Saw this  and I totally had to share.  UP is one of my favorite movies of all time.  And a team from National Geographic’s new show, “How Hard Can It Be?” was cool enough to try this for me

DeLonghi Gran Dama Super Automatic Espresso Machine (orig $3,500… now $2,299)

I am what you call a social drinker.  I drink alcohol only in a social setting and I usually only drink coffee in a social setting as well.  But I would still want something like this at home.  Maybe because I’m pretentious…. 🙂

Santos Platform Bed… I would like to take this entire room please…

(Orig $3459.. now $2271)

Central Station Furniture Square Root Lounge Chair (Org $562… Now $365) – Did I ever mention that I have a thing for chairs?  Okay furnitures in general but especially chairs.  I love the simplicity and the classic lines of this chair.  Not sure how comfortable it would be but I love it anyway.

Due to my current financial situation, my purchasing power has been extremely limited to almost… nothing.  But bought this gorgeous Jonathan Adler storage box for my nite stand from Gilt.  And I LOVE it.  I dumped all my crap in there and my nite stand looks super clean.  It makes me happy looking at it.  So it was totally worth not eating for couple of days.

Recently saw this Brinca Dada’s modern doll house on Gilt and I couldn’t believe my eyes.  Other than the fact that I would much prefer living in a house like this than to play with it,  I thought when John and I have kids, surely they would play with this kind of doll house.  If they don’t like it, I’m sure either I’ll force them to or get them tested to see if they are really my kids.

I truly heart simple | clean design.  These are ceramic white alarm clocks from West Elm.

 

Another great speech on Ted.

Saw Nathan Sawaya’s Lego art called “The art of the brick” on CBS Sunday Morning show couple of days ago.

Inntrax Wooden Crayons – WHITE BIRCH DESKTOP HOLDER WITH 24 TWIG CRAYONS   (Org $50… Now $25) – I love this idea and I also love the concept.  Not sure how often I would use something like this but It’s pretty cool regardless.

Recently saw this commercial and I was quite smitten by the overall look of the commercial.  Land Rover LR4 is a lovely car as well.

It’s true I love alot of things and Restoration Hardware is up there with DWR, West Elm, C2B and Muji.   I actually applied for a part time position at RH retail store and got rejected.  I’m sure my salary and title as “Director of Finance” as current position probably didn’t help the matter.

@ an Esty store “Sparkles Kitchen”  too cute

Right now, my small 1 bedroom apartment is overflowing with boxes, bags, paper, art supplies, and crates.  It’s getting so out of control that I am getting annoyed.  But with 5 events on my plate in next 45 days, I have no choice but to deal with the crazy/chaotic mess that I am creating in my living space.

This shoot was from couple of years back.  But I still love it whenever I see it.

Mr. Jonathan Adler has my dream job.  One of many dream jobs on my list.  Saw this “love & hate” jars and wondered how much I would LOVE to create things like this for living.  How satisfying and gratifying would my life be to be able to create things with my hands?  And YES, he has some freaking gorgeous things on his site.  Hate him!

Kana Surfboards – P40 Epoxy Board (Org $650… Now $449) – something I will probably never need but thought it was really cool and I do like the design and the color combo.

Elite Leather – Whitby Sofa  (Org $3720… Now $1375) – Gorgeous sofa.  If it wasn’t for our cats, I would LOVE this gorgeous sofa t be sitting in our living room.  It will go very well with the dark brown book cases that I have.

I could literally spend HOURS on TED.   Lanigan forwarded this to me and it is probably one of many many many reasons why I LOVE TED!

Not only because I shoot with Canon but because I like all things creative and clever, I really LOVE these Canon lens mugs.

Villa in Anadalucia by McLean Quinlan Architects

Saw this on Diggy’s blog (<- i am still not convinced that he’s writing this blog on his own).    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a house like this for me and John.  I mean who wouldn’t right?

Another cool find on Brooke Fraser’s blog : Solidarités International: Water talks

Recently saw this on Brooke Fraser’s blog and thought it was just amazing.

