Currently Obsessed With...

Black lamp shades over a light colored base. Ooh, and add a little gold lining for shimmer.

If I get to Boston, I'm definitely heading to Hudson, where these two pretty lamps are from.

When One Door Closes....

Another is sure to open. Let's hope so with all the sad closings in the design industry. But life marches on, you best march on with it. I think bloggers will have a huge influence and fill a void for years to come, especially with the lack of resources for inspirational interiors. So I'm going to try to do my part part to keep the fire lit.

Snow Day

With it snowing and sleeting outside paired and the sad news of Domino Magazine closing, I think I need a snow day. I love this boy's bedroom from House Beautiful. Please don't close as well, HB! They'll be nothing left.

I was soaking in this tub right now. I apologize for the total lack of posts lately. Feeling veeeerry pregant as I'm officially in my third trimester and keeping my nose to the working grindstone. But I'm lining up some (hopefully) great posts.

I've been loving everything pink for a terrific table setting. Pink glasses,a must. I've got to track some down. And of course, a fabulous pink tablecloth wtih some monogrammed lines to top it all off.

Speaking of dresses

I want this little number for my Gigi. With some cable pink tights, she'll look so cute! Ok, back to interiors.

Dressing Room

Before I could even scroll down, Beach Bungalow8 already read my mind and turned this dress into a room. Fabulous color combo for the New Year, no?
