At Last...

Suzanne Kasler's line has finally arrived at Hickory Chair. This is good for two reasons...1. She has beautiful taste and I now have new beautiful furniture to spec for clients and 2. Hickory Chair is reasonably priced which means I can finally start affording a few pieces!! Look at these great pieces, some of them look like they could be from Oly Studio (another favorite of mine!)

My morning crush...

I’m sure many of you, like me, watch Good Morning America while getting ready. There is just something so great about this show, it quickly tells you the basic news you need to know, the weather, and then great “water cooler” topics. But the best thing of all is the cutie Chris Cuomo…his adorable smile and quick whit. In case you missed it Chris, his adorable family, and gorgeously simplistic home were featured in Elle D├ęcor this month.

Look what finally arrived...

Restoration Hardware just launched the new collection of RH Baby & Child. The items are precious, how will new mothers resist?!

Hopefully a round or oval crib is in the works...

These are pretty enough for a living room...
Where was this when I was little. I could have played house in here!!

1. What did you do 10 years ago?

I was 15 probably packing for church summer camp - we had the most beautiful 3 story cabins that had lots of rooms and would hold almost 100 people!! Me and my 9 bff's would all pack in one room together and stay up all night talking about who was the cutest boy at camp, what kind of pranks we could pull on them, and what make-up was best.
and I was starting to drive!!
