Glass Sawhorse Desks

I love the desk below. I believe it is the Ballard Design Desk. Not sure. But I love the sawhorses and the glass. Truly beautiful. I am coveting this style right now.

Designer Amanda Nesbitt's office. She has that desk I love with the glass and the sawhorses.

I have a black leather wrapped top that I may put on sawhorses as a desk. Not sure. But I love the look.

Mirrored Tables

Mirrored tables. I am loving them. I love this mirrored entry table. My mother always had tons of mirrors in the house. She loved the way they reflected the light. I do too. I think I should add more mirrors. Not needing anymore tables, I am thinking about a few I have that have glass tops. Maybe switch them to mirror tops? Wouldn't be too expensive, just have the edges polished.

I also noticed that Target had mirrored tables for under $100.00, and Pier One had them too, but much more than $100.00.

What do you think?

Support Pole -- Johnny Pole

I can't remember where I found the great photo below. But I love how they made a support beam and pole a major fixture in the home. I have a Johnny, (support) pole in my family room and it doesn't look quite as grand. I am looking for ways to jazz it up. Any suggestions?

My support pole, that can't be moved, and clear story windows above, that are old and ugly, but now open to let in the light. But, what to do to make this pole not look like a stripper pole. Oh, and on a budget, well, no budget, just no money. So as cheap as possible.
Any suggestions?

Sarah Richardson - Nursery Show

I love Sarah Richardson Design. Oh, and Design Inc. etc..... All her shows. So I was tickled when I ran across her nursery and master bedroom show the other day under the Design Inc. A great show, that not only shows her husband but other Design Inc. staff. Oh, and who can forget the great design. Even if my daughter is grown up and in college, I still love some of the stuff in the nursery. The couch and chair are wonderful. I also love her use of all tones of cream, white, in her bedroom. I would try it, but not sure if the hubs could keep it clean. Enjoy.

Master Suite.

Nursery with changing table she designed. I love the mix of white furniture and dark furniture.

Who would not covet that couch? Anywhere in a home. Wonderful.

So cute the nursery is. The chair is actually a rocking and swivel chair. You can put any chair base on the bottom of a chair as long as it has a skirt, (it will cost you though). What a great idea in a multi-purpose room, people could swivel to talk to one another.
