Furniture at the Philippine Embassy

Last night I was invited to the Philippine Embassy here in DC for a presentation of Philippine furniture manufacturers.  

Part of the proceeds from purchases went to the typhoon relief fund and I happily scooped up a few of these faux-bois tables/stools that come in many different finishes and are very well priced! 

Here are a few other pieces that caught my eye...

Petrified Slab Side Table, Top Polish, Black/White

Frizzante Table Lamp, Mirror Polished Stainless Steel

Brivo Freeform Console Table, Silver Leaf

Crazycut Side Table, Mirror Polished Stainless Steel

Kissing Butterflies Dining Table, LG

Chamcha Wood Dining Table, 2 Slabs Joined, SS Legs

Frizzante Floor Lamp, Mirror Polished Stainless Steel

Log Cocktail Table, Roman Stone

Pebble Coffee Table, Copper Patina

Let us know if any of these versatile pieces catch your eye and we can order them for you!

KW on a budget...

Love Kelly Wearstler?  

I's hard not to....with her southern sweetness and 
off -the-hook chic way of dressing and decorating...not to mention the fact that she is gorgeous and has a trophy husband who owns the coolest hotels in the coolest places...uh yeah.  We are just a little jealous.

Well, here's a way to get her fabulous wall-arty look pictured below for not much dough.

Her wallpaper collection will have you looking Kelly-fied in no time and we all know wallpaper is the easiest way to get a big bang for your small sized budget.

Of course to save even more money you could give your toddler a paintbrush but we can't promise you'll like the outcome ;)


PS: it also comes in tableware....

Punta Cana

Recently I made a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic....Here is what I saw!

Loved the architecture....

Loved the 5 pool(s)....there was even a pool on the rooftop!

 This charming restaurant rests on stilts over the ocean and the breeze was so relaxing...

The island is lush with vegetation and surrounded by pristine beaches which are postcard worthy....some even have pinkish sand from the abundant red coral living off shore.

Hope you enjoyed this little trip now 
that winter is almost here!

Remember those jeans with the gold embellishment on the pockets we were all begging for in the 70's?  Watch the ad HERE
(omg I STILL have that commercial in my head)
Now you can get the goldigger-ish glam at home instead.

Right now I'm loving gold home accents like the studded table 
(which comes in a console table and etegere version as well) and luxurious quartz mirror.  

The puzzle table is so versatile and with the recent popularity of all things tortoise, the lamp from Worlds Away is sure to be a hit.  

Organic elements from nature lend warmth to a space like the quartz lamp, driftwood sconce, feather pillow and mirror.  The Suzani pillow and sunburst light are classics I never tire of.  

If you aren't quite sure where to begin, shapely white and gold pendant fixtures are the perfect way to give your space immediate style.  

To purchase any of these items let me know and I'll make your goldigger jean dreams come true - Well, almost!
