Your Favorites: The Goods

First, I wanted to let you know I am over at The Vault Files today sharing whats in my makeup bag. Hope you will check it out! And now today, I have another installment of "Your Favorites". Alissa from The Goods is here sharing her gorgeous California home. Alissa is a very talented interior designer and I've had so much fun following along with her blog for the past 2 years! I immediately felt in love with her house after seeing she used my all time favorite pattern, Asuka, for her bedroom wallpaper. So insanely gorgeous!! I love all of the pattern and color in her beautiful place. So here it is...

*************************************

Favorite Room



My favorite room is my den. It's the room that we spend most of our time in - we watch tv in here, I sometimes work in here {I'm writing this from the den as we speak!} As a designer, I love using my home as a testing ground for my design ideas. In this room I never set out with a specific design plan - the room just came together easily with things I loved.


Favorite Textile



My favorite textile is this LOVE pillow {from Urban Outfitters.} It lives in my favorite room - my den! I love the pillow so much it has lived in lots of different rooms - my bedroom, my office - but it recently took up permanent residence in the den. The bright color and graphic print just make me smile.


Favorite Piece of Art


I've admired Carter Kustera's silhouette art at Barney's and Jonathan Adler - so when a Groupon popped up to have my own custom work of his, I had to jump at the chance! We sent him photos of ourselves in profile view, gave him a witty comment about ourselves, and voila! a few weeks later we had our own masterpieces. They hang in our bedroom bringing in a nice pop of color.

Favorite Piece of Furniture


My bed! I fell in love with the color combo of gold + navy for my bedroom. First I picked out the gold and cream wallpaper from Osborne and Little, and then had this bed made at a LA store called Room Service. I love the shape of the headboard, the rich navy blue headboard, the button tufting. I took this photo on my iPhone the day it was delivered. I was so happy I was jumping up and down for joy!

Favorite Miscellaneous Item



My favorite miscellaneous item is the ceiling in my office {does that count as an item?!} I fell in love with the idea of putting star wallpaper on the ceiling, but couldn't find the right color combo to work in my house. So I called up the decorative painters I work with and they meticulously painted my ceiling using a stencil they made. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

  32. Designer clothing now has become a prominent choice in the wish list of lifestyle dressing. When it comes to Designer Clothing in India, one has the wonderful blend of cultural essence of India with the modernity of global fashion. The best of Indian designers could be one’s best bet to become cynosure of all eyes. Amazing cuts and finishing in these designer clothes have made India such a huge hit in world fashion.
