my cozy crib

at times, during those crazy, head-spinning kind of days, it's sweet to come home and unwind in your own personal space. just thought to share my little cozy sanctuary with you guys. i painted the room a bold and risky peacock blue not too long ago. a little scary at first, but i've grown to love it and the chill aura it gives out. and, as you can also see, i absolutely love scouring flea markets, thrift shops, the ever-so-addicting etsy shop, etc., picking up little one-of-a-kind nic nacs along the way, esp. through my travels. one of my faves is the "Keep Calm And Carry On" poster that I purchased awhile back from sfgirlbybay's etsy shop (thanks again!). at the moment, however, i've been a bit obsessed with collecting fashion mags (current and vintage issues), and soon i'll have a nice little library, oozing of them. whoohoo!

outfit: F21 acid-wash jeans, AA tee, vintage harve benard blazer, H&M lace up booties

much love,
lauren

That blue is the most amazing colour ever, it works so well in your space too. What a beautiful home! I've started to hate that poster through over kill but the red & the blue work amazingly. Awesome blog.

From what I hear the NY topshop is like super super top shop on acid or something, I can't wait to see it (if I ever scrape enough money to go to new york again)

& you liked the shopping in Bristol? Whoa. I guess it's ok, I go up to London a lot so to me Bristols, pretty rubbish! But thanks again & can't wait to see more from your blog! =)
