Kate Spade makes me smile...

The best thing about having an iPhone is all the accessories that go with it. Check out my new favorite iPhone/iTouch cover from Kate Spade. Tell me this chic little number won't put a smile on your face everytime you pull it out to use it...

What's new on my Tivo?

So my favorite new TV show that I recently discovered is Man Shops Globe. Keith Johnson is a buyer for Anthropologie who travels the world looking for amazing finds. From antique shops to flea markets with so many incredible artists in between, tuning in for the Keith's hunt is definitely worth it! Don't forget to check out Keith's Quick Picks, which catalogs many of Keith's shopping stops.

Another one bites the dust....

...so how many left does that make? Metropolitan Home announced that they too are closing their publication making December's issue their last! And they will also be closing their online umbrella site, PointClickHome. We've only too recently said goodbye to Domino and Southern Accents to name a few, and now Met Home. The days of glossy page-turning inspiration are rapidly dwindling. Good luck Elle Decor - we're rooting for you...

October Etsy Faves

There are some super-fab finds on Etsy right now that I just had to share!

I know we've seen this Dorothy Draper dresser before, but I'd still love one...


A tres-chic vintage Syroco mirror from andfoundfurnishings...



A fun and fancy man silhouette from ModishVintage...

At $900, this antique sofa from Summerland is a great find. I'd love to reupholster it in a plush velvet and top it off with fun, fuschia pillows...

A faux bamboo coffee table with hig-style caning from thevintagesupplyco...

I nabbed this vintage Lenox canoe bowl from High Street Market for a photo shoot...

Artist Rene Norman

Check out artist Rene Norman, who I recently came across. I love all the shapes and colors, especially the pink!





The perfect place to...

get away for the weekend! This Santa Barbara estate is currently for sale, and while the $11M pricetag is definitely out of my budget, a girl can dream right? What an amazing place to just soak up some sun and enjoy a private beach.

What can I say other than Helen Amy Murray's work is incredible. Her amazing 3-dimensional take on interiors and furnishings brings a fresh look and new perspective to tried and true, timeless pieces. Here's a small sampling of her creations....

Her Victorian peony tub chair....


A leather wallhanging with various patterns....
The Peacock tub chair....

And her Oriental Flower wallhanging crafted from felt....

On the Boards...

My last couple of months have led to very erratic blogging, the result of a cross-country move in which I returned for good to my hometown of Los Angeles. And while I've been rediscovering my love for sun, palm trees and LA culture, I've also been redesigning the interiors for a swanky to-be Las Vegas penthouse .

Here's some photos of the flat that I am in the process of turning from drab to fab. Check back for the posted photos of the presentation boards I created for my clients to give a little clue where the project is headed...

Reinterpreting the Birdcage...


New from The Conran Shop, this outdoor Palm Tree Lantern is a new take on the vintage birdcage, and I absolutely love it!

Sweet on Etsy...

Nearly a month since my last post - yikes! A month of many Did's and Did Not's....I'm in the process of relocating back to my hometown of Los Angeles from Philadelphia so things have been, well, overlooked along the way.

Nevertheless, I was revisiting some of my Etsy faves and thought I'd share a few. Who doesn't love Etsy?

Silhouette Blue just makes me swoon...so beautiful and a wonderful quality, and of course she'll do it all custom...


This silver wire bowl from High Street Market is a steal at $18, and it definitely has that modern William Platner feel.


Sugarloop's wonderful prints are so quirky and fun...


How can you not adore Prince Design UK's collection of ceramic birds hearts and flowers? So very sweet...
2Pear's cheeky shipping tags...


and Whitney Smith's beautiful, understated pottery...
