Well, I won't be doing any of the above that weekend. This deadly cold I inherited from Chris continues to take its toll, and I have been asked kindly to stay home so I won't infect the entire office. Blessing in disguise I suppose. While I am on "bed rest" over the next couple of days, I thought perhaps I should send you guys out shopping for me. Location? HomeSense of course!

Inspired by this strikingly impactful living space, here is what I put together with my finds from HomeSense. The graphic area rug sets the tone for the space with its intricate pattern and it looks super high-end. These chevron chairs with beautiful lines and nailhead details strike gold, and they totally remind me of the signature chevron by Mary MacDonald. While this mirrored console with a delicate moroccan flair adds glamour and character to the space, it is also the perfect companion to this jaw droppingly incredible mirror in muted gold. It was on markdown and I am still kicking myself for not picking it up!
The campaign side table brings a hint of masculine quality to the collection. For a touch of whimsy and color, I heart these Wickford Sandpiper plates by Kate Spade and the cheerful yellow ranunculus to brighten up any space.
Looking No. 2 is all about refined elegance with an edgy twist, and my inspiration for this collection comes from this serene yet hip home office put together by Sarah Richardson. Wrapped in creamy walls, off-white furnishings, and super soft carpeting, this space is calm and tranquil. Sarah plays up the fun factor with the graffiti drapes, the metal basket weave pendant, and a health dose of animal print ... just for good measure.

The jumping off point for this collection is this handsome chest of drawer in a natural oak finish and the beautiful oncidium orchid arrangement in bright yellow. The hardware on this tall boy has a gun metal grey and hammered metal appeal, just to score some extra brownie points on my book. To introduce a hint of Asian flair into the space (such as the faux bamboo coffee table in our inspiration), I found this little cheerful number with traditional line and a table top that reminds me of the signature Richard Nixon motif by Jonathan Adler.
For wow factor, I love this classic armchair upholstered in this graphic zebra print, and a pair of faux coral lamps in sumptuous turquoise hit just the right note. With a few more playful accessories such as the bull dog bookends, yellow globe, and the chic message cards, this home office is all set for business.
Hope you enjoy this edition of my HomeSense treasure hunt. Now is your turn to head out and come back to tell me what you caught your eyes at your local HomeSense!
Happy Weekend everyone ... and more resting for moi.
