I'm obsessed with contrast piping on upholstery.

Unknown, Design*Dump

That is pretty much my dream couch. I've been searching for an upholsterer in my area to make white slipcovers with navy blue piping to no avail. It's so frustrating to live in such a stylishly challenged area.

I have a thing for shoes (don't we all?). And I happen to like my shoes a little on the .... funky? edgy? side. In comes Senso featured at Solestruck, my favorite online shoe spot.

K, sooo the high heeled beauts may not be the most practical, but those little western inspired puppies are on my fall MUST have list.

Stairway to heaven

via The Estate of Things

I LOATHE the carpet that is currently on our staircase. I'm thinking a seagrass runner, but I also love the sleekness of bare hardwood.

*Please contact me if any of these are your photos so I can give proper credit!

FRIDAY 6.25.10

My Friday Fantastic Find: Emilia Ceramics

I can't remember how I came across this site, but I'm enamored by these hand painted ceramic pieces. This beauty resides on my dining room buffet and I'm a giddy freak everytime I walk by it.

I'm obsessed with all things black and white. This simple striped planter is on my neverending list of wants:

Some other beauties:

I think these pieces would make wonderful wedding or housewarming gifts. Please take a look for yourself!

Are you so sick of that dining room, yet? I don't care. I love the moody blue walls and the crisp white to no end.

Style in One Picture

One of my new found favorite blogs, FROM THE RIGHT BANK,posted a challenge in which you post one picture that sums up your style. Let me just tell you, this was Haaaard.

While it was difficult to choose just one of the thousands of living spaces tucked away in my inspiration folder, I ultimately had to choose this photo:

And this is why:

1. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so really it's the most important room.
2. It's bold. Green subway tile, black wall. Awesome.
3. It's very neat. Not very much on the counters. I can't stand clutter.
4. I heart dark hardwood floors. I can never understand why people choose tile for the kitchen.
5. Whoever designed this made the perfect choices: simple hardware, do you see that faucet??!!, apron sink, built in seating for eating, super stove.
6. It's unexpected, but not fussy.
7. And on and on and on and on .......

Thanks so much for letting me participate! Now go enter your own picture!

Great Styling

via knight cat

But it's the shoesss I really love. Anyone know where I can find fringe booties like those?

A Fresh Start

To all my non-followers and if I ever have any newcomers,

After taking an extended hiatus from my first blog, the flailing fashion blog Dashboard Obsessions that has since been deleted, and recklessly abandoning my second, I've decided to turn one blog into a breeding ground off all beautiful images. Instead of saving them on my hard drive they will be haphazardly thrown onto the pages of this blog.

I do not claim to be an original and simply want to showcase any and every image I find beautiful. For my own personal viewing pleasure, and hopefully yours, too.

Put me by the window.

And my favorite:

Canopy Bed

I'm usually put-off by something so feminine, so frilly as a canopy bed. But I'm officially convinced that I need one for the master bedroom. NEED. Like RIGHT NOW!
