What I Love Wednesday: Designer’s Own Dining Rooms

First of all, thank you all SO much for the emails yesterday about my personal life right now. I love sharing with you and you are all so supportive. I especially love so many of you who have become real friends over the years and tell me about your lives, too. I am truly blessed and grateful.

Next, I want to show you 25 designer’s own dining rooms (sources here). There is some real inspiration here:

And finally, here is a crazy list of stuff I have bought and love. It’s very random, but they are all things I love and many make great gifts.

The spacing is crazy and I can’t fix it, so bear with me please. Click any image to view:

.1.  Shearling insoles so all shoes feel like Uggs:

2. Custom doormat:.

.

3. I just used this as a TV console in a client’s house and it’s affordable and beautiful:

.

4. Half off Coach bags that I think rival any highest end designer for style and quality:

.

5. This cutest feather bag:

.

6. Star jewelry.

 .

7. And hair pins:

.

8. These shoes:

9. Perfect totes:
 

.

10. A few unique clothing pieces:
   

.

11. Perfect winter white sunglasses. This is the best shape for me and I like them better than my designer ones:

.

12. I’ve used these many times (most recently in a new project) and they are beautiful:

.

13. This is my favorite day cream. I think it’s like La Mer but a bit less money:

.

14. I used this on my trip and it was the perfect size and really pretty:

.

15. I got this photo printer for Ellie last year and it’s so much fun to print photos right away. They are stickers too, which she loves, and puts them all over her laptop:

.

16. I used these Star Wars patent drawings in a boy’s room and he loves them. I wish I know about them when Bobby was little:

.

17. This and one other by Origins (I can’t remember the name and can’t find it anymore) are the only ones I’ve ever used that actually really work. They take my tension head aches away in minutes. I guess it’ like aromatherapy but it also tingles and it really helps me:

.

18. I have bought 100 milk frothers in my life. I always break them. This is my most recent, and works well and has lasted:

.

19. I just got these light saber chopsticks for some little boys in my life and I know they are going to eat everything with them:

.

20. These are the sheets on every bed in my house right now. It used to be that you had to spend hundreds on good sheets. I never ever thought $25 sheets would be my favorite, but they really are. I wanted to give some to Bobby for his college bed but their beds are a custom size (crazy right?)

.

21. Ok, this is AMAZING. The photos don’t do it justice. It’s such a simple concept, but it’s awesome. It’s a cinch bag that I use for makeup so that I can see everything at once without having to empty the whole pouch. It has changed my life, I swear. You need this:

.

22. And they make it in a travel size for toys or clothes or whatever. It’s so much easier to pack stuff. Bobby is getting one for Christmas because it will be awesome when he comes home for the weekend and doesn’t have time to pack properly (which he has never done anyway):
