Looking for the perfect present?

Here are few gift ideas from one of my favorite stores: West Elm. West Elm is different from all the other stores; they do not carry their merchandise for a long time. They are always adding new styles. Many of these beautiful finds can be monogrammed which makes the gift even more personalized.

Kitchen Time!

Now that the holidays have officially started with the Thanksgiving feast, we will spend more time in the kitchen than what we will normally do, whether hosting the turkey dinner for Thanksgiving or baking cookies for our friends. 

This year my family and I hosted turkey day with some of our closest friends in town. And while I have a decent size kitchen, not big nor small, I felt we were bumping across each other while preparing the serving area.  

In honor of that craziness during Thanksgiving and all the many get-together to have, I thought of posting few pictures of modern kitchen designs I have come across and saved in my interior designing folder.

Zig Zag Pattern in the table!

One of the hottest trends in textiles and housewares this year is the chevron pattern. I am totally in love with this print. Better known as “the zig-zag stripes", this print is fresh, simple, chic, modern, and fun. Chiqui & Ita Modern Table Linens has the print of the season in a variety of colors--from brown and white, to multicolor brights. This pattern will bring the graphic element to your table, making it a conversational piece and setting up the mood for your next get-together. Here are some of my favorite fabric finds featuring chevron patterns in a medium weight linen, cotton-duck fabric. If you do not find the color you are looking for, just inquiry, there are many other options to choose from.

Home Office

With today's technology, many businesses are allowing their employees to work from home. Even for those who work independently or stay at home is necessary to have an area apart from the living and common areas to do paper work or enjoy hobbies. There are so many interesting designs for home offices that sometimes they just look like a continuation of the home decor. Preparing the home office in an elegant, modern, or any style you like might not mind the daily grind. Here are some ideas that may inspire you.

Finding the Perfect Chair

I love to spend lazy afternoons sitting down watching TV and navigating online, drinking a good cup of coffee with tons of magazines around me. That way I can switch from a good TV show to reading a good article on my favorites magazines or perhaps post something on my blog or take a look at my Etsy shop. The "only" thing missing is the perfect chair. My dilemma is deciding which one from all on my list. Here are just a few of the many options available in the market…I like all of them...can you help me decide?
