Moroccan Lighting

I just saw the movie Casablanca for the first time. I know...can't believe I waited this long to see it either. It's such a great story in the most a spectacular location ever-Morocco. I was so inspired by the images and lighting used on set,  that I started researching modern Moroccan light fixtures for your home.

Movie stills from Casablanca......the arched doorways and massive hanging lights speak for themselves.

Boho Style

Bohemian interiors flourish once more, and less is never more for the bohemian decorator. The major players in designing a boho room are color, textiles, beads,walls dense with art, major mirrors and furnishings that are covered in graphics and soft layers. The dictionary defines "bohemian" as an artist or writer, or anyone who sets social conventions aside.  Bohemian style means going your own way.  It's self-expression and creative energy; it's caring less about what other people think and more about what you really feel.  It is something made from nothing.  Enjoy!

 I decided that this is my new apartment. Julliane Moore's West Village townhouse, which is currently on the market for $12.5 million is for sale. I thought, why not? I just need to save $12.499 dollars and its all mine.  Dad always said, if you want it, you just gotta work hard. Don't worry, sister, I will share it with just need to work harder than me to pay for it.  xoxo.

Inspiring Bookends

I was fortunate enough to come from a family where we are all equally obsessed with books and reading. My mom was an English teacher and my dad read everything and anything that he could get his hands on.  I have always enjoyed the way newspaper ink smells, the crisp white pages of a newly printed book, and even the glossiness of school textbooks.  If you are a book collector, then you must check out these amazing bookends that keep your reads vertical and double as gorgeous pieces of art.
