Take this traditional wing back for example. I love the masculine quality via its shape, the grey plaid fabric, the polished chrome nailhead detail, and its espresso frame. This comfortable and stylish chair perfect for any man cave and is "ladyproof".
Speaking about man cave, here is a stunningly handsome bench with navy blue herringbone upholstery, tapered ebony legs, and chrome nailheads for a crisp, classic look. I would love to have this bench at the foot of my bed (as if I have anymore room in my bedroom for a bench).
Are you ready for an ultimate dream for the male species? A leather headboard! I am usually opposed to anything leather but in this case, I may actually be fine if I am doing a ultra manly room. After all, I love the diamond tufting and this headboard actually reminds me of the super hot and trendy chesterfield sofa.
Now for all you ladies out there, have I got the chair for you. This is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional wing back and this lavender fabric is very similar to the Maze Work fabric by Dwell Studio. A++ for sophistication, comfort, and the right doses of feminine touch.
Ladies, this is the ottoman you need to go with the lavender wingback: a delightful piece upholstered in a cream and taupe greek key fabric. Its timeless pattern and colorway make this preppy ottoman a truly versatile piece: from bedroom to living room, this ottoman can travel from room to room.
Cross-leg stools remain one of my favourite pieces of furniture for its chic and glam appeal. These three are on clearance and if you are not crazy about the fabric options here, get them reupholstered! I happen to love the deep plum and the acid mossy green for an instant bold statement.
Hello Art Deco stool! I love the scale and the shape of this stool (believe it or not, I found it in the bath section) and I would love have gold leaf for the base and upholster the top with a killer faux ostrich leather in cream!
Once a faux bamboo fan, always a faux bamboo fan. Here is a little side table with a polished chrome faux bamboo base. Check out the gracious lines at the tip of the leg. I wasn't too crazy about the top but for $99, you will still have money left on the table for a nice marble to go on top.
I am getting more and more crazy about the color plum, and debating if it is the color for Christmas this year. Want to see how Sarah Richardson uses plum in a room? Check out this Hilltop contemporary home.
Animal print is also big on my craving list and really, can you say no to this mustard yellow zebra and leopard in soft grey? Love them both and perhaps even having them sitting next to one another. Now I just have to go back to get them!
If you are looking for a floral print and slightly larger pillow, here is a metallic beauty for you: 24" x 24" for only $29.99.
I am also in the market for a piece of artwork for my bedroom. Since I am drawn to extravagance quality from both manmade luxury and the animal kingdom, here are a couple of options that caught my eyes: a framed large Louis Vuitton print and a super chic black + white zebra print.
And here is the piece that truly had me at hello: a breathtakingly beautiful image of a magnificent creature. Too bad it was perfectly sold when I got there, and so was this diamond tufted stool with turned legs on casters. Man HomeSense is good ... I just need to get myself there faster!
In case I forgot to mention in my earlier posts, I have been on a mission to find minty green ready-made bedding. Ideally I would like it in thick minty green and white stripes and that is proven to be impossible to find. Look what I found at HomeSense: minty green and white in polka dot by Kate Spade! Thanks HomeSense!!
On a different note, Halloween is quickly approaching (in the retail world) and although I usually skip the festivities and go right to Christmas, these Hello Kitty baking goodness are just too adorable not to bring to your attention. Isn't it fun to make these sandwich cookies and cupcakes with your kids?
Have a fantastic sunny Wednesday everyone!
