Happy Holidays!!

Today is my last day at work and that means it's officially Christmas!! I have been so busy rushing around gathering last minute gifts and packing for the holiday break that I have been neglecting my blog. Today is no exception. Here's to wishing you all a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year!!

Industrial Lighting

Industrial lighting fixtures have been a staple in design world for quite some time now and I still can't get enough of it! It's a style that screams effortless and chic all at the same time.

Have you heard the term wabi-sabi and wondered what the hell does that mean?! Well I did.....But now that I understand its meaning I am 100% all about wabi-sabi! It's basically the idea of finding beauty in imperfection. "It values simplicity, uncluttered, underplayed and modest surroundings." 

There's nothing I hate more than a perfectly pulled together room where everything looks like it belongs together. It just doesn't feel natural. A home should look like someone actually lives there! Fabrics don't need to perfectly coordinate, tables don't need to be flawless and chairs don't need to match. Most importantly, a home should be a reflection of the owner - objects that have meaning should take center stage. 

To demonstrate the idea behind wabi-sabi, take a look at the ridiculously beautiful home of Commune designer Pamela Shamshiri featured in the current issue of House Beautiful.

Girly Gift Guide

I usually don't buy my Christmas gifts until the last minute but this year I've been scouring the web in search of things I can purchase from the comfort of my computer (while in my pjs with a glass of wine in hand). 

I haven't found the perfect gift for those on my list but I did come across these great items......It's hard not to buy them for myself!

Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday Lovelies! Here's a little something to drool over.  For the reissue of Hans Wegner's 1970 stainless steel chair Carl Hansen & Son teamed up with Georg Jensen to create this amazing new version. The CH112 chair is plated with 24-karat gold and only costs a mere $10,055! Despite the crazy price tag, I am still in love.
