Lyrics I Love: Down By the Water by The Drums

This edition of Lyrics I Love features a song I just recently fell in love with. Its beautiful lyrics about standing by the side of someone you love tug on my heartstrings. It gives me feelings of loving someone no matter what circumstance they may find themselves in. That you'll be there to carry them back from whatever is bringing them down. That you are there for them forever.

I dedicate this song to J, someone who needs a lot of support right now. Love ya <3

Color Scheme of the Month: Grey

Color Scheme of the Month: Grey

STUDIOLAV WEAVE Large Plate / Elizabeth Hurley Zelda cushion silver, $50 / Gus* Modern Harbord Sofa / Jonathan Adler utopia elephant lamp / Toast Terracotta Small Mug, $34 / Signature Linen Bedding

For June's installment of the Color Scheme of the Month I chose grey! I feel like grey can give any room in your home a sophisticated and minimalist look without looking too drab. Just look at that pillow! It will light up any couch, sofa or bed. For a bit of whimsy, place the too-cute-for-words elephant lamp on your end table.

Did you use grey in your home? Let me know in the comments!

Color of the Summer: Mint

color of the summer: mint
From left to right: RBG Minty // Le Métier De Beauté Mint Bliss // OPI Pirates of the Caribbean // Essie Mint Candy Apple // L'oreal Pearl de Jade // Butter London Fiver Mint Green  // Charlotte Russe // Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream

I don't know about you, but I have loved mint nail polish for about 3 years now. It's a color that looks good on anyone and I don't see it going out of style anytime soon (but don't quote me on that haha). Each of these colors are perfectly minty in their own ways. Lots of options for the summer season... and beyond!

What's your go-to nail polish color for summer?!
