Forty eight hours in New York was all I needed to get over last week’s slump. I drained my iPhone battery in record time trying to capture every last inspiring detail.
At ABC Carpet & Home I fell in love with a batik chaise and felt my heart beat a little bit faster in the John Robshaw and Madeline Weinrib collections. From there, it was John Derian’s quirky decoupage and recently released furniture line that caught my eye.
An oversize Slim Aarons photo stopped me in my tracks at Mecox Gardens and I finally was able to admire Tulu Textiles in person (among a thousand other lines I love) at Studio Four.
The icing on the cake though, was definitely a stop at Creel and Gow. A veritable cabinet of curiosities and home to the fantastic zebra you see above.
Until next time, New York.

How do you prefer your silver spots, on your pillows or on your toes? John Robshaw’s mirrored pillows have been around for awhile (Olivia Palermo has them in her apartment) but had fallen off my radar until I spied these DVF studded pumps on Shopbop.
Of course as soon as I saw the shoes my obsession with the pillows returned and now they’re right back on my wish list (along with the shoes!) I’m curious, which are you more likely to spend on: your home or your closet? For the past few years I think my home has been winning out. Time to start re-investing in the wardrobe!
P.S if you love the pillows but can’t justify the price tag, check out this pair on etsy. Dead ringers and for a fraction of the price!
In an ideal world my home would be filled with John Robshaw linens. The Indian block printed textiles are colorful and classic with just the right amount of bohemian flair. I’m particularly drawn to the blue colorways which remind me of my collection of blue and white ginger jars. If only I had made their sample sale last week in NYC!
I always look forward to reading the holiday gift guides in my favorite glossies (and now online mags and blogs too!) so I’ve decided to get in on the fun! This week, I’ll be sharing a selection of gifts I’d be happy to give and receive. First up, a collection of seriously stylish accessories for the home…
