GASP!

Once in a while we all come across something that stuns us, and for me, those things are usually home goods or shoes. So today, I will share with you a few things that have made me almost burst into tears from viewing their fabulousness. Those tears are usually ones of sadness, mind you, because I can't afford most of these things, but at least they're still pretty to look at.

(psst..don't forget, all of the titles of the goods are clickable links, so click click away!)








I guess I should start with this amazing sofa from Anthropologie, since it inspired me to do this post. I was just browsing the site today, trying to avoid doing any work at my actual job, and almost fell out of my chair when I saw this. No, i'm totally serious. Pathetic, right? Behold!




Koro Light - $110


Everyone remembers how obsessed I am with festive lighting, right? Well I think this is MAGNIFICENT, especially since it's handmade. You can order one of these straight from Etsy, which is exactly what I'll being doing as soon as the white version is back in stock. How perfect and beautiful is this thing?! Oh, and if you'd like a smaller version, I think those are available for about half the price. :)





Dapple Light by Reiko Kaneko


Reiko Kaneko is a somewhat newer designer, but has a small collection of amazing pieces. And while this is yet, another light (I know I know), I had to post it. This piece was also at this years Milan Satellite exhibition.






Did Someone Say Drama Candleholder - $89

Normally I trash mystery catalogues that show up in my mailbox, however, when I got one from Wisteria I decided to flip through and see if they had anything worthwhile. Ooooh and they did they ever! I am really excited now, because they have something that I LOVE, and that I can actually afford! (ps - it's going in my bedroom)







Mirrors are another one of my small obsessions. Although, I'm not sure why I like them so much, I'm definitely not vain. I'm actually scared to look them sometimes! (botox, please?)









Yet another item I spotted in the Wisteria catalogue! Now this may not look like anything fancy, but I swear I almost peed my pants when I saw it. I've been in the process of turning our top floor loft into a workspace for Emil and I, and two of these would be PERFECT for the space. Hence, the gasp.






And that is all I have for you today! Whooo! I tried to remember if I've seen anything lately that was stunning, but you can't force the "gasp!" :)


On a side note, I will be making a very serious attempt to update more regularly. In the next few posts I'm hoping to include some photos of my own home, along with a few projects that I have done or am currently working on (I have a lot of those). There is also going to be another fashion edition (somewhat), so I can share some photos from a recent photoshoot I did with fellow Atlanta photographer Trent Chau. So look forward to that, if you will, and I'll be seeing you all real soon!

Great pieces and I am very intrigued to see what your own home looks like.

thanks lady! I've been compiling my home photos for almost a year now and hope to have a massive post about it in the near future.
