Foldable and Fashionable

One of my favorite parts of a fancy dinner is the folded napkin usually found waiting on the my plate. And I’ve always loved the delicate, intricate art of origami. So I’m very pleased to see this cool new trend in window coverings emerge: origami-inspired curtains! So far I’ve found two creative versions of this […]

From Tiles to Textiles…

Maybe it’s my recent travels, but I’m drawn more than ever to this exotic textile pattern called Castello by Cowtan and Tout (below). It’s an embroidered linen blend based on Moorish tile motifs at Spain’s Alhambra Palace. I think it would look fabulous as bath towels. But then again, almost anything looks great in a […]

Fabulous Florence

Florence Broadhurst was a strong woman—an Australian dancer, musician, painter and designer, she established the Broadhurst Music Academy in 1926 and started her own line of wallpapers in 1959.

Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Patchwork Cowhide Rugs

I love me some cowhide rugs. For the longest time I had a zebra striped hide in my office that I was infatuated with. It brought just the right amount of fun and flare into that workspace. Now, these sewn and dyed cowhides by Kyle Bunting take that concept up a notch. He uses high […]

Shine On

If there was ever a time I needed a tropical island vacation, this was it. And since that won’t be happening in the near future, I’m going to instead gaze longingly at this luscious, silk ikat-print bedding by Shine Home. It’s so chic, colorful and modern and packs an exotic twist. Ikat is a dying […]

Color Stories: Pinks, Brown and Grey

I love this soft pink, charcoal and chocolate palette, inspired my good friend Ben Soleimani’s latest rug collection, Sakura, which premiered this spring. You can find Ben’s rugs at Mansour Modern, where I’ve bought many pieces over the years. Its chic and transitional styles make it one of my favorite vendors! Here’s a room that […]
