These images have me positively inspired. I know I’m always going on about exposed beam and brick and that perfect rustic feel, so why stop now? Southwestern decor in particular has that perfect earthen-meets-modern vibe, featuring cowhide, kilim, wrought iron, exposed wood and stone, and rich, colorful patterns. What do you think?

Happy Wednesday, all! Today I’m guest posting over on A Newfound Treasure.
A peak at what I’m lusting after …
It’s no surprise really that I swoon over yellow gold home accents as well. There’s something so elegant about a heavy piece of gold armor on a tabletop or a surprising gold and cream chevron print on the wall. But what I really love about gold home accents, is that because of their already formal “feel”, the mediums have a whole lot more legroom to get funky. Take the AREAWARE gold piggy bank – it’s a pig, used in every trendy designer, fashion blogger, and magazine editor’s home design – but it’s a pig, people! What makes this little piggy so special? That perfect gold metallic sheen …

If you haven’t heard of the DANNIJO brand and designing duo (sisters Jodie and Danielle), you’re missing out. In addition to their jaw-dropping baubles, the pair took to design in this photo shoot for the Coveteur a few weeks back, and it’s just plain awesome.

I was bit by the travel bug a long time ago, and though we’re on a budget now, it certainly doesn’t stop me from dreaming in air travel, brasseries, foreign languages, the ever-popular tourist traps, rows of quaint shopping streets, and marble-lined museums.
I love the idea of incorporating vintage maps – or any maps, really – into home design, especially because the images remind me of where I’ve been and where I most definitely want to go. Plus, maps are inexpensive, but look luxe on your living room and bedroom walls.

I first encountered and then babbled about this stunning dining room here (the rainbow of pastels = divine.) But on second look, I was struck at how perfect those egg-shaped, sleek modern chairs looked set against the heavy farm table.
Which leads me to my current design obsession: the farm table + eames chair pairing. Request: a second dining room, stat.
And, believe it or not, some of the sweetest eames chairs are available at Linens ‘n Things; check out the Space Living 1950’s Modern Shell Side Chair + the Space Living 1960’s Mid Century Rocking Chair. As for the sturdy farm table, I prefer to hunt down my perfect table at flea markets and garage sales, then coat the entire piece in a glossy white or even matte chalkboard black paint (you know, if I had room for all of this design dreaming.)
