I absolutely love the richness and tradition behind embroidered Suzani textiles. The colorful, needlepointed fabric dates as far back as the late 18th century and was often exchanged like currency or used as dowry payments in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. In case you’re in the market for authentic Suzani, eBay has a huge selection with great prices. You can thank me later!
Even the smallest bit of outdoor space can be one of the most covetable features of any Manhattan apartment. So how about over 1,600 square feet of lush, private outdoor space!? Well, that’s just preposterous . . . and the bee’s knees. This penthouse loft in Chelsea features one of the most spectacular rooftop terraces I’ve ever seen. And for a mere $4.5 million dollars, it could be ours.
I’m currently on a serious mission to find a large, traditional Beni Ourain rug for our living room. These incredibly plush rugs, made by the Beni Ourain tribe and other neighboring tribes in the mountains of Morocco, typically feature a black diamond pattern and are woven into a cream foreground. An authentic piece can be quite costly but alas, my search carries on and my collection of inspiration photos continues to grow . . .
Would you have ever guessed that this Flinstones inspired house belonged to television legend Dick Clark? The bright and cavernous house sits on over 22 acres in Malibu, CA and is currently up for sale at $3.5 million dollars. What a rare opportunity to own such a unique and unusual property!
Mixing bold, vintage-inspired floral prints should not be limited to one’s wardrobe. Floral printed furniture and walls can easily transform a room into a light, cheery, and lively oasis. Are you inspired enough to add a bit of bloom to your pad?
