Love it! - Teapot

As soon as I saw this ribbed glass teapot at Williams Sonoma I knew I had to blog about it. Reminiscent of Cinderella's glass pumpkin coach, it evokes a feminine and whimsical vibe, perfect for tea with your girlfriends!

Love it! - Crate & Barrel Lamps

Lets face it, for a while Crate & Barrel's lamp selection was, well, a little on the boring generic side. But to my surprise, they've really stepped it up and diversified their collection with different and interesting styles, silhouettes and materials. Much more designer and unique - I now can't decide which ones I love more!

Love it! - Faux-bamboo lamps

How great are these metal table and matching floor lamps from Seascapelamps.com. I love the duality of making faux-bamboo out of a modern material. What a wonderful way of taking a material like bamboo, with such history and making it contemporary.

Love it! - "An Affair With a House" by Bunny Williams

I've seen a lot of "Home Design" coffee table books, but this one by far takes the cake. Bunny Williams a renowned Interior Designer chronicles the 20 year affair she's had with her Connecticut home shared with husband John Roselli, an antiques dealer. Through the past 20 years, they've designed, redesigned, renovated, expanded and expanded some more to the point of having the home of their dreams. My dreams too! It's an amazing book taking you through each of her rooms along with entertaining and gardening tips. It's more than a book about a house, it's a book about a lifestyle!

Love it! - Chinoiseries by Bernd H.Dams

This is one of the most stunningly beautiful books I've ever seen. Originally released as a collector's item for $1,100 due to its master watercolored renderings this affordable reprinted version for $37.80 has finally been released. Featuring the most gorgeous variety of pagodas, Asian structures and architecture along with written historic commentary, this book would make for a beautiful present or if you dare to cut out some of the prints, frame them as art.

Love it! - Jonathan Adler duvet cover

Love this reversible duvet cover by Jonathan Adler. A classic woven pattern, almost bamboo like, but in a neutral brown - it adds just enough design interest without screaming.
