Sassy Seating!

Last week, Jackson hosted the second annual DeltaCON tradeshow for contract furnishings. There were over 90 vendors and some really awesome products. I must say, though, two chairs have really stuck in my mind as favorites. The first is Herman Miller's SAYL Chair designed by Yves Behar, and the second is the FIT chair by Kimball Office. They are so sassy, and I am proof, too, that they are just as comfortable as they are unique!!

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Fun Weekend and Fair Food

This past weekend was a great one! My high school reunion took place beginning on Friday night and ended with a great party on Saturday night at Jackson's newest restaurant, Parlor Market. The food was delicious, and it was so nice to see so many people that I haven't seen in so many years. Unfortunately, I do not have the first photo, but all in all, it was a nice weekend.

To start the week, Collin and I met some good friends at the MS State Fair last night. Oh my goodness, talk about food, food, food - everywhere! We enjoyed many samplings and even rode the ferris wheel. Just to name a few of our indulgences...hamburger, french fries, cinnamon roll (yum!), and Collin's favorite - philly cheesesteak (without the cheese-ha). Wow! It was a great way to start the week for sure, and the weather was fantastic!!

I hope your week is off to a good start as well!! Happy Tuesday!

Neopolitan, please!

Today, I am loving this image from House Beautiful. The shades of pink with splashes of brown and ivory work so well together...and besides that...they remind me of one of my favorites, neopolitan ice cream. (Sorry, I just had to throw that in there!) Anyway, I especially love the greek key pattern they have used on the pillows and rug. It adds such a splash of personality to the space, and the tufted chair isn't so bad either (love it!) Oh, and how can you not adore the chandelier that adds a feminine touch and a little more formality to the space? Speaking's a tip: if you're wanting to dress up a space and can live without your ceiling fan, think about changing the fan {or ceiling mounted fixture} to a more detailed, formal chandelier. It can really transform a space!

I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Cool (and Hot) Runnings

I recently ran across these ultra-cool and super-hot water faucets by German brand, Dornbracht, and Italian brand, Zucchetti. Although I'm not in the market for one of these at the moment, I just couldn't resist saving them in my "favorites" file for the future. The Dornbracht faucets are sleek and modern while the Zucchetti fixtures are offered in several eye-popping colors that are sure to spice things up in your kitchen or bar area!
