It’s always amazing to me how a great wallpaper can really transform a space. As an interior designer, I’m always on the hunt for great modern patterns to use on projects, and these are all ones that have caught my eye at one time or another…the best part is that black and white goes with everything!
PS. If you ever have extra wallpaper, its great for lining drawers, the inside of cabinets, or wrapping gifts!

Gift wrap has gotten so good lately, it kinda makes we want to wrap everything that comes in a box! I’ve always thought a beautifully wrapped gift makes the gift even more special! Here are some of my favorites that are great year round.

I’m sure many of you are aware of the ceramic moment happening right now (and if you weren’t, check out this article in New York Magazine). Anyway, in the handmade section over at NY Now this weekend, I got to catch a peek of Workaday Handmade‘s gorgeous ceramics that thus far I’ve only been able to admire via social media. Artist Forrest Lewinger had a bunch of new pieces, like the double vases and clocks above, that I’ll definitely be adding to my Valentine’s wish list.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, chocolate seems to be the gift of choice for lovers, and why not? It’s freakin’ delicious! But if you’re going to have chocolate as your token of love, make sure its not only tasty, but gorgeous too. These are just a few that have taken their design to the next level, and I’ll take one of each, thankyouverymuch!

There’s nothing like a business card holder that reflects your personality to make a good first impression!

A few weeks ago I rewatched The Grand Budapest Hotel and quickly became obsessed with searching for an authentic Mendl’s box to buy online. Obviously, I wasn’t about to pay $150 for the real deal, but I DID come across the sweetest Wes Anderson themed handkerchiefs by Flo Corretti. She has ones with designs from Moonrise Kingdom, The Life Aquatic and of course The Grand Budapest Hotel, in addition to other designs, and they’re all certainly too nice to be sneezing into! Check out her Etsy shop for all these and more!

I seriously wouldn’t mind going back to the olden days if it meant I could write with one of these stunning feather pens.

For some reason, drinking water is the hardest thing for me to do. My husband can go through bottles and bottles of water a day, but I can literally have maybe a glass and be done. Water is such an essential that I’m probably missing out on better skin and healthier insides, so for 2015 I’m resolving to drink more!
