flowers on fire!

ok, not really, but they are in the fireplace. I spotted this interesting idea for what to do with a fireplace you’re not using on the cover of the February 2007 Vogue Living (Australia). They placed various bouquets of flowers in different vases inside, which added a nice springtime burst of color. Another fireplace option I saw in the same issue was this:They filled it up completely with cut pieces of wood. I

Blue monday: bed side vingette

It’s a blue munday. yay. yipee. To cheery up and get the week started, here’s a lovely blue bedside vingette. This could be a great DIY project if you happen to have an old wood side table that needs some lovin’.

(Although, as I’ve mentioned, don’t look toooo close at them!…) Anyway- the other day I noticed that the Isaac Mizrahi collection at Target has brought out a new design for their bedding collection. A pretty graphic pattern of scattered butterflies paired with a nice mossy gree

Bodie and Fou: bottles and plants

I’m sure many of you have seen Love is Blind’s “bird on a wire” window blind (such a clever name by the way)- However, they just released these other two designs- “bottles” and “plants“- I really love these two! Would also be great for those that use blinds to cover up bookshelves or closets. Available at Bodie and Fou in mid April 2007.
