gemini grace: feeling girly


i’m a gemini through and through and frequently blame my astrological sign for my complete inability to choose one personal style. i’m always going back and forth between something light-hearted and girly and something darker and more “serious” (which is relative when it comes to my style), so this morning i thought i’d do two roundups: one for my light side and one for my “dark” side. i’m kicking things off with the cheerful girly roundup because, well, who doesn’t love a little color in the morning?

[image above, clockwise from top left: colorful opinel knife set $68 (makes for a colorful cheese plate!), studded suede mini bag $29.99 (i just bought this and LOVE it), barbie wall calendar $13.99 (i'm not normally a barbie girl but i love these old-fashioned fashion illustrations), striped studio patro tea towels $22 each (i am a stripe FANATIC), white dot tumbler $19.99 for 8 (i bought these in stripes and dots and they're perfect!), russian tulips necklace $98, recycled pine wood console $899 (i'm imagining this piled with color-coordinated design books), arched table lamp $585, chrome tufted chair $1400, striped fabric tape $7 each (i just bought these for d*s craft projects!)]

As a fellow Gemini I know exactly what you mean if I was Rich I would have 2 Houses to show both sides of my Nature the frivolous and Girly Side and the Austere Grownup side, by the way love the Pink Chair.

i hear ya. people always ask me what my dream house would be and i always have to say, “houseS”. i need a colorful fun modern home and something more country, laid back and loose.

I guess the biggest challenge is knowing how to create a balance of both styles in one space. It’s such a task balancing my love of mod, minimalism, and black & white with my other love of bling, bold color and ostentation (in a chic way of course). Sometimes I want bright & bold fuchsia, and sometimes just a clean grey will work. Tis life :)

SUCH great picks….love that bag & that gorgeous necklace….love also that the mix is high end and lower priced pieces. Can’t wait to see the “dark” side! :)

I blame my being a Gemini for that too. One half of me loves the girly girl stuff, the other loves modern and clean.

Makes being a designer interesting!

Love everything above…bar the Barbie pink chair…I’m more of a Magenta girl myself ;)

I’m Aries and have the same struggle but usually make fast choices and end up with EV’rything.
Love your choices for design but have to wonder about function on a lamp of that price that uses a mere 25 watt max bulb!

Renee

I struggle in a similar way in terms of design. I love bits of everything it seems! Anyhow love this girly round up!

Torrie @ a place to share...

love the tape, the barbie calendar (since Toy Story 3, my daughter has become a huge Barbie fan!), and the tumblers (thankfully I just purchased new tumblers- so I don’t have an excuse to go out and buy more… but that price!! hmmm…:).

Geeta

Oh wow!

Thank you so much for including the necklace I designed for Terrain!!!

I’ve got goosebumps seeing it here!

kate

that pink chair is fantastic! Wow, I already started thinking about where I might but this– I need to be a gemini too…. with a better “frugal” side!

Ana

These are such well edited choices. Just girly enough not to be over the top…or so says my insanely girly Capricorn self. Is that an oxymoron…?

Emily

Oh, I might have to make trip to our local Target for those polka dot glasses. So cute!
