because...dogs
let's throw in that chair while we're at it...
peonies, please!

Let's be honest, there is no end in sight for my rental days. Which is fine, except if you want to wallpaper something...I know, temporary adhesive wallpaper is a thing that exists, but they don't have these patterns that I'm lusting over. I mean, the dogs?? Enough said.

I'm especially smitten with Caitlin Wilson's newest collection. I've admired her fabrics and decor before (here and here), and the wallpaper is no exception. Someday I'll have a place that I can fill with permanent wallpaper and bold, painted walls, but until then I'll just add these to my Pinterest.

City Guide | New York: Jack's Wife Freda

Tuesday, August 11, 2015


Now that I've been in NYC for a few months, I've had the chance to explore some amazing restaurants. There are almost too many to choose from, but since brunch is one of the most important meals I'll talk about that.

Enter Jack's Wife Freda. This might be one of the cutest and yummiest places I've ever been to. The food is just as amazing as the ambiance. The interior is simple and light, with marble tables (they get me...) and simple decor. The food is American with a Mediterranean twist. Oh and did I mention, it's delicious? Overall, it is a fantastic dining experience and I highly recommend you make it your next NYC brunch stop (or any meal, really). Also, trust me...get the watermelon juice if it's in season.

P.S. As with any amazing brunch spot, there can be a wait, but stop by the bar and grab an iced coffee to tide you over, they have some of the best!
