I'm sick...yup. I promise not to give it to you over the computer. I either got it shopping or from the many people around me that are also sick. But, don't tell my mom, okay! Even though I'm an adult, I still fear telling my mother when I'm sick...first she'll say: "I can't believe you're sick, I thought I told you to keep your hands clean and use that hand sanitizer I gave you..."
That I can handle, but then she starts in about what I need to do about it, which includes her famous cold remedy..."why don't you gargle with hot salt water...you know that will do the trick." Will it mom?!? It's sweet, but I think me being sick stresses her out, when it should be stressing me out. But, I'll let on like I've done the whole salt water thing...have you ever tried that, it's the worst! Well, I hope to be up and running (more like shuffling) maybe by tomorrow or Sat.... Do me a favor, don't get sick! Stay in, do some online shopping and avoid people, okay!

If you open up this month's issue of California Home + Design you will be whisked away to the Traina home off Mulholland Drive, designed by Marjorie Skouras, whom you may know from her lovely coral lighting collection. A home with several personalities all working cohesively under one roof...so full of life and color.

Yes, it's true...but hurry. You can still get those perfect Holiday cards and send them off on time. While browsing Instyle.com I came across several great options, a few I thought I would share with you below...
"Partridge in a Pear Tree" cards available at foxyandwinston.com.

I think I can officially say that yellow is my "most" favorite color...Okay, I know just about every time I talk about "a" color, I say that it's my favorite. But, this time I mean it! It's just so dang happy! Lately I find myself subconsciously gravitating towards this color... taking over my life...but in a good way.
Still one of my favorite prints...Sunspot Circles and Squares Fabric by Florence Broadhurst. The perfect print to brighten any room available through Woodson and Rummerfield's!
And just because it's winter, doesn't mean "yellow" has to hibernate till spring. I will have this J.Crew coat featured on Laura Loves blog and I will wear it with a big smile on my face like this lady!
Um, I may have to put these on my "wish list" for Christmas...and in case you didn't hear, I'm registered at Bloomingdale's and my ship to address is...but, really Kate Spade's Rutherford Circle tableware in Yellow is to die for!
Kelly Hoppen you are genius! The way you wrapped this vintage chair in head to toe yellow velvet fabric...drives me crazy!!!
Hope you enjoyed my yellow rant :)
Nope, too early for the Domino contest winner...but apparently O at Home magazine held a decorating contest for it's readers...and the results are in. Three winner's are featured, but one of them, Kirsten Hollister had some pretty cute ideas for her home...so cute, I couldn't help but think...why hadn't I thought of that?
There's much more to this home and other winner's homes as well, in the most recent issue of O at Home...but really, that cute 'lil mirror/chalkboard thing sold me!
I've been telling people about the great, "affordable" headboards available at Urban Outfitters of all places, and I just thought I'd share with you about their "free shipping", in case you didn't know...if you were thinking out getting any furniture from U.O., now's the time!

You squeeze them for stress relief...and then try to save the juice, in order to make spiked lemonade to put in your coffee mug at work (no one will notice). Well, not exactly, but you get the gist. This remodeling thing can really take it's toll...I'm about ready to become a renter again.
So this week we made some great discoveries that I thought I'd share with you in my "remodeling is the pits" segment...
That good idea we had to keep the ugly brown carpet in, to protect the hardwood from our painting...turns out the previous owners didn't care as much as we did!
This is our most recent form of communication...we graffiti our own walls :) Well, not exactly...just the fireplace, which turns out is all brick in case you wondered...thanks hun!
And then cause I've lost the will to care, I almost walked out of the house like this...But, I still think I could have worked it!

I came across a fantastic company the other day, Valtekz...a product that looks and feels like the real deal. It's not often, in my industry that you fall in love with a fake, but what a great fake this is!
With a catalogue that boasts many great ideas and installation shots...like backing bookcases, or a furniture inlay like above...
And not to mention broad collection of colors and embossed textures...oh, and unlike hides...these fabrics are 54" wide goods! Okay, I hope I don't sound like their spokesperson, I'm just really excited :)
And maybe you'd like some luggage in their signature print for your long getaway...I wish!

I'm not one for rustic log cabin like furniture (unless it's the "rare" perfect setting for such), but there is something to be said for a live-edge wood piece juxtaposed against it's opposite in materials, such as the bright white linens above or bold geometric wallpaper like below.
Probably my favorite of the images (live edge combined with David Hicks "Hexagon" wallpaper is a recipe for success), the home of Edward Durell Stone featured in House and Garden magazine, Feb. '06.
The country home of Roland Augustine and family featured in Elle Decor, March '06. This walnut and steel console is by Chris Lehrecke.
A rather large walnut table, made by Mike Fair, featured in O at Home Magazine, Spring '07
A nice touch to against all the stainless steel, this rough edged ash wood shelf is featured in a home designed by Hanrahan Meyers Architects and showcased in Met. Home magazine, June '06.

So what do you think of this trend? I can think of a few other things that I'd rather spend my money on...like our kitchen remodel which I'm dreading...sending my dog off to be trained by Ceasar Milan...a Hermes blanket...the list goes on...
