Love it! - Chippendale dinnerware

This table top collection from Ralph Lauren Home is to die for! Red bamboo Chippendale patterns are graphic, bold and oh so chic. A great way to introduce pattern to your dinnerware without getting too busy.

Style Story - Equestrian braids

An equestrian inspired braid goes a long way with me! A classic pattern - it evokes a stately air with a wonderfully rich texture.

Love it! - Bone mirror

I recently purchased a rectangular bone inlay mirror from Pottery Barn with the same coloring as this one from Ballard Designs. The ivory and tan color variations are very soothing to the eye and blend with any color decor. Plus this beautiful shape, a great balance of curves and angles, is sure to be a focal point anywhere you place it!

Style Story - Glossy traditional

It's funny how you'll see something and just know it's a find that you have to share! I love design that takes traditional elements and puts a contemporary spin on it - as is the case with these chic pieces. Traditional silhouettes, a classic urn and spindle chess piece - add a high gloss finish and you have the perfect balance of old, seen with a fresh perspective.

Love it! - Brass planter

If you've been a regular of DOD, you'll know I love anything with a lattice pattern or weave and this planter is no exception! With Spring and potting season on the horizon, this a classic and high-end way to dress up an inside potted plant that might adorn your console table, coffee table or dresser top.

Love it! - Horn side table

I'm often asked how to make a simple room punch without using crazy colors - well this gorgeous horn side table would help loads! It's not always about making your room as colorful as possible, but if you have a neutral beige-ish room, beige sofa, wood floors, earth-tone paint colors - the best thing to do is add decorative elements from nature such as this side table. The dynamic shape and unique material will draw your eye and deliver a pop of design interest - all while maintaining a neutral color palette!

Love it! - Studio desk

As I look at my desk with wires and devices thrown about, I am more than excited to write a posting about this studio desk that has a hidden compartment to house the unsightly! From phones and ipods to digital cameras, chargers and power strips, it seems our list of devices necessary in navigating the world is only multiplying - I see this desk as the future of desks!

Love it! - Upholstered headboard

So I'm thinking of buying a new headboard an I love this tufted option with nail heads from Ethan Allen. They allow you to custom it in a variety of their fabrics and grades - I personally die for the rusty brown velvet (pic below)It's classic, traditional but not overly, has just enough design detail and looks to be a comfy lean!
