We are all attracted to drama a little bit, aren’t we? While I’m try my best to purge it from my own life, I don’t mind drama in the form of over sized accessories. That huge lantern? What an attention whore. Those ginormous vases? Who do they think they are showing off like that? I say bring it on. Sometimes our visual scales need to be rocked a little bit.
I find that I’m drawn to many rooms with Moroccan tables. They are the perfect size for a little end table or make a pretty coffee table cluster. Whether is a hexagonal wood variety (with pretty inlay, please!) or a brass tea table, I love the flair they add to a room.
While they look great in a typical bohemian pad- layered with beni ourain rugs, kilim rug pillows, pierced metal lanterns and ethnic textiles- I prefer them in a more neutral room. They create an attainable, eclectic feel. I’d sure love to stumble upon one… or three!
It’s my birthday week. I am NOT a birthday person. This year, is particularly hard as the house renovations have me totally tweaked out to the point that I barely feel human right now. I thought it might make me feel a little better to devote the rest of this week to things that make me happy. So today I have compiled an imaginary birthday wish list. Just a few self-indulgent items that make me twinkle for a few bright moments.
In no particular order…
1. These pillows by Madeline Weinrib, because I can never, ever have enough pillows.
And I love these two combined together- the crisp black and white chevron against the colorful embroidered Suzani. While I enjoy the designer pillows, and would surely appreciate the quality, I’d also happily settle for discounted fabrics like this and this sewn into new covers for my existing cushions.
2. Photography classes and a great camera to help me capture moments of beauty.
4. A really good book that I am unable to put down.
5. A week in St Thomas with my hunny and some good friends.
6. A bubble Bath
7. A new bag. Something lovely and designer, that makes me feel like a million bucks.
10. Cocktail Rings that I adore and remember to wear.
