Fabulous Inspiration: Laura U Collection

So, Thursday was a tad frustrating.  First, my purse broke - and it is only a month old, plus it wasn't cheap (well, I guess it was, but the price didn't match the shoddy quality).  Then, Anthropologie didn't have the vase I was ogling online.  But, really, this was nothing because then I WAS REAR ENDED by a Houstonian.  Happily, I'm okay (except for some lingering neck pain) and the other driver is okay and my rental car is okay-ish.  The other driver's car has flip up headlights that now permanently wink, but this is me not caring.  To top off the day, as you know, blogger was acting wonky and deleted a whole bunch of lovely comments.  And fellow bloggers can attest to how much we (at least me) live for nice comments. 

But there's an upside.  In my cruising about the city of Houston I have found a great deal of inspiration, like the Laura U Collection, a storefront to compliment designer Laura Umansky's design studio.  Check out a few of my favorite spaces from her captivating portfolio.   



  1. Oh, no...I hate that you were rear ended. See, I told you I'd rather drive in NYC!! I hope that didn't keep you from going to the Menil. I love the striped rugs in your post today. They're luscious.

  2. you did have a cruddy day! Glad you're ok though. On the up side, I love these images! Especially the first image with the tulip chairs.

  3. Sounds awful, but glad Laura U collection put a smile on your face. Love the light fixture in the top photo. I'm smiling now too...

  4. I hope the pain won't linger :) Sorry to hear that. I hope your weekend was better?


You've made my day - I love hearing from you! I approve comments only to keep out the spam, so don't worry if your comment doesn't pop up right away.
