At home with Anni Sui

Love Anni Sui's fun and funky designs in clothing and in this month's issue of Elle decor, I have to say that her apartment did not disappoint at all. I really did not know what to expect but when I took a look at the images I knew that it was all Anni Sui. It was whimsical, detailed fantasy like a dream. Its Alice in wonderland goes couture. I especially love the peacock on the Armoire

Aaron R Thomas

While googling arcylic furniture I came across the work of Aaron R Thomas and all i have to say is wow. I found many pieces I had seen before in many magazines but never took the time to find out who made them. well it was Aaron R Thomas based out of orange county california and what great work he makes. I especially liked the piece he did of the vintage chair encased in arcylic (pictures above). for more on Aaron R thomas check out his home site http://www.aaronrthomas.com/

I found this bench in tjmaxx at del amo in Torrance; inexpensive and
stylish. The possibilities are endless. The geometric fabric and
choice of color makes it hip modern and traditional. It can go at the
end of the bed, by the entry way (place for people to sit and put
there shoes on). I could go on. The TJmaxx was having a sale on many
things (glass jars included).

clear furniture

Loving the clear furniture, especially when working with a small space. It brings the space together without cluttering it. This is an option for all types of decor, it brings a modern edge to any space. if you want to try this you may want to start with pieces with curvy edges not sharp ones. for the bold and the brave go for it; sharp, curvy, dramatic, sculptured. Its your world you just happen to share it with us.

Steel my Sunshine

Can't you just imagine this in your entry way with a few of your
favorite things on display. This series of stainless steel furniture
by Timothy Oulton featured at HD buttercup in the helms bakery on
Venice blvd was a fresh take on traditonal pieces of furniture. This
can be used with any style of decor.

Reclaimed steel/furniture

In helms bakery in Venice, and I come across this area of old
furniture and art. A lot of them have been polished and some have been
left untouched. Here is a picture of a few pieces I especially like
the big steel item that states DRUGS.
