In the spirit of holiday giving, let’s talk about some things I want for myself, shall we? Hey, don’t you judge. My birthday is less than three months away and I have to start planning ahead, mmk? These are all things for the home, running the gamut of price ranges from "Hey! I can afford this!" to "Yeah, not-so-much". Maybe you will find something that you want to buy for
me because I am so nice your home too.
BTW, here is some proof that I am in fact nice and should be given presents. I was on the phone when I ordered my coffee at Starbucks last week (rude I know), and since the barista wasn’t able to ask for my name, he named me this instead. Basically made my day.
|Nice Girl On Phone. That's me!|
Alright let’s get to that list.
First off are these awesome pink agate bookends. I will take agate bookends in any color, but I think these pinkies are extra special. The site where I found them has lots of alternative color options if hot pink doesn't fit your décor scheme. It doesn’t really fit mine either, but I think I could find a way to make these work.
I actually think the hot pink would mix well with this festive print from 20x200. Love me some black and white photography. The artist, Jessica Craig-Martin, “first started to take party pictures for a very wealthy New York businessman who wanted a record of his jovial and vulgar drunken office parties. From this work [she] was hired by Anna Wintour to cover the New York party scene for Vogue.” I think this particular party image is so fun and would be an unexpected touch of cheekiness in an otherwise buttoned up abode.
I am seriously considering purchasing this silver tray from Wisteria. Gonna at least wait for a possible after-Christmas sale so I can save a dolla makes me holla, Honey Boo Boo child. If not, maybe for my bday! I think this would look great on my glass-and-lucite-combo coffee table topped with some coffee table books, a candle, and this little guy from Furbish (got him already).
I am getting a pair of hand-me-down blue tufted swivel chairs from my mom when she redoes the den, and I am already planning to floof them up with a couple of these Kelly Wearstler Bengal Bazaar pillows. I think they will go well with the Celerie Kemble Hot House Flowers pillows I currently have on my sofa. Pillows Anonymous, lifetime member.
I absolutely love my coffee table so this guy is probably not in my near future, but maybe I can find a spot for the coordinating side tables. I love the tribal design of these tables, and I especially love the price!
A handful of these tables were used as part of the decor at a wedding I went to last weekend, and I had to try really hard not to take
one all of them home as a party favor. I would have been just like Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids when she takes all the puppies from the wedding shower. “I took nine…”
On a trip to Target last week – where I managed to only by two things that weren’t on my list (!!!) – I found these very affordable beauties in the lamp department. The last thing I need is another lamp, but maybe he can come live with one of you. “Oh how you sparkle, and oh how you shine…”
I have exactly zero places where I could put this mirror, but I have always loved it, and it’s very affordable. Someday. I think it would look amazing in a beach house and/or against dark colored walls.
And last but definitely not least, something I will always want but will never actually bring myself to buy. No, I'm not talking about a teacup Boston Terrier.
I'm talking about an orange Hermes Avalon blanket! I have wanted it ever since I saw one in this incredible cabin in House Beautiful. Don’t even get me started on those cubby bunk beds at the end. I die. So yeah, if you have an orange Hermes throw that you are tossing out to redo your home please send it to me at 1234 Never Gonna Happen Road. A girl can dream.
What's something you've been wanting for your casa recently? Do you already have any of the above?
