Shannon Thomson’s home and her restaurant Mason and Pacific both pair elegance and playfulness. Her refined living room speaks to a classic age, while the auxiliary room and lounge area tend to a fun, frolicsome style. The drift between casual and formal is subtle. I’m loving all the shades of blue and the simple grace in Shannon’s house. The framed pencil drawings of the kid’s toys were done by the nanny– so touching.

Happy Birthday to me! I am going to be poolside thanks to the delightful weather. My mind is torn in what seems to be a million pieces. What I should do, what I shouldn’t do, what’s right, what’s wrong. I constantly focus on being elegant, refined, and gentle. But for tomorrow I will lounge and try to love my chaos, be optimistic, celebrate my femininity, and let this restless hearted child grow a year older. The best is yet to come.

Vorfreude – joyful anticipation.
Quiescent – a quiet, soft-spoken soul

September has its very own elan. Chartreuse buildings help to bring out the soft shift from tilleul the month evokes. The flavescent change in scenery is fresh and invigorating. September flair has come to refresh us. Lovely and flawless.

Starbelly has a plant-filled back patio that is bright and cheery. They serve scrumptious pizzas and dynamo doughnuts for brunch. I am thankful for their delightful deck where I can get all hopped-up on coffee. Starbelly is praise worthy- you’ll leave beaming from the resplendent atmosphere.

Aggregate Supply is a store showcasing locally made quality products. They have bold graphics that harmonize with simple, clean, innovative designs. If you are looking for modern American craftsmanship, Turk + Taylor’s beautifully hand-dyed natural soft fabrics are crafted into designer clothes that you can comfortably live in. I am also loving their office supplies and the textiles on their throws, OH.. and most of all their sweet napping dog, Oscar.
