No. 1 | a cute puppy

I don’t know if it’s because I have a puppy (he’s 8 months now and 80#!), but I have a huge soft spot for puppies! I have been a follower of Wit & Delight’s instagram for awhile, but I’m been ultra excited since Kate got her adorable puppy. The adorable tiny fur ball is quite the model.

No. 2 | cupcakes

We all love cupcakes. I was thrilled when I found this sea salt buttercream & chocolate cupcake recipe on Lady and Pups. I’m always looking for new delicious recipes and I can’t wait to try this one!

No. 3 | lovely interiors

As a designer I am constantly seeking new inspiration. I am in love with this home tour on Style Me Pretty Living. It is a must to look at if you haven’t seen it already. I love everything about it!

No. 4 | calligraphy

I admit I would love to have a talented calligraphy hand, but I don’t. I’m working on it though. It is so lovely and I haven’t been able to have the time, but one day! Here is a wonderful resource from besotted for all those who love it!

Truly, Lindy

Finding vintage pieces that are beautiful is always a thrill for me. You can discover so much different things with vintage pieces and usually find pieces that work great with any design style. I was thrilled when I came upon Chairish. It is a perfect resource for vintage product that is in excellent condition.

It is a place that you will want to spend lots of time on browsing, to see all the unique pieces to be found. Also check out the Chairish blog, because there is always great inspiration on it.

For this fashion design to interior design I wanted to really take the vintage twist on design. Not only did I take the inspiration of the fashion piece, but I also was inspired by the Madeline Weinrib Westley Thunder Cotton RugCheck out all the very beautiful rugs that Chairish offers. All the pieces can be found on Chairish.

Accepting Support

. to grow in relationships .

Accepting Support | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

We all have our struggles that we deal with and support is always needed on some level, no matter the scale or package it comes in. As humans we don’t always accept the support for one reason or another, but it is so important to. It is impossible at times to deal with things on our own, no matter how much we want to. It is one of my personal internal weaknesses to accept support. I tend to hide everything in, because I don’t want to burdened others. I always want to care and support others, but I tend to not want to have to ask for care.

As some of you know (and are probably sick of me telling it) I have a few heart conditions that have drastically changed by lifestyle the last year especially. Each day I hope to be closer to normal life, but as of now there is no end in sight. I have learned this past year that support is desired and sometimes much needed. At times I haven’t been able to do things for myself or felt so tired emotionally and physically that I have learned to accept support. Yes it is still hard, because I don’t want others to have to take on issues that they don’t need, but I’m completely humbled and grateful for all the support I have been given the past year. It has been amazing to see the support that has just showered me, through many people. I have learned the negative side of support as well. I have learned that some people can’t see past themselves, that their comfort scale can be too little to take on other peoples struggles, and/or that they can’t seem to be asked to care for. In those situations I have learned that those are not people I need in my life, and although that is sad it is ok. For those who have given support, even in the slightest way, it has filled my heart with love beyond my imagination. I may not be the best at accepting support still, but I am constantly learning.

Below are a few pieces to help you accept support a little more. If we care for people deeply and accept care we are able to build a great community and support team for no matter what struggle(s) come in life. Trust me life is full of surprises that could knock you off your feet in an instant.

Never Assume: We all make first impressions. These first impressions can leave an imprint on our mind that affect the relationship with someone, no matter how long the relationship is or how deep the relationship gets. Never assume about people. We all face struggles and we don’t know what other peoples struggles are typically within the first impression. You may be surprised by how relatable someone can be to you, or what they have gone through. Through struggle experiences we shape our perspectives of the world. Who know what someone else’s perspective truly is.

Gather Your People: Know who is important to you. Some of those people may disappoint, but with that in mind don’t be afraid to ask for support to know. Even if you aren’t going through something, tell these people you rely on their support. They will be able to bring their best care if they know. Don’t feel discouraged by the people who can’t be there, but find those who can be.

Learn Limits: No matter how strong I like to think I am, I have limits to pain. We all need a hand and learning when we need it is crucial. Don’t ask when you’ve reached your limit, because by then you’ll be so frustrated. Rather ask for care and support prior to reaching your limits. Know your limits though, so you can ask before you get there. Yes, sometimes you won’t know what your limits are and in these moments don’t be afraid to ask. There is never a wrong moment to ask.

Know Your Gut: We all get into situations that question our moral ground. These situations vary from person to person, but it’s important to always know what grounds you and to not stray from that. In these situations where a moment doesn’t feel right, take a step back, and connect with someone from your support team.

It is officially cooling off at my place. Has the chill air settled in yet where you live? My fall closet is in full affect, making the days full of cozy sweaters, soft fabrics, huge scarfs and boots. I love this time of year for all the changing colors and the feeling of just wanting to be bundled up. In the fall I tend to read a lot more so I had to do a reading space for today’s design. I have more books then I have space for, so I personally would love to have a reading room and fall’s cozy theme would be an added bonus. Do you have a spot you love to curl up in and read?

This fall I discovered a new thrill. I don’t know if I am late to the party (probably am), but I discovered grey pumpkins! Yes grey! I was so excited when I found them, that I had to grab one. Before my discover, I wondered what my pumpkins would be decorated with this year, but how could you decorate such beauty? These pumpkins are simple, decorated themselves and great for any of your fall decorations. One tip I suggest is; buy your pumpkins a week or two out so they last longer and still look their best for the holiday(s). Halloween is coming so quickly! It’s not only a quirky holiday, but it’s also my lovely sisters birthday, so it’s always fun. What are your Halloween decoration plans?
