Crate & Barrel has a great selection of things for the home currently, including these gorgeous chairs — have you noticed? I’m drooling over the mid century inspired white leather chair with that sleek chrome base because it would look great in my living room. I equally love the cobalt blue trimmed chair shown below, it’s traditional yet very modern with that amazing lacquered frame. Whoever designed that honey of a chair was clearly very clever, it’s such a hottie.

I’ve loved designer Amy Butler ever since I first discovered her work over five years ago – I’m a very loyal fan! Her midwest modern aesthetic is so fresh and feminine and so are her lovely prints and patterns along with their playful colorways. Look at her latest collections…
I heard from a former Blogging Your Way student of mine, Stephanie Ryan, today and her news blew me away! She is an artist from Pennsylvania who has a charming etsy shop where she sells many of her sweet nature-inspired paintings and prints but, get this, Lenox picked up her designs and now she has an entire range of dinnerware available at Macy’s! Here are a few photos from her new collection at Macy’s to whet your appetite…
It’s absolutely freezing here in the northeast. In fact it’s way below freezing. So in an attempt to make you feel warm, I offer up a round up of knitted throws. Just imagine snuggling up in one of these by a roaring fire. Don’t you feel warmer already?

I was reading Curbed this morning that designer/show host Nate Berkus has his Chicago home on the market for a fat $2.65M, the same place we drooled over back in a past issue of Elle Decor magazine. Remember his gorgeous 4,000-square-foot lakeside crib? If you’re a Nate fan, of course you do. Well all this can be yours… well perhaps not all — I can’t be sure, but I’d want the full monty, it would need to be furnished with Nate’s lovely things.
My friend is the new rep for Ferm Living in Germany so I’ve been waiting for her to share their latest catalog with me and it’s here! Jonathan Lo from Happy Mundane posted it first, so I can’t take credit, but here are some additional images that show their new collection for Spring/Summer 2011. I agree with Jonathan when it comes to some of their kids products when he said, “Move over kids, these are mine!” – for sure, Jonathan!
A new year is here and with that, a slew of new interiors books coming your way for 2011! I love books, there is nothing like cracking open a beautiful interiors book and lingering over text and images for ideas and inspiration in your favorite chair. I don’t mind reading text-only novels on a reading device, but if there are illustrations or photos, I want a hard copy – a “real” book, please! So with that, here are 8 must-have interiors books that will sit proudly on my coffee table this year. I can’t wait for each of them to release and below each beautiful cover, I’ll tell you why!
