model as muse

I am in NY right now and just came from the exhibit at the Met. "Model as Muse." if you are in the area it is definitely worth your while. I have posted a video of a walk through to give you an idea. The "Model as Muse" book is beautiful and makes a great gift for any of your fashion obsessed friends or yourself :). (make sure you get the hardcover)

The new uniforms designed by Balenciaga for Air tahiti Nui. What do you think?
I like them they are appropriate and seem to be flattering. 



Check out these wrap dress uniforms designed by Richard Tyler (pictured) for Delta flight attendants. I am all for it!

tart glassware

Table Art is one of my favorite spots for china and other table accessories. They carry a lot of the classics but also have a more modern edge. I love the way these glasses look on an exposed shelf or in a glass cabinet.  Table art manufactures these mouth blown glasses.  Wouldn't it be pretty to do the 3 shades of blue.. Starting with the lightest? All of the colors are so great. Which colors would you choose?

more room for play


My sister is always trying to come up with ideas to create a new space for her three children to have a room of their own for: art projects, playing, dress up and just be kids without messing up the main house. Unfortunately there is just not enough space without doing a major addition that is expensive and inconvenient. I have been looking in to other options so we don't have to convert the garage into this space.  I love the clean lines of the Modern Play Shed.   You start with  a basic model play shed  for that comes ready to paint or stain on the outside. The goal of these sheds is to be able to assemble them quickly using the tools included.  then you can add additional options on the inside such as: chalkboard or whiteboard wall panels, play shed deck. I called this morning and spoke to the people at Modern Shed. They said that you can add additional green options such as green roofs, and cork floors that are normally reserved  for larger sheds on the play shed. 

Do you like the idea of  a detached playroom?

i wanna go here!

You may have seen JK Capri mentioned in some of my past posts. I have never been to the J.K. but the website has been inspiring me consistently since I discovered it nearly 3 years ago. I was visiting the website today and noticed they have added some new photos so I thought I would post them.


not a bad view from the pool.
Or the room...



The small unexpected accents of red on the lamp and on the pillow really make this shot interesting.






Check out the placement of the coordinating stripes on the sofa pillows and the bed pillows.. very clever.
