See + Hear + Heart
Nearly everyday I encounter exquisitely designed items of furniture, fashion, floral arrangements, tabletop accessories and more. These discoveries inspired me to start Friday Finds. I feature items I love to share with you. If you are interested, then let’s talk about bringing any of these items to your space when applicable.
To kick off my series, direct your attention to these sophisticated chandeliers and pendants fabricated out of felt from Antwerp. Two charming and stylish European men chatted me up on a recent travel excursions to a furniture, tabletop and gift market. Their store is dedicated to sustainability and houses upcycled and vintage items of furniture and home accessories. Their mission to keep beautifully designed objects out of the landfills and to find them new homes.
Cheers to that!
Life without art is unimaginable. I have such gratitude for the efforts of those who design, build and curate public art. It’s impact on our minds, bodies and souls is priceless.
Welcome to Walls Wednesday; my weekly series dedicated to art hung everywhere!
Tabletop Tuesday is all about geo cosmo ~ a cosmopolitan setting stacked on top of modern, geometric plate patterns. This black and white color scheme creates a high-impact visual effect because they are the complete opposite on the greyscale spectrum.
The plates feature a mix of the same shapes repeated in different formations and sizes. I love the cityscape of the top plate. The apple is a metaphor and the black glasses command to be filled with fine liquid libations.
Your tablesettings, along with your food, can transport you to other places, times and sceneries. It’s like a good book; a timeless journey to other dimensions.

Modern Monday invites you to bed B&B Italia style.
The iconic Italian brand designs elegant furniture with streamlined finesse. This bedroom features a glossy white bed with curved lines. The side table is a portable egg-shaped stand with a sleek silhouette. The white area rug has an abstract pattern in black that plays off of the linen.
The design takeaway is that in an all white space, you can layer style using one color by adding different textures and finishes to the items in which that color appears. You can choose one contrasting color and repeat that for a high-impact space.
