Love it! - Greek key pillow

This 20"x20" pillow screams glamour. Shiny gold embroidery in a Greek key pattern might make the rest of your room look boring in comparison - and at only $50 each, buying a pair won't break the bank!

Love it! - Fu Dogs

If you're superstitious like me, or just love Asian motifs, then these Fu Dogs are sure to satisfy. Use as book ends or literally placed in front of your door - Fu Dogs are protectors against evil spirits entering your home. I have a pair myself made of wood, but for a modern burst of color try these vibrant versions sold at CB2.

Love it! - Dining table under $200!

Can you believe this dining table is less than $200! Well you're not dreaming - on sale at www.CB2.com, its wood top and iron base says classic yet stylish. The large scale also makes for a power desk and its X-base adds architectural interest.

But for now, anyone in the NY, NJ or CT area can order from an extensive selection of baked goods delivered right to your door. Any occasion or theme, Tawny has you covered. And if cupcakes aren't your thing, her Banana Pudding is TO-DIE-FOR!

Love it! - Ralph Lauren picture frames

When I think of Ralph Lauren Home, words like classic, chic and high-end come to mind. With these picture frames, they certainly don't disappoint. Pulling from historical references and detailing, but updating them so they're just on the cusp of contemporary - no wonder the man is still relevant after all these decades!

Love it! - Sconce

For old Hollywood glamour, flank your bed or sofa with two of these brass plug-in sconces. Featuring stylish Greek-key detailing and a reflective finish, they'll be the "Belle of the wall!"

Love it! - Iron bed

A classic iron bed with a twist - nautical and equestrian rolled into one. I love the rings, arched head and foot board - it's minimal, timeless, yet has just enough design detailing to keep it interesting!

Love it! - Initial mugs

For all the territorial types, these beautifully initialed porcelain mugs will be yours alone. And what's even better, you can't go wrong gifting them to others. They'll be touched you bought a present made just for them!

Love it! - Classic rugs

How chic are these classic patterns - Greek Key and Hounds Tooth? Any floor would be lucky to be covered with such plush rugs. And better than the patterns is that they're both on sale at Williams Sonoma Home!

Style Story - Mirrored furniture

Opulent, a little narcissistic, but a statement they do make. I used to have mixed feelings about mirrored furniture, but like my theory with anything eye catching, a little goes a long way. One or two of these pieces could add a little sparkle to an otherwise flat room. Just don't go crazy or you might feel like you're in a circus fun house! Definitely furniture to admire, be sure not to let anyone catch you gazing too long, they might get the wrong idea! BTW - how exquisite is the folding screen?!

Love it! - Bamboo flatware

One of the few good things about the end of Summer, are the "End of Summer Sales!" Now is the time to stock up on the goodies you've been eyeing all season. This faux-bamboo flatware set by Carolyne Roehm isn't the highest of quality, but make for a fun summer party. Though probably not practical for everyday use, their vibrant yellow handles and sale price makes buying them all the easier!

Style Story - Tonic Home tables

Love it! - Topiaries

I thought these miniature topiaries were so adorable I had to have a set for my next dinner party. And if your dinner parties are far and few in between, just use them to adorn your desk or bedside table for a touch of greenery that won't wilt a week later!

Love it! - Knot mirror

Okay, so I couldn't help myself, call it a sickness, or just my only vice - shopping! I saw this mirror and after staring at it for a few minutes trying to figure out how it's constructed to look like a knot, I said to myself, "who cares, it's stunning!" And so it went, I had to have it :)

Love it! - Chinoiserie shelves

So I just purchased two of the 2' long shelves in white to display art and various accessories. The only thing better than the metal bamboo brackets is that they're also on clearance starting at $24.99 each, so act fast!

Love it! - Thick cable throw

As Summer becomes a distant memory and I feel the first chill in the air, reminding me that Fall is on its way, I've already had to take out a second blanket for my bed. So you can imagine how I went crazy for these thick cable knit throws from Pottery Barn. Don't you just want to curl up in them and watch a dvd or read your favorite design magazine?
