Bling, Bling

When it comes to jewels, it doesn't get much better then restyled vintage. {well I guess I'd take a new Cartier Tank Watch, but who asked? right}  I stumbled upon Jenny Schretter's, SBella jewelry line via Starfish and Sundresses yesterday and I was hooked. The designer is from Boston? who knew? clearly not me. Jenny uses vintage gems, crystal, chains and rhinestones to create one of kind beauties..and with names like Daisy, Edith, Sylvia and Thelma you really can't go wrong.

Proportion plays a huge part in my work, great design is all about balancing the elements. Over scaled artwork is the perfect way to add interest and drama to your home. My client art install went great last week, the large scaled painting by artist Elise Morris perfectly finished off the room! It's almost photo-ready!

By the fashion house Marchesa and their intricately designed evening wear.  Designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were ultimately influenced by fashion muse Marchesa Casati. {1881-1957}. Marchesa Casati desired to be a "living work of art." The vintage inspired and highly detailed creations are elegant but edgy; pictured are designs from their Fall, Resort and Spring Collections. I especially adore their gorgeous handbags. As most of you know, I've slowly been designing and sharing my home with you. I love to use my house as a design laboratory of sorts. I'm currently focusing on completing my dining room and after seeing this crystal purse pictured above I am now completely convinced I need to add a bit more drama to the room with a crystal chandelier.. It may be modern or vintage, I'm not sure, what I do know is it needs to glamorous! I love to entertain, so i want to create a space that feels special but relaxed. It is going to be a mix of casual and refined elements. I can't wait to finish and share it...

Some crystal beauties...

I would even be open to a vintage murano look...not sure my wallet is ready for that though. We'll see what I find! I love the thrill of the hunt. I know most of you do too

Down "with it"

Whether your down with Kelly's style or not {I personally think she's one step ahead of everyone, her avant garde way of thinking can be bit contagious} I think her rug selections {older and newer} are always PERFECT! Seriously, I can't find one I don't like..............
