Wishlist #4

This week's drool-worthy items:

Monogram wax seals:
I've seen a lot of monogrammed pendants around and of course I am a sucker for great, monogrammed items to personalize a present, a wardrobe or a house. But I am particularly in LOVE with this necklace. They are all hand made so every one will be slightly different- and therein lies the beauty. I am for sure going to buy one of these today!

Gustavian Vintage Bed:
I have been looking for a great headboard for a while. I love the old-school, velvet headboards and have had my eye on those for a while. But I wasn't quite sold, until I saw this version from Vive Terra. I love how it takes the feminine form of headboard and mixes it with the masculine, unfinished wood. Perfect for a couples bedroom.... other than the price. I wish I was handy enough to make this myself. Any ideas?

Catherine Hammerton's Scalloped Wallpaper.
Wallpaper is such a fun way to add color and pattern to any room but I especially love this paper because it adds texture as well. I tried my hand at wallpapering a few months ago and I have to say, it wasn't as tricky as you might think (and I had a a pattern I had to line up!) Plus, a lot of papers now are pre-pasted and are made to come off the wall a lot more easily than papers in the past. So, yes, I am officially obssessed!


  1. Wanna come over and do my bedroom?


    PS. I love the necklace AND the headboard!

  2. kris- go to a laser cutter and get a quote. find good lumber, use a headboard's structure for a template, and then get the laser cutter to make it for you. you can probably get it all for half the price.

  3. Oh where oh where have my junky girls gone? Oh where oh where can they be?

    I miss your posts.

  4. And so do I! Let's get a move on, ladies!!
