Chalkboards may not be the most practical, but dang when it looks this good who could resist!? Also loving this “office sayings” stamp. We would be rolling the “I need coffee” on everything! Gold stapler….enough said.


Now this is a notepad we really need! Helps you stay on top of all of your social media outlets daily- genius! We’re  coveting every item from Russel + Hazel’s shop, but especially adore their perfectly styled storage supplies!get organizedWe’re all about the multi-tasking around here, so what could be better than a tea towel that doubles as a calendar! Really loving the idea of storing all our notepads & pens in these simple and stylish glass boxes. Simply putting items in a designated box just makes it seem less cluttered…..

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Yay! It is December! Although these days it seems Christmas begins in October, we now feel that we can officially begin getting into the wonderful Christmas spirit. We absolutely adore Christmas here at B&A, but we must admit that it is our second favorite season, our first being wedding season of course! This past weekend we had fun pulling out all of our christmas decor and are looking to add some new fun pieces to our collection. We thought we would share with you all some of our favorite new Christmas decorations we found that we are oohing and awing about!

Interior Inspiration: Hip Home to Haute Wedding

We’ve mentioned many a time that we gather inspiration from everywhere; music, fashion, books, products in stores, people on the streets, and of course interior styling! We admit that we have neglected our interior lovin’ a bit on the blog. Hence, we’ve decided on a fun new post that takes one picture from a home (could be of a bathroom, living room, bedroom, garden, etc.) and transform it into wedding/party inspiration!  Today is this lovely shot of a golden mustard, grey, and blush bedroom full of texture…


Gold & blush are big right now, but I love how the addition of  the deeper grey shade makes it  a more unexpected color palette. Had to have a ruffly dress & cake  to bring in all of that great texture. Rad that this combo could go for both soft & vintage inspired fetes or modern and romantic weddings! I dipped my toe into both on the board below for a nice mix.


What do you think about interior inspiration? Are you drawing inspiration from home decorating for your big day? Share with us any pics & projects if you are!

Friday Feature: Stone Cold Fox

It’s no secret that we at B & A love fashion and  judging by all of the questions that come pouring in asking us about clothes from shoots- all of our readers do too! We were so excited when we got to use pieces from Stone Cold Fox‘s amazing clothing line for our California Dreaming shoot and would love to share more of their killer looks that are perfect for laidback weddings, rehearsal dinner celebrations, your beachy bridesmaids, and really any occasion!

Stone Cold Fox first landed on our radar when we spotted this wedding where the bride donned a Stone Cold Fox creation for her big day. Not to mention the bride’s sister is one half of the Stone Cold Fox dream team, Cyd & Dallas.

The gorgeous bride below also rocked a SCF gown for her nuptials! Love how their dresses look modern & vintage all at the same time. And who can resist that lace back?

Some pieces we’re loving and think would look ahhhhmazing incorporated into the big day or a lover’s vacay…

Bridesmaids in black or white for a bohemian & effortlessly chic look!

Lovely lace creations perfect for honeymooning or a get away dress at the end of the night!

The Stone Cold Fox ladies just launched a new line…for home! How ridiculously cute of a gift would their lace bedding and pillow shams make for newlywed friends!? We’re all about adding some romance to our bed skirts!

Dying how dreamy that looks! Need to order those pillow shams now…..

Deck The Halls

With Christmas just around the corner, Its time to pop in that favorite Christmas album, (Michael Buble – Christmas) dance and prance around the house, and decorate like Santa’s little elves. One of the most wonderful parts of the holidays is transforming your home into a winter wonderland

This year rather than Decking the halls with the customary red and green, Im giving Christmas the shine that it deserves by guilding the halls in gold. Here are a few picks for my home Christmas decor, If only in my dreams…
