My Latest Purchase - Mosaic sconces

One of my walls was in need of a serious awakening and a pair of these mosaic mirrored sconces totally did the trick. With a Moroccan vibe that's so right now they shimmer and shine like a glamorous sequent dress!

Love it! - Desk chairs

I'm often asked about desk chairs, as one that is comfortable yet non-executive looking is seemingly difficult to find. We all know the black plastic and black leather masculine staple - but what about something that has a warmer presence and doesn't scream - desk chair! Well one of my faves is this traditional slatted one from Pottery Barn. Available in 5 colors, with or without arms, on casters and both swivels and tilts - you get everything you ever wanted in a desk chair and more!

Love it! - Antique keys

So this season I saw an advertisement for Tiffany's new collection of antique key necklaces and I was smitten - So classic and charming! Then I saw this set of 7 vintage keys from Pottery Barn and was just as enamored. Ranging from 4-7", hang them on the wall, use as paperweights or if you're daring enough, take the smallest one and use an old long chain to wear as a vintage necklace!

Pottery Barn - (Set of 7) $19

My Latest Purchase - Zebra rug

Well you can probably guess that I tire of my decor a little more frequently than the average person. Thus I like to change certain design elements that cost wise are easily disposable, yet make a big impact - such as rugs, throw pillows, lamps. So after two years it was time to retire my Crate & Barrel bedroom rug, with this fun 5x8 zebra print from West Elm. And at only $279, it's affordable yet makes a bold new statement!

My Latest Purchase - Throw blanket

So I recently hit up the regulars; Pottery Barn, West Elm and Crate & Barrel, but found my new throw of choice at one of my other faves Restoration Hardware. All of their throws are currently on sale and I couldn't resist the price, silky smooth touch or rich golden sheen of the Solid Sand throw shown in the first pic - matches my velvet sofa perfectly. Can't wait to get wrapped up on cold winter nights :)

Love it! - Zebra needlepoint rug

Years ago, Jonathan Adler had colored zebra needlepoint rugs very similar to these from Ballard Designs. Well the trail blazer made way for these affordable versions that pack a similar decorative punch for a fraction of Adler's price!
