You know me – every once in a while I like to go dream decorating at Wisteria. I’m really drawn to their style. They are not fixed in one specific look. You could easily purchase a handful of items from Wisteria and no one would be the wiser. Not to mention, they keep prices reasonable and the quality of the merchandise high. That is a combination that leaves me satisfied and willing to come back over and over again.It should be no surprise that I absolutely L-O-V-E these glass nesting tables. I know, they look an awful lot like the cocktail table we have in the City apartment. Have a little faith in me you guys! It’s not like I plan to have them in the same house – let alone – get all matchy-matchy on you and put them in the same room. No never! I can’t help but think they’d look pretty fabulous in The Country House next to our cream color leather Eames recliner.One thing I have been shopping for is a new sofa. Since we’ve got the chesterfield at the apartment in the City, and I am repurposing the white sectional in the romper room – we’re shy on couches for the country house. Oh how I wish I could test-drive this streamlined sofa, or this scalloped arm, linen slip-covered one. It has me wondering: is there a Wisteria store anywhere around NYC? At this point, I have more cocktail tables than I need, but how handsome is this Military Inspired Coffee Table? Speaking of handsome… these well-priced tables with tailored skirts and beveled glass tops are calling my name. One of my least favorite things is to walk in a room and think “Oh look, it’s Pottery Barn ala 2007.” -or- “Clearly, this was one-stop-shopping from sofa to accessories. Y-A-W-N!” If you’re going to be a lazy decorator and fill up your place all at once, Wisteria is a good place to go. They’ve curated a look of eclecticism for you – and that is a very good thing.I have said this before, but it’s worth keeping in mind: take a moment (it could be six months or it could be four years!) to collect the decorator items for your home that you truly love -that suit you and your style to a T- your space will become an ideal reflection of your personality and a much happier place to be. It’s important to live with what you love. Right now, I can see myself loving many of these Wisteria pieces for a long time to come!
P.S. As luck would have it, my Twitter friend Jonathan Legate wrote an amazing post about Living With What You Love today. (He and I are often on the same page when chatting with one another!) Please pop by and check it out. It appears as though it will be a series going forward, so be certain to keep checking in as he updates his page.
In other news… I still feel like total garbage after the fall I took on my bike last weekend! However, I did manage to make it down into the City last night for a super fabulous interior design event. While I was there, I couldn’t help but notice that the City apartment needs *so* much work! It’s so drab. Once we come out of storage on August 18 – I hope I’ll have the opportunity to hang a few pieces of art and lay down a carpet or two.
