So colorful and so cute! The Plastic Bag Pendant Lamp. I can’t even tell that it’s made from plastic bags! The Round Flat…

Historic House, Redone

This 1930’s house in Washington is simply gorgeous. It belongs to designer Ted Tuttle who brought the house “back to life” with some interior and exterior remodeling, lots of white paint and a beautiful mix of furnishings.(photos from Elle Decor) Mr. Tuttle completely re-landscaped the house and revamped the picket fence. Love the picket fence. The living room is so bright and beautiful. LOVE the floors.  (daybed is from Mies…

White Light

If the selection, placement, and combination of objects underlay the art of interior design, then Marie Olsson Nylander’s waterfront haven is its ideal iteration. A bright, clean, and white palette forms the playful backdrop or carte blanche to subsequent bursts of color, from turquoise to shades of orange. Combine this with ingenious configurations—humble, modern Eames chairs situated beneath an overwrought and sizable table, lit by an overarching floor lamp (in lieu of the…

True Blood: The New Compton House

I love True Blood (every Sunday night on HBO). I love Bill Compton (played by Stephen Moyer who is also married to Anna Paquin, who plays Sookie on the show). And I LOVE the remodeled Compton house (set) on True Blood! In seasons 1-3, the Compton house was severely run down and looked ready to be torn down but season 4 brings us the new, fabulously chic Compton house.(photos from…

Maldives, I Love You!

 One word…Maldives… I remembered looking at a list for the “Most Beautiful Island in the World”, and the Maldives was ranked at #1.  So for the last few years, I always picture the Maldives when I want to think about impossibly happy, exotic vacations.  Apartment Therapy did a quick write up on the Conrad Hotel recently, and it compelled me to share some of the tear inducing photos: *tear* This…

Groovy Gal Designs

I love checking out local artists/designers on Etsy. Today I came across Groovy Gal Designs and I LOVE her artwork! She sells her original paintings and other “groovy gifts” through her shop on Etsy, as well as her own website. Her paintings are so colorful and so fun. It’s an added bonus that she is a local artist because I do enjoy supporting our locals whenever possible and I think everyone should…

Old Treasures With New Pleasures!

I always wonder how people use antique pieces in their home. Finally, I have found some photos on Miss Design‘s blog that really exemplify how one should display these antiques. It’s a really great inspiration to be able to look at how someone created something that may have been useless and now it’s very useful to them. Looking at the photos below, it is like playing an eye spy antique’s…

The Safe House

Originally I heard about The Safe House when a friend of mine sent me an email about The Zombie Proof House (they are the same house)… I must admit, I do have an irrational fear of zombies which is why she would send me an email that is zombie related. (^_^) Anyhoo, the house is incredible and not just for it’s anti-zombie potential! It was designed by KWK Promes to offer…
