It’s been a minute since I’ve done a Friday Five, but I’m not going to get all stereotypical and apologize. Instead, let’s just get right to it, shall we?
I k now we’re having a boy, and we’re THRILLED, but rooms like this really make me wish I could girl it up in that little baby’s room. Maybe we’ll have a chance someday, and I’m definitely keeping this on file for that eventuality. From the vintage touches and color combos to THAT PINK CHANDELIER, this room is so amazing and cozy. In fact, their whole house is awesome, and you can catch a tour of it over on Houzz.
Lonny magazine made over this Brooklyn apartment with pieces from Restoration Hardware’s Big Style Small Spaces collection. I just love this room and this shot — the way the deer’s head looms over it all, the black pendant light, the abrupt modern leather chaise lounge set in front of the cozier, more cottage-y pieces. Just gorgeous.

This is another meticulously styled interior shot by Douglas Friedman Photography. I love the gallery wall, the black doors, the details in the bookcase and then that amazing spray of pink flowers.
I can just imagine being a kid and tearing into these to gradually reveal an assortment of cool little toys and candy pieces. By winding the crepe paper around and around while tucking the toys and candy into the strands as you go, you create this awesome little gift bomb that would delight any child — OK, or adult. I’m totally keeping this on file for when Bean is big enough to enjoy something like this.

OK, really. If this wasn’t $400 (only $80 for gold fill or sterling silver) I would totally have asked for it numero uno without a doubt for Christmas this year. It uses a series of long and round beads to spell out the name or text of your choice, all strung on a silk cord in the color of your choosing. This is such a cool and understated version of the name necklace, I can’t even stand it.
