Don't Forget Your 5th Wall !

Hey There . . .

When I was at the Kips Bay Designer House one of my favorite things were the custom hide rugs I found in three of the rooms.  Gorgeous !  I have always  loved the texture of hides and these rugs are truly amazing works of art.

Take a look at the patterns and colors available from Kyle Bunting - pretty spectacular !


Just A Day in the City . .

And lastly . . . 

We didn't have a lot of time on this trip, and hate to say it did rain a bit, but we had one gorgeous day to  run around.  Bree, Mekenzie and I were just happy to be there.  When Mekenzie and I looked at our pictures from the trip it was funny how many of the same things we saw !  Thought we'd share . . .

View from our rooms at the Ace Hotel.

ICFF Manhattan 2013

Hi All . . .

The main reason for our trip to the big city was the ICFF Spring show.  This is a small show filled with the newest and most unique accessories, wall papers, and furnishings.  I go every year and this year, was no exception.  I always come across something special.  Take a look at a few new finds.

These are custom door pulls (with a really big lady lamp in-between that's just cool)

Outdoor furniture finds

Vases and accessories

Love the snake leg side table and always see the house - o - corrugated cardboard.  

This was my favorite find.  LOVE this new wall paper introduction... 

Newest from Phillip Jeffries

Acoustic wall panels . . . fun

More interesting and unique outdoor furniture

Just funny

Stopped to see my vendor Eskayel and show off a few pictures of resent installs where I have used their papers
