Artemide’s Nesso Lamp….

One of a few iconic pieces that I absolutely adore is the Nesso lamp.  It was designed by Giancarlo Mattioli in 1967.  It is said to be inspired by the Italian women's belly button (those Italians....)  It is featured in the 20th Century collection at the Metropolitan Museum of art.  This lamp has been in continuous production for 40 years now.  I own a reproduction of the larger and an authentic Nessino lamp, which is the smaller version of the Nesso.     ! … [Read more...]

Boho Hippie Chic…..

In the last few years my interior design style has evolved quite a bit.  I would say that the foundation of my style is modern-but I have to have color.  I'm drawn to Scandinavian design for it's pops of color, but Boho/Hippie Chic has been on my radar lately.  I love a global look to a home and Boho definitely has a heavy influence of Middle Eastern and Moroccan textiles.  It's hard to integrate this look with out making the room look cheap.  It's a fine art getting this look right.  I've been … [Read more...]

Jim Morrison’s Laurel Canyon home……

So it's no secret that I LOVE The Doors.  I've been consistently obsessed since I was 15 years old.  As a young romantic, I fell in love with Jim's poetry, the music and of course that face.  As I've matured I've come to the realization how young these guys were and that unfortunately drugs played a huge role in their music careers.  So many people, in the pursuit of expanding their minds, fall prey to the destruction of drugs.  Regardless of my more sobering view at 35, I still adore them.  In … [Read more...]

Homemade Organic Hair Pomade….

Like I've said before, I'm on a mission to make all my family's cleaning and beauty products.  I'm doing one product at a time and a friend introduced me to a recipe for hair pomade by blogger Mommypotamus.  I must say, I LOVE this recipe.  Who knew I could save so much money and eliminate toxins by making my own hair pomade??  When I was married, my x love this recipe-he'd probably still use it if I'd continue to make it for him!  He was spending at least $20 every time he went for a hair cut … [Read more...]

HGTV’s Emily Henderson……

So I stumbled upon Emily Henderson's blog a few days ago.  I'm obsessed.  I'm wasting hours upon hours pouring over her blog.  She lives in L.A. with her husband and soon to be baby boy and owns her own design firm. She graduated college from the University of Oregon then headed to New York and became a shop girl for Jonathan Adler where she discovered her talent for prop styling.  In 2007 she won HGTV Design Star and gained her own show on HGTV. Four good reasons to check out her blog- #1 … [Read more...]

Homemade Organic Deodorant….

Did you know you could make your own Homemade Organic Deodorant??  I've been reading up on the dangers of deodorant.  Mainly about the preservatives and aluminum in it that are linked to breast cancer.  Not to mention anything that keeps you dry is blocking your pores, trapping waste in your body-yuck.  I'd rather just sweat.  So, yesterday I decided to make my own.  I found a super easy recipe, tweaked it a bit and now I'm giving it a go. Try the recipe and I will keep you posted on the … [Read more...]
