Happy New Year!!!

Since we're not doing anything very exciting or glamorous for this New Year's Eve, I thought I'd compile a group of pretties that scream "New Year's Eve" to me...  Tables I'd love to sit at...  Things I'd love to wear...





The perfect black crystal chandelier for New Year's Eve...









Aren't these black and white chinoiserie plates gorgeous??? 



If I had some place to go other than the living room, I'd love to wear this fun cocktail ring (from here)





And how amazing is this wallpapered closet?!!!   (from Houzz)... 







I could see putting on my "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" dress in there...







Seriously I'm in love with that dress.  (And don't have it btw) but there are so many places online you can find who sell a version of it:





...  But in reality I'll be at home in my pjs...









Enjoying one of these with my husband:









Celebrating this:







Happy New Year!!!  Thank you so much for your support & friendship. You've all been so amazing & your comments & emails mean so much to me.  Have fun & be safe tonight!!!!
xoxo,
lauren


ps-  a little heads up on what's to come in our house this next year:  ORGANIZATION!!  We're hitting the closets, laundry room & work spaces, and are on a mission to make them functional and pretty.  Can't wait!!!

Great choices! That dress looked so good on Kate Hudson.

Hope you and your family have a very happy New Year - all the best in 2010!

Happy New Year and congrats on your sweet new addition. I found your blog not long ago and hadn't checked it in several days. This morning, I woke up and thought I need to see if "Pure Style Home" had her baby :) Don't you love the blog world?! Going from 1 to 2 babies is a busy transition but such a blessing.

Congrats on your new addition! I love all the images you've picked! Happy New Year's Eve!

I just wish I had a closet big enough for a chandelier.
Happy New Year to you & your family as well.

I would say that sounds like a perfect NYE! We'll also be low key and I'm sure I'll be asleep way before midnight! It's been a real pleasure meeting and getting to know you this year, Lauren. Thank you so much for all of your support and kindness. I couldn't be happier about your new beautiful baby and home. I hope 2010 will be just as happy for you and the family. xoxo, Ally

Happy New Year to you and your little guy. I am cleaning and purging every room and closet in our house too. I don't have the patience to do it slowly though. I will be finished in a few weeks. But I plan to follow along here.

Rachel said...

Yay!! Happy New Year and Congratulations on Justin!!! I think that picture of him in his little white bear suit is just the cutest!!
I'm with ya' on the organization bandwagon! In fact, if I can get to it this weekend, I'll send you pics of our coat closet (as I was just thinking the other night that we needed to clean it out!).

But why I'm commenting on this post is that I LOVE those black and white chinoiserie plates! Where do they come from??? I'd love to get some to hand on our wall.

M said...

Congrats!

I'd also love to know where those plates are from. Hopefully its not a one of a kind antique...

Lauren said...

Hi all!! Those gorgeous plates are from "Home, James!" and are $102 each. 877-329-8878

I found them on the House Beautiful website but wasn't able to see them on the Home James website so you might want to call if the price tage doesn't scare you away! ;)

xooxox LOVE THEM TOO!!!

M said...

Thanks for the info.

And thanks for such a lovely inspirational blog :)
