    Spotted: Leopard Tray & Dish

    This iconic leopard image was created by Waylande Gregory, who was – I just learned - one of the greatest modernists of the 20th century with work in the Metropolitan, The Whitney, and the Smithsonian. Above, a 6.5″ tray with 22K gold accents, $230. Below, a 4.25″ diameter small dish for $120.

    No Hang Ups

    Renting typically means no painting and no wallpaper. Which is why I’m gradually warming up to the idea of wall tapestries. Urban Outfitters has been stocking them for a few years now, but lately they seem to have slightly more sophisticated options. Like this Phula Garden Tapestry from Plum & Bow. It’s 56″ x 84″ and I love the deep navy and plum. $59 each.

    Lovely Layers

    I love everything about this room Trish Bygott and Nathan Crotty in Perth. The layering of animal skins and bright suzanis in pitch perfect.

    Stylish Halloween Round-Up

    I’m a big fan of multitasking. So I’m a big fan of Halloween decor that is classy enough to be used or displayed year round (depending on your tastes, of course). So here is a round up of some of my favorite spooky decor. Above, Halloween Medallion Plates, $31.95 at Williams Sonoma.

    Molded Resin Snake Box, $39.95 at Z Gallerie.

    Skull Vase, $42 at West Elm.

    Coasting Along

    Coasters are meant to stop condensation from putting rings on your furniture. Which makes me wonder why most coasters are made of plastic, glass or ceramic. All three materials end up stuck to the bottom of a dripping glass. Maybe it’s time for me to order some of these leather gem coasters from Urban Outfitters. $45 for the set of 4.
