Not helping my obsession!

These images of painted bentwood chairs are really not helping my obsession. I have yet to find a pair of my own. I know I will, I just hope is soon!!! Thanks for putting up with my ranting, I just can't vent to Bobby about it anymore. Thanks for the support and let me confess once and for all, I'm a chair addict, a pack rat. How about you? Is there something your obsessed with? I would love to know. The Interior Design anonymous group is officially open for calls!!!!

It's almost Friday which only means more chair hunting. Yay!!!!

Must Have!!!

Need two of these babies for our dining room asap. I'm still searching for my bentwood chairs which I'm no longer frustrated about. I know I will find them eventually!!! In the mean time the chair fairy must have read my previous post on the matter because over the weekend he/she granted me with three fabulous mid century modern chairs for absolutely nothing. Can't wait to share them with you!!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Pure Envy!!!

Terrible title I know but one can't help but feel a bit of non malicious envy towards Jenna Lyons. Dream job, Dream home and hopefully a happy family. OK, I'm done feeling sorry for myself and will move on to admire Jenna's fabulous town home in Brooklyn which the only thing I'm really envious of.

The Farrow and Ball paint Jenna used on the doorways enhances the architecture details of the home.

Fabulous open lay out. Love the details on the ceiling and the fireplace.

The exposed pipes give the kitchen an industrial feel as well as the stainless steel open shelves.

The seating area off the kitchen has to be one of my favorite spots in the home .

Scratch that, Jenna's closet which was a bedroom she converted has to be by far my favorite space in the home.

The ever so popular Domino cover that made us all want to paint every room in our homes black.

Love the floors, the tub, the light fixture! What's not to love?

By far one of my favorite nurseries of all time, the crib has been recently replaced by a big boy bed.

The most amazing outdoor space in Brooklyn for sure!

I hope you got to enjoy Jenna's home once again and if you feel a bit of envy don't feel ashamed she does have a fabulous life and so do we!!!!!

I've been searching for weeks for four of this babies. I have managed to convince myself that four bentwood chairs would be the perfect addition to our small patio, specially painted in a soft aqua color. So far I've had no luck. This weekend I plan to go hunting to every thrift store in South Florida. Wish me luck! I think I'm going to needed (:

I Love this dining space by Ruthie Sommers. The women is a genius when it comes to design.
I love the classic lines of the chairs with the modern Saarinen table and the whimsy the different color chairs add to the room. The black and white stripe walls contribute a bit of drama to the space. Don't you just love it?

Michele and Patrick yet again have knocked it out of the park with Lonny's latest issue. I love it even more than the last, I'm slowly becoming an addict. Sorry for the disturbing reference. I must say Michele's new apartment happens to be my favorite space in the whole entire issue. You can find below my favorite images from this issue.

P.S Michele you are doing such a fantastic job. I've had the pleasure of communicating with you via email and you have always been a sweetheart. Thank you to you and Patrick for the amazing job you are doing and for feeling the void we all felt after Domino folded.

My Bookshelf challenge!

(updated Bookcase)
Hello my loves! I hope you are having a fantastic week. Guess what? I need your help yet again and this time is not choosing the perfect area rug or wallpaper but to help me persuade Bobby. You see he installed my beloved Ikea shelves and the same night I accessorized it with items I had scattered through out the house. Deep down I was never happy with the way it looked and I knew I will change it eventually. Last Wednesday I had one of those restless nights when you can't fall asleep no matter what, I knew exactly what to do with my time. I immediately jumped out of bed, grabbed my ipod to not wake Bobby up and started looking for any wrapping paper I had in our spare closet. I knew I wanted to cover the books since I wanted a more uniform look (Bobby hates it), when I ran out of paper I proceeded to use leftover fabric from the drapes in our bedroom. I'm pretty pleased with the way the shelves turned out although all the tweaking is not completed. Please be honest and hopefully you will like the updated image better than the previous image. Can you help me convince Bobby to leave the books cover? Pretty Please!!!!

I want to hang outside!!!!

As the temperatures rises, I dream more and more of a beautiful outdoor space of my own.
I found the most adorable bistro table and chairs on Craigslist, which I hope will still be available on Sunday, my only day off this week. I can't wait to get my hands on it and share the before and after with you.
Don't you just love spring? It just makes me happy!!!
I hope you have a fabulous Easter weekend!
