Lingerie Library

Saw this in a catalog and thought I’d share with you guys…

How fabulous would it be to have so much space that you could dedicate an entire closet to lingerie? Stuff of dreams…

Fabric Love: La Fiorentina in Magenta/Wine

Have had a love for David Hicks La Fiorentina fabric ever since first seeing it on Ruthie Sommer’s sofa featured on the cover of Domino magazine’s premire issue. Received a shipment of it in the wine/magenta colorway today and can’t wait to make them into pillows for the shop.  Look out for them sometime next week!

My sister alerted me of these pretty little Pantone metal storage boxes -so perfect for designers and color lovers!

They’re available in 10 different Pantone colors. I think the turquoise one is my favorite!

Back to work and getting used to wearing my new glasses while using the computer. I got them just a few days ago. They’re my very first pair and am I’m finding them kinda fun to wear.  Maybe I’ll take a picture of what they look like on and share with you via twitter :-D

A lovely little nightstand

Two beautiful bedrooms – both with dark walls, white sheets, a touch of color, and that elegant white lacquered boudoir end table with lucite and nickel accents:

End table is from the Jonathan Adler Channing collection. Most of us would consider it pricey -if you know of a similar looking one that’s less expensive, be sure to share it with us in the comments section! :)

Organized Cooking Utensils

Organizing kitchen utensils into simple containers and keeping them on the counter is great for having them within easy reach.

Particularly love the way it looks when they are organized by type – wooden utensils in one crock and stainless steel utensils in another.

How Victoria Organizes Her Vanity

Today participating in the How I Organize series is the super sweet Victoria of the lifestyle blog vmac and cheese. She gives us a peek inside her home and shows us how she beautifully organizes her makeup, perfumes, products and other lovely things atop her dresser:I’m not the type who likes to hide everything away — my house definitely looks like someone lives there and my vanity area is no exception! An antique wood dresser which belonged to my great grandmother is right at home in a sunroom off of our bedroom, which we use as a dressing area. Atop the dresser, I store makeup in clear acrylic drawer and cosmetic organizers that I purchased from The Container Store. I also showcase different perfumes and products on an old mirrored tray found at the flea market; jewelry rests in a repurposed ceramic soap dish. Getting ready in the morning is easy with all my items in quick reach, and the area looks pretty, lived in, and organized!
