Necessary Acquisition Covet

If you don't know about Kelly Wearstler, you need to. A multi-talented scion of all things beautiful, Kelly has made a name for herself with her impeccable sense of style. Not only does she have one of the most discerning eyes in interior design, a wicked sense of personal style, and a debut ready to wear collection launching at Bergdorf Goodman's - it's her home collection that, for me, is dazzling perfection. My personal favorite piece in her collection is the pair of petite golden-hued legs. Chic, gorgeous and modern, this playful sculpture harmoniously pulls the collection together, and at a mere 6'' high, is an eye catching addition to your tabletop.

The brass legs, priced at $1,498.00 and the entire collection can be viewed on the 7th floor of Bergdorf Goodman.

Necessary Acquisition Covet

As someone who is in the midst of redesigning my space, I'm constantly searching for the perfect piece - the quintessential design detail that will bring each room together. I think I've found it in Bleu Nature's acrylic and wood Nilleq stool. Absolutely stunning as a stand-alone piece, these stools marry contemporary chic and nature at its purest and most divine. Suspended in acrylic, exquisite beach-worn driftwood serenely hibernates creating astonishingly beautiful, striking, perfection.

The entire Bleu Nature acrylic collection can be viewed here. I am also completely smitten with the Kisimi stool. Decisions, decisions, darlings...

The Nilleq Stool is available at Barney's for $5,998.00.

Necessary Acquisition Covet

Besides being the mecca of all that is fabulous and decadent, Bergdorf Goodman is now the home of the US debut of Jean Boggio for Franz. Best known as a jewelry designer in France, Jean is an incredible talent - chic and detailed, his pieces are witty, decorative and, ultimately, truly wearable art. Completely transforming the already amazing 7th floor, this installation has captured the true essence of luxury living. Gleaming lacquers and brightly hued porcelains with hints of art nouveau and French Polynesia come together in stunning wonder. Instantly and utterly smitten, I cannot decide which piece needs to come home with me.

This breathtaking installation, only through November 1st, is exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman

Whimsy keeps you light and lovely - a requirement for a luxurious life. Take this darling little Calourette Rabbit Ring in white enamel - a perfect piece to brighten and lighten your right hand. Delicate and sweet, this wee bunny designed by French designer Marianne Rautureau, is a precious addition to your jewelry collection. At a mere $60.00, she's sure to hop right into your heart and onto your hand.

Beauty Covet

Over the last five years I've pretty much been a devotee to La Mer, from their eye creme to their face moisturizer to their cleansing gel and even the lip balm - I loved it all. Pampering myself each day, I used it religiously. It was a decadent addition to my skin care regime. Lately though, over the past few months, I felt as if my skin wasn't at its best - even with oxygen facials and specialized treatments, SPF and an Evian mineral water mister (a must poolside), something was amiss. So with a little research and a lot of trial and error, I landed on Olay Regenerist, and I have to say I'm thrilled! My skin is incredible - the texture has completely changed and is back to being soft, supple and radiant. I highly recommend it to all of you - you won't be disappointed. It will truly transform your skin.

Personally, I'm using the Micro Sculpting Cream, the Night Recovery Cream, the Regenerating Serum and the Eye Lifting Serum.

Available at
Olay Regenerist and at most drug stores

Reclining Covet

With a new creative direction in place and massive redesigns to their collection and artistic aesthetic, Restoration Hardware has reintroduced themselves in a most modern manner. If I can pick one piece to personify their design sense it would be the Oviedo Chaise. Perfectly styled with mid-century modern lines, this rugged and slightly distressed leather chaise is beyond comfortable - literally absorbing you into its curved bolsters. Classically beautiful yet industrial lines make this a stylishly artistic addition to your living room. I know it will mine.

Have you ever noticed how soft pink light bulbs are like magic to a room - well more than the most expensive interior designer on your speed dial. A matter of balance and wit, lighting can transform your room, your complexion and your mood in the most wondrous way. I am heading for an all out swoon with this Bespoke Chanel Silk Scarf Chandelier by designer Suzan Fellman. She has captured modern elegance by way of this opulent trinket - a daring and beautiful bauble to bring your room to life. A one of a kind treasure, draped with genuine pearls and vintage beads, this petite chandelier is a perfect compliment to any room.
