It’s Fashion Week in New York and the country’s top designers are showcasing their lines for Spring 2012. Viewing these collections is a great way to forecast what will be in style this spring and to get a head start on the new trends. From what I’ve seen thus far there is a lot of velvet, feathers, sequins, and color: luxury at it’s best.
One of my favorite designers, Christian Siriano, showed his line this afternoon and I must say, I want every single look! You may remember Christian from his season of Project Runway where he took home the top honor.
Here are a few of my favorite looks:

While SpaceSays.com is down for repair, I’ll be posting here on our Tumblr page. So what has SpaceSays been up to…nothing much, just horsing around!
Check out these amazing lamps for my nightstands I picked up for only $30 each at HomeGoods! I’m all about scoring a good deal. Good design doesn’t have to be expensive. Find small details you love and use them in your space to create interest. What do you think about these lamps? Love them or hate them?
Like any space, the time often comes for a bit of renovation or relocation. In order to bring better quality posts and features, SpaceSays has moved to its own website, www.SpaceSays.com!
Be sure to check out the new site! See you there!
SpaceSays isn’t gone! I know it’s been a while, but there’s more SpaceSays to come. Details on the new site are coming soon. For now, follow SpaceSays on Twitter. @SpaceSays

Perfect Spring Salsa
I borrowed this recipe from a friend for this fresh salsa, perfect for dipping or as a topping.
3 roma tomatoes, cored, seeded, and chopped
1 fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
1 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves chopped, stems discarded
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 red onion, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Garlic salt, white vinegar, olive oil, pepper taste
1. Combine the tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro, garlic, onion, and lime juice in a large bowl. Stir the mixture to combine all the ingredients. Taste, and add ingredients as needed.
Sorry for the delay in posts. Things have been busy, and unfortunately Titus has no thumbs and is a crummy typer.
Today marks the 122nd year since the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. While sadly I have yet to visit there, the Eiffel Tower is perhaps my favorite work of engineering and structural design.
Built between 1887 and 1889, it served as the entrance arch for the Exposition Universelle, a World’s Fair marking the centennial celebration of the French Revolution. The tower was much criticised by the public when it was built, with many calling it an eyesore. Newspapers of the day were filled with angry letters from the arts community of Paris. Today, the tower is widely considered to be a striking piece of structural art.

One cannot think of Paris without romantic images of the Eiffel Tower rising up in the background. While its design may not have been appreciated originally, it’s inarguable that the tower today represents romance and beauty.
Check out these prints from Etsy.com of the Eiffel Tower.

I spent last weekend at a friend’s wedding, my second wedding of the year thus far. I’ve been to my fair share of weddings, usually as a spectator, as my boyfriend seems to be in at least two weddings a year. Sitting alone during the ceremonies and waiting for the groomsman’s duties to finish, gives me a lot of time to focus on the little details of each event. If you were to ask my boyfriend he’d probably say he’s sick of me scrutinizing every detail, but I can’t help it! It’s design right? I’m obsessed!
While the wedding we attended this weekend was very nice and classic, there weren’t too many things that really caught my eye. Don’t get me wrong, it was beautifully done and the bride looked absolutely gorgeous, but I don’t feel that many of the details will last long in my memory.
While there may be more weddings to attend in my future, I can only hope that some of the great ideas and styles in the new Styled Magazine, by A Subtle Revelry, will show up at these events.
A Subtle Revelry is the blog of Victoria Hudgins, an event stylist, freelance designer and online DIY editor. I love this site for handcrafted and well styled events. The great thing about this site, is these ideas can be used at more than just weddings.
For someone looking to create great events on a budget, there are tons of DIY ideas. I especially love this paper bunting idea. The photography on this site is also pretty amazing; clean and fresh.
