Hello September: Warming Up to Fall

Pardon my absence yesterday guys. I was too busy hyperventilating to write when I realized it was September 1st. Rue launches in just two weeks and the gals and I have braced ourselves for no sleep, no social life, and no stopping...
But the stress is a very small price to pay for the love, support, and excitement we feel daily from all of you. I don't think I could ever say it enough - from the bottom of my heart thank you!
Luckily there's nothing like pretty styling and interiors to calm the nerves and remind us why we love design in the first place: because beauty in our lives is important and life is in the details!
So yesterday, I temporarily turned off the distractions and urgencies, and took a few quiet moments to peruse the beautiful portfolio of one of my favorite stylists, Todd Moore.
I was instinctually drawn to warm wood, saturated hues (like purple!) and those perfect-for-fall patterns like zebra and tartan.

And I realized, though September has a lot going on, I couldn't be happier to welcome the new season and say hello to crisp autumn nights, fall fashion, apple pie, and of course, my new adventure in the form of Rue!

I'm far from being a lover of fall (I think I've said this thousands times already!), but I might just start liking it because of Rue! I can't wait!

Really funny because yesterday just before going to bed, I suddenly thought I had missed the first issue, then I remembered it comes out in two weeks.

The whole blogland is at the edge of their seats with excitement!

Have a good day. x

Ugh you are so UPBEAT! When I am as stressed as I have been lately I turn into a complete 2 headed monster...I could take a tip or two from you! Happy September! Can't wait for Rue...after I get back from my wedding we are doing another girls night. I dont want to hear another word about it.

Cant wait for Rue and I love those herringbone patterned plates. I am so glad to see menswear patterns back and cant wait to buy my first pair of tie up loafers this fall.

Don't forget to take a few minutes for you -- you deserve it! The Rue team has been working so hard, and I bet you cannot wait to reveal the first issue :)
