10 things that make me happy...right now







as a designer i am constantly daydreaming about a client that would let me run free with their home. if that were to happen these are the things that i love at this moment in time....

ps. i have a two month old so it may take a couple of days to actually get all 10 of them out!



1. every house must have an awesome WALLPAPER in it....yes, ladies, wallpaper is back in a big way. and what better place to put it but in the powder room or foyer... its front and center where all of your guests will see it. and i promise you they will be envious. now i am not talking about running to the local Lowes and looking through the bins of palm tree and damask prints. (sorry those of you that live in SC and think that we must display our beloved palm tree everywhere.) i am talking about a "wallpaper" that makes a statement the second you walk into a house for a dinner party or step into the powder room to reapply your lip gloss. generally, these are small spaces so take the time and visit your interior designer (if she is nice like me, it won't break your bank) and get the hippest one...

okay, i love it. i don't know you but i think i think i've met my match. everything on this blog is so fabulous. i splurged and got this kwid green trellis fabric for my "over the kitchen sink roman shade"- and almost licked the page from the magazine you've posted here. it makes me sooooo happy. we have a lot in common, except i'm not a mother (yet). i've just started a blog too: urbangraceinteriors.typepad.com check it out. the website is being revamped... so don't be disappointed by the portfolio :) urbangraceinteriors.com . i look forward to being your blog friend. i'm on the coast of northwest florida. a stone's throw from seaside. www.seasidefl.com - you may be familiar? thanks for inspiring me! ps- i worked for victoria hagan... and am also a huge fan! :)

Shannon-
Girl, I thought you disappeared! I'm thrilled to see you put up Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis paper (and fabric on an earlier post). Nothing beats it. I had no idea that you had a baby. Let's try to get together. Shoot me an email at kperry@fsco.com and we can schedule a meeting. Hope all is well. I love the site (and by the way - tmz and perez are my guilty pleasures, too. I check them daily).

I love this blog :) I just came across your page after googling "wallpaper, the sitting room, mt pleasant sc". I just found the most perfect wallpaper at The Sitting Room here in Mt P and I'm sooo incredibly excited! They have a lovely style and the service is as great as you said. I had difficulty finding a local place that actually carried the style of wallpaper that I've been dreaming of. Love the store, Love your blog. I'm so glad that I've found you! Now when I need help with something I'll come here first.
