The Perfect barstool LUCITE + BRASS

A while back I spotted these amazing barstools. The perfect shaped 70's lucite and brass barstools my eyes have ever seen. Totally reminiscent of Charles Hollis Jones...I have been on a mission ever since. My Ft. Lauderdale client just might be the best one since she got to score them for her kitchen bar area. I swear we find the BEST lucite and brass items down in South Florida. Remember the brass canopy bed we found her? Agh. It's so good...

We found this perfect pair on Ebay....but it was already sold.
Little did we know, the perfect 4 were found on Craigslist with the perfect pink fabric. Hello. 
They look more than perfection, no?
 
Her pup Francois seems to agree too!

NEEDING. WANTING. LOVING. beautiful brass seating

 When I first stumbled across this lovely office space I couldn't help but think of how lovely the shade of pink on the wall was. I quickly realized that my favorite part of this space is this amazing chair. I am so into metal accent chairs lately, especially the brass ones. I am now going to be endlessly searching this city for the perfect one for my home office...

 I just love this Klismos (old greek style) brass and leather weaved chair. It's incredibly glam and stylish, but I am not quite sure how comfortable that would be to work in all day. I am very much into comfort, so a plush seat with buttery soft leather would be so perfect for me...
 Even placing a sweet little brass chair in the bathroom makes for a heavenly little sitting spot.

NEEDING. WANTING. LOVING. BRASS BOOKSHELVES

Inspired by this beautiful photo I knew that a brass bookcase would make the perfect addition to my clients home office. We searched high and low and found this interesting looking one...

Isn't she beautiful. Very unique and oh so perfect for displaying gorgeous items.
It's not styled to perfection yet, but at least we have begun the magic.
Today, I am relishing in the fact that we actually found one for around $100 and it looks so old school glam. Now I am considering getting one for myself!

bliss in the kitch'...mixing wood + metallics

Over the holiday I got to catch up with a few of my favorite blogs and found a new love for warm metallics in the kitchen. I love the idea of mixing, rose gold, gold and brushed silver fixtures. I also love a good stainless steel countertop and appliances. My client and I will be playing all week trying to come up with the perfect combination...

for the perfect look, I am taking a cue from a few of my fave pinterests
I love the big wood planks on the floor mixed with a rustic grey-ish cabinetry. It's very cute country but still a bit modern with that GORGEOUS glass faced fridge. 
No exposed woods here but a very pretty mix of deep brass, bright gold + a pop of aluminum. love.
the second i saw this photo on debby's blog, I freaked. The black wood countertop + brass fixture look, mixed in with marble walls and brushed silver drawer pulls and copper and aluminum pots and pans. It's perfection.
they are all so pretty. my heart sings songs of decorista joy! 

office space of the day...fabulously black and brass

black walls + gold accents + gorgeous lucite desk + faded blue rug + brown leather chairs =
domestic bliss

So, I don't think I could ever get enough of dark black walls. Every single time I see a black room, I am stunned by the beauty of it. Is it odd that I mostly have black in my closet too? I love black...its classic, simple, elegant, edgy, and it goes with everything! 

secret of domestic bliss #44...big, bold and beautiful lamps

I always say that lamps are to a room like earrings are to an outfit... they are an essential part of the decor.  Most of us who have great overhead lighting forget that lamps are so much more than a fabulous source of light, they are a key figure in decorating. Big, bold and beautiful lamps can do so much for a room. A stand alone beauty can make a huge statement all by itself and give a room that extra pop of color that it needs. On the other hand, when you add a pair of lamps, your room is instantly more sophisticated and polished. You can find just the right pair to tailor your room and make it complete. If you find a pair you love, just grab them. You never can have too many lamps.

Okay, so New York city is absolutely blowing me away. I have been buzzing around this city like crazy. I am most fascinated by the beautiful art galleries... everywhere! This photo totally inspired my day yesterday of hunting this city for the best artwork finds for clients this week. All the artwork in the city is intoxicating!

the decorista Trend Spotting: brass deer


These lovely brass (and quite large) deer figurines are all the rage and I have been dying for one.
My obsession started a while back when I found a brass rams head dining table. Since then I have been coveting a brass deer and found out that my dad has one that he is sending me and I cannot wait to get my hands on that little angel. I love it.



P.S. I AM LOVING NY.
I'm getting all settled in to my adorable + cozy apartment...shopping around the cutest little neighborhoods and playing around with the pup in the snow. Too much fun.
