Rock of Love

New Jersey Housewife Teresa Guidice might have been gifted a humongous yellow diamond for her 10 yr Anniversary as seen on the show Monday night, but any of these beautiful rocks on lucite would make the Geo-Geek in me’s heart pitter-patter.  Artist Brenda Houston’s pieces are available today on One King’s Lane.

I get pretty excited when I see a new product email from Wisteria in my in box.  Wisteria is probably my favorite catalog, and lately they have really been delivering!  This black & white dhurrie  is calling my name. 

I’d pair it with a funky-yet-streamlined slipcovered sofa.

This pair of marble tables would be used in lieu of a cocktail table.


I’m on a BIG orange kick right now, so I’d add a pair of these, “Baxter,” club chairs from Pieces.

Always a touch of animal print…Needlepoint Throw Pillow



A cluster of Pagoda Chandeliers would look great overhead.

As for the accessories…

Vintage 1960’s decanter


Assorted Accessories from Ms. Wearstler

White Faux Silk Tafetta Drapes would line the walls and windows

This stunner from artist Amanda Talley would be the finishing touch!
