Mirror, Mirror

I just picked up the July/August issue of Elle Decor. I’d sort of flipped through it at the grocery store and I wanted to pick it up for the amazing photos in an article called Swept Away that features gold and brass bath fittings. Trust me. You HAVE to see that one!

But the feature that had me drooling was a Manhattan apartment decorated by Steven Gambrel. There is this amazing mirror in the main entry that just blew me away. It’s a vintage, hand carved Italian piece and it looks smashing in the foyer, dont you think?

Another favorite piece is the Scratchout rug by Carini Lang in the home’s family room. It looks amazing with the mix of neutrals and that fabulous orange.

See the whole apartment at Steven Gambrel’s site and drink in the amazing awesomeness of this place!

A giraffe and a half

I love giraffes. I’m not sure what it is about them that attracts me but I think they are some of the coolest creatures around. I also love cool, oversized animal sculptures. So, you can imagine my delight when I chanced across this listing at Mecox Gardens for a four foot plus giraffe statue made of brass. I just wish I had the $1250 pricetag… So it could come home with me.
