You know Mondays, especially ones like today, with rain, cold weather, the threat of snow, yes, I said SNOW people, and just the general “crap, the weekend went too quick” feeling that comes with a Monday? Well, I’ve just been boosted out of this dull-drum of a day by cool designer Carol Ruth Weber of Weberlifedesign who has so graciously just nominated my blog for The Beautiful Blogger Award. I thank her for her kindness and thoughtfulness.
The rules of the award acceptance are to thank the presenter and link to his or her blog, and to nominate and link other blogs that you truly enjoy, re-blog because you just think they’re so awesome and wish you thought of the post sooner, or just genuinely enjoy getting lost in the beauty of the blog they present. Send your nominees a message with a link to your nomination post to let them know how much you appreciate them.
Here are my inspiring design buds, truly beautiful bloggers all:
A Detailed House
Out of the Birdcage
Two Cherubs Antiques
Sadie & Dasie
Le Zoe Musings
A big shout of thanks to all my followers, to anyone who reads, checks in, or “likes” and to all the blogs that I follow for their great inspiration!
For Hilary Swank bigger is not better, and her downtown Manhattan apartment reflects a sense of peace and comfort. “I feel comforted in smaller spaces. They’re more nurturing,” the actress, who appears in the new holiday movie out this weekend titled New Year’s Eve. For the comfort she craves she consulted designer Mark Zeff to create her Manhattan living space. Above, living room decor from Calvin Klein Home, as is most of the apartment’s furnishings.

Bedroom with furnishings from Calvin Klein Home, of course, and featuring vintage lamps and a painting by Carlos Vega. Says designer Mark Zeff: “I wanted to create a place that would give her a sense of grace and harmony.” I think he succeeded. Hilary Swank’s Manhattan apartment is modest, stylish and chic.

Designers Solveig Fernlund and Neil Logan’s Chinatown, NY loft is a statement of simplicity with its openness and fresh minimalist decor. I notice the shoes at the door (a practice we all should incorporate) keeps this stylish apartment clean and welcoming.
Love the open shelf kitchen where dishes offer up great decoration, and the closet door looks like a chalk board. The whole artsy feel is lovely. Check out more pictures and this article at Loft Life.
