Chamber Music.

Holly Hunt has just featured new additions to her much adored {by moi} furniture line. The Chamber Chandelier is now on my top favorite list for ceiling light fixtures. Seems as if I have been specifying lots of ceiling lights as of lately and would love to put this in my concepts rotation. Designed by Allison Berger, this fixtures comes in a plethora of sizes from four glass pendants to twenty one. Also available in a dark amber or brown black patina. Stunning in an entryway, over a dining table, flanking the bed, or centerfold of the large living room. It’s much to my ears.

The Lunar New Year.

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Today, January 23, marks the first day of the first new moon of the year – so Happy New Year! According to Chinese Astrology, this one is the year of the Dragon, the only mythical animal in the zodiac. People born in the year of the Dragon are said to be energetic, charismatic, and natural born leaders. Think Joan of Arc or John Lennon. So welcome dragon babies… or future presidents? I’m celebrating this New Year today by saving my money (not in a red envelope however, as is customary and tradition on this Chinese New Year). Saving it for special travels and home furnishings. Of which both I can not get enough of. So here’s to beautiful interiors, dragons, new adventure, and fat wallets.

Hello Milo.

I obsess over tables and lamps. A wee bit much. However, I do hope there’s never a cure for this! =) I am always adding new favorite pieces to my forever long LOVE list. And this round cocktail table from DwellStudio is the newest addition. The warm antique gold 18″ high base and cool 38″ diameter travertine top (or alternate grey shagreen and black iron base) would dress up any living space. It’s aboslutely gorgeous.

Happy New Year World! Or Small Town.

I read this somewhere and absolutely love it’s philosophy…

Resolve to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment.

Happy New Year everyone. =)
