The Cocktail Party...

I love getting my magazine subscriptions in the mail, especially when I find new sources for design items! Lately, I've seen a few quirky tables with chairs that disappear into the design.  I have to say that The Cocktail Party cocktail table and chairs from Society Social is pretty much the bee's knees.  Coming from a gal in a small living space, I love the idea of a multifunctional piece like this.  AND it comes in 11 high gloss paint finishes!!!

Bathroom Crush

I. am. in. love......with this bathroom designed by Sarah Luhtala of Warren Red:

The bathroom was featured in the November House Beautiful, but we only got a peek at this room...I found pictures of the rest of the home & it's just as lovely:

If I had the money, I would have purchased a piece I am absolutely MAD about!...What is it you ask?  Only the most B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L cobalt blue lacquered antique French commode with silver decorative corner plates.  I'm drooling just thinking about it!  Silly me, I didn't even take the time to snap a picture and it's all I can think about today.  Oh well, here are some of my favorite lacquered chests from 1stdibs........

Burlap Trim

I was browsing through my blogroll today and spent quite a bit of time over at Velvet and Linen.  Among the many exciting things happening over there, I LOVED the pic Brooke posted of the burlap upholstered walls from the amazing-looking store, Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts.  I love the idea of using rope to add some architectural detailing.  I'm putting that idea in my back pocket for later use ;-).

Love the idea!
