Ikat Pillows

I will be purchasing 2 of these when I get money. I'm annoyed with the stupid throw pillows I currently have, but with these around, I have a feeling my boyfriend will get annoyed with me when he's not allowed to lay on them. I gotta protect the fabric!

Ikat Pillow cover, 20x20, $19,

Pink Bathroom.

This is what my bathroom looks like... well, let me rephrase. My bathroom is this shade of pink, but his actually looks nice. :) That lighting fixture is crazy!

Home Theater...

This is a good idea for my possible future home theater (which I must and will have as soon as i have another bedroom). Love that red curtain... Sigh.

This home is featured in the slideshow titled 'Making Sense of the City' The caption:

'The kitchen transitions into the living room, which transforms easily into a home theater when the heavy red drapes are pulled tightly shut.'

I have home envy.

Marais Chairs on Sale!!

So DWR is finally within my reach with their 50% off summer sale. I think I am going to purchase this Marais stool- which I've been drooling over- in gunmetal gray. It's on sale for 90 bucks! I wish it was in a vibrant color like the Vermilion, but beggars can't be choosers. This stool will be a great multipurpose item in my small apartment. Head on over to DWR for more deals on summer seating.

Also this chair is on sale, which looks cool, but unfortunately does not have a red or orange option, which is the color I'm currently looking for (for my kitchen chairs). Sigh.

18 inch Marais Stool, gunmetal gray, $90 on sale from $180
Alonzo Chair, in white, $44 on sale from $88
Both available from

Love that red headboard. The NY times is on a roll today. This one is from the most recent edition of "On the Market in New York City". This is a one bedroom on the east side of midtown, could be yours for $530k.

Ready For My Close-up!

This bedroom, from a Kentucky (!) house featured in the NY Times article "Properties for $400,000", looks like a movie set, doesn't it? I can imagine some steamy scenes happening here... I love it. Minimalism meets Boho.

All hats and little black gloves...

One note about the MJ Memorial (which I watched, like the Dirty Diana obsessed nerd I am): How great do they look?
