When one’s job is to shop all day every day, it takes something really special or unique to grab one’s attention. The physical rush when I see that perfect piece causes my heart to beat a little faster and I lose all sense of my surroundings.
Some of the pieces below are pieces I have recently found, and a few are ones that I fall in love with a little more each time I see them. The lines and proportions of the tuxedo sofa below are simply perfect!!! The ebonized fluted cocktail table is the punctuation mark in any statement room. Each of these pieces are beautiful and unique and add that special something to any room.
I am at a place where I do my best to only buy pieces for my home that I truly love. I have come to realize that if I am totally mesmerized by something and it gives me joy each time I look at it, it will not become a piece that I am looking to replace in 6 months.
I hope some of these pieces serve to inspire you.

It is usually the small things in the right places that give one that extra touch of style and chicness. It is the string of pearls, the diamond studs, the addition of truffle oil or champagne, that will take things from good to great. Every so often our home needs the same boost.
There are really only a handful of items that can immediately up the chic factor of any space. When a small but impactful update is in order, these three items will be all you need!

People usually think to add unique lighting in the kitchen. However, I feel that pendant lights and chandeliers make an even bigger impact in more unexpected areas like the living room or hallway. Here are a few that have major style.

I love the use of mirrors for so many reasons. They are the design equivalent of Houdini. They can give the illusion that a space is larger, ceilings are taller, rooms are brighter and make a space look as though there are more windows than there actually are. Without a doubt, mirrors are a designer’s best and most used tool.
Petal Mirror, Frederick Wall Mirror, Evie Geo Mirror, Cassia Mirror, Studded Mirror
Quatrefoil Mirror $347
These mirrors below not only make a statement, they serve to balance out a wall with a single window!
