This is my bathroom right now, about to be demolished. Here is what is coming out: the wallpaper, the green bath tile, the fake wood floor, the shutters, the curtain, the drop in shower and door, the vanity, and the faucets:

We all know what the right chandelier can do for a room, especially when it's a crystal one I think. This is the photo I took at the restoration Hardware store the other day. I love the way the girls are looking up in wonder at that magnificent light. It's exactly how I feel, too!
Here are some other favorites....

This is a really long post because I couldn't bear to cut any of the images. My favorite part is how the girls, age 12 and 13, reverted into little kids.... you'll see....

I forgot to tell you guys that I dyed my hair pink recently. Seriously. I love pink that much.
It's a temporary dye that washed out eventually, but I've been maintaining the heck out of it because I kind of love it. It's a fun change anyway.
So, in keeping with my being the girliest girl ever, I thought I'd do another all pink 50 Favorites. Here they are.... enjoy!

I think the designers at One Kings Lane are exceptionally talented. I so want to be one of the celebrities whose home they make over from top to bottom. I have no idea whether the recipients pay for the product, but I kind of assume they pay a reduced amount, don't you think? If it's free I don't want to know because I'll be so jealous.
Here are my top 25 favorites:

Here is a little about her, from her website:
Elise Morris is a working artist exploring nature’s point of view, particularly fleeting moments of growth and change. Finding beauty in the unexpected, she works from a deep desire to learn her natural surroundings. Elise begins each piece with a simple line drawing, and adds layers and layers of translucent paint. The resulting paintings and drawings explore concepts of nature, at the edge of abstraction.
Elise received a B.A. in painting and printmaking at U.C. Santa Cruz in 1997, and is the recipient of the Hyde and Benteen Irwin Scholarship for excellence and promise in the visual arts. She lived in the Dominican Republic as a Peace Corps Volunteer from1998 until 2000. In 2005, she received a Master of Fine Arts from the JFK University Arts & Consciousness program in Berkeley, CA. She has exhibited extensively, and has work in corporate and individual collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. Elise currently lives and works in Northern California.She uses all colors really but I am drawn to the vibrant pinks and blues. That being said, here are some of my favorites....

I am absolutely dying to visit the boutique hotel in London called The Artist's Residence! It is a different kind of post for me. I would have said that my first choice hotel would be the Ritz or Four Seasons, but I stumbled across this and was smitten. Casual, relaxed, historic, and over a pub. Sold!

Just a quick post today to show you all this spectacular project in Notting Hill. It is a townhouse by Blakes London. There isn't much additional information available, but you guys don't really come here for the commentary, anyway! Enjoy!!

I am so impressed with the use of purple throughout. I love purple when it is done right, but it can be really, really tricky. They paired it with grays and blues throughout, and I'm smitten. What do you think?
