restraunt restroom envy…

Pssst…hey lady…want to know where the best restaurant bathroom is? It’s smack dab in the middle of Scottsdale, Arizona!!! I discovered this gem while vacationing with the family last week, and I knew I just had to share it with you. I think any restaurant–like the Renegade Canteen–that takes this much care and consideration for its girlie customers should get a smooch or two (they also make the best peppercorn steak I’ve EVER eaten)!

The walls were papered in a gorgeous tone-on-tone damask pattern. When I spotted this mirror, I nearly swooned! Then I turned and saw this magnificent hammered steel sink.

Looked behind me and spotted this little lovely!!! Keep in mind, this is all in ONE bathroom!!! ONE. It’s almost too much for a girl to handle…

Fine print: I know these pictures bite lemons, but what’s a girl with a little purse camera and dark lighting to do? The kids kept rolling their eyes and pleading with me not to bring the “big embarrassing” camera with me!!!

Mental note: Must travel alone.

dear grey you make me happy…

Who knew that grey could be so bright and airy? I just came across these stunning rooms on two beautiful blogs and I just had to share them with you. The first two are from Decor Happy, a blog I’m sure to follow now that I’ve found it.

I absolutely adore this bathroom. It just screams “serene” (yeah, yeah an oxymoron…I couldn’t help it). Me likey, me want!

Here…let me give you a hanky, ’cause I know you’re weeping, like me, at the very sight of this exquisite kitchen. I know my kitchen won’t look like this until my kids move out, though. Some how, some way, there WOULD be spaghetti sauce on that window covering. It defies all logic, but it happens at my house!!!

This image is from Good Measure, another fabulous blog that I will be following. I just love the grey island table and the black lantern light fixture–gorgeous.

wowie zowie faucet…

This is one of the coolest faucets I’ve ever seen. Patricia Gray featured it on her blog in February. I just wish I had come up with the concept. I’d be sitting beside an infinity pool in St. Lucia while typing this post and counting my money!

more movie decor…

I have it on very good authority, Kim the back-stabbing-Haiti-relief-pink-toy-car-auction-out-bidder, that the movie Blind Side features my OSO storage jars! Apparently, Sandra Bullock‘s character has two of them on her dressing room table. Way to go Sandra…impeccable taste…I’ve always thought that you and I could be best friends…we both love Jessie’s smouldering bad-boy looks…we both have supernatural comic timing…we both deserve an Oscar…call me.
