express your identity or figure out someone else's style.  i realized that my style can be pretty succinctly summed up in the 3 things i wear on my wrists.  here they are and here's how i translate them into my interior design style:

1- leather bracelet: a little bit old and worn, full of character, and patina.  =  vintage leather lounger.

2- woven friendship bracelets: colorful, textured, a little bit bohemian, a little bit craftsy.  =  a funky, geometric pillow and eastern-inspired parsons table.

3. white slap-bracelet watch: clean, bright, somewhat futuristic, with a touch of silliness to it.  = futuristic-looking lamp and bright, funky vases, both with curvy, whimsical lines.

put them all together and whaddaya got? my style in a seating area. behold: 

so here's the new game: you show me your favorites and i'll design a mini-board for you!  either send me a link to or just email me [satsavage@gmail.com] pics of a few (3 or 4) of your favorite things and let the fun begin!


inspired: blushing rose

as i was out walking yesterday, i couldn't help but notice how beautiful the shade of blush was on this rose.  

blush is a great way to add a touch of femininity to a room.  but depending on how it is styled, the color it can run the gamut.
from hyper-feminine and pretty
to adorable homespun coziness
to straight midcentury funk (note the blush wall-coloring) 

personally, my favorite way to style it would be a combination of all three.  a little retro, a little feminine, and a little tough.

how would you style your space with blush?
