Curiosity Aflutter

Image: Lamp at Hotel Beauchamps, Paris (from my iPhone)


Last year I saw the lamp above while staying at Hotel Beauchamps in Paris. I have not been able to stop thinking about it since. I would love to figure out a way to replicate this lamp. Perhaps A. could make a wood and glass box, I can buy the butterfly and lamp parts. I love the simplicity and elegance of it.

Another project to add to my list...

Fresh and Green...



I love everything about this piece of furniture designed by Oscar de la Renta and available through Century Furniture. I love its color - green which is another fav at Kelly + Horne - the greek key drawer pulls, the detail on the feet and what I am going to assume is a marble top. This piece is just fabulous, not to mention the styling of the image: so fresh!

I have a chest of drawers at home that is now whispering makeover...

Mantra...



I know...this Keep Calm and Carry On poster, which was originally created in 1939 by the British government to help raise the morale of the people at the beginning of WWII, has been everywhere, but believe me when I say that this is the best mantra I can think of for myself today. Maybe it can come in handy for you too...
