Wood Top & White Metal Frame Outdoor Dining Table

Summer is just around the corner, and I have been busy shopping for outdoor furniture.  I am having a serious crush on all these outdoor dining tables with white metal frames and wood tops that are popping up everywhere lately.  Room and Board has this beautiful one from their Montego collection, but it is priced between $999 – $1,099.  If, like me, this baby would eat up most of your back yard furnishing budget, I do have three other fabulous and affordable options to choose from.

Brass and Gold Accents

Bring some bling to your space with brass or gold accents and hardware.  I think it is especially refreshing to see these tones for kitchen hardware, where nickel, chrome, and oil-rubbed bronze have been dominating the scene.  The warm tone of brass and gold gives that perfect final touch against gray and white cabinetry.  Brass or gold light fixtures can also add a slight layer of opulence to a rustic or minimalistic setting.

I was blog strolling to get some design inspirations and came across a nursery inspiration board from the talented Joy of oh joy!.  Like a moth to a flame, I was drawn to the colorful Themis mobile right away and I couldn’t help but start looking for more goodies with pixel patterns.  They put a smile on my face and I hope they brighten your day as well.

I am loving… Black + Gold

After seeing the new DVF fall 2011 collection, I am head over heels in love with black and gold.  I have picked 10 items with the same modern glamor feel.




No.1: These books are just simply too beautiful for words.

No.2: Perfect for my new short hairstyle.

No.3: One day this is going to be in my dream kitchen.

No.4: Because every girl needs a black and gold clutch.

No.5: Delicate candle holder – watch the flicker dances and sparkles against the gold background.

No.6: Cool shades, this could be my new favorite.

No.7: Black, gold and snake-skin print… need I say more.

No.8: This makes the morning coffee that much more special.

No.9: I am obsessed with animal prints.

No.10: For my bedroom.

I am loving… Black + Tan

Mad about AJ Floor Lamp

It would be nice if I have $900 to spare, I would get the AJ Floor Lamp designed by Arne Jacobsen for Louis Poulsen Lighting Inc.  It has a quiet simplicity, and it also comes in a variety of colors.
