"We're gonna turn this town upside down!"

I just love this artist, elloh, on Esty. She dones prints on canvas and on paper. And most of her artwork is her depiction of awsome movies, TV shows, singers, and song lyrics. I like the Breakfast at Tiffany's print, the Buffy print (Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my all time favorite TV show) and Pretty in Pink. So inspiring!

Savoir Chair

You can find this upholstered chair at Crate & Barrel. Although a little contempory for my taste, I think it would look lovely surrounded by a more modern sofa in a grey tone in a room with white walls. Lovely.

I've been away for awhile, so sorry if you've missed me. The fact is I'm not really sure anyone is reading this, but if you are please leave me a message! I would love to hear from you. So going back to being away, I guess I got caught up in life and havent' had much time to think about design or sad. Ok, I never stop thinking about design. Here is a bench/bookcase that I found and of course I saved the picture and can't rememver where I found it. I will do reseach later and figure it out. I promise. And I promise to post more. :) So I found the site where you can view and purchase this bench/bookcase. "Shelves with a Bench" is from a designer named Stanislav Katz from Latvia.

kate spade knows pink

Gorgeous. I saw these kate spade shoes while shopping at Nordstrom this week. Gorgeous. Did I say that already? They were so stunning in the store. Wouldn't they look fantastic with a black skirt and light pink blouse. You can buy yours on sale right now for $176.90 at I'm placing my order right now!

I heart pink glasses

It's another beautiful day in Seattle, which is amazing considering the seriouly bad days we've had up until this weekend. I saw these french inspired "Fleur de Lis" tumblers and carafe on the web site for In Style Magazine this week. With weather this nice remember to stay hydrated! You can purchase them at Maison Midi online but I've also seen them at anthropologie. I sure you can even pick them up at your local antique store and hopefully for a good price. Enjoy the summer while it lasts!

Plastic Fantastic

Plastic furniture in true baroque style. Wood furniture covered in plastic makes it easy to clean and so colorful. Comes in lots of colors actually but I like the pink.

Snog on a hot day.

I just saw these pictures of the first frozen yoghurt store to open in the United Kingdom called Snog. "Snog is a new retail concept offering pure frozen yogurt, natural and green tea. The shop interior evokes the feeling of summer. The concept for the store was to evoke the feeling of a perfect never-ending summer. The interior is deliberately quirky, with a photographic grass floor and British flowers on the glass walls. A key element is the digital sky which will adjust the mood of the store perpetually throughout the day and evenings."-Frame Magazine.
It's funny that this would be the first frozen yoghurt store in the UK but I guess it doesn't get hot over there where people are running to the ice cream store with kids in tow. Stores are popping up in Seattle, we definitely saw the trend last summer and now gelato shops are all the rage. I don't care if it's ice cream, frozen yoghurt or gelato, I love sweets things!

CB2 Livin'

CB2 , the online store, is always adding items to their sale. I just came across this print which is on sale of course. I'm really feeling that statement right now "Living for the City". Of course I would like to live closer to the city before I display this in my home but believe me someday I will live downtown or closer to downtown Seattle than I do now. Or maybe someday I'll move to a bigger city....I think I ready for anything right now.

I Heart James Merrell's Photography

Photographer James Merrell from the UK has taken some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. Breaktaking. Interiors and fashion. Sometimes a mix of both. His site has so many wonderful pictures. I even blogged about this first one some time ago but had no idea who had taken the photo. So now I know. I'm also inspired to take a romantic photo like the last one with my husband now. Wouldn't that look great hanging above the fireplace!

I think we all strive to find our passion in life, that thing we really LOVE to do. And the lucky ones get to do it everyday and get paid for it. Life is about passion and feeling and moving and evolving. Every moment should count. I can't say I "love" what I do (not all the time at least) but my foot is in the right direction. I like what I and someday I know I will love what I do. LOVE WHAT YOU DO. *This creative picture comes from Kim Charmley a Danish graphic designer who started her own studio IMI Design in Copenhagen.

May showers bring summer flowers

I want, I want, I want, Iwant, I want!!!!!

"Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka unveiled the world's most beautiful chairs at this year's Salon Internazionale del Mobile, Milan (16-21 April, 2008). Entitled 'Bouquet', this floral masterpiece was created for Italian brand Moroso, with prototypes created from tissue paper and later manufactured by hand from fabric. The designer himself claims that new chair Bouquet "uplifts the sitter as well..."
