Have a Seat

Oh I love sleek furniture designs… i fell for the Karim Rashid Veuve Clicquot Loveseat. There’s something about it's infinite curves, yet a nice separation of space (with a bottle of bubbly as the separating) thats enticing, and the photography for the piece is beautiful and surreal. Want to have a seat?

My special birthday

I feel so loved! My wonderful David had a beautiful, custom cake made just for me! He knows me so well it's crazy -it's a Tiffany's blue box cake. I absolutely LOVE Tiffany & Co. Not simply because of the blue box itself, it's color or it's reference to my very favorite actress, but because of the feeling/atmosphere and special-ness of the store and the beautiful jewelry they sell. On top of that, he bought me beautiful, black patent Michael Kors flats (very comfortable) and a sophisticated gradient gray patent Nine West Handbag with huge buttons....

I am going to send a nice thank you card to the talented Marga from Ideastream, who expertly made my cake...which I want to eat, but don't want to destroy ;)

Hugh Newell Jacobsen


The eloquence in the language of architecture is measured by how a building is put together. The joining of materials in a manner that retains the integrity of each part, while assigning a function compatible and advantageous to its nature, has always been a measure of "seriousness" in architecture. "The quality of the light upon that particular area of earth is always unique and determines the path the architecture will take. I endeavor to design buildings that belong, make the site look better and, hopefully, never shout. The order established by the program, the site and the budget produces architecture. Because of this, I have never designed two buildings alike." -Hugh Newell Jacobsen
