C. Wonder(ful) in Soho

After hearing about this shop from a friend and then reading about it, I couldn't wait to see C. Wonder in person.  A few days ago, I had the opportunity to head to Soho and check it out.

Everything is beautifully displayed and fully stocked.  They also do monogramming in-store.  We loved the kitchen area.
Some of the products they offer, those ikat dishes were a favorite among us.
All the color and pattern makes this a beautiful space full of lots of goodies.
The area for home was my favorite--beautiful frames, dishes, bone, horn, mother of pearl and lacquered boxes, pillows, blankets, trays, coasters, wine stoppers, napkin rings, etc.  A great place for gift shopping or picking up something for yourself.  :)
 The elephant tray and woven box were some of my purchases.  They are a nice compliment to the foo dogs I just picked up in Hong Kong.
Well worth the visit if you're in the area.

Martha's Entertaining: A Year of Celebrations

Since I can remember purchasing Martha Stewart's first Entertaining book many years ago, I wanted to add this to my library as well.  Even though most people don't entertain or live life on the scale that Martha does, what I appreciate about her is the inspiration and abundance of ideas she provides no matter what the topic.  This large book is full of beautiful photographs of gorgeous food, tables and celebrations.  Sure to enhance entertaining no matter what the size or locale.  Available on Amazon.

High Street Market Home opened today!  It offers a nice selection of vintage, custom and new items for the home, I found things to be well priced.  There are sale items and a deal of the day feature. 
Well worth a look--enjoy!

The Perfectly Imperfect Home

My copy of The Perfectly Imperfect Home arrived from Amazon just before we left on vacation. Since I was facing a sixteen hour flight, I was thrilled to have a good great read. This is one of the best decorating books I've purchased. The ideas sparked are marinating in my mind and I can't wait to implement them. For those of you who miss Domino Magazine, Deborah Needleman has done it again :)

Two more things I'm in love with from High Street Market Home

High Street Market Home is opening in a couple days and the sneak peeks are killing me--I want everything so far!  But these two, in addition to the lamp I posted previously, are favorites.
This faux bamboo tray table can be used as a bar, an end table or for entertaining.  It can be folded up and put away or left out as a permanent piece.  The tray is removable.
This turtle shell brass tray is so clever and unique, it could be purely decorative or used to hold various items.  It is based on a vintage piece the owners found.

"To work for us you had to be talented and nice.  You couldn't be talented and mean."
