bag

Well color me surprised! If you read this blog and are familiar with The Big Girl Bag, you know I endorse spending a paycheck on a handbag that will pair with everything, never go out of style, and last forever. And the math supports it: 3-4 moderately priced handbags (Coach, Marc by Marc Jacobs, etc.)… [Cont.]

Working in the world of style and surveying an almost constant stream of beautiful things, it’s unusual to develop obsessions. Simply, I see a lot and while I speak passionately about the things I love (Balenciaga Giant Work bags, antique chandeliers, J.Crew), I am rarely really impressed. Enter The Woods Fine Jewelry. With a sensibility that reflects… [Cont.]

Dining Room Dramatic

chandelier

While doing some pro bono work for an old friend, I happened across this incredible fixture. Ignoring the awful choice of that mirror in the background*, this chandelier embodies a 70s sexiness while still maintaining a modern sensibility. It will add the perfect amount of attitude to a traditional dining room.  *Merchandising 101: don’t match… [Cont.]

They’re in, they’re out. They’re back in, they’re back out. Trends are quite fickle regarding knee-high boots, so how about this: buy them if you like them and forget whether they’re ‘in’ or ‘out’ this particular season.* If you need convincing, knee-highs are great over skinny jeans and a sweater and with a skirt or… [Cont.]

Can you still ‘Love The Local’ (where you go out of your way to support local businesses because doing so is good for the community) even if ‘the local’ is in another city? I think you can. Supporting locally owned business isn’t limited to our Metro-area, especially when places like Jayson Home & Garden exist. … [Cont.]

CH54-05

It’s difficult to get excited about certain pieces of furniture, and I put dining chairs into the ‘meh’ category (especially considering the typical price tags attached). Unless you’re splurging for a mid-century icon or going in a different direction all together*, there isn’t a ton of inspiration in this category. Which is why I really like… [Cont.]

When I moved to Boulder in 2009, the economy was still shaky and many local businesses were reeling from the financial crisis of the prior year; some closed, others were on the brink, and it took a while for our town to recover. But Boulder is back baby! New stores are popping up all over,… [Cont.]

bookshelf

Bookshelves, both freestanding and built-ins, can be so much more than merely a shelf.for.books. Consider transforming yours from functional into fabulous with the following: 1. Books- Pick those the mean the most to you from all categories (hardcover, paperback, vintage, coffee table, etc.) and, on each shelf, stack them- some from the left, others to the right, some… [Cont.]

pendant

Hanging pendants have replaced sconces as the de rigueur lighting for luxe bedrooms. Restoration Hardware, known for their vast selection of industrial-style lights, has a few pendants that would look badass in a bedroom. While it’s definitely a departure from the classic option, it’s an inspired choice if you’re looking for a little more drama.
