Hi Friends here you go :). So I am running out of questions are there no more?

How about throw pillows for my small brown living room sofa, that bring in a butter yellow and aqua? Preferably Hamptons or Asian inspired.

Love all these for $40 each @ Elegant Touch

You are so talented! I have 2 requests if you are still taking them: I'm looking for a clean lined trundle bed for my son's room, not too expensive (I loved your sons' rooms!)and practical upholstery fabric (to withstand kids)for my dining room chairs, I have white lattice back chairs with a dark table. Thanks!

$990 Via Posh Baby 

Ikea Malm $ 129

Love this bed - I would just throw a matress underneath. It is a rare moment when you actually use the trundle and kids don't care :)

$525- Hate the bedding but the bed is simple and comes in white

For the chair I would get white faux leather. You can wash it wth soap scrub and it never ruins. It can feel so real and it usually is inexpensive.

I am looking for the perfect white kitchen stools. for a traditional kitchen but would like to add a more modern touch without it looking foolish. needs to be sturdy enough and functional for kids but also look good too. any ideas?

I'm looking for the perfect black wood or metal end tables. Something big enough to put lamps on. Our living room is pretty saturated with brown wood tones, so black or even metal would help counterbalance things.

If Money is no object -  Hudson Furniture

Crate & Barrel $299

Black Laquer with metal Z Gallery $199

Z Gallery $199

I'm looking for a framed 34x48 inch chalkboard.
Go To  They make custom Blackboards and they are not expensive!

I need a hallway tree with storage and a bench in dark (almost black) wood. I have been looking for years but don't really know where to get the good stuff. Thank you!!!

Not what you are looking for but found it and LOVE it!

How about making something - This is what I got made by Custom Resource  in my NYC apartment


  1. Great finds!!! You are a great shopper, how fun this series is going to be!! Kathysue

  2. I agree with Kathysue - great finds!! Especially love those beautiful and oh so reasonable pillows!

  3. I'm looking for a console table for behind that couch that can be used as a desk (preferably a too seater desk) so I'm looking for a wider sofa table, but not as wide as a dining table (maybe 25" and about 60" long.

  4. Hi. I'm looking for a table lamp that is roughly 27" tall. I would like a peacock blue gourd lamp or a big round brass/gold lamp with a tall shade. Most gourd lamps are either 31" tall (too big) or 23" (too small). I could REALLY use your help on this one!

  5. I need accessories for my buit-ins! I like french/traditional but def. am a little quirky. Got any ideas?

  6. Hi! I'm looking for the perfect paint color for my master bedroom...either a light blue (gray?) or green. My bedding is off white with pillows that have a pattern, is there a way I can attach a pic of the pillows to send to you?

  7. I need bedding for my 4 yo daughter's queen bed. Walls are robins egg blue. Bed is black iron. I'm not picky, but my tastes are on the modern side with a touch of Anthropologie, and all I can find is baby pink quilts like PBK. My daughter does not care, but I do! Any suggestions? Thanks!


  8. Hi Suze. If you're still taking requests... I'd love to be able to find a great new set of bedding that's guy-friendly for my man, but not "man lives here" for me. I like neutrals- cream, (no white though) navy, gray, etc.

    I'm planning to purchase the Marlo Bed from Room & Board.


  9. Oh no, looks like my comment didn't post yesterday. If you are still doing the series: I am looking for a striking bench (less than $500) to put under a substantial mirror (very heavy, with curvy, thick black frame and antique champagne finish - 65x43in). It's for an entryway and needs to be between 45-55inches wide. Love the series and your blog!

  10. I am looking for a great but not too pricey upholsterer in New York City...any recommendations.
