Inspiration Courtesy of Friends.....

this breathtaking room designed by my friend, Mona Thompson & her sister,
over in Arkansas @ Providence Design  HERE
if Mona's business was in Houston I would hang out in her shop!

the exquisite work of  McAlpine Booth & Fer

Rivercrest - Living charisma design

I think the Persian rug, above, is a Serapi.
stunning, isn't it?
the focal point of the entire room.

& below, that singular headboard for twin beds.
great idea, I think.

love the crockery jars, the chandeliers,
the chairs...well, I love everything about this room

back to the fashion shows soon.

Marc Jacobs's collection looks like athletic attire made by a designer
(1 of the top 3 in the world I think),
maybe it's homage to the Olympics or the Super Bowl?

Oscar de la Renta used LEATHER.
Yep, he did.

& this one, below, is my favorite ball gown of his collection,
kinda Spring-like even though it's Fall 2014.
I can see this on someone at the Academy Awards!
