Shop til you drop

The last two weeks of my life have been a constant shopping blur. Between Christmas and trying to get things for my clients before the holidays, I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off!

I found this faux stingray leather, pearl gray channel tufted headboard that I wanted for myself but it is a king. Way too big for my room, but perfect for my French Quarter client's modern master bedroom...



And my other friend/client was inspired by the Pedro Friedeberg hand chairs in the Ashley Stark apartment from Elle Decor and asked me to get a price on one for her. Side note: when I lived in Mexico (where Pedro is from) in the late 90's, I worked at a store that sold these for 2k. No one wanted them then, and today when I called Craig Van den Brulle in New York for a price, I was told $30,000 NET! Shocker!

Also found these twin beds in the back of an antique store and they will be perfect painted in a french blue chalk paint for the back guest house of another client...score! Can't wait to see them painted...

Last but not least I picked up this suzani for myself. It is not the style that I am doing now, but when you see a steal that is big and gorgeous and cheap you just grab it, right??

Will store it away to one day make a headboard, or a chair, or a bench seat on a sofa, or pillows.... Happy shopping, friends!

I would love to have one of those chairs myself, but at $30,000, I don't think that's going to happen! Sigh...

I wish my week looked a bit more like yours!

These are all fantastic of course! Score on the bedspread! Love your ideas for your clients -- so much so it makes me sad if you don't do design anymore.
