rattan dining chairs + a great find!

January 17, 2013

World Market has, surprisingly, been knocking it out of the park lately! I’ve had my eye on these rattan dining chairs since I first saw them last year.  I love the shape and the high backs, and the darker tone and texture would look beautiful against a distressed wood table.  They retail for $159 per…

fab find friday: lutyens bench

June 15, 2012

If you’ve ever admired an English country garden, chances are you’ve seen a Lutyens garden bench, named after famed architect Edward Lutyen.  I’ve seen this bench in drop dead gorgeous landscapes for a while now and I absolutely love it – the curved back and rolled arms make for a beautiful focal point for a…

fab find friday: $30 adirondack chair

May 4, 2012

We need some extra seating for around our pool and I’ve been wanting something clean and classic, so when I found these folding AND reclining adirondack chairs for $30 a pop, I ordered a bunch, along with the matching ottomans for $12, faster than you could say, “SOLD”!  You have to assemble and paint or…

fab find friday: oversized ocean prints by tricia mckellar photography

April 6, 2012

Ever since I saw the above ocean print by photographer Marine Hugonnier in this Steven Gambrel-designed bedroom, I’ve been hooked.  Not only does it create a beautiful, serene focal point, but it’s almost like having a window right to the sea!  I love everything about this print – from the sparkling water to the expansive…

fab find friday: gray line linen

March 9, 2012

I love linen…it’s soft and elegant and adds texture and warmth to lots of projects, but it can be super expensive when you need yards and yards of it for window treatments or reupholstery.  I was reading Bryn’s blog last week, where I discovered Gray Line Linens, an online discount fabric store that sells nothing…

fab find friday: beaded porcelain bowls

March 2, 2012

Last week I stopped by Target for the first time in quite a while and instead of the granite cleaner I really needed, I ended up walking out with four of these gorgeous beaded porcelaincereal bowls.  I need another set of bowls about as much as I need a hole in the head, but they…

fab find friday: michelle tufted chair

September 23, 2011

Kirkland’s never used to be a place I frequented when shopping for clients (or myself), but lately I make sure to stop in whenever I’m nearby, just in case (remember these great finds?).  This week, while shopping with a client whose bedroom is is the midst of a major decor overhaul, we stopped into Kirkland’s…

fab find friday: glass lamps

July 1, 2011

When it comes to hitting thrift and retail stores like Home Goods and TJ Maxx, give me twenty minutes and I can find something beautiful amidst a bunch of, shall we say, “undesirables”, for lack of a better word.  What might look like it won’t work in the store can suddenly take on a new…

fab find friday: bamboo desk

June 17, 2011

Estate sales can be hit or miss-sometimes you find a treasure trove of goodies while other times, you just end up sorting through piles and piles of junk.  I’ve not had much luck at the last three estate sales I attended, but then one day, on a whim, I stopped at one down the street…

fab find friday: wicker stools

April 29, 2011

A while back, I posted about these , Overstock’s version of the Tolix stool, and how I lamented over them, eventually buying them for my kitchen.  They really were a great deal, but unfortunately, I thought they made my kitchen feel a little, well…cold.  I’ve always been a fan of these wicker ones from Pottery Barn:…
