orbit chandelier

have you ever seen a chandelier more swoon worthy? i adore the whimsical and unexpected woven shape, and the exposed bulbs (a personal favorite). using a tension/compression design based on the same principal as suspension bridge – i’m certain that illuminating a space has never been more interesting.

cheap and chic

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these modernist bowls by West Elm. I am a huge fan of mismatched dinnerware, but it can be quite pricey to get this look quite this right. Fear not, these are just $8 a pop, which mean the time might be right to get this collection started…

let there be light

A while back I wrote a post lamenting over the loss of my old bedside floor lamp. After months and months of searching I finally found the perfect one!
This is what it looks like (in a gorgeous dining room that I wish was my own…):

take a seat

I’ve always admired Jonathan Adler’s bold colors and design…
(I even have one of his couch and chair sets in my bedroom!) The above
chairs have got me all sorts of giddy – these jewel tones are some of my
favorite for the fall and I can’t really think of a space that wouldn’t be
instantly improved with an accent seat like such…


LOVE these decorative knobs and handles. Perfect way to spruce up an old dresser or add some unexpected flair to an entrance way… The first row is my favorite – I am a sucker for distressed glass!

illustrated recipes

I just spent the evening prepping food for a bbq tomorrow night so you can only imagine my excitement upon seeing these wonderful illustrated recipes after I finally finished in the kitchen. I would LOVE to have one of these framed in the kitchen. Simply scrumptious!
