Hello my lounging lovelies!

It's been a hectic week here at Chez Zhush!
Looking forward to a low key weekend, 
and putting my feet up for a bit.

How about you?
Will you be sitting pretty?
Relaxing Weekend Wishes!

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light
Of the moon
Come to my window
I'll be home soon

Freakin' Good Design or Just Freaky

Every so often, I come across these chairs....

I really don't know what to make of them!

They clearly make a statement.

An exaggerated, contemporary take
on a classic shaker chair.

And yet...

I just can't seem to shake this image of Lily Tomlin,
and her famous skit on "Laugh In".

{also a classic}

and that's the truth...

Why I Hate, That I LOVE Nine by Design

{Cortney and Robert Novogratz}

The fabulous Novogratz family,
and their hit show on Bravo,
Nine by Design,
has me tuning in each week,
and loathing myself.
{here is why}

1.  My rationalizations for leaving New York City are gone!
It's no secret that I miss living in New York City.
Like many a suburbanite,
I rationalize this choice by convincing myself
that it's just too hard, expensive and all together impossible
to raise a family in the city.
And..hello..I have three children!

Cortney and Robert Novogratz have SEVEN!
 Seven gorgeous children,
running around and growing up in the most
amazing spaces and interiors, designed by their parents.
The two principals of the design firm,
Design Sixx.
Like this uber hip town house.

And this ridiculously cool roof top basket ball court.

2.  I can't seem to lose those last ten pounds of "baby weight".
I had my son almost four years ago.

Cortney just had her seventh baby.
Oh! Good for you Cortney!

3.  I regret going to Law School, and rationalize
that I am too old now
 to go back to school for interior design.

Cortney and Robert are self taught.


4.  I was an English Major with a
Minor in Fine Art.

Here is some of the art they own...

and, look...
they even published
a book!

My reasons could go on and on...but I will sum it up like this:
When I tune into reality shows like The Jersey Shore, I get
to feel all smug about myself.
Watching Nine by Design has quite the opposite affect on me.

Oh, and speaking of the Jersey Shore...
they've made that fab too!
{Bungalow 24}
exasperating, isn't it...

will you be tuning in tonight?
 {you know I will}

Calm, Cool and Collected

A rainy, washed out Sunday, had me
dreaming of sunshine and beach houses.
During this daydream,  I found myself perusing
the online portfolio of Hamptons based design firm,
Mabley Handler.
The colors of the beach and the
serene quality of these rooms 
make for the perfect beach house.

The husband and wife design team of Mabley Handler,
have developed and designed numerous
beautiful homes in the Hamptons.
{Picking just one out of the extensive portfolio was challenging.}

Look + Listen

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow.

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow.

So then I took my turn
Oh all the things I've done
And it was all yellow.

Out Of This World

{The Roots Of Heaven}

Lately, I have become quite obsessed 
with the work of Danish contemporary artist,
Peter Callesen.

{Broken Bird}

Today being Earth Day, 
I thought I would share some of his pieces here,
 since so many of his works deal directly 
with the theme of nature and the environment.

{The Core Of Everything}


{Running Red Poppies}

{Broken Flowers}

{Five Forgotten Thoughts}

{The Birds Of The Air}

Too see more of Peter Callesen's
amazing paper works
and installations,
visit his site,

{Happy Earth Day}
