High Point Furniture Market: Day 2

Great Entryway at Cyan

What a different chair- it's shearling! (at Cyan)

Love this vignette at Ferguson Copeland

What a feminine living room - also at Ferguson Copeland

What a cool thing to put on a book- a chain length paper weight

Arteriors has hands down the coolest lamps.  I am obsessed with this barnacle one.  

This "Poppy" lamp form Arteriors is at the top of my wish list, it would look great on a side side table that I have my eye on

Another great lamp at arteriors

Favorite find for day 2: this faux shagreen console table.  It would look awesome in our master bedroom. 

Beautiful lamp at Bungalow 5

My little brother, Carter, was picking out his leather chair as a belated graduation present- we all agreed he was a bit too big for this one!!

Another obsession: this chair by Jessica Charles for Hancock and Moore

Jessica Charles' inspiration board for her newest collection

I crossed one book of my list- Bryan Batt's Big Easy Style, which he graciously signed for me.  Can't wait to check out his holiday collection of gifts at Hazelnut next time I am in New Orleans

Best part of the trip: my mom was invited to the HIckory Chair event and I got to tag along.  Hickory chair has such beautiful furnishings and rubbing elbows with the likes of Tobi Fairley and Thomas O'Brien wasn't bad either :)

Loving this chartreuse ikat fabric

Another Market Obsession: so cheerful!
Finally found the prefect lamp for Seamus' man room.

Hope you all have a great weekend.  Seamus and I are celebrating our first Halloween here in Baltimore on Saturday.  Halloween kind of crept up on us so we are recycling costumes.  I'm going as Rainbow Bright and Seamus will be a cow.  What are you dressing up as?

High Point Furniture Market: Day 1

I had such a great time at High Point Furniture Market with my mom this past weekend.  We saw a bunch of great stuff and I found all sorts of new design inspirations for our house
These were my all time favorite finds at Market- framed geodes at Pheromone by Christopher Marley.  I am still drooling over them and I have the perfect place for three of them in the house
Beautiful antique bread boards from Europe 2 You.  My mom got these as presents for my brothers and me; she already has one and it is great for doing a really rustic and organic cheese and fruit spread.
These nickel trays with leather handles from Barbara Cosgrove would be perfect in Seamus' man room as a place to put his Scotch and Bourbon.
Another favorite find- I am still dreaming of this cocktail table from Dovetail.  
Festoni- love the lucite legged bench
Such an adorably feminine chair at Wesley Hall
I love this nailhead bench from Vanguard.  I have the perfect fabric in mind to upholster it in.

Loving the nailhead x-benches; they would be perfect upholstered in my faovirte china seas fabric and would happily at the foot  of our bed

Love this cabinet and mirror by Thom Filicia for Vanguard.
This is a great side tide by Michael Weiss for Vanguard.  Seamus has been asking for a a place to put his cup of tea so this might just be the perfect thing!

Another great side table
The full room
Love these pillows and still obsessing over nailhead
An awesome silver-leafed spool chair at Bentley Churchill
Love the Mad Men vibe at Dwell Studios
A cool side table by Dwell
Great cowhide bench at Festoni Attic

Fashion Friday: New York Style

I had such an incredible time in New York last weekend so I want to start off by saying a HUGE thank you to Larissa for letting me stay at her place.  We had such a great time, it was nonstop from the moment my feet hit the streets of NYC to the moment I boarded my train back to Baltimore.  Unfortunately I did not take as many pictures as I wanted; we had a late dinner at Lupa the first night and I think we were all so excited to meet/see one another (and star gaze at Jake Gyllenhal who was at the next table!!!) that none of us took any pictures!  The first night we ended up closing down three places and stayed out till four in the morning!- so unlike me.  But I did capture a good amount of pictures on the second day- unfortunately we were not looking (or feeling our finest).  Also the girls in NY are fierce- the way that they layer colors, textures, patterns etc just left me so intrigued (and feeling quite jealous).  Seamus and I are headed back to NYC in December and I am determined to bring my fiercest clothes.  So for a quick fashion Friday I have included what I wish I had in my closet for a day to night ensemble starting with a beautiful theory blouse.  Hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfits- have a great weekend everyone!  I am headed to High Point Furniture Market with my mother today so expect some great finds this upcoming week!
