Crazy for CB2!

Crazy for CB2!

As I work on updating my sixteen year old son’s room, I am reminded that I am Crazy for CB2!  Their products are so on trend, versatile and at a great price point!  I ordered my son the Footfall Bedding.  Which I felt so lucky to find.  Why do bedding designers think boys/men only want stripes and women want flowers?!  There are so many gorgeous fabrics out there that are attractive to both sexes.  I don’t think I have ever owned floral bedding, I am a geometric kind of old lady!  When I was younger, I would often find the ‘masculine’ bedding for me.  This is just what I liked.  So, bravo to CB2 for offering cool bedding that feels very universal.  Of course, then I had to browse the whole site and found a bunch of goodies for a variety of projects I am working on.  Why oh why can’t their be a CB2 in San Diego?!  Here are some awesome picks for you, clients or me!

Don’t forget to click on any image you like to find out how to purchase!

I ordered the bedding and then saw this cute 5 minute timer, perfect for getting ready rushes!  I also ordered this clear side table.  Now we will know exactly what is stashed in there.

As I browsed, I found this cleaned lined chair, with a little bit of Shaker flare.  This is a great one for a future client, it can work in so many settings.  Oh, and the rug, perfect for my downtown condo client, who loves the blue/orange mix.  What is so great is it is more than just orange and blue, the other tones add a whole dimension to what could become a very flat space. This filing cabinet would add a fun pop to any space.

This sweet table lamp is a unique shape with classic colors, or lack of, with its white and brass theme.  Everyone knows I love art with words.  This limited edition print by Matthew Heller is so versatile, youthful enough for a teens room or thougthful  and fun for a living space.  Here, my son just thought I was getting him new bedding!  He will be suprised when he sees the whole new look.  I am soooo lucky he trusts me!  This marble and brass shelf will work in a kitchen I am freshening up for a client.  We want to take down some unused cabinets and put up some shelves for styling.  These will be perfect!

Black and brass is a strong trend this year.  Often people are afraid to invest in pieces, like chandeliers, because they can be costly.  Luckily, so many stores are making affordable chandeliers today.  Not to say you should change your lighting with the trends.  If you like a look, it will be timeless for you!  This salvaged table from Northern Ontario, is available in a limited 100 edition, so if you love it, don’t wait!  A perfect example of furniture as art.  Of course, I have to find a mirror, you can never have too many of those.

I hope you enjoy these finds!  As alway, feel free to contact me for design help, inspiration or sources.

It’s Getting Hot; Summertime Pops!

It’s Getting Hot; Summertime Pops!


Still looking for some outdoor furniture for your outdoor space?  Since I am redoing my backyard, I have more fantastic finds to share!

Protecting your skin is always a priority in my house!  That is why we use Rodan & Fields, from my favorite consultant Lisa Perlmutter, Skin Concierge.   Check our her page and learn how to protect your skin AND look younger!  Having said that, I always like to provide shade for my guests, this Stand Alone Umbrella does the job.  I love the clean lines and neutral color palette it provides while shading us.  I am envisioning a seating area under it. This pop of gray and lilac from Dot & Bo would be awesome or a neutral grouping, like the one from One Kings Lane would look great.

I am going to create a lounge area with a fire pit.  I love the fire pit  from Dot & Bo surrounded by the Fuschia Adirondack Chairs from World Market.  I also love the Mexa Ixtapa Lounge Chair for this look.  Some other pieces I am dreaming about are the Hanging Chair, Turqouise Bench and MacKenzie-Childs Outdoor Sunflower Table.  No matter what look you are going for, always remember to buy pieces that you love and are going to use.  I promise, it will all work.  The world is such a wonderful rainbow, I hope these finds help make your backyard shine.  I will post photos of mine, when it is done.  And it looks like I am on a rhyming spree.  Enjoy!

Home Decor Gifts for Mom

Home Decor Gifts for Mom

Coincidentally, 3 husbands of clients asked me for gift ideas for their wives for Mother’s Day.  They all knew their wives had seen something for the home that they loved, but did not buy.  This, of course, turned into me sending the men lists and links.  So often, it is the mom of the house who buys for everyone else, but not for herself!  I decided to share some of the items on these lists, as well as some other awesome Mother’s Day finds.  Eighteen years ago, my own mother, bought me a Kosta Boda plate, she had seen me eyeing every time we set foot in the Bloomingdale’s home department.  She gave it to me on Mother’s Day.  I had given her the gift of her first grandchild, a boy, she had only daughters, and she wanted me to have something special to look at to remind myself how appreciated I was.  She told me there would be plenty of days (and nights), when I would feel exhausted, overwhelmed and under appreciated.  Mom told me to find the plate at those dark moments to remind myself that it was all worth it and how much my love meant to my children and to her.  Now that my mom is gone, the plate has even more meaning.  It is a reminder of her unconditional and unwavering love for me and her grandchildren.

Perhaps your mom would love to style her coffee table with an extra special backgammon set, trinket tray or agate coasters.  What about a gold love pillow or cashmere blanket?   Wouldn’t it be awesome to give your mom a planter with a growing plant?  I love the idea of presenting a mom with a chrome bar cart.  She can use it as a display center for all of the special gifts and decor items.  I love flowers that last forever – especially when they seem as real as the real ones!

I hope these finds inspire you to find something special for your mom or the mother of your children!  Click on any of the images for resources.
