Losing my Blog Virginity

Hello Big World… or just you two or three out there!  No matter, I’m ready to get this party started!  Just one question – How to begin my first blog entry?!?  Head first, I guess!

Although I have daily love affairs with almost every trend on the map, here are my top ten that I fall for every time.  It doesn’t matter what season, what the Pantone color of the year is, or heck, what decade it is, I will love these forever and ever.  Let’s see if any of your lifelong love’s are here…

1.  Hand-painted Wallpaper


At night after I pray that my boys are kept safe, I ask that I wake up with the gift to either sing like Celine Dion or paint like these De Gournay bastards.  So far, no luck.

2.  Red Anything, but especially, red walls.


This is truly one of my favorite rooms of all time.  The red trim on the drapes just kills me!  Maybe one day… when I don’t have so many wild boys running around the house!

3.  Mobiles


Maybe it’s the kid in me, but I just find them so fascinating.  Purely artistic, but what an impact!  Mobiles = Happiness!

4.  Animal Print Fabric


Yes, I’m absolutely one of those women who has worn every variation of this trend since birth.  I love it, I don’t care!  Look at this room (Diane Von Furstenburg’s) – It’s glamorous and powerful and sexy and yet, it’s livable.  Plus, it makes me feel badass!

5.  Blue and White China


Drool, drool, drool!!  Nuff said.

6.  The Hand Chair


This chair is just cool… maybe too cool for me, but I want one, I want one, I want one!  And yes, I would sit on it.  I would dole out discipline seated like a buddha on my hand chair – that’ll teach em irony.  (Or give them a “Grey Gardens” view of their mother!)

7.  Blue Lacquer

Although I do really like lacquer in general, I seem to love the peacock-blue color the best.  And when the ceiling is done too (or at least in a bright color) – Fab-u-lous!  Easy to clean, too, so I might just have to lacquer my entire house!

8.  Chinoiserie Style Mirrors


Everything in this room is TDF (To Die For), but the mirror is the star.  It’s just sooo beautiful that I, literally, want to pet it…maybe kiss it.  Don’t judge.

9.  Sea Urchin Inspired Lighting


The light is a little bit glitzy, a little bit dangerous, and 100% crazy awesome.  I wouldn’t want the job of hanging it, but I’ll definitely take the tough job of admiring it.

10.  Big, Bold Art



Without the art, this would be a very boring space.  But that orange is killer!  And the dog ain’t bad either!  (Do you think they matched the wall to the dog or vice versa?!)

So, those are my obsessions in a nut shell!  What do you think I left out??

I have some great ideas for posts coming up – stay tuned!
