Favorite Glass and Silver Christmas Ornaments

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas less than three weeks away, it is high time to start decorating the house for the holidays. I have always preferred a more restrained color scheme, and I think glass and silver accented with blue and pale pastels are so elegant and festive. That’s not to say I don’t […]

Cloches (aka Bell Jars)

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Cloches, which are also known as bell jars or bell glasses (“cloche” is French for “bell”), were originally invented to help hold in moisture and protect tender plants from harsh weather, insects and other potential hazards. In gardening literature, they were first mentioned around 1630, and they are listed among mandatory garden tools and equipment […]

Fabulous Tealight Candle Holders

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

After what has been a record warm fall and beginning of winter here in the northeastern US, the chill has started to set in and I finally feel like cozying up inside (it wasn’t until the second half of December I changed to winter curtains – it just didn’t feel right when it was in […]

Beautiful Christmas Decor From Denmark

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

I recently discovered the fabulous Danish company Walther & Co and instantly fell in love with their understated, monochrome and rustic aesthetic. Very Scandinavian country shabby chic. It’s the sort of stuff that makes me wish I had an old renovated farmhouse somewhere in the Swedish countryside (decorated like this) where I would gather all […]

Adorable Wooden Shelves From Ferm Living

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Just the other day, I came across these adorable little house-shaped wall wooden shelves from Ferm Living (which happens to be one of my favorite stores for funky wallpaper designs, tea towels, vinyl wall art and decor in general – everything they sell is fabulous!). The shelves are made from oak (smoked oak, no less) […]

Classic And Contemporary Wall Lights

Monday, February 21st, 2011

While it may seem like they are mostly there for utilitarian purposes, light fixtures can have a huge impact. We just had a new ceiling pendant lamp put up in our bedroom the other day, and it completely changed the look and feel of the room. It went from being a space we never spent […]

Metal wall art can be so many things – purely ornamental wall decor, illuminating, informative, reflective, warming, functional, etc. Today’s post has a little bit of everything and incorporates vintage, functional and solely decorative pieces, and without further ado, here they are: Raindrops First out are these great vintage mid-century modern pieces by Curtis Jere.

Wall Candle Holders

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Fall is around the corner and the air is getting crisper and the days shorter. Candles are nice any time of year, but I especially like them in the fall and winter, a little bit of cozy comfort in all that darkness and coldness. And they’re perfect when you have company over too. Not only […]

10 Gorgeous Nature Wallpaper Designs

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

Wallpaper, invented by the Chinese around 2,000 years ago and popular for centuries all over the world, sadly fell out of favor in the 80s and 90s, but is finally making a big comeback. My earliest memory of wallpaper is these murky brown grasscloth ones my parents had all over our house in the 70s […]

Tulip wall sconce

Wall lights have been popular for centuries, and they have certainly come a long way from the wall candle holders of the middle ages. Today you can find pretty much any design you can think of to illuminate your walls (although candles are still a very popular choice). As you know by now (if you […]

Unusual Wall Decor – Hotel Fox, Copenhagen

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

So many hotel rooms are so bland and boring that you forget what they looked like the minute you walk out the door (and some are so bad you can’t wait to leave). But thankfully not all of them. Some hotels take their interior design to new heights, and create rooms you love to spend […]
