New Beginnings

Within a matter of hours, the new year will be upon us. It feels like this year flew by, and that I was just celebrating 2011. It's always exciting to start fresh and create new resolutions, even if you don't stick with them the whole year. Tonight is all about having fun and relishing in the possibilities of 2012.

I hope everyone has a fabulous and safe night! Here is some inspiration for your celebration:

Intellectual Getaway

I love to read and spend time at bookstores, scouring the rows of isles for new finds. I've also always loved the idea of having a library or "study" in my home. It seems like such a great escape from outside distractions. Architectural Digest online recently posted an archive of home libraries they've shot over the years. If only I had an extra room to put all my books day!

Here are a few of my favorites out of the bunch. You can view the entire slideshow here.

What's your ideal hideaway?

Winter Whirl

I can't believe it's already December. This year flew by! It's so much fun to decorate for the holidays and bring the season's cheer into the home. Even in Los Angeles it's getting cold, which is perfect for lighting the fireplace and drinking hot cocoa. No matter where you live, it's easy to appreciate the little things:
