Green Apple & Pink Flower Arrangements

I happened to come across the May issue of Woman's Day magazine at the hairdresser on Friday and was just so drawn to the cover. It's not a magazine I usually read, but the combination of the granny smith apples and pink ranunculus was just so charming and pretty. I also have an affinity for pink and green. And it would be super easy to do yourself. With Easter just days away, I'm thinking of giving it a shot.

I also love this version of it with peonies (my all time favorite flower!). Look at how grand of a statement you can make with a dozen flowers and two dozen apples. These would be a very affordable DIY wedding flower arrangement.

And for a simpler version, just add some tea roses.
There are few things that make me happier than a beautiful, fresh flower arrangement.

Swooning for Serena & Lily

Serena and Lily's Octavia Headboard has had me swooning all week. It's so simple and understated while still being elegant and showing attention to detail. It comes in 22 fabrics with two choices for nailhead finishes and three wood finishes for the legs creating dozens of design possibilities. I think it looks best in one of the color options as opposed to the neutral fabrics. My favorites are the petal cotton (shown), navy linen, mist linen, and seaglass linen. Swoooon.

Jonathan Adler Nixon Tables

Hi. My name is Sarah and I'm a Jonathan Adler addict. When the email arrived in my inbox last week announcing the new Jonathan Adler Nixon tables, I was pretty excited, but the featured color was brass with a walnut top. Lovely, but it wouldn't work anywhere in my house. Then as though a light shone down from the heavens appeared the picture of the polished nickel version with a navy lacquer top...

that reverses to white! It just kept getting better. I love, love, love these tables. I can surely find a spot to put them. The brass based version has a walnut top that reverses to orange lacquer that is equally as stunning.

The table is also available in a cocktail table version (above) and a dining table version (no reversible top on those) . Personally, cocktails and Jonathan Adler are two of my favorite things so I'm pretty much sold.
