    Happy new year! Thank you for sharing your lovely blog, and for introducing me to “Louise.” ;-) (The painting is here, and she is FABULOUS. I haven’t decided where to hang her yet but she’s going to right at home here.)

Mirror Mirror… For a Headboard?

3099208570_91185db00b

This gorgeous bedroom featured on {this is glamorous} last week caught my eye with its stunningly huge mirror headboard… I’ll admit – I’ve always wanted an oversized antique mirror to lean against a wall in my living room or entry someday, but the bedroom? I’m not sure… Then I remembered this room from Paul Costello. […]

    I would surely go with the first picture. How lovely! BTW, I visit your blog daily but never comment. It’s one of my favorites!

    I love this look. When I first moved out on my own, I only had a bedframe and would change the headboard all the time. Once I used a big vintage mirror. Thanks for sharing!
    Happy New Years!

    I adore old vintage mirrors, and the bigger the better!! But I’m not sure about using one as a headboard though! Although it looks pretty – the bottom one is my fav!
    And I’ll second that fear of it breaking!!
    Isn’t it some feng shui no-no to have a mirror reflecting your bed?!

    Hi Cassandra! I just wanted to say thanks. I just went to Paul’s web site and it made me smile :) I have been feeling a little down lately and questioning whether I really knew what I was doing. Sometimes following ones heart doesn’t always mean you made the right decision. Paul’s images made me realize that this is what it’s all about. And yes, I love the idea of the mirrored headboard!

    anon – thank you so much for leaving a comment!! i love to hear from the new people around here :)

    *L, i would have to agree that my fear of the mirror falling on me is greater than the fear of bad feng shui… maybe that comes from growing up in earthquakes in LA?!

    carol, i’m glad you found some needed inspiration in paul’s site. i just adore everything he does :)

    happy new year all!!

    I’ll take the first room, you take the second and we can be friends. I love the aged mirror and the quiet elegance. I have got to marry Santa.

    I love both of those for different reasons. I love the dramatic style of the top picture, but I also love the sheer drapes over the bed in the second. However I’m not so sure I would want a mirror for a headboard! Great pics though. =)
    Happy New Year!!

    Love the idea! I have just done a post myself on kids headboards. Would love your ideas on this too! Happy New Year!!!!

    Love them both, and have had a mirror as a head board, and also leaning on a wall right next to the bed, and ahem in the 1970’s on the ceiling.
    Mirrors and beds are sexy and glam, even if one is not ha ha.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Pre Fall Runway Selections

vera21

Thank goodness for holidays. It means I actually have the time to spend a few hours going through the Pre Fall 09 collections to prepare myself for the year ahead! A few of my favorite selections my dears… Vera Wang (above and below): I haven’t really been in love with Vera lately, but something about […]

    I love your little roundup! I almost forgot about the Pre-Fall 09 collections. I share your love with the new Zac Posen line. Wow! It’s like that great 30’s era. I especially love the collar on the middle outfit… And I’ve always been a fan of Rachel Roy and Doo.Ri as they have great ready to wear pieces… But don’t get be started on that Burberry purple coat. OH MAN! it kills me, it’s so cute…

Won’t You Join Me…

living+etc+mod+country+dining

For breakfast in this cozy room? Because there’s nothing better than winter sunshine streaming through the windows (and gorgeous windows at that!) to warm your spirits… I adore this little space with its contrast of new and vintage. Fresh flowers and fruits make it feel like spring, even in the coldest months, and the high […]

    Lovely lovely! Those chairs are fantabulous, and the sunlight streaming into this room makes me long for spring (or at least for yesterday’s tropical vacation!)

Sunshine…

cartersmithsunshine31

I realized today that I sufficiently depressed everyone with my last wintery post… so why don’t we all just pretend we’re on a tropical island instead…? The type of place where packing involves a bikini, a dress and some sunscreen… Where skin gets perfectly bronzed… And the term ‘bundling up’ means throwing on a light […]

    Oh yes please! Can I hide in your suitcase and come along? Of course in this magical tropical land, I would be the sort of girl who could get away with wearing vibrant yellow…and naturally I would tan instead of sunburn like I normally do. Just as long as we’re dreaming, after all!

    After the 3 feet of snow I just shoveled on my walkway I would adore to pull out the bikini and be sitting on the beach. Ahhh…

    Loving these photos–such a nice change of pace after Christmas! I just caught up with your last posts–if I lived up in your area I would surely support your dad’s restaurant–it sounds delicious! This is such a hard time for people, I hope he hangs in there along with all the smaller stores and people launching their dreams (like you)!

    Wishing you all thing wonderful for the New Year!
