Decorista Trend Spotting: painted red furniture

This weekend I have been up to lots and lots of projects.
Repainting furniture has gotten the best of me, I'm hooked.
So, lately I have been noticing bits of red catching my eye.
I know we all took notice of this gorgeous apartment in Lonny Mag.
The red console dresser in her hallway did not go unnoticed by moi. I fell instantly in love with the glossy redness of it. I love the drawer with tons of jewels packed in. Ooh la la.
Makes me want to repaint something red, STAT!

Decorista Trend Spotting: Bubble Chandelier + DIY

This gorgeous bathroom was featured on KDID during her trip to the 
San Francisco Decorator showcase (so wish i could have been there)
and with my recent obsession/fascination with lighting...i thought i'd go ahead and share.
Isn't she lovely?
I think it all started at the Gramercy Hotel lobby in NYC.
This is why I LOVE hotel design, whatever the trend they make it perfection.

What's new..?

In light of my recent post on 2010 decor trends,
I have been on the hunt for all that is gray + yellow.
Sure enough, West Elm is right on point...the NEW collection spans from anything yellow to everything gray. Here are some simple buys that I would make to 
keep my place hot, fresh + 2010.

Combine the gray striped sheets (below) with the yellow quilt (above) for some hotness.

throw in a zebra or damask rug to mix it up
nothing says luxury better than bone trinket boxes for the desk space
and why not throw in a bird cage for a tounge-in-cheeck element
There you go...just a few fresh additions to spruce up your pad for 2010.
