Daily Covet: Raspberry High Arch Headboard

You really can’t look through a decor magazine without seeing one piece of major pop.  And what better piece to pop than your headboard – the focal point of your bedroom?

I’m loving this amazing rasberry, velvet headboard with nailhead trim.  It reminds me of old Hollywood or some swanky boutique hotel.  Either way, I’m envisioning it against my tiffany blue bedroom walls.

Now that’s a POP!

Daily Covet: Tranquility in the form of a chair.

Yep, another covet for today… who knows?  Maybe this will become the “hourly covet!”  Eh, probably not…

But I had to post because I have this desire to redecorate… or decorate… or purge… and add.  You would think I was nesting.  I can assure you, I’m not.  However, I am looking for some space to call my own.  Some space to work, to be inspired, to be alone mostly.

When I saw this chair at Crate & Barrel, I started envisioning a small place in a my room with an antique writing table (which I already own) and my new chair.  My bedroom is already Tiffany blue, white and a hint of navy in my asian-inspired lamps.  So why not throw in this crisp white chair, juxtaposed with a very modern navy frame?

The combination of blue and crisp white is so appealing, that it has practically taken over my house.  I may want to consider something hot pink, red or bright green… but not today.

Weekly Covet is now the daily covet…

Blog Stats don’t lie.  Every week when I feature my “Weekly Covet,” the page views spike.  Now, before you go thinking that I’m manipulating y’all by

Bernhardt Market Street Armoire, $3330

posting a daily covet purely for page views, know this:  I love “Wanting!”  I’m actually dying to do this more often, so here it goes:

I live in a great little home in a great little neighborhood.  My house was built in 1925 and boasts sturdy oak floors, leaded glass, hammered metal door knobs and fixtures and more character than you can shake a stick at.  However, as anyone who lives in an old home knows, we are seriously lacking a few things such as a double (or triple) car garage, multiple bathrooms on the second floor and probably the most important for a lifelong covet’er of things – closet space.

While our bedrooms are spacious, the master boasts two small glorified coat closets.  Not super handy for someone who hasn’t stopped buying or saving shoes since 1992.  So my covet du jour is the most beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, amazing piece of furniture.  My favorite item is the armoire, just one piece of  an exquisite bedroom set and I actually want each and every piece of it!
