Design Bits and Piece Part II

Still reeling from the end of summer
and the frantic race to get the kids ready for school.

Haven't had time to write a proper blog post so I thought I'd share what I've been up to lately.
First off bought this Mecox Gardens chest for a steal for a client's entry while on vacation. Typically I don't purchase on a whim but this was just too good of a deal to pass up.
Here it is in the entry not styled and the mirror needs to be hung but it works ... whew!
Love how the mirror ties in perfectly with the hardware on the chest!
I've also been sourcing a lot of lighting lately.
Thought these pieces were cool and a bit different.
For a play room/boy's room or kid work space

Industrial looking shade with a chalkboard on the inside of the shade.
Chalkboard is not real:(
I've always wanted to use this Branches Chandelier
Gwyneth Paltrow had an even pricier but similar one in her home in the Hamptons prior to her unfortunate unconscious coupling situation.
Here's a pretty alternative that would be great for a girl's room at

I've also ordered one of my all-time favorite large lighting elements for a client from Robert Abbey's Bling collection.

I'm using this chandelier in the dining room of an old stone house with vintage Baker furniture. It will be the star of the room -- can't wait to see it come together.

Oh, and have you ever wondered about the ...

Me too! Check out the article here from Domaine Home. Definitely will be trying the Matouk Sierra Hemstitch (starting at$75). If your local you can purchase Matouk bedding at the Blue Turtle in Wayne, PA:)
That's all I have!
Thanks for reading!!  xoxo
