Before and After: Blush pink master bedroom

Speaking of neutrals and default colors (please read), my dear friend, Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag and doll shop, recently redid her bedroom and her transformation is stunning. I begged her to let me share it here on Lars. THIS is a wonderful example of neutral done right. She did an all over very blush pink and added in some rust orange, warm woods, and a dollop of black and white. Isn’t it lovely?! Today she’s taking you through the process of the makeover and sharing all the deets.

August Book Club: Fashion Climbing

Happy August! We love an occasional book about fashion, so this month’s book is a good one, and easy summer read too. When the Irish Catholic family of young Bill Cunningham realized he was enamored with fashion, they were horrified. But Bill thrived on fancy clothing, designing hats, and making people and things beautiful! Fashion Climbing: A Memoir in Photographs is Cunningham’s posthumous memoir, detailing his interests as a boy, and big breaks as a young man. Eventually, his career led him to years of covering fashion for several publications as well as photographing for the New York Times.

Relax in your hammock and join us on @larsbookclub as we discuss Fashion Climbing!

Add on rainbow buttons!

Sometimes all you need is just a touch of rainbow, you know what I mean? Not the whole entire outfit but a little nod. We’ve been wanting to try this out for some time and then were pleasantly surprised to see one of our favorite labels do it, State the Label. Great minds think alike, eh?! So, if you don’t want to add your own, there are a ton of cute options over there.

August desktop calendar downloads

Did you catch my bedroom reveal last week? Monica is always so plugged in and used it as inspiration for this month’s calendar desktop. And now I want to frame it and put it in my room. Too meta? I found these two fiberglass yellow rose plaques at the Brooklyn Flea about 6 years ago. I knew I loved them but they hadn’t really found a home…until now. They’re perfectly happy. And now they have been memorialized. Thanks, Monica!

You can download them for your desktop calendar and phone! Read on →
