Lindsey Adelman

I am a huge fan of Lindsey Adelman's lighting. She is an industrial designer that makes custom made, hand-blown chandeliers that look more like sculptures than light fixtures. They have a way of completely transforming a space:

Little Nest

One of my favorite periods in design is Mid-Century Modern. The iconic pieces designed during that time not only still feel current but also go well with both traditional or modern interiors. I especially love using Mid-Century chairs in kids rooms. That is why I adore these tot sized reproductions from Little Nest:

Anh Duong

I am looking forward to viewing Anh Duong's show of self-portaits at the Sonnabend Gallery. "Duong uses images of herself in varying poses - both clothed and unclothed - as staging grounds for an emotionally charged internal discourse on relationships and the power of playing dress up."  
The show is on November 3 - December 22. The gallery is located at 536 West 22nd Street, NYC.

(All these times I did not tell you that I love you)

After we fought I dreamed I made out with Brad Pitt

Tiffany Private Event

For those of you that are Boston locals I wanted to extend an invitation I just received to a private event at the brand new Tiffany & Co. store on November 13 from 10am-12pm. The store, which is now located at The Chestnut Hill Mall, has a new sophisticated look.

Aerin's Aspen

I love how modern yet inviting Aerin Lauder's Aspen home feels. Taking cues from the snow covered birch trees, the cream and brown color scheme helps to draw the outdoors in.
