feeling nautical…

well, it’s monday…and I can’t help but daydream of ALL THINGS NAUTICAL. not just because i love navy & white, horizontal stripes, and rope accents… but mostly because we’re leaving this week for a Mediterranean cruise for 1 month! i can’t wait to slip on my stripes and jump aboard!

suze’s glamourous pad


remember suze, the glamour magazine fashion editor? well, she’s sharing the photos of her gorgeous apartment taken by dan hallman this week on her blog dwellers without decorators. it is SO fabulous!

love the madeleine weinrib rugs, jonathan adler touches, and her eames chair…{one of my clients just bought the same one}
that mirror is to-die-for and don’t even get me started on the bookshelves!

love all the lacquer, patent leather, and drum shade light fixtures…
and the jonathan adler couch {and the fact that she saw jonathan at a party!}
and did you notice how she camouflages her tvs? it just fits right in the bookshelf and the dens tv is mounted in the corner.
well, i pretty much love EVERYTHING about her place…and i kind of want to move in.

{and it may look a bit familiar because her old place was featured in domino in 2005!}
go to her blog for some great NYC sources and fabric choices…because believe it or not, she has kids. great job suze!

Mademoiselle Chair by Kartell

Today I went to Galeries Lafayette { a french department store we are so lucky to have here in Dubai} to look for lamps for a few clients…and found myself stuck in the Kartell department dying over the pink floral Mademoiselle Chair

image via living etc.
The fabric is amazing…and the lucite legs of course. And you would never guess that they’re totally comfortable!

They look even better in person.

And here are the mini- ghost chairs that i’ve always loved too. I think Olivia needs one, it would be so cute next to mommy’s big version.

Love the purple side table too.
Too bad they aren’t the same price that I paid for my ghost chairs! I guess i’ll have to put these and the Mademoiselle on my wish list!

summer stripes

well, it’s june 1st and it feels like summer {cause it’s over 100 degrees here in dubai}. nothing says summer better than fun, fresh stripes…
