Low Rider

I always like an easy-to-duplicate look, and this one is no exception… The low shelf makes the ceilings seem sky-high-er. I’d love to place some large framed pieces along that ledge. Photo via Coco + Kelley. I like how the ledge is a continuation of one of the bookshelves. I’ll be keeping this photo handy for the future. Photo via Apartment Therapy. Since I’m always in favor of the DIY…

Shakespeare in Love

First there was this: Lines from A Midsummer Night’s Dream was transplanted onto wallpaper by Tracy Kendall. (P.S. It’s now sold at Anthropologie for $698 per roll. Pricey, yes, but it’s all handstitched.)Then I ran into this while perusing Apartment Therapy: The entire script to Romeo and Juliet is printed on these sheets. Unfortunately, they’re no longer available as Caban, the former home division to Club Monaco (which I <3),>…

I love it when chandeliers are put in unconventional places, like hanging from a tree branch at an outdoor party or in a bathroom. It makes them that much more interesting to look at because they don’t really belong, but they look good. A giant chandelier in the middle of a small kitchen? Why not? I love the way the white pops against a black wall.Not a chandelier, true, but…

Well, this is one of those times. Layers by Hella Jongerius for Maharam While looking for a fabric, I found that she collaborated with Maharam to create the MOST AWESOME FABRIC EVER! Yes, all of those capital letters…

It took us a while, but we finally changed out our Houston Galleria display for the first time in 4 months. We dialed it back and went for a more minimalist approach. Check out the photos below: We got tired of showing off shades of brown. We went for the bold statement route with this modern sectional in a nice pink velvet. Contemporary sectional design with down-blend cushions…can’t beat that…
