Bringing Bollywood Home

Bollywood Couple CushionBollywood Lady Cushion

It’s almost Diwali, the festival of light, and these kitschy pillows from Urban Barn are making me smile.  They are perfect for adding a bit of Bollywood glamour to any lounge space. Who doesn’t want Aishwariya Rai or Hrithik Roshan gracing their home?  The sequined pillows show the Bollywood superstars in their decadent costumes from the 2008 Jodhaa Akbar period film . Rekha who ruled Bollywood long before today’s ‘it’ girls is also not forgotten.

The jute rice bag cushions would most certainly amuse the farmers back home in India.

You’ve Got Mail

I’m in love with the pretty, new mailbox that was recently installed at my home, a modern cottage in the city.  I thought I would share a picture of it (above) as well as some other interesting mailbox ideas on the web. Homeowners sometimes overlook the small details which add to the charm and curb appeal of a property.  It’s important to complement a wall-mounted mailbox with an equally stylish doorbell and house numbers.

High-Heeled at Home

September’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar shows shoe queen Tamara Mellon, CEO and founder of Jimmy Choo sitting pretty high-in-the-sky of her Upper East side penthouse.   Mellon and her 8 year-old daughter Araminta are shown sharing shoes and some precious mother-daughter time.  Even with the dramatic decor of her stylish digs, the Choos steal the scene.

Penthouses with Panache

Delphine Krakoff of Pamplemousse Design is a lady I will be sure to call up when I purchase that penthouse in NYC.  I discovered her work on one of my favorite design blogs, Habitually Chic.  Enjoy the gorgeous pictures below from some of her projects in NYC.  I’m afraid though if my bathroom looked like the one below, I might never leave the house!

The powder room is one of the smallest and most-overlooked rooms by homeowners.  However, it leaves a lingering impression on your guests long after they have left.  Here are a few pictures to inspire you to make your own powder rooms fabulous with some chic fixtures, lighting and paint or wallpaper.
