More From RUE

I hope you all had a fantastic three-day weekend!!  I'm running SO late today, that I don't have much time to type, but I do have more eye candy from the latest issue of Rue for you.

Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse

I finally had the chance to upload the photos I took of this year's Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse.  I was so lucky to get a preview of the house...a huge thanks to Anne Wangman who took me through the space and Amy Carman who organized the tour!  I'm super excited for the house to open to the public on June 4 because I know everyone will be blown away by the incredible work this year.  I don't want to spoil the whole house, so I selected a few of my favorite spaces to share with you today...they are all so incredible though, so if you're in the Milwaukee area for the month of June, be sure to take some time for the tour!

Pretty amazing, huh?!
Have a great weekend!

Farmhouse Restoration

Sorry for my absence yesterday...Blogger wouldn't let me log into my account.  Anyway, what I wanted to share with you was this restored Farmhouse from the latest issue of Rue.  The renovation of this property was such an incredible project that the owners undertook and the result is breathtaking.

The pairing of neutral, classic furniture with ornate accents like the coffee table and mirror is really successful here.  I'm totally obsessed with this room.


 Great contrast between the modern chairs and the reclaimed wood table.

 This is a perfect example of how you can create an all white kitchen that still has warmth and depth...paint the walls a warm shade and accessorize with pops of color.

 Beautiful tiled floor and white and wood accents.

I'm absolutely in love with this photo.  How incredible would this be enlarged and framed?!?

Kate Spade Goodies

Kate Spade has always been a favorite of mine...from her wallets and handbags to shoes and jewelry, I love it all.  I'm still patiently awaiting the release of their entire home line so for now I'll continue to lust after these goodies...

I really NEED that black Sophie tote for work :)

Side note: this week might be a little lean on posts because I brought a new puppy home over the weekend...He's a high priority at the moment!
