  10. Fabulous finds as always and great inspiration. Love the dog in the Eames! Really love those rococco consoles - they could be really fabulous in the right space!!

  11. Great job, Danielle! I lovelovelove sharing this CL vice, although I do feel a bit envious. The Pacific Northwest sensibilities (I'm a Portland, OR C-lister) do not subscribe to the same depths-of-gorgeousness in design as other geographical locales. Probably has to do with lower population densities and less established historical occupation, plus the environmental vistas are so breathtaking that interior spaces seem wont to compete. The PNW "style" relies heavily on the organic, but there's just so much pine and "cabin style" I can take. LOVE living here, but I miss my east coast bling and edge. I've got to scour pretty hard and consistently to "win." Thanks for allowing me this vicarious joy, and double thanks for the inspirational comparisons. Yaay!!

  12. Great finds as always! I am so excited you are going to visit the CL in Myrtle beach (it is South Carolina...not Virginia).
    Have a great week-end! - Patty
