A Hazy Shade of Winter

Over two months without a post. Shameful, I know. I've been busy - I designed a sweet little baby announcement for some very special clients that I hope to share with you soon. And I remodeled a bathroom. We tore down wallpaper and replaced some fixtures. I really wanted to paint it gray, but couldn't find a shade that didn't look depressing. So I panicked and now it's blue. Here's the hue I was going for

I'm looking for a mirror to complete the blue-not-gray bathroom. I'm holding out until I find exactly what I'm looking for. Stalking Home Goods will commence on Monday.

On another note, it's cold. I want to be warm. So I bought gray flannel sheets from Overstock in both an attempt to stay cozy and to establish a subtle gray theme throughout my house (since it didn't quite work out in the bathroom). I really enjoy the snow, but when it's not snowing and it's just plain cold, there's nothing to do but embrace the season. Here are a few more items that would make winter better

Distillation of an Edwardian Fireplace candle by Royal Apothic from Anthropologie. I don't have a fireplace, so the scent of smoke plumes, white birch cinders, clove and amber will have to do. (I imagine that's what the manor from Wuthering Heights would smell like...)

Square Decanter from Pottery Barn - preferably filled with brandy. I've never actually tried it but I keep telling my husband that we should be brandy people because it seems like the New England thing to do.

Colossal Cables Throw by Anthropologie in plum. Texture and warmth. Score.
