Inspiration

Happy Monday! Yesterday my mom and I went to the theater to see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), the completely hilarious play that takes 3 actors and attempts to condense all 37 plays into 2 hours. Lots of awesome accents, quick costume changes, and nerdy Shakespeare humor (read: right up my alley. Did I ever tell you about the time I read Macbeth in 3rd grade?). The 2nd act involves a lot of audience participation, and yours truly was pulled up onto stage by one of the actors during a scene that breaks down Ophelia’s character. I don’t want to spoil it for you, because it is truly worth seeing. My mom and I had actually seen it in London about 10 years ago, and we have been laughing about it ever since, so it was fun to see it again and see if it lived up to our memories of it (it did!). I think our new tradition will be to try and see it in a different country every 10 years (that’s cool, right Mom?).

Anyway, it was a great weekend, but as usual Monday came around too quickly. Here are some drool-worthy interiors to start your week off right:

Wine cork Eiffel tower, oh. my. god. Do windows like that really exist anywhere in the world?

Those dining chairs are the same as the one behind the desk in the photo above, I just noticed that.

Is that pastel canvas not the most beautiful thing in the world? I love that floating white credenza, too.

Amazing mirror. Like I needed to point that out.

Can I buy a radiator for decoration?

You had me at “striped rug,” “Eames chair,” and “sawhorse desk.”

Süsk posted this from her old apartment in Paris, and my heart just exploded.

So, I’m trying something new this week, and posting something EVERY DAY. I might be over-extending myself and if the content isn’t up to par, just let me know. Maybe being a degenerate blogger works better for me, who knows. See you tomorrow!

  • Yeay to posting every day! I’m trying that too, as you’ve probably noticed. Looking forward to read more from you. I saw the Shakespeare thing about 15 years ago in Piccadilly Circus, it was hilarious. Would be funny to see it again :)

    • It’s a good habit to get into, isn’t it? It seems like you’re adjusting to it really well, too!
      The Shakespeare play was really funny, but was funnier in London when we saw it all those years ago. There’s just something about the Bard being performed in a British accent.

  • Yay! Posting every day is a great idea! I sometimes find it difficult to generate ideas but when you got ’em use ’em! Perhaps one of your posts this week can be of your new bangs you said you would get?????? :) Are we, in fact also bangs buddies?

    • I’m worried about burning out or posting boring content just for the sake of posting, but hopefully this week will be interesting enough :) You’ll have to let me know if I should scale it back and go for quality over quantity.
      And we ARE bangs buddies, too! I’m doing a big reveal on Monday, haha.

  • These are great! That staircase looks like something from a fairytale! :)

    • Isn’t that magical? Makes me want to move to Paris even more than I already do!

  • how cool is that Eiffel tower?? oh my.

    • I know, right? I want to chug a bunch of bottles of wine just to attempt this, haha.

  • so pretty. i love the radiator room and the striped rug room.

    • Too gorgeous. I wish I had radiators like that one.