Not only because I wear glasses, but as someone who appreciates cool and creative things in general, this is an awesome video.  LOVE it!

Mad Men is back and everything feels right with the world.  I enjoy this show because I feel as though it slows down my crazy world at least for an hour.  Of course Don Draper is probably one of the most fascinating characters on TV right now and he’s incredibly handsome, so it makes it even more interesting to watch.  I actually have a friend who has a pix of Don Draper as a wallpaper in her phone.   She shall remain anonymous.

I recently found a blog that I really like called “twig & thistle“.  I totally adore her style and sense of creativity and innovative way of looking at design. |continue reading|

I totally ❤ bow ties and I found these on Etsy that are just to die for.  And I think I love these bow ties even more because these are for kids/babies. | continue reading |

Vitrocolor – Narrow Mouth Carafe (Org $36… Now $18) – Simple and elegant.  Just my style.  Although I would have no clue what to do with these bottles. | continue reading |

Armand Diradourian –  50% cashmere pillows (Org $255… Now $124) – such simple and clean style.  love it. | continue reading |

I was at the Ninth Street Espresso in East Village with some friends this past Saturday.  Good coffee, good company, and beautiful weather in NYC.  Sometime, there’s nothing better in life.

@ a shop called “The Meadow” in Portland.  Salt, chocolate, and flowers….

more flowers for events… feels like spring is right around the corner

Curtis told me about this pix during lunch one day.  He was moved to share this pix with right when I was telling him how I wanted a room full of books.  From floor to ceiling.  Karl Largerfeld… Of course I wished I was him for many many many reasons.  But here’s one more reason why I wish I was him!

The Cookshop is right around the corner from my office.  But on this day, I was definitely distracted by the bright red pepper shaker.  It was sooo pretty.

Simple, classy, and elegant clutch on Etsy.  Perfect for a bride. 🙂

I have been watching Ellen everyday this year.  Then today I came across these unbelievably gorgeous wedding pictures from her wedding.  Not only is she one of the funniest people on TV, she and I apparently have same taste.  I think if she had asked me to plan her wedding(which btw is very unfortunate she didn’t), I don’t think I would’ve changed anything about her wedding.  And let’s also focus on the fact that she had her wedding cake done by Sweet Lady Jane.  And believe you me, I’ve called this place the best bakery in the UNIVERSEEEEE…..

Here’s an Etsy find.  I am planning an event where mason jars will be used as part of the decor.  In my search of mason jars, I came across these vintage ball jars and I love ’em.  I love the subtle shade of blue, I love the simplistic design and I even love the rusted handles.

I recently had to plan a hotel rooftop party at sunset in TRINIDAD.  Unfortunately I was not able to attend due to work and family situation.  But while planning the party, I must’ve  spent literally  H-O-U-R-S looking at outdoor lanterns.  Then I came across “Casamidy“.  Love at first sight to say the least.  Perfect 10 on design, form, whimsey, color and even functionalty.  It really doesn’t get better than this.

John and I have been watching a lot of Olympics.  But since we don’t want to be blind sided by spoilers on the web and on the news, we’ve been watching most of it live.  This means, no skipping thru the commercials like we usually do.  But time to time, that’s not such a bad thing.  Serendipitously I came across this commercial that wove images which provoked raw human emotions together with artistic execution that was flawless.  Nike… did it again!

Restoration Hardware is one of my favorite store in the world.  I am actually sitting in a room where the wall was painted with “silver sage” from RH.  While browsing the site, I saw this “everlast desktop speed bag” and chuckled a little to myself.  Wondered what my co-workers would think if I had this on my desk.  Then realized that the item was completely sold-out.  And I did not find that surprising….

Cell phone telephoto lens.  Do I need to say more?  I would like one please.

I would like to think that I appreciate good design, regardless of whether it’s something that I would personally own or even like.  This “world links necklace would be one of those things.  This necklace isn’t something that I would buy or even wear but I think it’s a fantastic design and so incredibly clever 🙂  I totally appreciate that.
