I recently found the phrase “Lady Porn” and you know, I really had no idea what that meant until the Restoration Hardware catalog arrived in my office yesterday. Then, it hit me. Lady Porn is the ultimate drooling over things I may not be able to afford now but maybe someday in twenty to fifty years, I might possibly be able to. But probably not. At the moment, my husband & father in-law are in the midst of constructing this beautiful ocean front home on Little John Island and I use that as my blank canvas when I dream of all these majestic pieces I would love to own. Honestly, they wouldn’t quite fit in my house but in this architecturally interesting space, they would be perfection. Currently, I am addicted to the idea of reclaimed wood. I just think the whole concept is amazing. It’s great for the eye and even better for the environment. These pieces that they have this season, which are made with reclaimed wood, make my heart skip, a million beats. The wine rack for instance, if you could even call it that, could beautifully display all my vintage bottles. If I had that in my home, I would walk by it every day and give it a large smooch. Although, it would be hard to keep it full like in this photo because we all know, how I love my wine. It’s like, my one thing. Anyways, I urge you all to check out their website, it’s fantastic. Pricey, yes, but there are always sales going on in which you can grab amazing deals. I would even call them steals.
My plan for spring is to revamp my home. I am starting room by room and re-imagining the space. I’m talking brighter colors, new furniture, interesting spacing of photographs and art. I want everything to be calming and lifting at the same time. I want each space to have its own concept. My very first space, the mud room. I really hate to quote Martha Stewart but I am going to “Your entry way is the first thing people see and it’s the first impression of what your home looks like” True, very true. So I intend to give my entry way a little kick. Can not wait.
Oh and by the way, the french bistro table image I am showing is affordable and a great item for outdoor capps & macarons.
