SHOPPING THERAPY WITH SOME GLITZ

 
I LOVE shopping , but must be in the mood to do so. I needed to get three last minutes gifts, and I knew I'd find what I was looking for at my location of desire. I needed a major fix of this joint, I was going through withdrawals mind you. One of my guilty pleasures is a shop in King of Prussia, an interior design company .....Aruhaus. Have you been????? Good luck getting me out of there!!!!! I could drop a fortune in there and part of someone else's too. I can never just walk pass it, it always beckons me like the poor sailors trying to avoid the sirens off a Greek Isle. Just take a peek......
 
 
First, I love how the store in laid out, very free flowing ,and the room set ups are stunning, love the colors they use ...gives me some great ideas. They also have phenomenal choices of lighting....
 
 
 
Ohhhhhhhh, above the bed perhaps????
 
 
Wait, sparkling barware alert!!!!!!!
 
 
Peek -a -boo.....
 
How cool is this???? Have so many books, but no more room on the shelves? Very cool way to still have them and display them, and their still easy to get to.
 
 Dear Santa, I  have tried my hardest to behave and stay out of too much trouble this year, but surely you don't expect miracles. I would just love to see this eggplant velvet chair under the tree come Christmas morn. I 'd be forever in your debit. Love-the Mistress.
 
Rub it nice and hard, and make a wish.......
 
 
What a cute place setting for a garden party......
 
I generally tend to get a major hard on for side chairs...this one is FABULOUS!
 
Cock anyone?
 
Looks like I was ahead of the curve with the deer head trend......
 
I love these deer heads so much, and majorly in love with the harlequin wall treatment, so much so, I am completing a major redo of the boudoir for spring. Thinking of one wall with the harlequins and in similar colors......
 
of course, I also love this color, but don't know, I change my mind quicker than my men.
 
It was another successful trip, I got my three gifts, plus some!!!! They put their purchases in a re-useable large canvas burlap bag, how cool is that? Many thanks to Gregory for allowing me to snap my pictures!!!!
Did you guys see anything to flip your fancy???

  6. Side chairs are one of my favorite things. As for getting in the mood for shopping... you'd be shocked what $40 in gift cards can do to lift someone's mood.

  7. I use Aurhaus alot for my clients. They always seem to have just the right amount of basic, but always have choc, clean lined furniture and unusual odd and ends. I too love those deer heads and that harlequin wall! BTW- YOU LOOK BUFF IN THE MIRROR! I see you

  14. I will admit, you got good taste. But the one chandelier, perhaps above the bed. Don't you already swing from enough in the boudoir?
