Another Kitchen to add to my "love list"

Another beautiful kitchen featured in the May issue of Metropolitan Home.

Below is another kitchen featured in the mag. This kitchen is home to skilled artists who love their craft...don't you think they would have hung a different photo/art piece in the kitchen, instead of a woman dressed in 80's clothing with a pink shoulder-pad jacket on the street...I guess it's one of those art pieces I just don't understand.

Thanks to David at Bless this Bike for giving a shout-out. Your blog is great and makes me so excited to ride my bike this summer in the city! For great bike trails and fun places to ride check out Bless this Bike.
I also loved the posting from David on Google's new way of being green. This search engine uses a black background to save energy while you do your regular searches on google - what will they think of next?

A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Diane Von Furstenberg seems to have a hand in a little bit of everything these days. When browsing The Rug Company website I came across these beautiful and highly stylized rugs from DVF. I love animal print (even though I have none in my house), they always seem to add a nice layer of texture and movement to a room. Here are a few of my favorites from the line…

David Mitchell

I found Nate's least when it comes to interiors. Below are a few rooms from the talented David H. Mitchell. Natural, sleek, and clean interiors...
I would have opted to select a different rug.

I love the color! Looks like a kitchen in a NYC apt.

A country girl at heart

Reese Witherspoon is the new owner of this beauty. Looks like she's going back to her country roots, now if she could just go back to her gorgeous husband...

What dinnerware will you choose?

There is a moment in every girls life when she must decide what dinnerware is right for her. The dinnerware that will sit at the table while she is a host and prepares an elegant meal. It's an important decision, afterall how many of you have seen what your grandmother has selected and wondered "What was she thinking?" only to know it will someday be passed down to you and possibly end up in your dinning room. The choice is usually made because of an engagement, a time when you are already stressed out enough and now are forced with another important decision. I personally spent months deciding which formal dinnerware and everyday dinnerware would be right for me only to realize I would go simple and accesorize with pieces I find later in life. I'm too young to really know my exact style and what will fit with the interior I finally decide upon. For now, here are a few beautiful pieces to help you new brides along...


For the graphic designer...Kate Spade - "Corona Grave Platinum"

For the girly girl...Kate Spade - "Gwinnet Lane Chocolate"
I've seen this as a full set on a dining room table and it is just beautiful,
the rich browns & whites go perfectly with crystal wine glasses.

For the bold one...Missoni - "Sunset"

For the sophisticated one - Vera Wang - "Sable Duchesse"

For the spunky one - Marc Jacobs Waterford - "David" in Canary

Everyday The stylist - "Sophie Conran"

The basic one - "Pottery Barn"

The entertainer - "Fiestaware - My favorite!"
I've grown up with these colorful plates. My mother would purchase a few colors, use them, sell them (they have a great re-sale value, sometimes more then they were purchased for), and buy new and different colors, plus they are virtually unbreakable. I have a full set of several pieces in white.
