Like many of you out there "J'adore" Jonathan Adler! So I was happy as a clam (someone has got to find out if clams really are happy...but you know what I mean) to see this "what's hot ! people" page in the latest Elle Decor (July/August 2007). Mr. Adler has begun a collaboration with Larson-Juhl, well known framing company to introduce his fab new line of frames.

Jeffrey Bilhuber will always be known as one of the greats. I have always admired the way he is able to blend traditional pieces with the modern. Inspired by the likes of Billy Baldwin and William Haines , Mr. Bilhuber worked wonders with the apartment of John and Andrea Stark of the Stark Carpet family, as seen in the Oct. 2005 issue of House & Garden:

So here is my new Powder Room floor! (The tile is all from the Walker Zanger Tribeca Collection). I can' t tell you how exciting it is to see progress.
Then the lotus pendant available through Z Gallerie (as seen via the More Ways to Waste Time blog...if you haven't seen Leah's blog you must!) and mirror(via one of my best friends who moved and had to leave this lovely thing behind with me!) will be topping it off.
OK...I think I have been obsessing about the beach lately. It's definitely time for a vacation. But just one more thing.
Susan Delurgio and Alisha Peterson are getting a lot of press lately, but just in case you missed them, they have opened a shop in Fairfax, California that I think is a "must see" if you like anything beach-y. It is called Beach House Style and they have put together a great combination of furniture and accessories that would please the most avid of beachcombers. Here is a peak via Coastal Living:
The mix of contemporary and vintage finds is done with great style, and the way those fabrics are put together is brilliant! Give me a Bertoia chair mixed with vintage beach any day.

It is the individual elements that make up the whole, and Fiona Newell Weeks can really put them together in a very pretty way. Here are some images of her own house as seen in the July/August Southern Accents magazine:
Ted Weldon is an artist here in Sacramento specializing in landscapes, figures and contemporary abstracts. I have had the pleasure of working with Ted on a number of commissioned pieces, and he is such a pro. He is very talented, and I think I am fairly picky about art (having grown up with a mother who was a curator). I love Ted's work and I simply had to share!
These are two of my favorite pieces. Beautiful light quality.

I just got my latest Southern Accents and as soon as I saw the cover, I jumped right in. Atlanta Designer Jackye Lanham created this laid back summer home with architect Bill Litchfield. They designed a fresh summery home that looks like it has the history of an old beach house...the kind that I love. Some of you may remember my post showing progress pics for my own house. I hope I can do so well!

The use of asian pagodas and ceramic foo dogs has been running rampant in this past year. I, too, have been hooked by their use, especially in the Hollywood Regency craze of late. This image from Domino Magazine shows the apartment of Nick Olsen (assistant to Miles Redd!). I was recently lucky enough to run across a pair of foo dogs that match the pair on Nick's sofa back table:

The Second Sunday of every month, the Sacramento Antique Faire sets up shop under the Highway 50 overpass between 22nd and 24th Streets. I took a quick walk- through last Sunday, and thought I'd share a few pics:
These images are of vintage Bakelite jewelry from the 30's. Pamela Lee from San Francisco is known as the "Bakelite Lady" and travels to alot of the antique fairs with her beautiful collection. If you are interested, Pamela is very low tech, but reachable by phone: (415) 282-7642.
