Anthropologie Lucite Lust

Is it just me or does that title seem like a mouth full?  I have been lusting over all of Anthropologie's Oscarine's lucite line recently.  I'm a sucker for gold, but combine that with a lucite deco feeling piece of furniture and I'm sold.  Brad and I are in the market for a new bed and believe it or not my very much anti gold husband ("gold is for old people") actually really likes this bed.  I couldn't believe it!  I think I'm slowing teaching him that gold isn't just for grandmas, but used sparingly and mixed with other metals can be youthful.  

This  bed  would POP off a black or crisp white wall.

This would be so pretty in a guest room or a girls room.  Imagine a big pastel floral wallpaper behind this  headboard .  You would notice it, yet it would also disappear into the floral wall.

I'm also looking at this  bed  by Bernhardt which has an upholstered headboard as opposed to the Anthropologie one.  This stunning bed just won the Pinnacle Award for best bedroom design for 2016 at High Point market.  I can see why too!

Could you handle a lucite bed in your bedroom?  Or even more daring?  Lucite and GOLD?  Trust me, if my husband can handle it, you can too!

Denim

I feel like it's inevitable when you have boys that you look for durability.  Whether that be in their clothes or even the furnishings in their home.  Boys are just so tough on everything.  Brad, I'm including you in the "boys" factor.  In actuality you might be tougher on my furniture than the little boys!!  Let's just say my Mother gets nervous when he's in her home.  I can hear her now, "now Brad, don't lean on the walls.  Brad!!!!"  

So with durability on the brain, it lead me to denim for the home.  You know how durable your jeans are so just imagine a sofa.  Just like an old pair of jeans that you've worn to perfection, whether that's the finish, or perfectly sized and placed holes, they only get better with time.  As is the case with a piece of furniture upholstered in denim.

MORE DENIM FOR THE HOME!!

If you're concerned about taking such a big leap into upholstering a sofa, think about using the fabric on a smaller scale.  You still get the durability and easy to care for fabric, without maybe going so far out of your comfort zone.  

I'm kinda dying over  these  denim slipcovered barstools with a stencil pattern over them.  So unique and one of a kind

Pleats

So I'm having a love affair with small pleats currently.  It's like my eye is immediately drawn to them when I've been shopping lately.  What's crazy is I have a black skirt with small pleats and I haven't worn it in years.  So I'm putting it out there, this week I'm wearing my fancy black pleated skirt.  I think to pull it off in a daytime, Mom setting, I'll pair it with a classic white t shirt, hip tennis shoes and a statement necklace.  What I love most about pleats is how feminine they are, yet done in a certain manor can be sexy at the same time.  And if you know me, every now and then I'll try and up the sex appeal in an understated manner. 

So sit back because I have a LOT of fashion and design coming your way.

DESIGN

Pleats are no different in interior design than fashion.  They come in all sizes and can be used in many places in your home.  

Isn't this whole room perfection?  If you want the BEST grasscloth you go to  Phillip Jeffries .  Pea green and purple is always such a great color combo.  And it's great for men and women alike
