Satin Quilts

Indicative of that Hollywood Style, there's something dreamy (ok, and maybe a little granny?) about a satin quilt coverlet. Just be careful not to slip off the other side of the bed when you jump on. Leontine Lines has an amazing assortment of colors and patterns if you can spend $4000 on a quilt. Here is their chocolate quilt:

but I found this "truffle" colored quilt on Brocade Home's website on sale for $89! Recesh Spesh!

The Shortest Wavelength

So here is my bedroom color scheme. I'm in love with the purple gray walls combined with dark brown of the ceramic lamp, the sheen of the truffle bedspread, and the sparkling silver of the mirrored wall sconce. I'd like to introduce some orchid into the palette as well.

The Magical Mystery of Natural History!

I discovered Kelly O’Neal and the Design Legacy team last month at the New York International Gift Fair. They use Natural History illustrations to make a slew of products including throw pillows, fabric, and wall hangings. Very cool! Here are some of my favorites.

Mystic Mayhem!

Maybe it's because I just finished reading The Haunting of Hill House for bookclub but my gothic sensabilities are in full effect. May I please have a desk with all of these items on it? Please?

Art Nouveau, you know?

Here are some inspirational images from the art period of writhing vines and whiplashed curves known as Art Nouveau.

I heart polyvore...

Color Scheme by jcraver

Ok, so they will probably lock me up in the looney bin before I commit to paint colors for my apartment but this is the "pallete" that is currently inspiring me. If they do send me away maybe they will teach me how to weave baskets and I can sell them in Charlotte Moss' store, just kidding it closed, just kidding there are like 5 pictures of it in my polyvore, just kidding it really did... (please tell me you've seen Kristen Wiig's nervous Judy Grimes on SNL?)

Love (these) Birds

I love the color combinations in these Victorian bird prints. I want to incorporate these colors/the multicolor vibe... without making my apartment look like a carribean themed restaurant.
