needing. wanting. loving. {ghost chair influx}

I am so happy to be back in NYC and already busy working again, so fun! I'm currently working on a fabulous project using the cute + coveted white louis ghost chairs. I am so in love with them, they are so adorable and the perfect addition to this room. How about the pretty monogrammed pillows to top them off with some flair? Fierce, no?
Why do I so love this fabulous chair???

fiela feather lights by haldane martin

I don't know what it is about feathers lately but I am just smitten with fluffy things for spring!
I have noticed around the Scandinavian style blogs and online mags, these gorgeous feather pendant lamps keep popping up and every time I lay eyes on these babies I have an instant love affair. They are fluffy, cozy and gorgeous...perfect for romantic french or scandinavian chic style. 

Designer Haldane Martin from South Africa actually makes these gorgeous feather lights.
They are oh so delicious + pretty. They come in either pendant style or arch lamp style. 
I love everything about that...get them here.

Accessory Love: Harry Allen piggy bank

Over the weekend I did some really fun shopping in brooklyn (williamsburg to be exact, such fun shops) and one thing I can't seem to get over is the adorable and ever so popular,
  Harry Allen piggy bank
It's been around for a long while, but this little guy is still in style and all over NYC. He comes in gold, silver and other fun colors like copper...adorable! Check out how stylish he makes any ol' abode. I am needing one of these babies bad.

 more cute piggies...
I mean you just don't get more adorable than this. A perfect gift for the stylish child too.

needing. wanting. loving. {metallic earthy glamour}

Talk about love at first sight. This gorgeous Sequoia console from Zgallerie has literally taken my breath away. I want it immediately if not sooner. Gorgeous and glamorous and earthy...this console has got some serious soul. It's every bit the eclectic glamour that I feel is my personal look. This is essential for my new apartment, it has me thinking of a whole new decor scheme. I got it bad for this boy. 

needing. wanting. loving. {geometric lamps}

Recently I told you guys how important fabulous lamps are to a room. I couldn't stop with my obsession for finding a perfect pair for my new NYC apartment...I haven't exactly moved in yet but I am already putting together mood boards + shopping lists of what I am daydreaming of. These gorgeous Geometric lamps are just my speed and I am dying for a pair. It's between the pink or the gray, or maybe the green. I love them all its so hard to decide. 

rooms that rock my world! my dream bedroom...

and I am absolutely in love!
The dark wall behind the plush headboard is the perfect compliment to the influx of bright light in the room. I am also enamored with beautiful + calming feminine hues of light pink and purple. It just tops the room off with a bit of elegance and romance. So dreamy, no?

needing. wanting. loving. {PEACOCK CHAIRS}

I know in most parts of the country and even most parts of the world, the weather is awful and cold. However, here in LA, its perfection at a sunny 73 degrees and I am loving every second of it. Sitting on the patio sipping my morning coffee, I found myself dreaming about the perfect patio chairs I spotted in this latest issue of Lonny
Perfectly peacock chairs absolutely rock my world and I am dying to get my paws on a pair asap! 
They are essential on any chic LA girls patio for weekend mornings.

They can be fabulous for lounging around with your girlfriends or even at your office space...
I would prefer mine in black but sunny yellow never hurt anybody. I think she's cute, no?
I'm also fond of the mini version in the dining room...

Today I'm loving toile

I don't know what it is about this terrifically english pattern, but I have always been so attracted to its sophisticated look. On wallpaper, as curtains, or even just a small pillow...toile adds just a beautiful touch in home decor. I have even loved some rooms completely decked out in toile from wall to wall. 
So very east coast meets country house chic. My personal obsession is with the more modern versions as shown here, the cute little tori mellot yellow toile wallpapered kitchen has always stolen my heart. 
loving it!


secret of domestic bliss #35...decorate with a piece of tufted furniture

When decorating your home, there are certain items that transcend periods and styles,
they just look amazing anywhere.
There really is something very grand about tufted furniture.
I feel like it evokes a sense of history and
at the same time can be very modern... the perfect blend.
At the moment, I cannot get enough of the look of perfectly executed tufted pieces.
I totally suggest keeping your eyes out for one of your own.
 Here is how you can make it work....

Mix a velvety yellow sofa with high gloss black asian table for a boho chic look.
Or a deliciously soft tufted headboard paired with a glossy mirrored side table is absolute glamour!
 I also love a beautiful tufted headboard layered with romantic ruffles for that Parisian chic look.
Nothing says "coziness" like all white bedding...
well...maybe a gorgeous oversized sectional.
A woman after my own heart.
the zebra art in this living room. killer. 
the fact that its paired with chiang mai pillows. genius.
