Secret Italy

Masseria: The Italian Farmhouses of Puglia


First of all, our apologies for being a bit AWOL. The busiest real estate market since '06 has taken us by surprise, but we'll do a better job from here on out, promise. (And thanks to all of you who have been complaining that you miss us. We love complainers like that.) Last week in our only second of downtime we took a quick look at One Kings Lane and stumbled upon a book ... Read More

Richard Sapper's Masterpiece

The Tizio Lamp


A little over a year ago now we featured one of our favorite tastemakers in the world, BRAD DUNNING, who chatted with us about TEN LUST-WORTHY LAMPS. (Incidentally, for those of you who haven't seen the article, it's one of our favorites ever.) In that article, Brad cites one of the iconic lamps: The Tizio Lamp. Designed by Richard Sapper for Artemide in 1972, the Tizio is, well, looking a lot better than ... Read More

It's a Numbers Game

Alphabet & Numbers in the Home


Today's story all started with a photo. We were perusing through BACKEN GILLAM & KROEGER'S WEBSITE yet again - pretty much a daily occurrence for us until we get our own Backen Gillam house - and saw a gorgeous house with Robert Indiana's LOVE in its outdoor area. (See above photo.) Our minds started wandering. Was this, one of our favorite pieces of art anywhere, a gift from husband to wife? Was it just a ... Read More

Accessorize Chicly

Cavalier by Jay Jeffers


We like to think of ourselves as having pretty good taste. But since we're also modest, we admit there are a handful of people who manage to have better taste than we have. Jay Jeffers is most definitely one of those guys. The San Francisco-based designer has a whimsical style that manages to be both high-style and fun ... in other words, it doesn't take itself too seriously. We were thrilled when we stumbled ...

Be My Valentine (or at Least Get Me a Cool Card)

Sugar Paper


Is it February 15th yet? No? Okay, then we guess we should chat Valentine's cards ... and gorgeous paper products for the rest of us. There is no lack of beautiful cards, stationary, and paper out in the universe nowadays, but one of our go-to spots is still Los Angeles-based SUGAR PAPER . When they sent us an email this morning with a whole bunch of adorable Valentine's cards a light bulb went off. Why ... Read More

13 Ways to Make Your House Sexy

Alex's Tips on Having a Seductive House


One of our favorite interior designers once told us that single guys (we'll add "girls" too) should design a house that's "seductive." That advice has always stuck with us. And so when Alex was asked to write about a house tips of her choosing on the fabulous shopping site, she decided her article should revolve around creating a sexy environment. From music to lighting to temperature (Who likes taking off his ... Read More

Mirror, Mirror ... The Decorative Version

Decorative Mirrors


A few months ago we delved into the world of MIRRORED WALLS. While we loved the idea, some of our readers were a bit more gun-shy. And some, well, some just plain hated the thought of it. ("Looks like our grandma's house" was one comment.) While we still stand by our opinion that mirrored walls are decidedly chic, today we're presenting a get-your-toes-wet alternative option: Decorative mirrors. Decorative mirrors are some of our ...
