Some of my favorite looks from David Collins, a fabulous London-based interior designer who recently passed away.
Now here’s something that you don’t see every day… but do you dare lean against the thing??
While renovating their Manhattan loft, artist Melissa Marks and interface designer Vicente Caride collaborated with Suzan Wines of I-Beam Design to create an amazing stair rail and wall constructed from nearly 20,000 LEGO bricks:
…I-Beam designed the stairs, structure and Mondrian inspired openings based on LEGO® dimensions (measured by dots) while the Marks/Caride family worked with Sean Kenney, one of two licensed LEGO Artists based in New York City, to create a flow of receding or intensifying color up and down the stairs. The final design is composed of an evolving series of additions made by the people who live, work and play in the space.
These cheeky throw pillows by London designer Karen Hilton are a bit irresistible!
NatureMill Composter - no smell, no worms, lives under the counter.
while i do already have an outdoor compost bin, i still want this! sometimes it’s just too cold or wet out for me to run something out to the compost bin which means it gets thrown in the trash by my boyfriend. having an indoor compost that doesn’t smell or require any worms would be amazing!
I’m really into beautiful lanterns lately. Use these pretty ones by Lit Decor with some tea lights and you’ll add instant “aaaahh” to any room.
When I win the lottery, I’m going to purchase a studio apartment to be my personal wardrobe room, and this will be the lounging area for my friends to hang out, drink booze and play dress up.
I need all of this… for one night… with the theme song to “Miami Vice” playing in the background.
How to Store Jewelry with Style
I like to be very organized, probably more now than ever as my job at MTV was creating the program schedule (I did not make mistakes, otherwise over 90 million people would see it on TV). I find it difficult to concentrate if my home is a mess (hello OCD), especially my bedroom as it’s my “zen” place. Jewelry is especially difficult to organize because you want to be able to see what you have but it needs to look cute as well!
I’ve finally solved that problem…
Here’s another Shabby Chic Jewelry Holder for necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
It doesn’t need to end with just jewelry. Check out the Cosmetic Organizer above! This is perfect for the tiny NYC apartment that doesn’t have room for a vanity desk. Just mount this on your bathroom wall and easily apply make-up using your bathroom mirror! Being organized has never been so fabulous!
It’s times like these that I miss living in the country.
