What I'm lovin' now...

“Buh,duh,duh,duh duh….I’m lovin it”  Made famous by Justin Timberlake and also a really catchy Mickey D’s commercial, this ditty completely captures the essence of what I am craving in design this moment.  Sure, there’s a lot on my plate with: classes, kids, husband, friends, studies, projects, dinners, breakfasts --- you get the picture.  But nothing, and I mean nothing, clears my mind as quickly as hopping between the sheets and digesting all of my new design catalogs and magazines. I create a whole ambience for myself with candles and a glass of wine.  Some might call it pitiful, I call it sheer pleasure!

So what are these little bits of heaven that I am totally lovin’ right now?  What’s satisfying my cravings, you ask?  Here are the top 5 that feed the need this moment:

This is one of those fixtures that is hard to get out of my minds’ eye --- one that I always keep in my back pocket as a “go-to” light.  The styling is wonderfully simple yet completely transfixing.  I wish I had a girls room to put this in right now.  But since that’s not the case, I will have to settle for my home office.  This terrific nugget will gladly replace the boring white ceiling fan.  Perfect!

Gleaming black piano lacquer finish and circular pulls make this treasure lovely.  Maybe it’s that I just finished studying the Art Deco period with it’s high skyscraper styling or if I just dig black but this chest calls to me.

Between the greek pattern and the color, I am guessing that these window treatments were named after Kelly Wearstler’s Viceroy Hotel.  For those fellow “Wearstler-ites” these drapes perfectly capture her essence.  They would work  seamlessly in my dining room but that is a projected completion date of 2012 at the earliest….

Speaking of dining room re-do, a pair these shapely lamps would really add some pizzazz to my room.  It’s so easy to picture these as a pair on the buffet.

But wait!  Just last night I found these on sale at ZGallerie.  And I ordered them for my buffet.  Budget friendly!

Good ol’ Louis XVI never knew that his decorating style would extend into the 21st century but it rocks!  Not only does this look at home in a contemporary room but also with a myriad of other styles.

Although these are 5 extremely safe choices to begin your decorating (or even re-decorating) of your pad, these are only a sampling of what it available.  What I will be “lovin” next month, who knows!  But this is fast becoming a habit that I simply can’t get enough of – wine, candles, magazines and all.  So for now, I’ll have to stick to my intense schedule while dreaming from afar.

Until next week,
