Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you that if you'd like to stop by my home, I need 24 hours notice. Granted, I've never been a fan of the "pop-in", but for me it's way more about my obsessive need to redesign my space. I am constantly moving furniture, trying new wall arrangements and hauling boxes of accessories down to the basement so I can switch them out with something different. This creates havoc and disarray on a weekly basis at our humble abode and as a designer, it's pretty much my worst nightmare to have someone come to my house for the first time and not be proud of the way I have things arranged and decorated. God forbid someone see my piles of "I'm so tired of this crap but can't part with it" stuff during one of my
gotta-change-it-up fits. Really, I think the problem is that I simply can't afford the things I LOVE. Well, sometimes you get lucky and find the perfect piece at the perfect price...but not often. So, these are the things I'm loving right now...as in today...and if I could just borrow your credit card...yes, you!...I'd happily throw out some of my crap and be so happy with my new purchases that I might not have to redecorate for a few weeks which would give me way more time to blog! It's a win, win situation! Ah well, a girl can dream.
Hello, Lover. I would like to cordially invite you to spend some time with me at you're earliest convenience.
This incredible Anthropologie rug would be so happy in my dining room! Dear me, it's a good thing that we aren't lucky enough to have an Anthropologie store in town because my credit cards couldn't handle it. Case in point, I went searching for this amazing rug on the website and know for certain that the next five items shown below would have crawled into my cart as well! Damn you, Anthropologie! Why must you be so perfectly in tune with my inner-most design dreams?!
This guy is hilarious to me. I know, I know....the owl thing is a bit played out,
but Anthropologie does it so well!
Kitschy and creative and hand made of found items.
Now these I can afford. I'll take 8 please for the thrift store chest I found yesterday and shall paint when it's not 8,000 degrees outside with humidity high enough to keep me soaked. Gray, I just decided...for the chest that is. No, Gray and that limey green in the flower.
What's that? You want to hang in my Gazebo, you beautiful and quirky handmade of recycled items chandelier? Let me check with my financial planner to see if I can afford you...he chuckled and hung up, so I'm gonna take that as a no.
I know! Right?! Anthropologie, you rock.
$15 bucks at French Bull! (Salad servers)
