Simple. Rustic. Elegant. I love this gorgeous bouquet! It would be stunning paired with a romantic gown, at an outdoor wedding under the stars. <3

I am IN LOVE with the new Allegra bedding line we are carrying at Pom Pom Interiors! It is incredibly versatile and can easily be incorporated into a myriad of different design styles. This certified organic line is exquisite with its gorgeous embroidery insets that are 9 1/2″ wide running from top to bottom and surrounded with a 1/2″ flange.

It is made of my favorite fabric - ORGANIC Belgian Linen - and comes in two color ways: white and flax. We currently have it on display at our Beverly Hills location {where I conveniently work} and I've already gotten TONS of compliments about how luxurious it looks.

Wouldn't it be fun to swap out the King shams and mix in our Peace & Love Shams for a more youthful look?

If you are interested in purchasing the Allegra line or the Peace & Love Shams, please visit our store in Beverly Hills {432 North Canon Drive} or visit our website here.


I'm hungry and foodgawking... and came across these BEAUTIFUL Bramble Jelly Shots over at the jelly shot test kitchen and just HAD to share the recipe. Wouldn't these be super fun to share at this weekends Memorial Day BBQ?

Recipe by Toby Cecchini and reprinted from the NYT Magazine Blogs
For the float:
6 ounces crème de mûre (blackberry liqueur)
7 grams (1 packet) Knox unflavored gelatin
1 package (3 ounces) grape-flavored Jell-O gelatin
1 cup hot water
In a small mixing bowl, sprinkle the Knox and the Jell-O into the hot water and stir until completely dissolved, 5 to 7 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes, then stir in the crème de mûre. In a small, nonreactive baking dish or loaf pan, pour a few drops of cooking oil (grapeseed works well) and wipe out with a paper towel, coating the entire vessel with the barest layer. Pour blackberry float mixture in and set to chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to overnight, making certain it is level.
For the gin sour:
1 cup gin (lemon infused) (Note: vodka may be substituted!)
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
28 grams (4 packets) Knox unflavored gelatin
1 cup hot water.
Juice enough lemons to give you 2/3 cup juice, keeping the hulls as you squeeze. Roughly chop the squeezed hulls and put them in a coverable container along with the gin and the lemon juice. Leave at room temperature for at least 2 hours. It’s a good idea to do this before starting the float, so that by the time that has firmed up, your infusion is ready to go. When the float layer is firm, bloom the gelatin in the hot water by sprinkling it slowly while stirring, and continuing stirring until fully dissolved. Add the sugar and stir until that is also fully dissolved. Strain the gin mixture off from the lemon hulls through a fine sieve or chinoise and add it into the gelatin mixture, stirring well. Over a spoon, so as not to gouge a divot in the float layer, pour the lemon sour mix onto the float layer and return to refrigerator, again checking for levelness. Chill overnight. When ready to serve, cut into squares, or use a cookie cutter for shapes, and pull up carefully, using a cake spatula to get under the float layer. Garnish with a blackberry and/or a thin wedge of candied lemon.

Ikat. Neutral. Accent Chair. ON SALE? I'll take TWO please ;)

Available online and in stores at Macy's


It's no secret I am in love/obsessed with chevron patterns. Take a look at this blog, they are everywhere. Come into my house and you will find a 8x10 foot chevron area rug in my living room. By next week, I will have chevron euro pillows on my bed (shipping across the country as we speak). Ask me for my business card, and get one of these:

{of course in my favorite color and font}

I would love to give a huge, "THANK YOU" to Seattle based pixelimpress on etsy for these 'seriously cute' chevron business cards! I had been looking for something a bit more colorful and fun and when I came across her work, I just HAD to have them. She offers them on her etsy shop in a square size, but I wanted a traditional business card size which she was happy to switch to.

The color palette she works with are all equally beautiful and I LOVE that you can mix and match the color of your chevron stripe with the color of your font. When I run out and need to order more, I think I will do a play with tone on tone for a dramatic look.
Here is a little more information on pixelimpress:

"I love paper. I love patterns and colors. I love modern and traditional. I love trying to find the unexpected yet beautiful way of mixing all of the above to create a look that's unique. You can email me at pixelimpress [!at]" In researching her, I found she keeps a blog too! Please visit her awesome blog for some wonderful posts and to see more of her incredible work.

I've been secretly obsessed with turquoise/blue/teal furniture for about 8 years now and REALLY want to incorporate some into our new house. Found some of these... what do you think?

I like the color of this one, but the style may be a little too formal for me.

This one is at the TIPPY TOP of my list right now. I can't decide if I should order 2 of them to be used as bedside tables or one for my entry way. The height is a little big for a bedside table but I just LOVE the way it looks... AND its on SALE!
This sweetie is the perfect size for a bedroom but I'm not sure how I feel about the gold around the edges.

I really like the simplicity of this one from CB2, and while its priced right I don't like that it lacks concealed storage.

This is my second favorite... kind of like a red headed step child. I would take it and love it if it was given to me but its not my first choice. But the color is perfect!

Which one do you like best?

I know this is a little late to be posting about the current craze of rose gold, but I just couldn't help myself...

In the process of starting my etsy shop {vintage loops}, I have found a new obsession with searching all the goodies that sweet etsy dealers have to offer... and I am LITERALLY in LOVE with this ring I found! Its very talented maker is EidelPrecious, based in Toronto, Canada. Oh how I could imagine wearing this ring EVERYDAY... sigh.

But it got me thinking about the 'trend' of rose gold... and in my opinion, I don't think its a trend at all. Call me old fashion, but I have always loved rose - and yellow - gold, and I happen to wear it everyday. So I did a little searching and found these beauties for you to fast your eyes on!

This ring from Barneys would be equally as stunning to wear...

how about encorporating rose gold into your home with these beautiful rose candlesticks?

I DIE over this smokey quartz cocktail ring! Would look so glamorous with a black leather outfit.
or how about that favorite outfit of yours getting kicked up a notch with these rose gold pumps!

This watch has been on my list for the longest time and I STILL want it!

So what do you think of the rose gold trend? Here to stay or leave behind?

The blogs were abuzz the other day when design*sponge posted this image of a room with a shocking pink coffee table. Some have had serious objections to its bright pop to the room, but I have to say, I fell in love immediately!

I think the neon pink livens up what could have been a dark and stormy room! So it got me thinking, in what other ways can we incorporate unexpected brightness?

The pink on the chairs here really makes that boring table fun.

I would adore a huge pink desk for my office! I don't think Andrew would like it very much, but its just so glam!

The shocking pink interior of these heavy carved bookcases are JUST sublime! The Gothic feel of the room is much softer by bringing in the unexpected.

SO what do you think of these uses of the color pink? Not exactly something I would have thought of doing, but I really love the element of surprise each one of these rooms evokes.

Browsing one of my favorite Designer's blogs - JPM Design - and she found this really fun image challenge! At first glance these images both appear to be the same room. But if you look closely you can see there are actually different... One room cost over $10,000.00 while the other comes in around $4,000. Can you tell which is which?

The Loophole is about to undergo a SERIOUS renovation.... stay tuned!

Wednesday, May 4, 2011


I have been searching for some ideas for our master bedroom for quite some time, and it seems the one theme I keep coming back to is clear: upholstered headboards, symmetry and dramatic lighting. When talking to Andrew I had suggested a neutral almost all white palette with pops of turquoise, navy and gold as accents... but looking at all of these images, I don't see any of that here. I guess its a lot harder than I thought to imagine since I can't seem to find exactly what style we are as a couple yet.

Well, dream on these images for a bit and hold tight to see what we come up with!
