Domino Magazine. This bold zebra wallpaper creates a dramatic entrance into the living room. Wallpapering the walls and the ceiling makes an otherwise small narrow space appear larger. Via Here

Dreaming of the Serge Mouille Lamp

Room by Oliver Furth From Maison de LUXE at Greystone. The LUXE Magazine Event  Serge Mouille Three-Arm Floor Lamp
I have been in love with this lamp since the second I laid eyes on it. Oh how I wish it were not $7,610

From DWR Has anyone seen anything similar in a poor mans version?

Serge Mouille Three-Arm Floor Lamp
Designed by Serge Mouille
Serge Mouille designed his angular, insect-like lights as "a reaction to the Italian models that were beginning to invade the market in 1950," which he criticized for being "too complicated." His large-scale Three-Arm Floor Lamp (1952) has a kinetic, sculptural aesthetic that evokes a sense of movement in space. All of the arms can be rotated in various directions, allowing for ample, well-directed lighting for any task. Mouille designed the Three-Arm Lamp for a client whose instructions were simply, "I want a big light because I have clients in South America who have huge rooms." All of his lighting solutions feature Mouille's hallmark signatures as a designer: the way the arms are joined to the diffusers, the washer and six-sided screw hardware, the form of the reflectors, and the refined lines of the steel tubing. Bulb (not included): 75W/E26. Made in France.
  • Three arms can be adjusted in any direction.
  • Shades are produced using the original molds, proportions, materials and techniques.
  • Each lamp is stamped and numbered.

Fireplace LOVE!

ELLE DECOR - Do you think it works? Love it beyond
 A steel fireplace, painted black, hangs from the ceiling of a Victorian-­era home in South Africa, which was given an update by architect Antonio Zaninovic and decorator Yelda Bayraktar.

Brown + Green + Black= a Fab Breakfast Nook

I love when someone has the guts to mix off colors (brown, green and black) and crazy  wall paper! The result is superb! This is where my friend Lisa (who is beyond gorgeous) and her two gorgeous little daughters's spill cereal. Heaven.

Coolest paint EVER! Whiteboard walls.

Remember when you were not allowed to write on the walls?   Idea Paint is a white paint (although it comes in other colors) that you can apply to any wall or smooth surface to create a dry- erase wall.   I'm obsessed - what about you?
