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.

Since I’m always in favor of the DIY…

Good Books

Apartment Therapy is holding a Design Showcase, and the above photo is the Good Books Shelf by Jason Neufeld. I really love this design. Incredibly simple, yet stunning. Another lovely item to put in my inspiration book for when the Mister and I get a house. It’ll be happening sooner than I originally thought and the thought of it makes my stomach turn slightly!

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),>…

Chanda-where?

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…

Yes, all of those capital letters…

The Galleria, Part III

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…
