Happy Halloween Ya’ll.

From me and my furry four-legged sidekick {pssst, that’s a jockey}.

A Rose is a Rose is a Rose Cluster.

A fellow designer friend posted a picture she took at this seasons High Point Market showing Arteriors Caviar Large Rose Gold and Ross Glass Cluster chandelier. I freakin’ love it! The fixture is adjustable from 51″ to 87″ in height and is almost 30 inches wide. It exudes a hint of masculinity along with a sophisticated silhouette. Perfect for a tall flyer, dining room or sassing up up a large kitchen island. Finally, that pinky gold gets glam outside of the jewelry box. Who says pink just’s for girls?

Send The Monster Mash.

I am ghoulish over Jib Jab’s creative Halloween eCards. My cousin Lindsay posted one on her Facebook page {the Monster Mash one below} and it was adorable! Check it out! Boo!

Hang Your ABC’s.

Looking for kids wall art ideas today and stumbled across this laser cut wooden alphabet art. I love the letters running together to form a diminutional yet one-peice work of art. Simple. Natural. Smart.

Love the hanging tissue puffs!

Back from the Motherland.

The motherland. That for me – at this very moment in time would be Napa Valley. I was there in mid-October for one of the most important events of my life. The romance and memories will last forever. It will always be the place where I shared my heart and hand. And I am ready to return.

Top Bedside Tables for a Patient of Perfection.

There are three things left to purchase to perfect my bedroom look – an upholstered bed and possibly two bedside tables. I have two great ones now but could use a little discreet storage {ahem}. I’ve given myself to the end of the year to make it happen. I like the symmetry of a bed being squeezed by two of the same thing… It gives me  a sense of order before bedtime. After peeling through the latest Serena & Lily catalog, which just gets better and better, I rest my eyes on the Ceylon Side Table. A symmetrical, functional, and stylish bed side table with storage. Then I thought, but I still like that other one from Bungalow 5. Or that one from Oly Studio works beautifully. I want to experience them all. That’s the fun of being a decorator. An eternally practicing patient of perfection. =)
