birthday wish list

Tomorrow is my birthday.  I’m not too excited about it.  This year week has been mad stressful and I kind of forgot about it.  How lame is that?  Quick! I need to make some exciting plans!  But more importantly, if anyone needs to purchase me a last minuet gift, here are my recommendations….

{My Design} Art Deco Feminine Boudoir

I have a new client whom I’ve never met.  Him and his girlfriend are super glam, jet setters who are never in town.  My point of contact is their assistant/contractor/friend/pain in my ass.

My favorite elements are the powerful John Baldesarri print, the yellow headboard, and the grasscloth […]
