restoration hardware

for those of you who have never heard of the company restoration hardware, you must look them up! it is a furniture company that specializes in impeccable quality and classic designs.... in other words, amazing furniture that i really, really want. too bad the price tag is WAY out of my budget. although it is on the pricey end, some items i found were quite affordable, especially for the quality of the pieces. so if you are in the market of looking for a special piece that you can keep for years to come, or just browsing for inspiration (like me) then take a look at restoration hardware's fall 2011 collection.

cozy corners

small areas or corners in a house can be a tricky spot to decorate. an easy fix to a tight space is to make a small sitting area with a gorgeous chair and maybe a small side table or plant. add some flare with a small rug, painting, pillows or an interesting lamp (or all of the above!)

up, up and away

this morning i was reading the new york times and spotted the most adorable sherbet colored house out of the corner of my eye. i picked up the arts section and right when i got a better look i knew exactly what it was... the "Up" house! if you haven't seen the adorable Disney/Pixar movie, it's a must. it practically brought me to tears within the first ten minutes! but the most memorable part of this film is the cute little house that the main character, Carl, lives in and decides to take on a magical journey.

someone else seemed to be even more taken with the movie than i and decided to actually build a real-life version of the house, down to almost the exact interiors with custom made furniture and 50's styled robin egg blue colored appliances. the home was built in herrimen, utah and is on the market for about $400,000 dollars. in the meantime, the house is open for tours for $10 a person with proceeds going to charity.
