State Side Tables

Thinking of my East Coast and NYC friends and family tonight.  Stay dry and safe.

On the note of my favorite states, check out these new state tables from Uncommon Goods.  Great side tables for a modern boys' room if they have a sentimental value to you. (Available in 8 colors, $200 ea)

Artist David Ryden

I apologize for being MIA for a week or so but I was in Texas for my sister's baby shower:


and in Charleston for a crazy wedding:


which we turned into a family vacation on Sullivan's Island celebrating Patton's first birthday:



While walking around Charleston I stopped into a few of my favorite stores Sugar Snap Pea, SOMA and Michael Mitchell.  Michael Mitchell is an art gallery which always seems to have affordable and emerging artists.  When I walked in I immediately fell in love with this Elephant by David Ryden.


Sized at 24" x 18" it is the perfect size for a child's room. The $1100 price tag is a little steep but once you consider it a true piece of artwork and investment piece which your little one will have forever it is a little easier to stomach.



The polar bear below (in the middle) was another favorite and had such wonderful soft colors.  I could definitely use that one in Patton's room.

Farewell Charleston! Until next time!

Newport Cottages has just debuted their new Hollywood Regency inspired nursery collection the Beverly.  Here is a sneak peek!


What do you think?  I think Patton needs a new dresser when she gets her big girl room in 1.5 years!

Kids Rooms in Adore Magazine


The Australian version of Lonny Magazine, Adore, just released their newest issue this week.  Since they are coming up on Summer the issue is full of inspiring bright and energetic interiors. 

This month they actually featured some children's rooms designed by the talented Maria Barros:



It seemed like the fabric house of Quadrille was all over this issue.  Both rooms featured elegant wallpaper - China Seas Aga Reverse in the girl's room and Allan Campbell Zig Zag in the boy's room.  

Kristy Lee Interiors uses some on Quadrille Paradise Background on some headboards in her shop:


And the pretty bedroom below designed by LA designer Emily Ruddo also uses some Allan Campbell Montecito on the pillows.


Diane Bergeron uses it again above on the roman shades and headboard. Then designer Emily Ruddo uses one of my favorites Allan Campbell Montecito below on some decorative pillows.



If you have some time, definitely check out the issue this week!
