Kate Spade AZ Store


Over the weekend my husband and I stopped over at the Kate Spade store at the Fashion Square Mall (in Scottsdale, AZ!)

They were having a HUGE sale & it was pretty fabulous- as was the store. Shopping at Kate Spade is so much fun because the store is designed so beautifully & it is so COLORFUL! I love the gold/white wallpaper and the white striped pattern on the ebony floors.

Have you ever been to a Kate Spade store? Which one? Did you purchase anything over the weekend sale? (scroll down to see the shoes I bought!)

Restoration Hardware Store in Arizona

my favorite sofa, Soho Tufted Sofa

I’m finally posting all of my pics from our 2 hour adventure in the new Scottsdale, AZ Restoration Hardware store. I have 3 favorite pieces in the store right now other than my 17th C. Monastery Dining Table . The first is the Soho Tufted Sofa. I’d love to have it in the color fog. My other favorite pieces include the Deconstructed 19TH C. English Wing Chair & the Montpellier Armoire in Black (much more beautiful in person!)

Do you own anything from Restoration Hardware? Or are you saving up for any particular piece?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this armoire, Montpellier Armoire in Black

Chairloom, Furniture Makeovers

What are your favorite decor websites? Ever since I discovered Chairloom I am a bit of a stalker. They also have the best Facebook updates, you MUST FOLLOW! When it comes to a full furniture makeover, Chairloom does it like no one else.

I am anxious to have some of my own chairs made over – hopefully in the next month so stay tuned. In the mean time, here are just a few of my favorite before & after pieces.

& this is a before/after of their new showroom in Ardmore, PA. I cannot wait to visit!

Bailey’s Home and Garden

a really beautiful store that i have never been to (but would love to visit)…
located in Bridstow, Herefordshire.

the concept for the store is equally cool,

The things we sell are a surprising mix of vintage and new from a variety of sources – but they all share the qualities integral to our repair, reuse, rethink philosophy.

One of our favourite things is to reuse unloved bits and pieces (small or large) that we find on our travels, and give them a new lease of life – it’s our version of recycling… so abandoned bobbins from old textile mills turn up on our shelves as egg timers, lamp bases or string holders; scraps of floor board become mirror frames, tables or even kitchen units.

When we’re not rescuing and recycling, we design simple useful products with a subtle sense of humour and nice labels. We also source some things from small family run companies who have been making the same things for generations – such as beautiful Burleigh pottery – still made in Stoke-on-Trent.

Our biggest project so far has been the move to Whitecross Farm – it’s taken about 2 years to sympathetically restore and repair the run down buildings and turn them into our store, which is definitely worth a visit.”

the owners have also written 2 books, Simple Home: Calm Spaces for Comfortable Living and Recycled Home i can’t wait to check them out!
