Ok... remember how I showed you this credenza from Room Service as the inspiration for my bedroom.... Well, its $1800. So - its way out of my budget. THEN.... I came across this beauty on ebay - totally in my price range at $295 BUT... the freight charge is so out of this world its bringing the total way up!! Like way.... way.... up!! So the search continues.
I thought this was such a great idea. Take something you really love, a letter, envelope, photograph, a ticket stub... anything - and take it to a printing place like kinkos and have them blow it up for you to hang as art. Brilliant.

This picture makes me laugh and smile..... It's Diana Vreeland lounging in her living room designed by Billy Baldwin back in the day (sorry folks - i dont have an exact year). If they were to add 1 more trend in here, I think the room may explode!!!

So.... I thought I wanted to do the whole pale blue walls and white furniture for my bedroom, but I've completely changed my mind. Woops. I am thinking more woodsy.... seventies.... but still classic and warm. So, with that - this image from Room Service is the inspiration jumping off point - something like this for a dresser would be amazing. I'm thinking a cream shag rug, with a low long dresser similar to this - with super artsy lamps. Cream bedding with an amazing chevron throw blanket and happy pillows. Oh let the projects begin!

Right now I have a ton of pics saved on my computer of really cool rooms, that have amazing layering, texture... all with that bohemian vibe, livable yet really cool and interesting feel. I just imagine really creative people residing in these spaces.
This one above is from Lonny Magazine. I love the coffee table, the lucite chairs, the zebra benches, the bikini clad painting - it just all works!
The image above is from Metropolitan Home. The chair and flokati rug are amazing - but its that piece of art with that floral arrangement that caught my eye.

This is such a brilliant idea - I had to post it... I don't know about you but one of my favorite indulges is to have my hair blown out. Well - if you live in LA - you must go here. It's call The Drybar, and its in Brentwood Gardens. It's a salon geared ONLY for hair blow outs!! AND the best part is the price. It's $35 for an amazing blow dry. I can't wait to check this place out. www.thedrybar.com

I usually don't talk much on my blog about my personal life... this truly is just a diary of my loves in fashion... interior design.... anything! But I absolutely love my job and thought I'd share this with you. I run a wholesale sales team for a juniors clothing company. Basically --- we design for Forever 21, Nordstrom Brass Plum, Von Maur, Charlotte Russe....(that's just to name a few) and it's so fun! I use to work in premium denim and absolutely hated it! Can we say TEARS on a daily basis?!? Anyway - I am absolutely crazy about my job and love every second of it. So - here are some test shots from the pre-photo shoot we had today....

Check these pretties out. Just got them yesterday. Please excuse the ugly picture on the right - that's what came inside the frame. Right now - I am debating - I have a vintage Suzani that I got at a flea market several months back and possibly thinking of cutting it in half and framing the two sides in these frames.... I am completely on the fence. Anyway - I heart them and was so glad to take them home with me.
