What’s Your Passion?

Moleskine has a very cool new product out for those of you with passion. They are (appropriately) called Moleskine Passions– journals to record the things you love. My dad would probably be into the Book Journal, where he can make lists of books he’d like to read, make notes about books he’s currently perusing, and jot down good quotes. My in-laws would like the Wine Journal where they can write…

Get Your Granny On

Remember when I fell in love with Jonathan Adler’s Bargello pillows? Now, I have a new designer to love! Trina Turk is rolling out beautiful needlepoint pillows in cheerful hues and patterns. A reminder to me that I need to pull out the needle and yarn again and finish that bargello pillow I started several months ago! Lator Gator Pillow, $118 Shanghai Links Needlepoint Pillow, $68 – Unique Furniture…

Drumroll, please…

IT’S A BOY! Here’s a shot of my nugget’s sweet, chubby profile. See you in 4 1/2 months! – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic, Modern Lifestyle.


Books, Books Everywhere!

No bookshelves? No problem! In the latest issue of Lonny, I spotted a couple of strategically placed book piles that looked quite at home despite a lack of formal storage. I rather like the look, with a something-or-another perched on top. Call it disheveled chic! – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic, Modern Lifestyle.

Or Are You A Girl?

So, yesterday I dreamed of a nursery for a baby boy. Today, I’m thinking of a baby girl… These Blabla dolls are so soft. The Lollie Monkey is my favorite! My sister really like the sling carriers from New Native, and I think the pattern on this one is pretty. Trumpette has a ton of cute socks for girls, but Suzie Q’s topped my list! Target did a service to…

Are You A Boy?

So, hubby and I are expecting baby #1! I didn’t want to tire everyone out with baby this and baby that, but since we’re finding out on Friday whether the little nugget (as we affectionately refer to him or her in the office) is a boy or a girl, I thought I could break down and share a thing or two about the way I imagine the nursery to shape…

I’m not sure how their other services are, but they do offer a great interior design service. Here are photos to prove it. They combined 3 units on the 61st…

The Yas Hotel

The interior design for the immaculate Yas Hotel was done by Jestico + Whiles (via Contemporist).   For a cool $250 per night, you can stay at this luxurious 5-star hotel located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.   The recessed wall and ceiling are a great touch.  I always appreciate a nice bench at the foot of the bed.  The ceiling fixture is cool. I love the tone of the…


Photographer Extraordinaire: Ditte Isager

Thanks to desire to inspire for the tidbit on Ditte Isager, an uber talented photographer.  Check out her wonderful interiors portfolio below: I tell customers all the time to put a great, comfortable chaise near a window.  If you like to read, it’s the best seat in the house. A classic, mid-century modern sideboard! White and black always makes a statement, whether it’s apparel fashion or home interiors. Butter leather,…


Modern Tree House

This tree house inspired home was designed by KAA Design Group (via Decordir).  This is a great example of modern design that feels very warm and livable.  The combination of wood, concrete, and glass enhances the natural aesthetic.  A study area that opens up to the outside.  Sign me up for that!  I like the little wine storage that is to the left of the stove.  The bar height counter…
