loving lately


Just checking in to share a few loves lately. Like 

Natural movement in stone
Sun shadows
Gold fixtures + faucets
B+W art
Vintage glass
Pretty desserts

Just paying the inspiration forward.

I have long admired Athena Calderone of Eyeswoon and her inspiring kitchen with open shelving dreams, wall sconces to die for + all around swoon-worthy yumminess. Of course, I'm also loving her podcast "More Than One Thing." If you haven't taken a listen yet, do yourself a favor and do so asap.

I also saved this stunning kitchen nook of friend + designer Kelley Vieregg. I always love the simplicity and beauty of a tulip table, a built-in banquette and striking B+W art. 

This vintage glass inspiration is from one of my personal Instagram favorites Ashley Kane. It is definitely motivating me to take a trip, virtual or otherwise to do a little vintage shopping. 

And though my recent Valentine charcuterie may not have looked quite as amazing as Athena's kitchen spread, I enjoyed making beautiful food in February to enjoy with family. 

My most recent discovery for baking inspo + visual candy (literally + figuratively) is Zoe Bakes. I just watched her tutorial of creating a rustic Pavlova (a twist on this tutu-shaped meringue-magic dessert), and I'm ready to dive in.

What's been inspiring you lately? Do tell. 

Happy March ya'll! xo

fall mood + current crushes

hey all. i hope you're well, staying healthy and able to seize the season and enjoy a little fall. i love these crisp mornings, colorful skies + cozy feels. i've been writing some fall-inspired blog posts over at Isabella, so link on over and take a read for inspiration. I often share my latest musings on Instagram, but thought i'd gather a few random thoughts + finds here.

A prop stylist is always foraging, and fall is the perfect time to bring the outdoors in. i love finding fresh branches with architectural shape + interest. As for my fall mood 2020, this collage gives you a hint ...

Fall Moodboard - Patti Borrelli - Isabella Style Studio

Feeling those neutrals, sunlit and candlelit good vibes and pursuing simplicity in interiors + in style. Gathering fall on daily walks in nature. And striving to see the beauty in the every day.

{and these yummy candles too}

i've been pinning fall inspiration + better yet trying to live it. As always, i'm drawn to heirloom pumpkins in shades of white, mint green and pale pinkish orange. 

and finding some inspiration in Boone visiting my college daughter Sofia. This is one of our favorite go-to's for plants + pumpkins - The Mustard Seed Market.

i'm loving my girl's minimal apartment aesthetic + her passion for organic living. Follow along on her Instagram for healthy recipe ideas + organic style inspo.

i found a few more pins that have me craving to create, paint + style spaces. 

Always + forever inspired by Athena Calderone {Eyeswoon}And currently obsessing over some particular podcasts, like "More Than One Thing," "How I Built This," and Domino's "Design Time" to name a few. Especially into the episode featuring Jenna Lyons. Such a style icon! Plus that pink sofa. So good! Here's the link to the episode if you haven't listened yet.
