SHOP SUNDAY 11-23-14

Nina Ricci Arc Clutch

Time to do a little shopping this Sunday.  Probably the last Sunday of that year that I will be thinking of browsing the web for sweet things for myself...(although next week's sales will be oh so tempting).  Next Sunday, serious holiday mode is kicking in - time to spread the shopping love with some gift guide finds.

Don't know why I am focusing on the clutch purses this Sunday...but can't get my eye off of these few!

Here are few random things I am liking right now.


YSL Nail Lacquer in Gris Deco


Marc & Graham Monogram Pouch in Ivory



Gold bar cart



Busy Sunday ahead. Meeting up with CC at the Soho House for brunch and then going over to do a little work at COCOCOZY HQ.

I can feel the holiday crunch coming. Lots to do! So little time!

Happy Sunday!

Dining room with Platner chairs and table

The Platner iconic piece of furniture first introduced in 1966 by American architect and interior designer Warren Platner (1919-2006) and Knoll.  A wire metal chair that makes a solid design statement.

The chair is a mid century modern staple that has become a timeless standard in home decor.
A curvilinear and sculptural base made of nickel plated steel rods requiring as much as 1,000 welds...the Platner collection of furniture is both classic in silhouette but modern in form.

I like these chairs or any piece in the collection (from tables to ottomans) paired with more traditional furniture...creating a playful contrast between old and new.

Grey outdoor patio in Melbourne, Australia

Today I bring you a lovely apartment in the heart of Melbourne Australia. Grounded in neutral tones of gray and white with a hint of orange to add style, the apartment has a modern mid century edge to it.

Simple, contemporary, soothing home decor. I like.

My favorite is the outdoor space with the gray and white chevron rug.  Would love to hang out there with a cold Perrier with lemon in it...with my laptop, a pile of magazines and my phone (to chat the afternoon away).   Dreaming.

No rhyme, no reason, no plan...just some random things I am liking for the home right now!  A brass bird, a gold and white floral vase, a ceramic jar, a coffee table with a recycled wood top, an elegant floor lamp and some nesting bowls.

Happy Tuesday (again)!




Foyer of Villa Della Costa

Last week, while researching my post on homes for sale priced at over $100 million dollars, I happened upon this relative bargain of a gem in Santa Barbara at $35 million dollars.

This home is named Villa Della Costa.  It is 5 bedrooms, 8 baths on 103 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  Listed by Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews, this newly built estate is described as having a "sprawling single level floor plan".  The bones of this home are all premium with hand honed Walnut floors and steel windows and doors and with antique roof tiles from Spain and Portugal.

Wonder who will buy this home?  Wonder if they might invite me over for a stay?  They should know I might never leave!
