Making a Scene, with Nancy Meyers

There are two things that pop up in the design media, time after time; Nacy Meyers, and One Kings Lane. And now, for the first time, the two have collaborated.
Most of you are probably familiar with Meyers' movies; Something's Gotta Give, It's Compliaced, The Hoiday. They have all been hugely successful, and I admit, I've watched them over and over-- to check out the décor. In fact, I think I first realized my passion for interior design when I was 9 years old, and used to rewind back parts of The Parent Trap and Father of the Bride only to take in every detail of the set design.
And now- for the next coupleof days- you can take home a piece of Meyers' collection, inspired by some of her movie sets, and curated exlusivley for the holy grail of online décor auctions, One Kings Lane.

Monogram Etiquette and just being fancy.

(via {this is glamorous} * / Pinterest)

I've always wanted to be fancy enough to have monogrammed stationary. And to speak well, ride dressage and have people think me "a lady".
My love of the F-word kinda holds me back though...

"...Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it."

"What  could  be  more  beautiful  than  a  dear  old  lady  growning  wise  with  age?  Every  age  can  be  enchanting,  provided  you  live  within  it."
-Brigitte Bardot
