Anthropologie Window - Green Chalkboard

This new window display covers a lot of things. There is a chalkboard wall similar to this chalkboard catalog spread from a last year but this time in green. There is also a yellow stripe coming down the shelving on the wall, across the floor and along the table {see the closeup in the second photo}.



Around the corner they have a bed with a headboard made up of sheets of paper each with a letter forming a saying.  You could make this out of paper bags and a few dowels but I'm not sure how well it would hold up if you actually slept in the bed.  In real life it might make some great artwork.



It looks interesting for a visual display though.

Public Service Announcement

For those who are still looking....



...three of these were still available at the Target in Lowell, MA.  I passed them up but took pictures so I can make them in colors I enjoy.  Someday.

Louis Vuitton - Golden Eggs

I thought this new window display was clever {as usual}.  If I recall correctly, the interiors of the eggs are gold in color, and if they aren't then they should be.




Now if only they'd stop snatching up stock to try for a hostile takeover of Hermès.  I would think owning 60 companies would be enough.....

The Nolitan Hotel

I really like this new little {kind of} hotel in Nolita, the part of Manhattan I usually wind up in every trip to Manhattan - sometimes on purpose and sometimes accidentally.  I have seen the Nolitan Hotel described as luxurious and maybe it is in person, from the it photos seems to be more comfy and a bit spartan which is a good combination in a hotel.





The bath tub is in the bedroom but at least there is a curtain surrounding it if you prefer.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves, Paris.

I found this adorable Parisian pastry shop, La Pâtisserie des Rêves, on Pinterest the other day and fell in love so I immediately went looking for more pictures.

I especially love this seating area, it's very residential feeling.  What a great place to spend some time.

Target & Missoni

I went over to Target today to see the Missoni items and by 1 pm the store looked like it had been ransacked.  All I can think is the running of the brides at Filene's Basement {and if you don't know what that is, see this clip}.  There was a woman there with a friend telling her everything she had purchased that morning which seemed to be everything they were selling, and that the line was crazy long in the morning.  It's a good thing I waited because I would have been driven crazy if I had to wait in line.

I tried to see things online before I went and was met with this.


To me, the collection was about what I expected it would be.  The stuff was okay but it's still Target quality so I got some socks, folders and a candle {future super cute pencil holder}, but overall nothing I felt was super special.  I'd kind of rather save up for the real thing.  Someday.

Did anyone get anything they absolutely loved?

Hotel Missoni

Today is the day the new Missoni collection comes out for Target. I've seen all the previews and find some of the items interesting but the colors seem a bit off from their normally vibrant palette {there's a LOT of flesh tone in the colors}.  I'm planning on stopping by to check things out in person since there is a pair of shoes that might be calling my name.

I thought I'd post a few pictures of the Hotel Missoni in Edinberg, I the design was by the Matteo Thun, the same person who did this hotel.

This is my favorite picture, and seriously, if they sold this spread at Target I'd be waiting at the door when it opened.

Anthropologie Window Display - Denim Flowers

Following along with the 70s theme, I found these denim flowers crawling all over the exterior wall of Anthropologie.
