Buck Wild.

April 3rd, 2013

I’ve been trying to pick a stair runner for my house for a while. Banded wool sisal is the obvious choice, and probably the one I’ll go with, but of course animal print is my JAM and I still think about using one on the stairs. Andrew will throw in a veto on that, I am sure. Leopard is my favorite color, but maybe it’s overkill? How about antelope though? I do love the pattern and have seen the rugs used in so many spaces.  It reads quite neutral and is a little less {cat sound}.



 Bailey of Peppermint Bliss used it in her new living room- how about that green sofa too?




Do you even notice the rug when there are 50 Birkins on top of it? You could lock me in this room and I’d die a happy lady.

I love the grey colorway as well! A little more modern.


I actually ADORE this in a nursery- particularly a boys nursery! So fantastic!


But then there is THIS. Holy hell, yes.


And this…


And I finally found the manufacturer too!


I think I have my decision. :) Except for the pesky husband decor veto…. PLEASE ANDREW?


Eloise Goes To Brooklyn

April 2nd, 2013

I love this little drawing by illustrator Joana Avillez which imagines the child lit darling Eloise ditching her Upper East Side lifestyle for hipster Brooklyn- specifically the Wythe Hotel. It’s hilarious.


I know The Wythe has been blogged ad nauseum, but I actually am hoping to stay there soon as Andrew and I will be making a pilgrimage to the area to see some family and friends who have recently relocated there.  I am obsessed with these rooms. Marble, brick, wallpaper… what’s not to like?







Reynard is the hotel’s restaurant, I love the graphics.

Not to mention the decor…



How about the outdoor patio??? AMAZING!  what a space for an event!


And the interior private dining room… also charming.


Get the look of the Wythe with these pieces:

Fine China.

April 1st, 2013

Holidays always remind me that I totally wimped out on registering for china for my wedding. I mean, I have some nice china, it’s just SOOOOO plain and boring. Pretty, but nothing that feels truly special. I wish I had gone with my gut and registered for the colorful, lovely china that had captured my heart when I walked the aisles with a scan gun and a diamond on my finger. I played it safe, and as I get older I find that playing it safe is NO FUN.

I recently came across this vintage Christian Dior malachite pattern called Gaudron on Replacements, Ltd and love it. Malachite is just the best.



This Etoiles by Bernadaud pattern was the one I fell in love with when engaged.  But in 2004 gold wasn’t popular so I thought platinum was better. #regrets

I still love Constance by Bernadaud, the “Charlotte York Pattern” and one a few of my friends have. So classic. So lovely. Would love this one now.

This mint green and gold Oasis by Haviland pattern is so fresh and pretty and still fiercely on trend! It would look fabulous mixed with another pattern!

Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 7.16.40 AM

Speaking of mixing, how about this combination of Laque De Chine Pistachio and Juliska’s Country Estate, which I adore.

Or Hermes Chain D’ancre mixed with Jasper Conran’s Chinoiserie Green?

What did you register for? Do you still love it? What would you pick if you could do it over again?

Fashion Friday: In the Trenches

March 29th, 2013

I don’t think there is a more iconic fashion staple then the trench. I have been looking for the most wonderful, perfect, last-a-lifetime one (Burberry, of course, HERE- saving the pennies) for a long time. I want to wait and buy ONE and keep it until it’s in tatters.  I love how it goes from casual to dressy and everything in between. It’s crazy sexy too, which is hard for a jacket that is tailored and covers everything up to be.  We all need one.
The ladies that made this coat look immaculate and forever chic:



(Wendy, wearing the trench I am saving for, flawlessly I might add.)





This affordable trench is gorgeous, and I love pairing it with other French staples like stripes, booties and flared dark denim.  Spring perfection.

Adler Love at All Levels.

March 28th, 2013

First of all, can we please have a moment of silence for the new lucite and brass Jonathan Adler line? Specifically the bookcases, for which I’d do unspeakable (possibly illegal) acts?



Most of us can’t swing $2,000 for a bookcase (points to self), but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some truly luscious Adler wares.  As I just found out (am I the last person to this party?) JCPenney has the Adler Happy Chic line and it has some SICK stuff, y’all!!

Lacquer bookcase (comes in various colors too) and side table.  These look line some other very expensive items I use a lot.

A modern grey sofa with fabulous lines.

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.15.21 AM

A totally gorgeous take on the tuxedo sofa- comes in navy too!

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.13.34 AM

These dining chairs are purely awesome- I can see a set around a white tulip style table in a heartbeat.  Also loving this little tray side table.

I have to admit I kinda freaked over the trim on these ready made drapes in white and tan.  You can never find store bought drapes like this… ever! Pondering the white for a shower curtain actually!

More lacquer- this console is GORGE. You could always replace the pulls with brass (if you were me, and had a serious brass addiction problem)

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.12.52 AM

Oh there is a double dresser too. Yeah, I know. It’s awesome.

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.14.05 AM

Cute round pouf (looooove the pattern) and square pouf. Who doesn’t need a couple poufs?

Screen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.11.44 AMScreen Shot 2013-03-28 at 7.12.03 AM

I am digging the crisp, mid-century modern look of this white and wood tv console and tallboy dresser. Great for a kids room too!


I have a little elephant side table like this one and love it, and this vase is classic Adler.
