Plums for Fall, Inspired by ELM

We know plum (or any shade of purple really) is going to be big this fall. Not sure how to wear it & stand out? Here are some pretty interpretations from Easy Living Magazine:

Loving plum paired with statement accessories & vintage details. Also love the look of mixing different shades of purple. It's gonna be a dramatic fall, people. And I can't wait!

Anna Sui's Black & White Spaces

Loving these rooms from designer Anna Sui's Greenwich Village apartment (featured in the September 09 ELLE DECOR)...
The b & w. The pattern. The texture. The art. The shine. All makes for a perfectly calming & sophisticated space.

Not In My Backyard

Writer Douglas Coupland didn't want to see the architecturally interesting home next door get plowed down & replaced by a McMansion, so he purchased & restored it. It is so charming that it hurts!

Check out a slideshow of the home (+ the amazing art collection it houses) & read the accompanying article here.

Happy Tiers

My favorite type of dress as of late? The tiered dress. So sweetly intricate! I'm impressed by Forever21's impressively versatile selection of tiered dresses:
Reminds me a little of the Spring 2009 Couture collections. The dresses. The tiers. Ah, so dreamy:

I. Love. This.

I'm in love with this home:
So, white walls depress me. Which is why I don't have any. It's also why I was absolutely taken by images of playwright John Patrick Shanley's Manhattan apartment from The New York Times. It's several weeks old, but view the complete slideshow here.

Wow. John Patrick Shanley, can I please move in with you?
