Finds of the Day

Here are my "Top Tuesday" picks!!!

Pick #1:
These adorable Jack Rogers flats regularly retail for $198, but they are on sale for $59.90 at Rue La La today only!  To purchase, go here: Jack Rogers flats @ Rue La La

Pick #2:

How cool are these Sesto Meucci leather wedges?  They aren't your typical wedge sandal --- they make a sophisticated statement..... but they also normally come with a $242 price tag.  You can get them for $59.90 today only at Rue La La!  To purchase: Sesto Meucci Sandals @ Rue La La

Pick #3:

I have a thing for glass and gold-toned metal tables lately, and this Jazmin table from Joss & Main is perfect for people who want a little extra sparkle in their living area!  I adore the faux bamboo detailing.  Normally almost $700, this end table is affordably priced during their furniture finds sale for $289 and change :)  Shop here: Abraham Side Table @ Joss and Main

Pick #4:

I tried on this silk bengaline Shoshanna dress at Monkee's the other day, and I fell in love with it.... the fit is incredible! (Oh, and it has POCKETS!)  Normally it is $295, but bluefly has the pink, grey, and cerise on sale for $82.79 for a limited time.  Shop here: Shoshanna Bengaline Dress @ Bluefly

Pick #5:
This Lamshop monogrammed table featured on One Kings Lane is classic, yet different enough to really catch your eye.  I love the asian-influenced legs combined with the preppy monogram stripe.  These elite tables are $3,325 (yes, you read that correctly...yikes!) but today's One Kings Lane boutique sale features them for $1,999.  If this price tag is a little high for you, don't worry:  this could be a really great DIY project!  To shop: Lamshop Table @ One Kings Lane

Pick #6:
I have been wanting a ceramic garden stool (to use as an end table), but I've had a hard time finding one that I really like.  This one from West Elm comes pretty close, and it also comes with a great price tag! $129, can't beat that.  Shop here: White Bubbles Ceramic Stool @ West Elm

Pick #7:

So I got this email from Swoozie's this morning.... while most of the emails that I get from them usually get deleted quickly, something about this monogram cuff caught my eye!  I'm glad I kept reading, because this plastic resin cuff is seriously cool :)  At only $19.95, it is an absolute steal too.  There are almost 30 different prints to choose from, and several monogram styles as well.  Check it out here: Monogram Patterned Cuff @ Swoozie's

Pick #8:
This charcoal ash Moderno Trellis wool rug from Rugs USA might need to come home with me!  I love the graphic print on this rug, and the scale of the pattern.  The 6x9 rug is $354.89 and available here:  Ash Moderno Trellis rug @ Rugs USA

Pick #9:

Looking for a great gold toned sunburst mirror?  I found one!  $79 will get you this beauty :)  Shop here: Gold Sunburst Mirror @ Buy.com

Coral & Grey: Contemplating a master bedroom refresh...

Therre is a significant chance that my husband and I will be relocating in the next few months, and thinking about finding a new place to live has me craving a new master bedroom makeover.   The thing is, I really don't want to start from scratch.  Whenever we move, i'll have to design the other bedrooms (no clue what I want to do there yet!), so i'll already have my hands full.  Since I still like existing pieces we have in our bedroom design right now, I figured that it would be much more practical to do a "refresh" instead.  Currently, our room is a mix of crisp white, silver, and dark grey. 

To get a fresh look, i'm contemplating throwing in coral and mixed patterns.  I don't want coral all over the place, just pops of it.  I kind of like the way coral and neutrals (especially grey) look together.....

I like the balance of the coral in this room.... but I think there is too much white for my taste.

I think these coral and grey invitations are just too cute!

How gorgeous is this graphic headboard???

Some more cool rooms with the coral/grey palatte:

This bedroom is probably the closest thing I've found to the look I'm going for:

More bright pops of coral....

Here's the inspiration for my "theme board":

I've already ordered some of the new pieces for our room, and they are on their way:)  I'll be sure to post some before & after pics as soon as the new stuff arrives! Hopefully I'll be able to get everything added to our room before we actually have to move.....
