Friday Finds on Tuesday: Valentine’s Edition

Somehow, Friday turned into Tuesday. Don’t you hate when that happens?

In case you’re hunting for a few Valentine-inspired décor items (and who isn’t?), I’ve rounded up some very pretty accessories I think you’ll love. And they’re not so Valentine-y that you can’t enjoy them the rest of the year.

The Milo Candleholder from Serena & Lily is gorgeous: sleek shape, deep red color, and on sale!

Simon Pearce’s Pure Romance Bowl is the perfect riff on a heart shape—artistic without being cutesy.

We all love fresh flowers, but if you’re looking for something that might last a little longer, how about these red paper roses from West Elm?

 

And if you’re going to give flowers, be sure you present them in a pretty vase—like these hand-blown glass vases from West Elm.

There’s still time to pick up something pretty (even if you give it to yourself).

 

Cheers to that!  

Friday Finds!

How much do you love Fridays? I’ve been pretty busy (crazy, out-of-my-mind busy) lately, which is a great problem to have, so I’m really looking forward to this weekend.

While I dream of what to do with a few hours to myself, take a look at these fabulous Friday finds:

New York designer Milly de Cabrol’s new (small) apartment by the High Line. What do you think? (I love the desk facing the tall windows! Hello, city.)

From New York to rural South Carolina: For a three-minute break from your busy day, take a peek through the pictures of this remodeled farmhouse. I love the use of wood, tin, and rope—They feel so perfectly at home.

Back to Denver: Local furniture design house Newell Design Studio makes this beautiful and funky desk. How would it look in your office?

 And up to Boulder: Do you know about è bella? This little shop sells beautifully designed modern rugs and pillows. (And if you’re feeling the winter doldrums, a few bright, bold pillows might just cheer you up until spring shows up, don’t you think?)

Have a great weekend. See you back here next week!

Friday Finds!

Hello friends and fellow design lovers.

I’ve scouted some truly beautiful things for this edition of “Friday Finds.”

Enjoy…

This early-20th-century royal blue sofa would look great in a classic living room, but you could also incorporate it into a more contemporary space. The details are gorgeous!

These grey nesting tables from Serena & Lily have sleek little drawers, the perfect solution for all the stuff that accumulates in family rooms: remote controls, kids’ trinkets, coasters—you get the picture.

I love when furniture designers play with classic forms, don’t you? These dining chairs from West Elm are a modern riff on a classic Windsor chair. What do you think?

And if you’re searching for a beautiful new chandelier—something to make a strong but handsome statement in your home—check out Currey & Company’s lighting selection. I can’t pick just one!

Happy Friday to you!

I am getting excited for the Holidays!!!

What about you?  Are you in the holiday-decorating spirit yet?  In Denver today or tomorrow?  Here is an idea L'Esprit de Noel Home Tour for some inspiration. 

 

While I’m dreaming about beautiful baubles, here are a few things I want to share with you:

A brilliant idea for a holiday card: an illustration of your home, all decked out for the season! (Spotted on Design Mom)

Beat the holiday rush and send beautiful Thanksgiving cards.

These gorgeous leather-and-felt bags (made by design wizards in L.A.) would make the perfect holiday gift for your mom, sister, wife, grown-up daughter, or friend.

I love a little mercury glass in holiday décor. Find a few pretty options here, here, and here.

If you live in the Denver metro area and you think your décor needs a little boost this year, please give me a call.  I decorate many clients’ homes for the holidays, and I’d be happy to spread a little cheer at your house too!
