gwendolyn faith is not a crayon.

Hello, I’m Gwen.

I work in advertising. I play in the kitchen.

I’m part tweenager. (Look at my iTunes playlist.)

I’m part Grandma. (Look at my oversize cardi collection.)

I’m part Romy or Michelle. (Look at the height of my hair.)

As a Christian, I'm learning how to glorify God in the everyday. To live into the status quo, like Jesus' own Manchurian candidate, and seep grace through its cracks.

I wish my life were a musical, but other than that, I’m pretty content.

(No surprise I also like to Yelp.)

Inspired by a painting spotted on Pinterest, Mom created a second work of art to hang in my apartment. Isn’t my mom the best?!

This is exactly how i would love to have my apartment set up. 

Livin’ the dream.

Mom mentioned she’d be game to paint another work of art for my apartment. (Remember the Cocoa and Hearts-inspired piece Mom created for my bedroom?) I submitted this abstract painting as inspiration!

Dipika and I are toying with the idea of pink and gold decor for our apartment’s breakfast nook.

I’m more than a little obsessed with the pink and gold White Faux Taxidermy moose head, similar to the deer head in Jordan’s sunroom. Screams breakfast nook, riiiiight?

And the coffee table! I can’t get over the coffee table.

You might think you’ve found your next craft project posted on the Girls of Lincoln Park, but then you click through and realize you’re being asked to learn to upholster. That’s scary talk, y’all.

When I was home at the beginning of the summer, I spotted a peacock chair in a rough shape at an antique mall. I wanted to track down something similar, but I had no clue what to Google. That’s what to Google: Peacock chair.

The Bertoia Side Chair. After my parents and I visited the Swedish American Museum in Andersonville, Mom and I stopped into the secondhand shop a few doors down. I immediately fell in love with a set of four wire Bertoia Side Chairs, designed by sculptor Harry Bertoia in the 1950s. Even secondhand, the chairs were out of my price range, but I won’t rest until I find affordable mid-century chairs to go ‘round my kitchen table.

Well. I’ll rest, but I won’t buy any other chairs.

West Elm’s Industrial Dining Table. Mom found the table I’d been eying for a much more appealing price at the West Elm outlet in my hometown. Sold! (Sorry, Kitchen Table That Almost Was.)
