Eye Candy From Darryl Carter and Jamie Drake

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

I talk a lot about my "dream homes" but honestly, sometimes I don't even know what my dream home is until I see it. That was the case of this Darryl Carter home (as seen in AD here) -  Like my mother used to say when my dad asked her what she needed at the mall, "I'll know it when I see it."  That's how I feel about this house - it's my surprise dream house:

Purple is by no means my "go-to" color, although I have used it and been quite pleased with the results. I've never been bold enough to use it the way Jamie Drake doe sin this stunner, though.  The use of color in this house is unexpected and beautiful, in my opinion. Do you agree?

In another bold move, the shower is encased in brass. WHAT!? I never thought in a million years I would ever like that again, but for some reason, it works here.  
Too bad it doesn't quite work this well in my master bath.

I have two posts for you today, so please scroll down to the one after this if you are interested in the second one, about my dream homes and continued delusions of grandeur! :)

Anyone who reads this blog know what a fan I am of One King's Lane.  I am not just an affiliate, but I am (I suspect) one of their biggest customers.  I spent more there for myself and clients last month than at any other source (!)  But that's a very good thing, as their prices rival those of Home Goods,
and the selection is stellar.

I'm writing this today to try to convince those few of you who haven't signed up yet (here) to do so - I promise you will NOT regret it.

Ok, here's what I got at OKL for my own home just in the last few weeks:

This vase:

These bowls:

These urns:

This box:

This painting:

This other box:

This sculpture:

These linens:

This rug (LOVE LOVE LOVE - my favorite, but it's not ready to show you in the room yet)

And for my own home a little while ago:

These garden stools:

This bowl:

These 4 Lexingotn tables (WHAT a deal!)

 This Rug:

And this mirror:

Oh, and a set of 1500 TC Hotel linens that I'm just not gonna show you because my bed is a mess :)

If I ever stop working with clients, I want to go work here. 
How much FUN must it be to curate these sales, coming up with 10 or so new ones every day?  A dream for someone like me who LOVES to shop!

My FAVORITE thing at OKL is the (under-advertised) "Downstairs" Clearance every week. T
he deals are incredible.

So have I convinced you to sign up
It takes 2 seconds. 
Then OKL sends you an email every day with the new sales. 
I LOVE getting my 11:00 emails, and I hope you do too!!

Thanks for reading and signing up for One King's Lane!!!
