Perch Design

Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee, every little bird in the tall oak tree.
The wise old owl, the big black crow, flappin’ their wings singing go bird go!

I love Perch Design. Everything is so clean and white, so happy and fun. I’m crazy about the salt + pepper “feet” and the early bird lamp; gosh, so cute. Did you see the gordon lightfoot lamp? You know you love it! Their vases are sweet too, they really have a simple whimsical style that just works. Perch Design is light-hearted and happy along with modern and functional. Very cherpy! All items are designed by Brooklyn, NY based artist Amy Adams who uses white ceramic that is glazed and smooth to the touch. If you love birds, you’re adore Perch Design. What do you think?

Blow rockin’ robin, ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight!

Barneys New York + Others Coming to Boston!

Learn more about the opening of Barney’s here.

Just in from the Boston Globe…

“Sexy stilettos and sumptuous handbags will be up for grabs at Jimmy Choo, which is tentatively slated to open its doors at Copley Place in April. The store — the company’s 16th in the United States — is designed to have the feel of a luxurious 1940s boudoir, complete with chandeliers, velvet-quilted sofas, and satin-paneled walls, according to a company statement.

This spring, Copley Place shoppers can also look forward to the contemporary clothier Max Studio and youth-inspired Lucky Brand Jeans, a mall spokeswoman said.”

Pillows + Throws

If you’ve lost focus, just sit down, wrap up in your little blankie and watch Project Runway. That’s the best therapy for the winter blues.

I’ve been on this whole “throw” trip lately. I purchased one the other day in lime with fuschia circles stitched all over it that I just adore, and a few weeks prior, I picked up a robin’s egg blue wool throw for my bed with velvet trim. I plan to start (another) project in the next month, designing a modern quilt that’s retro inspired in the size of, you guessed it, a throw. One more mention of my throw addiction and you’re going to throw up, right? Hopefully not after you’ve seen these beauties I found today on Pillows + Throws.

SALE ALERT: By the way, Apartment Therapy mentioned that Thomas Paul pillows are on sale at Pillows + Throws since the line is being discontinued, so DO NOT miss that.

Okay here are my top picks. Aren’t they lush? Cozy up!
