Ta Da!

Look what arrived on my doorstep this Saturday!!! My suzani! And it's bigger and better than I thought it was going to be. I also said i would post a photo of my newly framed Good Shape Design print. They go together perfectly! Or least I think so :) My husband even thinks it's great. So I have to give myself and A++! I am finally feeling like our master bedroom is complete. I still want a new bed though. ;)

Oh do I make the pretty?

I have to have a TV in our bedroom. No question. But I hate that it just sits on top of this ugly dresser that I painted, off center (because of my Tivo and DVD player sit on the other side), and chunky looking. So, I've been searching around some designer's projects to see how they use TV's as decor. I love the idea of using a buffet or credenza to place a flat screen on. You still have the storage space you need for clothes or whatever, but I think it brings something nontraditional to the room. I love this Chinese credenza on ebay right now. What do you think? Is a buffet or credenza the way to go instead of an armoire?

This is the Chinese buffet on ebay. I just wish it was white.

This room is designed by Betsy Burnham. See the TV? This is my bedroom color scheme. I love the white credenza!

Or what about this one shown in a room designed by Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise?

Sun Jars by Tobi Wong

Just saw this over at Apartment Therapy's blog and had to share with my readers. They are called Sun Jars from designer Tobi Wong and you can purchase them HERE. Leave these sandblasted jars in the sunlight during the day and watch them come alive with sunlight at night. I just love the beautiful orange glow they give off.

Great Stylish Dallas Restaurant

Last night, my husband and I took my Dad out for a nice dinner since he was in town for a business meeting. Some friends of mine told me I should try Tillman's Roadhouse. Well, let me tell you..........FABULOUS food but even BETTER mouth dropping decor.

I decided to recover my bench I bought at the Roundtop flea market in April. What do you think? I also bought the curtains at Ikea last weekend. I'm thinking about doing a really pretty trim on them....

Ebay Purchase

Because Carrie and Adam's home inspired me so much, I went ahead and bought my very own Suzani. So what do you think? $90 and it's 11' x 7'...I think I got a pretty good deal!

La Times - Carrie & Adam's Home

Trolling through my daily reads I came upon this little bit of inspiration over at Turquoise. Vanessa posted about her friends Carrie and Adam's home that is featured in today's La Times Home & Garden. Everything about their hope inspires me. Is it not fabulous!!!!

I Love Me Some Jayson Home & Garden!

Man- I forgot home much great stuff is on Jayson Home & Garden. I might not be able to afford a lot of it, but it at least gives me some ideas of what I like and what to look for at flea markets or on ebay. You never know, sometimes you can find items that look like these for $10. All they might need is a little pick me up!
