Silver Belles

It’s great to have beautiful silver flatware, but to be honest, it just doesn’t get enough face time. I think it’s time for fancy silverware to get more exposure, and, it seems, others agree with me. All the elegance with none of the upkeep… Grain de Couleur Couverts Tea Towel (also comes in fork or knife designs), $39 @ The Conran Shop. I adore this chandelier for a breakfast nook.…

Silver Birch

Before I wrapped my Christmas gifts, I went on a mad search for wrapping paper printed with birch trees. Pottery Barn displayed gifts that way and it was so chic I had to have it! Alas, I didn’t get my wish, but I have seen a ton of birch print since then. Maybe it’s because I’m actually looking for it now. Yes, it’s quite wintery and we are heading into…

DIY Entry Table

Apparently, I’m in quite the Do-It-Yourself mood, because I’ve found another project for myself. Every time I’ve looked for a piece for my entryway, I’ve been looking for a chest or console table, and good looking ones are not cheap. I like this inexpensive alternative. Maybe it’s obvious to everyone but me, but I never thought of getting a cheap table from, say, Ikea, and covering it with a pretty…

I’m Seeing A Pattern…

I love these eye-catching pumps from Dries Van Noten‘s Spring ’08 collection. A-Mazing! It takes a certain eye to be able to combine patterns that to the untrained eye look nothing alike. I may not have that skill, but I think these pattern combinations may inspire me to try sometime! Love the varying patterns on these dining chairs. Very eclectic! (I can’t remember where this photo came from. If anyone…

Border Patrol

The idea of wallpapering an entire room can be daunting, yes? That’s why I love the idea of creating a border around the room. For example… The tile border around the bottom of the wall brings all the colors together beautifully! Photo via Domino. Stay in a suite at Lafayette House in New York and you’ll have plenty to feast your eyes on, including the gorgeous wallpaper making up the…

Kitchen Couture

Stockholm Floral Apron from Anthropologie; Bib Audrey Cupcakes Apron from Jessie Steele. Nothing like a sexy outfit to inspire the urge to bake! Or I could just fake it, pick up some cookies from the bakery, light a cinnamon candle, and throw on one of these babies. Either way… Abigaile Apron from Funktion; Orla Kiely Apron from Target; Wobble Stripe Apron from Cath Kidston. HighFashionHome.com – Unique Furniture and Accessories…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I would not recommend wearing your heart on your sleeve. That has a habit of getting one into trouble. However, wearing your heart around your neck could be a stylish proposition. Observe… Terrible picture, yes, but too adorable to pass up. Necklaces by Aurelie Bidermann as features in Harper’s Bazaar. I’ll take one in each color, please. Thank you. Resin heart pendants by Cara Croninger. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day…

Doin’ It Yourself

I came across this picture on the Domino website (not sure how much longer it’ll be up, be here’s the link regardless). I’m not wild about the fabric choices, but I spied the top of the drapes and thought, “How cool! It’s a four poster bed without the four posters!” Not only would this look lengthen your room, you can hide away within the fabric on cold nights, and you…
