while all the others were making ships.”

Lighthouses blow no horns; they only shine.

Introducing our new series, Style Profile! For the kick-off we interviewed local Atlantan and self-proclaimed foodie, Rafael Love. His full walk in closet attests to his other love, fashion.

A little something to think about as the weekend wraps up. Here's to a productive, inspiring, and imaginative week!

"You can't depend on your judgment when your imagination is out of focus."
-Mark Twain


Antiques in the Afternoon

I recently spent almost an afternoon perusing antique stores for inspiration and a few items I plan to use in an upcoming project. I wandered through the Kudzu Antique Market, Decatur Estate, and The Fainting Couch

{wouldn't these would look fantastic paired with a white tulip table?}


Hammer & Iron {image + quote = inspiration}

“Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation...
even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind.”
Leonardo da Vinci

“I have a hammer! I can put things together! I can knock things apart!
I can alter my environment at will and make an incredible din all the while!”
Bill Watterson

“If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
Abraham Maslow

P.S. The above photo was taken while I was in my back yard trying to figure out a setting on my camera for an assignment. I had a problem and I nailed it!


Sand & Castle

I first met destination wedding photographer Michelle Castle during my recent trip to Florida for my friend Emily's wedding.  I love the passion and spontaneity Michelle captures in her photographs. Every wedding featured on her blog looks like an incredible celebration of love.

Paris, S'il Vous Plaît!

For those of you who know me well, you know I have been engulfed by wanderlust for several years but unfortunately have not been able to travel. Well, my time has come! I am planning a trip to Paris in August and I could not be more excited. Keep a look out for upcoming planning posts! 

In the meantime, I leave you with one of my all time favorites by Carla Bruni. She is perfect for dinner parties, smoothing ruffled feathers, and lovers.

Westside Walk

Jona recently spent an afternoon photographing the Westside Provision District (part of the larger West Midtown Design District). WSPD is home to on-trend home design resources, art galleries, and variety culinary experiences.

If you are looking for something to make your mouth water check out JCT Kitchen, Bacchanalia, or Miller Union. For something that doesn't hit your wallet as hard there is West Egg, Star Provisions, or Taqueria del Sol.


Be Ignited {Post by Jona}

On a wonderful day in May, I sat in Octane Coffee Bar & Lounge to go through emails and to edit my little gifts of sight for you. The kind barista fixed me a caffeine surprise that consisted of three shots of espresso, chai and something spicy like paprika or red pepper (ironic considering this post). It was quite delish! As I was about to delete the above photograph (because it didn’t go with the theme of the planned post), I realized there was something special about it. The photo had been taken during a drive down to Florida with my friend, Kate, who urged me to pull over to the side of the road and capture it. The scene represents something that, at the time, inspired us to take the time to stop and smell the roses.


Behind the Scene with Wonderlust!
