Eclectic Collections

This NY home is FULL of eclectic collections. B.D. Wong, the actor who plays a  forensic psychiatrist on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” has a bit of a problem with an accumulation of objects (I can totally relate).

The Painted Home by Dena

I found a new book that is filled with colorful inspiration. The Painted Home by Dena Fishbein takes you on a tour of her home, Seven Oaks Ranch. Dena is an artist and has spent years painting every surface in her home, the results are stunning.

"Surround yourself with things you love", is Dena's motto and she does this with fun vintage finds. A home is never done, one can always find something that needs embellishing...

Color, Color, Color

This home makes me's fun, filled with quirky collections and colorful finds.

This 1751 home was originally painted in whites and pastels. Kristin and Mark Nicholas have spent the past 14 years layering on brushstrokes in vivid colors. Kristin, a working artist known for her knit and crochet designs, has made their home a true reflection of her talent and spirit.

"There isn’t a room left that's how we found it," she says.
Everyone should put their own personal design stamp on the place they call "Home".

The Leather Pouf

The leather pouf is my new furniture obsession and I'm not the only one, as
I was searching for images, I found many blogs posting about this fun and practical accessory.

We had a vintage brown, perfectly worn pouf in the store for a while. We knew it wouldn't last long and once it was sold I realized what a wonderful addition it made to the vignette.

I would love to have this piece in my living room, I have given up on the idea of finding a vintage piece, but the new ones come is so many great colors.


I think an orange or turquoise pouf would make a fun addition to the room!
