I have an obsession with Juliska. . Each piece is mouth blown, and incredibly delicate and unique (and supposedly dishwasher-safe, but I don't believe that for a second). So unique in fact, that I was afraid I'd received the wrong glasses as wedding gifts because of their varying heights. Whatever, I love it. The company is only six years old, and has quite a sense of humor.
It's defined by delicate details that almost look like water glistening on the outside of the glass. They have all sorts of products, from vases and votive holders to tumblers. Each one holds it's own beauty and could be left out as decoration no matter what it's intended purpose.
Many local boutique stores carry Juliska products, including other tableware goods. You can also purchase Juliska online at Sallie Home.

Who ever said you can have only 1 chandiler?!

John Derian

I have discovered an amazing talent artist who has a furniture line..and another accesory line for target! One of my finding is his moroccan pouf which is absolutely amazing they come in a variety of colors even in metallic silver and gold! Here are the lovely moroccan pouf used in interiors.
This website shows the different colors avaliable and the pricing for the Jon Derian moroccan pouf!

I love how Schuyler Samperton incorporated a leather pouf into her living room. Photo, Paul Costello for Domino, April 2007.
Kelly Wearstler's son's room, as seen in Domicilium Decoratus, published by Harper Collins, 2006.

Another place to find moroccan pouf is Plantation in L.A. This shop carries handmade ottomans in an array of colorful leathers. The poufs are 15" high by 19" in diameter and cost $245.

Casa Cruz Restaurant

Another fabulous interiors in Buenos Aires, Argentina 

Casa Cruz Restaurants in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Trendsetters come and go, but there are few whose food is truly sublime. Casa Cruz plays up to the hipsters; with its unmarked entrance, dim lighting, expanses of mahogany, and cozy banquettes. The chef is Germán Martitegui. This place is this the single best restaurant in Buenos Aires? Believe the hype. But what about the interior isn't it amazing?!

Faena hotel + universe

Faena Hotel + Universe is located in the El Porteño Building in the center of Buenos Aires, Puerto Madero Este, a stone's throw from the Costanera Sur, the city's riverside promenade. It is designed by one of the most talented and amazing designers Philippe Stark.

Barcelona chair

The Barcelona chair was exclusively designed for the German Pavilion, that country's entry for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, which was hosted by Barcelona, Spain. The design resulted from collaboration between the famous Bauhaus architect Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe and his longtime partner and companion, architect and designer Lilly Reich. An icon of modernism, the chair's design was inspired by the campaign and folding chairs of ancient times.

Barcelona Chair

Mary Anne Smiley interiors
I came across a fellow bloger today and discovered a beautiful room designed by Dallas designer Mary Anne Smiley. I love the way Mary Anne mixed different elements, such as antiques, chrome, a Kelly Wearstler rug and Barcelona chairs. chairs. The room incorporates different elements, and makes the interior so flow together. The different elements give the interior character, Which makes this room amazing and unique..

The G Hotel

Philip Treacy designed and created this hotel with Irish architecture and design group Douglas Wallace.
The results are absolutely amazing.

G Hotel's penthouse suite which is named for Linda Evangelista - the 80's supermodel who was the first to wear a Treacy hat on the catwalk.

I love how the different colors layered on top of each other.
Interesting contrast.

I love the rich vibrant colors of the deep blue an purple.
