Lapa, Portugal Apartment








this small apartment in Lapa, Portugal is located in the most beautiful (renovated) 18th-century building. the tile on the walls is all original and so so pretty!

the wide plank floors are fab- and they seem to be unfinished. i love this look, but wonder how hard they are to clean?? could you walk around in socks/barefoot comfortably? what do you think?

doesn’t Lapa look so charming with it’s cobblestone streets? the apartment is a 10-minute walk from the upscale shops and nightclubs in the Chiado district. i LOVE walkable cities! more at nytimes.com

New Orleans Rental House





i am a huge fan of New Orleans. the city and it’s people are so charming and they seem really relaxed. i’d love to rent out this house and invite a bunch our friends. i imagine sitting out back drinking long island iced teas all evening!

This exquisite 7 1/2 bedroom home is located in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, just one block from Bourbon Street. It features two magnificent double parlors, a Yamaha grand piano, delightfully lavish velvet sofas, and a beautiful formal dining room. Artful film posters and original art adorn the walls. Modern amenities, including wireless internet, satellite TV, and a home entertainment system, are blended with old world charm.

braided stripe jute rug



i just ordered this 2 X 3 West Elm Jute rug for my front door. i’ve been looking for a neutral rug for a few weeks and this one was my favorite. the closest West Elm is in Philly so instead i ordered from an Ebay seller. (new with tags & with shipping it actually ended up being $1 cheaper!) can’t wait for it to arrive next week! what kind of rug do you have at your front door?
