I am head over heels for these custom created vintage cake plates by Olivia Rae in Charleston, South Carolina. A student at the College of Charleston, Olivia also works at a cupcake shop and is well, just plain adorable. Below is the header of her BLOG—I mean really, could it be cuter? I have a feeling you’ll be smitten.
The queen of Italian cinema, that is. So we all know Sophia Loren is stunning (thank you spaghetti), but would you please look past her for just one moment to the extravagant nail-trimmed headboard? It looks like tufted silk or something equally luxurious and the shape is positively regal. I’m saving this photograph in my design archives—wouldn’t it be fun and dramatic for a little girl’s bedroom?

I love this room. Love the bold asymmetrical stripes on the traditional Portuguese chairs. The neutral palette with the busy carpet. The art hung and the art cooly leaning against the wall. The eclectic mix of modern and antiques. Did I mention it’s in a private apartment in Buenos Aires? Do you remember it? God I miss Domino.
