Lulu de Kwiatkowski was mentioned here before, but it was only recently that I discovered her bedding over at Horchow. I imagine the Paradiso (shown below) against a sunny yellow wall… Cane + bamboo patterns are everywhere right now, and I love seeing them. From furniture to textiles, cane is h-o-t!

Horchow has bird panels with a faux-bamboo trim that I love (bird panels are another trend piece right now), this hand-painted umbrella stand with a bamboo motif brass base, a very grown up mirrored chest (would look so pretty in an entryway), and with the rise of peacocks as a motif, why not shake your tailfeathers and try splurging on this settee? I agree, this settee isn’t for me either — but you have to laugh at luxury sometimes because it can look so uncomfortable!

Parker Palm Springs: California Dreamin’

I keep hearing about the Parker Palm Springs, so I had to do a little research and now, share this fantastic escape with you. Located in Palm Springs, California, everything about this place is exquisite (tour the property here). I dream of spending a gorgeous getaway at the Parker, as everything about it screams luxury, celebrity, the good life… Or shall I say everything about it whispers, as it seems like a peaceful spot to unwind, order a fancy pants cocktail (poolside, of course), and slip away from the rest of the world in your own personal cocoon of pleasure.

If you think it has a bit of a Jonathan Adler vibe going on, you’re right. He designed most of the interiors at this little piece of swank heaven (listen to a series of podcasts with Jonathan and Simon Doonan here – they talk about this place exclusively, the inspiration, etc.). I especially love the Moroccan wedding quilt at the food of the bed shown below. I’m still on the hunt for one, if you can help me…

Wouldn’t you love a weekend away at the Parker?
