Wow.




How crazy beautiful is this Neo Baroque Chandelier? Oh yeah, it's crazy expensive too. I'm thinking that designer Abigail Ahern's book A Girl's Guide to Decorating is more within my budget - or perhaps the budget of a friend or family member wondering what to get me for Christmas. Of course, if they'd rather get me the chandelier, I'm cool with that.

I'm dreaming of a new sofa.

Crate & Barrel's Rachel Sofa

Crate & Barrel's Azure Sofa

Crate & Barrel's The Nines Sofa


EQ3's Byrd Sofa

EQ3's Tavern Sofa



I may possibly need to get a new sofa next year. (If my sister and the fiance need ours I've told them they can have it. Aren't I so nice?) Sooooo.... if I do need one, it has to be a good blend of practicality, durability, affordability and comfort - while still being stylish, of course. These could all be contenders I think.

I loved the stuff Rita Konig used to do for Domino. So nice to see she's now blogging for The New York Times. Do check it out here. (Oh, and how cute is her car?)

I never thought I could get this excited over a drywall hook.




I've been super busy setting up a showhome this week. (I may post pics when it's done - if I decide I like it. Right now it's got me feeling kind of ...meh.) Anyway, I've been using some of these drywall hooks to hang pictures. I got mine at Michaels, but you may recall the Hercules Hook infomercials? (R.I.P. Billy Mays.) These things are just so freaking genius. And they hold so much weight! The ones I got hold 50 lbs, which was all I needed, but the Hercules Hooks supposedly hold up to 150 lbs. Just so darn handy.
