Hello dear readers! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. In the post below, I introduced you to designer J Segal and the beautiful bags he makes. Jeff is multi-talented, everything he touches turns to gold. Today, I'd like to show you an example of his hand made furniture.
The iLean desk! The most beautiful desk ever! Perfect in its geometry and balance, it's actually two pieces. This desk would look fabulous in a mid-century, retro or industrial environment.
I would love to see it paired with a Charlotte Perriand bookcase. I need to win the lottery so I can buy it. I am obsessed! And dig that ikebana vase, I need that too. Humans make really beautiful things, don't they?
Design fans, stay tuned for my year end review which will include the most beautiful furniture ever designed. This piece, of course, makes the list.

The other news I have for you is that I am moving to a cute apartment in Cleveland next week. Yep. Cleveland, my old hometown. Strange circumstance has led me back to Cleveland via Denver, lol. Lots more about Denver in subsequent posts and in my book.
Here's a couple of previews of the new apartment. It's small and has great character, including wood floors! I can't wait to get in there! I have many ideas on decorating, but it will have to evolve slowly, will, of course, be simple and include a ton of pink! This is it, dear friends, this is my retirement home. I am never moving again. Hooray!
The place is quiet, clean, has beautiful windows and is just so.... me. My personal space is very important to me. Without it, I cannot maintain equilibrium. I hope you will follow along as I make this place my home.

Betsey Johnson's pink apartment (see previous post here). Here is an old place of hers, proving that she's always loved pink, and that she and I are sisters. I've always loved pink and I could easily live here. I love me a pink, industrial loft and I love minimalism.
It might surprise you that this is my favorite bedroom of 2013, given my love for all things pink. But here it is, the lovely bedroom designed by Jo of Desire to Inspire. You've already seen the lovely bedroom of Jenna Lyons, a million times in the blogosphere.
Drool. Dig that white, textured paining on the orange wall. Dig the purple chairs, the chandy and those metallic bowls. Apartment Therapy Color Contest, can't remember the year. Shoulda won.
ya'll know how to do a Google image search, right? I have all links to artists, if needed. I love to give artists credit. if you are the artist, and want proper crediting please contact me.
