Wood Grains

I have been swooning over wood grains for quite some time now, and as they have become pretty popular now, its easy to get my fix. They can scream elegance, funk, modern minimalism or contemporary boho. Anyway you play them, wood grains are a great way to play up a room. I've had to limit my own buys to the under $25 category (including the plates and platter from Target and an amazing wood wall panel like the one in Liz Lemons office) but I've added a wide variety here if only for inspiration.

This week

I'll probably be posting the things I'm interested in weekly, cause its always a changing state of affairs. So here's the first of many...

Antique Maps and Old Globes

Rilo Kiley's "With Arms Outstretched" and "I Never"

Evan Williams Egg Nog (surprisingly good)

Wood Grains and Snakeskin

Things I'm disliking this week...

That my phone doesn't get any reception

That my dad bleaches all the towels in my parents' home

Holiday weight gain

Having to work during break

Ok, fine...

I finally made the jump, I started a blog. I'm always a little behind everyone else with this stuff. I put it off for as long as possible, but here I am, designing a small space in my tiny corner of the universe of the internet to speak my piece and etch out a space for whatever moves me. And thats exactly what this blog is about: whatever the hell I want. Fashion, design, music, books, movies, wishlists, etc.

So for a little background info...

I'm 20 years old.
I go to a large top tier public university in the midwest.
I enjoy interior design, folk music, teaching sexual health, the occasional (underage) drink, shoes and hats, dressing to the nines, cooking (and eating), road trips, and art theaters.

So take a meander through my waking life.
