Much like the Rolling Stones’ song referenced in the title, I love all noir inspired decor. With Halloween right around the corner, there’s no better time to indulge in a few of your favorite pieces of dark decor. Make no mistake, black is the new black! Here are a few of the items on my list of lust-worthy black objects:
1. Maarten Baas’ Smoke Chair
I must admit, I’m a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to hotels. My top three choices have always been Best Value Place, La Quinta or a Super 8. Listen people, it’s called being frugal. You’re just going to sleep there and pretty much gallivant the whole day anyway. Hmmm, very few people agrees with me, especially the ones that values comfort and safety. 🙂
My recent trip to Dallas with my mother & sister-in-law was a tad different, after all they booked it and I was in for a real treat…stayed at The Zaza! How can I be sooo lucky! A boutique hotel? For us? Yippee! The hotel is known for both exquisite service and design. When my sister-in-law ask the bellhop to show us their “suites,” he showed us not one, not two but four of their Magnificent Seven Suites.
We love everything miniature, and this tiny greenhouse terrarium is nothing short of adorable!
So pick out your favorite container and start custom building your own little indoor garden!
P.S. Just thought I’d say hi! I’m Maureen’s new intern, Rachel. I’m in my final year of my Architectural Interior Design degree at UT Austin, and can’t wait to graduate and start making my mark in the massive world of design! I grew up in a small town called George West, so Austin is my first “big city” to live in and I’m loving it. I’m so excited to be working on this blog with Maureen (with whom I share a love of all things gray/lime green, Rococo, and vintage) and can’t wait to see where it takes me. Nice to meet all of you! See you soon 🙂
Double barn doors, now we’re talking!
This is genius! I can look in the left mirror before I get in the tub, then walk to the right one after the bath. It’s like a before and after. I must admit this is kinda weird but the double mirrors are superb!
Double vanity mirrors, are you a fan?
