Friday Faves

Happy Friday to Everyone! I actually took a vacation day today to install my show in West Hartford, CT that I've been gabbing about for the past week! It's a lot of work; gathering together your work, signing and numbering everything, matting it, and making the labels. I'm pretty excited for this long weekend because I sure do need a rest. Here are a few of my favorite things from the past week.

Though I miss many magazines that have folded in the past year and a half, the online design mags are quite impressive. Clover Magazine had the most incredible Rob Southern spread. I love this intimate but exciting little sitting room and I'm seeing these gorgeous Oriental rugs everywhere.

Have I mentioned that I'm helping a client re-wallpaper their master bathroom? I'm looking for some fun pink and white prints and this one by Katie Ridder might just work. I love the shape and the pinky/salmony color.

I know many of my favorite blogs have been snarking on Lonny Mag but I really like it. I can't get enough of the adorable and creative interiors and the links that are attached to EVERY object. It's quite a dream for someone with ADD/loves to shop for home stuffs. This light sweet bedroom is one of my favorite rooms in the newest issue of Lonny. This room was by Sara Gilbaine.

Alright, ya'll (I just downloaded about 10 new country songs on itunes. Don't judge me). I have to go get ready for this show! I hope if you're in the area you'll drop by. It's at Cosi's in West Hartford, CT and runs from today for just 6 weeks! I hope you have amazing long weekends and fun/romantic/special Valentine's Days!!

Good for you! I love the Ridder stuff as you know-- every paper and fabric is adorable. Have fun in WH! I love that town, especially Ann Howard!

Have you checked out Secondhand Rose for your master bath. An Apartment Therapy post today reminded me about that source. Cool wallpaper and unique. Good luck with your show.

Lynn, THANK YOU. I've been trying to remember that source for a few weeks! Thanks.

Marisa--I hate to tell you this but YUMMY Ann Howards is gone and has been for many years. :( SO SAD

Thanks CJ and welcome to the blog!
