lusting after

i need new throw pillows and these are the one!

make this outfit a room- elephant table

remember this article from the june 2008 domino magazine?  it was (and might still) be my favorite room.

circus gazebo

omg! from

but, i think i need to focus more on saving for

perfect pink nursery

inspired by

martha stewart weddings
via amanda nesbitt

start with:

weinrib rug (pic via making it lovely)

that's enough pink! now for the accents of light gold, chartreuse and lilac

yellow big dots curtain and valance fabric from purl soho
extra seating in this fabric

(changing table)
via shel terrific
i would want it golder... or more chartreuse-y

available here

it's super expensive, but maybe an andy warhol lover would get it off your registry?

or a rauschenberg lover?

this one is more affordable

krista ewart

i love krista ewart and i especially love that she doesn't follow the 80/20 color rule.  go for it! she was our bedroom inspiration back in the day (see the zigzag rug?) and somehow i went astray.  it would be so much easier to do our bedroom all at once instead of building bits and pieces... krista is leading me back to my original ideas.

this picture is amazing for the obvious reason- but the bed, wallpaper and curtain in the background make it so much better!

this room looks so expensive... i wonder if it would be possible to mimic it on a budget? probably would need a different table, then!

those large ceramic dogs pop up in a lot of her rooms

i'm bidding on a very similar elephant vase on ebay right now... it's only $10!

the bedroom...

i love how krista uses pinks and blues

this nursery is definitely easy to redo ourselves... nothing a little red paint can't fix.

tilbury lapis

the new dream headboard fabric has to be tilbury lapis, from calico corners.  it's so beautiful and it matches the colors of the bedroom.  would it be too risky to hang my new print above the bed? it's SO electric i can't let it stay in the tube.

gorgeous colorful apartment

check out this amazing apartment that i found on desire to inspire via micasa.  i love how they were able to infuse all the colorful modern art without over doing it.  i think it's all the white walls and accessories...
