Trumpet Chandeliers

Trump Chandelier
I took this photo at Pike & Rose in Rockville. 



These are Trumpet Chandeliers.  



Inside the Bell of the Trumpet are the light bulbs. 



It looks beautiful with the blue ceiling and the accent lights along the side. 



Believe it or not, this is the walkway between the garage and iPic theatre. 



Nicely done even without the trumpet music. 😉

Fashionistas Oh Mista

Armani
I found this gorgeous picture on Facebook. 



I believe this model on the runway is wearing Armani. 



The green dress is overflowing with beautiful ruffles, accented only by a black belt. 



As the model walks down the black and white runway, the whole outfit just seems to pop with soft texture and sheer eloquence.



I showed it to my daughter and she was hesitant about it, thinking that the green color made her look like a tree and surrounding foliage. 



I can see her point–maybe a nice sky blue or candy pink would be better…I think all three on stage would be amazing! 😉

The Geometric Desk

desk
Thought this desk was really nice. 



Professional, clean, hardwood, and very polished!



Not overly large, but I  liked the geometry of this thing, which made up for it.



The square draws on one side and the inverted cone on the other–very cool.



Great design, and seemingly good quality for home or office. 



Made in America? That would be especially nice (let’s bring the manufacturing home!)  😉

Best Animated Shoes

Dragon Shoe Husband Wife Shoe
These are some very cool shoes–different!



My daughter found these on Youtube 



They are made by this unboring shoe company in the U.K. called Irregular Choice.



Walking on the back of a dragon cannot be a bad thing. 



Stepping alternatively on the bride and groom–maybe an interesting perspective on the ins and outs of marriage. 



They also have a neat pair of Panda shoes. 



Check these out, I think you’ll look cool and really like it. 😉

Orange Spiral, Going Up

Spiral Staircase
What an absolutely gorgeous staircase.



A modern spiral with vivid orange and white. 



When I look at this, it’s almost as if the staircase is in motion, like a spinning drill bit. 



The person sitting to the right of the stairs seems like they will be swept away or crushed in the next spin of the stairs.



Next to the big windows, the incoming light hits the stairs and creates shadows that give it even more life. 



Excellent job by GW University in their new Science and Engineering building. 



You’d expect to see something like this in the Museum of Modern Art…it’s awesome! 😉

Teen Lounge Chair

Teen Chair
I took this photo of a cool teen lounge chair. 



Stretch out and relax or study on this oversized lounger. 



The fabric is emblazoned with:



– PEACE

– FREEDOM

– LOVE 

– FLIRT

– BEAST

– ROCK

– POWER

– EGO

– SHINE



I think this would look pretty good in a kids room.



How about you?

Very Blue Boots

Blue Boots
The kids hit the shoe store on the weekend.

 
Shoes and bags are always favorites.
 
Anyway, one tried on these cool blue boots. 
 
The other one took the photo. 
 
Yes, hip and stylish–alhough didn’t actually buy them–maybe just a little too much blue (almost like a blueberry)!
 
What’s next in the fashion world? 😉
