DETAILS: NEW ADDITIONS

I am so happy many of you are as interested as I am in not only fashion design but interior design as well! Because now I can share my second biggest obsession with you!
In my last video I gave you a small peek into my living room and though it isn't anywhere near finished, I still thought I would share some of my notable finds along the way. 
...
I have an extra large coffee table I use for a workspace, dining table, desk and coffee table. 
My apartment is a "Jr. one bedroom", meaning its lacking a dining area and therefore I decided on a large multifunctional coffee table. 
I displayed some pretty things that are also functional. 
Black lacquer Chinese style box: Keeps finished jewelry orders ready to be packaged and shipped. Jonathan Adler's adorable elephant christmas ornament sits atop...(which i will be leaving out year round)... Thank you mommy! 
Bottega Louie tart box: Holds note pads, pens and other small items I use regularly.
Light blue retro ash tray: Found at a flea market for a few dollars. (I don't smoke but it's a pretty piece). Designer matches and pink sea urchin shells from The Royal Hawaiian hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii inside. 
Long silver pinged tray: Purchased from Walmart. Holds Trina Turk coasters and a pretty note pad.
MacBook Pro: One of my most beloved and trusty pieces. Ever. 
My new white sheepskin rug. 
I found this suppppppper fluffy and lush rug at Marshalls for around $25. I've seen similar ones at Ikea but this one is much better quality. 
 This weekend I went to various garage and estate sales with my mom.
I found these little gems:
A set of 5 wicker accented juice glasses from the 1970's for $5.
A set of 8 mini glass lunch/ snack plates with matching tea cups for $10.    
A Tiffany blue and gold dessert tray that will be used to store and display jewelry. 
*I also found two barstools for $5 each which I am going to be spray painting silver...Photos to come!
I showed you my little table find from a thrift store in my last video. I decided to make its home as a side table next to my couch, $3. 
I love it!

  9. I'm a new subscriber to your youtube channel and also have been reading your past blog entries and I just LOVE your style. You're such an inspiration for me and I love that because I've been stuck in such a rut lately.

    And I also must say your jewelry is something I've been drooling over. I've been slipping my boyfriend hints for christmas.

  17. I adore your style. <3 I'll be getting my own apartment soon, and I can tell you now... I'm so inspired by your recent posts - I cannot wait to decorate it. I was planning on hiring a decorater, or some kind of a "professional" help, but this seems much more fun! Pardon my bad English. ^^ Greetings from Europe. <3 xoxo
