My bedside manner

I went with a salmonish color on my bedroom walls, and this is the look of what is on the left side of my bed. The wall decor is antique, the drum side table was bought at Target's online store many moons ago (I don't know if they still have it or not), the chair is from Anthropologie, the candelabra is from a store in Manhattan (forgot the name of the store, as it was long time ago), and is by a Mexican artist.  The lamp base is from Ikea, and the lamp shade is by Mibo.

My side table in my living room

I am not that big of a fan of white, but somehow I ended up with this lovely side table vignette in my living room. The bird porcelain box and the decanter are both by Jonathan Adler. The half-porcelain-half-glass vase is by Chapeaux. The table has a glass top, and underneath you can see pebbles painted in silver, with rusty, oxidized-looking in-betweens.

VOOS furniture

I want to talk about a showroom/store in Brooklyn called VOOS. It is co-owned by a friend of mine, Serap Demirag. They showcase and sell unique, creative works by local designers. And since Brooklyn is such a hot spot for innovative design minds, they carry some really noteworthy stuff, some of which are pictured below.

These cute felt lamps are designed by VOOS' co-owner Deger Cengiz.

Nautilus Shell House

Talk about a unique organic house. No, these pictures are not from the set of Tim Burton's newest film project. This is an actual house, called Nautilus Shell House,  designed by Javier Senosiain. Beautifully crafted and creative.

Here are a few pics of Javier's other projects:

Etsy post

I wanted to share with you my previous finds from Etsy. I purchased these items many years ago, and still love them to this day.

I got these exact prints by Alberto Cerriteno in June 2009. I placed them in floating frames, so the background inside the frame is my red-colored wall in my bedroom. You can check out his items for sale here.

I also purchased  these gorgeous antiquey-looking necklaces by 1ofmykind in Feb 2007, and still wear them today.

Now onto a piece I have not purchased, but noticed. This side table by Michael Arras is affordable for a great handmade piece of furniture, and you can customize it.
