zhush.com. The answer is simple; sometimes, I get a good feeling, I'll just instinctively know it's right for the store. It's the same for all the interiors featured here...like these fabulous Moroccan inspired rooms designed by Lucy Interior Design. The bold, vibrant colors and use of graphic shapes throughout, give off such a happy vibe! Hopefully, today will bring an abundance of mood enhancing inspiration my way.
Horn and bone pieces are so versatile, both in fashion and home decor...no wonder they've been so popular lately! Here are two of my favorites that we offer at zhush, you can check out the rest here!
Downton Abbey? I'm so completely wrapped up in this BBC mini-series for a multitude of reasons, one of them being the fabulous interiors of this fictional estate. While beautiful, some of the rooms might appear stiff or cold, but the kitchen quarters at Downton are always so warm and inviting. Copper fixtures and pots plus a real deal butler's pantry loaded with silver accoutrements are just some of the reasons I find this old British kitchen so appealing. Even today, it seems the English have warm, inviting kitchens down to a science, as evidenced by these classic kitchens by Plain English. The Agas and steaming kettles of tea get me every time, especially in the dead of winter.
Veranda magazine the other day, I came upon this image by sister design team, Kirsten Kelli. The Keith Haring artwork here, immediately took me back to the mid-eighties, and more significantly, a prized swatch watch that I had proudly worn then. Beyond bummed that I literally have no idea what happened to this watch, as I would love to see it again. A fervent online search revealed only this version, mine was bright red, but this is pretty close. Like a Proustian Madeleine, I was instantly transported back to this decade, which now in hindsight seems like one giant John Hughes film. Do any design elements ever make you feel nostalgic?
House Of Fifty comes out! As a contributor, I get to see a sneak peak, and I have to tell you, this issue is sooo good...jam packed with tons of inspirational photos, ideas, recipes and amazing organizational tips. The perfect pick-me-up for the winter blahs. Even more exciting, House of Fifty is now an app, making it even easier to read on your phone or i-Pad! I'm off to download mine now!

my shop could use a little artwork to round off our selection of home decor, and topping off this list is Spicher and Co. The artist/owner's home (shown here) was featured in Country Living, last year. It was the mermaid (above) and giant flowers in the master bedroom that really captured my attention.
agate clocks we carry featured on the "slice of life" page of The Daily! And, it's always so great to see other blogs post zhush.com items...major love! Thanks so much to these fab blogs this week:
these classic pieces. There's no doubt in my mind that these wishbones chairs will be mine, the only question is which wish to choose? Every time I think I've settled on a color, another hue calls my name...decisions, decisions...
