eclectic new furniture love

i catalog alot of new to me furniture finds. and at times i save a special place in my files for designers who push the boundaries, ever so slightly, or ok, sometimes they really test the typical in design (which i LOVE). i thought i'd share a few fun new finds, in case you are in the market for a particular or unusual wow piece for your residential or commercial space...
just for fun...enjoy!

that layered look

are you a fan of that layered look lately? the slip dress over just about everything these days, from t-shirts to sweatshirts? i go in and out of thinking i could pull it off...
these were a few favorite looks should i ever attempt it. enjoy!

have a fabulous weekend!

happy friday friends! what are you up to this weekend? are you off to anywhere fun?
i know alot of people getting away right now, locally or to exotic or far off places. it's that time of year though right? although we are all in a sort of nesting phase, there is a prompt to jump start our year in some new or exciting way. to set a pace or mood or an overall vibe for our new year. if you have purposefully begun your year in a particular way that accomplishes all of that, i'd love to hear!

my weekend does not quite include exotic or far away places but i do feel a road trip coming on. ;) in between that, i hope to start this book, (probably a tough read at times but the reviews are wonderful), i have a small amount to finish my latest tiny ship series (and might draw up a new one!), and i feel some new wardrobe shopping happening too.

wherever you go, whatever you do this weekend, i hope that you have a fabulous time of it! and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

pretty summer sandals.

a stunning lucite bed.

a gorgeous table top mirror.

whoa, these stools. fab furniture.

ikea hack diy

this "poisson mirror"
is perfection.

a pretty cool water bottle.

a pretty amazing christmas tree.

a pretty little rose mirror side table.

i'm not a huge fan of bread pudding, but this rather deconstructed version looks decadent.

i love each space here, the ways they styled them, the sparseness, the greens everywhere.

loving these suspension ceiling lamps.

a really great bedroom nightstand.

a very modern fruit bowl.

if you're in the market for a vintage mirror, head here. etsy love.

these most stunning diamond wedding band i may have ever seen.

really like what she stitches.

this wallpaper, just wow and yes please.

whoa, this space is kind of crazy but kind of cool all at the same time.

for entertaining, these etched cocktail glasses are beautiful.

and the idea of moving slower these days is intriguing to me as i begin a new year. on that note, inspired by this and this.

and seriously, this made my entire week.

artist feature: esther stewart

really inspired today by the very graphic color and pattern combinations coming together in australian artist esther stewart's paintings...
hinting of landscapes, seen from the inside out or the outside in, (or at least that's how i view them!) her work comes alive through the use of planes intersecting, patterns connecting, overlapping, line upon line, carefully lined up against one another, comparing, contrasting. your eye continuously moves about the painting, around it. they are interesting, curious and lovely in their stillness. just saying...enjoy!

dream weaver

"registered architect, interior designer and textile artist" natalie miller finds weaving and macramé "satisfying and meditative." i find natalie's work similarly, explorative, mesmerizing and just plain beautiful...
"natalie has been teaching weaving and macramé for the last 5 years around australia, new york, paris, hong kong, singapore, japan, bali and thailand. she is part of leading textile and design tours and creative retreats currently in thailand, japan, hong kong, and bali. to unite crafters around the world and bring back the beauty of hand making."

i love the term hand making. don't you? enjoy...
