Simply gorgeous outdoor furniture from designer Patricia Urquiola. These are the kinds of pieces that can make your yard feel like a resort.

Fireplace is Coming Together

The little elephant friend is from Ross. The screen is a piece of display board that I covered with (clearance-priced) fabric and taped to the back. I’m finally embracing my hoarding of catalogs and magazines and putting them on display. I’m on the fence with those three vases. Maybe I just need to switch out the dried grass, I dunno. It’s nice to have the fireplace be a focal point rather than a black hole of 80’s design.

After watching this little video, I think I’d bring my own bottle of Clorox before unpacking:

PPS Gene Autry from STEVEN PIPES on Vimeo.

Seriously, check out all the little room videos on The Parker Palm Springs website. I think the video for “Villas” is supposed to be the ladies version of The Hangover.

Trina Turk always brings a fab 60s style to her designs, and I’m really digging the Fall 2011 air travel glamour look.

Her holiday dresses are out, too.
