The View Through My Lens: 18

I have lots to catch you up on, so I felt the best way to do so would be through a photo update.  First up, POTC sponsor, Cakewalk Style Shop, had a fab blogger party a few weeks ago to show off their newly-designed space.  Munger Interiors, one of my favorite Houston-based design firms, designed their offices and shop space.  I couldn't get over the metallic wallpapered CEILING.  Such a cool idea!

As I like to do when I have a free moment, I played shop girl and visited my favorite home decor stores.  First up, Found for the Home.  How delicious is this 18th century French settee?

And at another favorite, Kuhl-Linscomb, I spotted a pair of these upholstered zebra chairs.  Conveniently located next to the wedding registry area.  Can I register for these, or would it be in bad taste?!  ;)

And speaking of weddings... we found a venue! The location has 35 peacocks roaming the grounds.   How pretty is this white one?

Since quitting Cross Fit (it was too hard on my wrist, which I've had trouble with for years) I have picked up spinning.  I go to a gym where they turn off the lights and only have lanterns/candles lit during the spin class.  It creates such a cool atmosphere!

Yesterday I got to attend a Sherwin Williams paint color class.  We learned about the latest tools, color collections, and faux finishes.  I had a blast picking out a few new samples, too!

Lastly, I'm so excited about my new Lydali clutch.  Have you guys heard of Lydali?  They sell cute jewelry, home accessories, handbags and scarves.  Each product is unique and handmade, and they all have great stories behind them about the artisans that created them.

Isn't the tassel fun?!  If you like this clutch or see something else on the website you love, Lydali has graciously offered to give POTC readers 15% off through June 9 using discount code TRESCHIC15. 

So what have you been up to?
