Resource Friday

Everytime I go to Cincinnati I always have to make a stop at West Elm. Love this store and I hope one day Indy will finally open one!

I think this hanging capiz pendant light is really cool. I think it would look so cool in a foyer with large ceilings, totally dramatic!

These cast metal animals are super cute and remind me a bit of something Jonathan Adler might do but a heck of alot cheaper. My favorite is the rabbit and he’s only $26.00!

Finally, here’s some cool Lutz & Patmos honeycomb pillows that look like a great winter sweater. They are only $54.00 and a great way to spruce up your couch for the winter!

Happy Friday and Happy Shopping!


Resource Friday

Today we’re shopping at Garnet Hill. And I’m sooo not talking about Garnet Hill because I’m hoping for lots of Christmas gifts from my hubby! (Hint…hint!) Me make a list and bookmark the catalog and happened to leave it in Drew’s office?? Never!!! These items aren’t on my Christmas list but I do want to show off some great things for the home.

The first is the gustav hand knotted wool rug that is $898.00. The colors are beautiful!

Second is the simple rustic bench at $598.00. The name speaks for itself because I love how simple the lines are.

I actually bought the 3rd item! It’s an owl pillow cover for $48.00. I know I said I wouldn’t buy anything else owl related but I didn’t have any owls for Christmas. Ok, except for some ornaments! I mean how cute are these pillows! I got the one in black!

Wait how did this photo get on here? I love everything thing in this photo and I want it all, I love the Orla Kiely wallet, the dress and yes I adore the coat!

Happy Friday and Happy Shopping!

Black Friday and Resource Friday! Can we say shopping?? Today I’m talking about Anthropologie! This is actually what I’d call my dream job, meaning either designing their killer window displays and stores or traveling the world as a buyer for the store, you know a full-time shopper!

First up is the cascara coffee table at $598.00. I think its unique, has great lines and would make a fun statement in the living room.

Next is the crystal votive that is priced $38.00-$58.00. I’m totally into any and all things rock right now and if you’re going to pick a rock why not pick a sparkly one?

Anthropologie has great knobs for your cabinets and furniture. Its a great way to add your own special and unique touch to a piece. I love this calico frog knob for $12.00!

Last we have the piped diamonds tote at $248.00 and the handbasket bag at $258.00. Oh wait!! That’s not shopping for your home that’s what’s on my Christmas wish list!! How’d those get on here? Honey, if your reading…

Happy Shopping & Happy Friday!

Tuesday’s Inspiration

(photo from House Beautiful)

This is my idea of designer dream heaven! A Brunschwig and Fils showroom showcasing my favorite current pattern Ikat!

Do you have a favorite fabric or pattern?

Monday’s Inspiration

(photo source unknown)

This photo came from my hardrive (photos of ideas and rooms I love) and unfortunately I do not know who the designer/owner of the photo is. I posted the photo because I’m jealous! This is probably an area of my house that isn’t as organized as I would like it to be.

I love how the books are organized by color and the baskets and toy break up all the books, so there’s not too much. It would be a great way to get your children involved in the cleaning up too, they could clean and learn about putting the books back where all the purple, green and red ones go! I might have to put this on my to do list!

What area of your house do you wish were more organized?

Resource Friday!

Time to go shopping! Today it’s Ballard Design. Love this store! Its got everything from kitchen to bath to furniture to fabric by the yard and everything in between.

Below is an ikat pillow that is a bit pricey at $149.00 but I love it. I’m currently obsessed with all things ikat!

Next is the montego mirror that is $119.00. Ballard has beautiful mirrors!

Finally something fun, the turtle stool at only $45.00!

Happy Friday!!

Friday is pay day for most of us and what do we girls like to do on payday? We like to shop! I thought I’d start a weekly postings on some of my favorite places to shop for my home. Do I get paid to toot their horn? No way! But I do think its fun to share with people great places to find beautiful things!

My first resource I’m excited to talk about is Urban Outfitters! Did you think they only sold clothes for teenagers and adults in their early 20’s? No way! Their home stuff is awesome and what’s even better their prices are great!

The first product is a metal accordian table that cost a measly $60.00! I’m sure you’ve seen this table at other stores for 5 times the price! Steal!!

This tufted headboard is $300.00 and I’m thinking it might be time to redesign my own bedroom!

Speaking of my bedroom, I actually have the next item. Its the haruki slat bench for $225.00. Its one of my favorite pieces in my house. Right now it’s at the foot of my bed but this bench could easily be used as a coffee table.

Finally, having an obsession with chairs, I’m loving this charcoal dolce chair for $200.00. Can I sniff out a bargain or what? Love the style and love the color!

Happy Shopping & Happy Friday!!
