We just finished uploading the new pillows from Ryan Studio and we just love them.  This is our favorite line of pillow to sell.   It has such an elegance about it-- simple, clean-lined and well-designed.

Here are some of our favorites:

These pillows range between $125-200 per pillow. They are filled with down. You can find them in our decorative pillows section.

French Decor from Aidan Gray

Pin It

We have to confess--we're not flea-market or garage-sale or Craigslist- kinda people.  To us, one's man trash is just that--trash!  We think it's much easier just to buy new stuff.  You know exactly what you get.  

If you are like us, and if you like that Parisian, French-chic look without having to fly to Paris for the flea market and ship this stuff back home by yourself, you might want to check out Aidan Gray.  They make very French home decor and accessories.

Here are some samples:

Aidan Gray has a great interactive catalog that you can browse through.  You can also buy directly online.

The New York Magazine has a great article on 50 ways to make yourself happy.  And we're not talking about taking an expensive vacation, getting stoned- or drunken stupid...anything like that.  We're talking utterly simple things you can do to feel good.

Designer Profile-Garry Hutton

Pin It

San Francisco Chronicle has a profile today on Gary Hutton, a Bay Area designer.  Even though we never heard of him, his portfolio just blows us away.  The man is a genius! 

Seriously.  Take, for example, his design of a bookcase.

Now, doesn't that look like an idea worth stealing?

You can get this barstool here.

The dining chairs are available on our site.  It's slightly different but the looks are similiar.

If you visit his web site, you'll see some really creative ideas as well.  For the full article from the SF Chronicle, click here.

A Dreamy Bedroom of Soft Colors

Pin It

We were working on a new bedroom project today for a client and we thought we'd share some of the items we are considering with you.   We wanted to do something soft and pretty, with colors and textures that look warm and inviting...

What do you think? 

This bed is a custom-upholstered bed.  It shows here in a cream fabric but you can  have it upholstered with your own fabric.  It runs about $2800-3200 for a queen/king.  We like the fact that it doesn't require a boxspring.

We like this armoire for the TV or to store clothing.  It's so chic in person....

We just love this rug from Candice Olson.  We recently put this on sale.

And to add some colors, we love, love this flower arrangement.  It looks so incredibly real in person.

For bedding, this looks like it would be a great fit...
P.S. All of these items can be found at our home decor store.
