I stumbled upon this handy glossary while dinking around on the Williams Sonoma Home website. I have a feeling even the most professional of professionals stumble on their terminology from time to time. Thank you, WS Home!

That Martha! You almost forget she served time in the big house! Enjoy some eye candy courtesy of Martha Stewart and her line for Bernhardt.

These colorful throw pillows are calling my name!

I just had to post this Mary McGee Dining Room I saw here because I think it is perfection. Chocolate walls, gold mirror, linen, velvet, silk, and peonies, what’s not to love??

Upon learning that the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show was in Chicago I immediately started thinking about all the great Chicago shops I wanted to try to squeeze in (as if the show and parties wouldn’t keep me busy enough) and then it hit me, Jayson Home & Garden is in Chicago! I adore their website and was determined to get there no matter what! Three phone calls for directions (everyone was very helpful), one seedy city bus and one wobbly train ride later and I had actually made it. It is located in what seemed to be a very young, urban, hip part of Chicago- Lincoln Park. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Oh, and p.s. the CB2 is also in the neighborhood.

The eye candy that greets you at the front door… zebras, and greek key, and orchids oh my!

Room Service Home is a favorite of the Material Girls, we just love that it’s called a “catalog boutique.” Here are some of our favorite pieces…

We love this bamboo bar, or maybe it’s just the great geometric yellow/white wallpaper in the background…
Chair with Asian Flair!

The Marble Farmhouse table would look great in a kitchen, behind a sofa, or as a desk!

The Abalone Mirror is sure to bring out your inner Boca Raton!

Even the most traditional rooms could use a little geometric.

This side table would compliment a crisp linen slipcovered sofa quite nicely.

Bombay table, on sale now!

These pillows are perfect for summer.

Hollywood Glam lamp.

Custom coasters would make a great gift for your friend who loves to entertain.

The “Desktop Decision Maker” would add humor to any stodgy office.
