Love it! - Pottery Barn baskets

I love nothing more than a uniquely woven basket. Whether it's being used to store wood logs, newspapers, flip-flops and beach toys, or a gorge house plant, generic storage containers are so passe. Find a woven basket that makes a statement with that special woven pattern and silhouette.

Love it! - Metal Mirror

As soon as I saw this metal mirror from Ballard Designs I knew I had to blog. I love the juxtaposition of the soft and feminine design of the flower petals with the hard industrial feel of the metal and rivets. This combination adds real design interest and complexity to a space. Unlikely mirrors are the best way to make a bold statement in a subdued room.

Love it! - Pedestal bar table

I've always loved the idea of having a bar height table in my home - like in a breakfast nook? There's just something fun about sitting on a bar stool and eating at a higher altitude! Personally it reminds me of the high-tables at my local mall's food court. It's kinda like the difference between sitting in a Sedan versus an SUV. It changes your posture and you suddenly find yourself sitting taller in your seat!

Love it! - Ikat tray

It certainly doesn't look like Ikat is going anywhere. Over the past few seasons, from fashion to home decor, Ikat has ruled the shops and runways and for good reason. Its patterns and colors are grounded in tradition yet exude a wonderfully fresh appeal consistent with current trends - Bravo!
