Gilt-y Finds From Kids Sources!

I was flipping through some magazine this week when I spotted this perfect gold canopy bed… and lo and behold it was from Pottery Barn Teen! I got to poking around and found a bunch of great gilt pieces I never thought in a MILLION years I could find here.

The aforementioned canopy bed– it doesn’t come in king, but if you need a queen (or two twins) this is fantastic.

There is nothing “teen” about this bookcase! A [air flanking a fireplace or window would be STUNNING!

For stationery addicts like myself…

Nothing beats opening your mailbox and finding REAL tangible correspondence inside from someone other than the traffic department warning you that you’ll be getting the boot soon unless you pay up. Iomoi is just the site for those of you who write letters still and want some funky, hollywood regency style stationery. And for those who ONLY correspond via e-mail, they even have e-stationery you can purchase in a variety of types and styles for just $15 a year! I’m SOLD on all counts!

Look further and you’ll find they make custom lucite trays (great for a bedroom dresser catch all), paperweights, custom coasters, address labels and big, fantastic boxes of matches (no more crappy restaurant matchbooks for you!). All of these items would make breathtakingly fab gifts.

I want one of everything please. No, make that two.

(e-mail stationery sample above- so friggin’ cool!)

Inspired Organizing

After a Sunday spent organizing my closets after a whirlwind shopping spree at H&M (which has fantastic things for spring right now), I was thinking about getting my desk ready for my influx of work (wishful thinking?) Then I came across www.seejanework.com, a fantastic site teeming with fabulous, stylish organizational desk accessories. Somehow having a jadeite jar to put your paper clips in and a fabulous wire in-box makes working more fun.
