A new series on La Dolce Vita

Did you know we are contributors on one of our favorite design blogs now? Our series “Wrapped Up” on La Dolce Vita started last month with a post on personalized gifts. This month we are talking green gift giving. One of our favorite ideas is to use a tea towel to wrap a gift providing two gifts in one! The pattern on these dotted ones basically looks like wrapping paper, or what if you wrapped a cookbook in this one so the words “Life is Delicious” are displayed across the front? Check out the blog post on La Dolce Vita here for more green gift giving ideas!

Get the Look: Lonny

I have always loved this well collected room from Lonny’s May 2010 issue. It was only natural that it inspire a “Get the Look” using the lucite chest from Blueprint Modern. I replaced the chevron rug with a Moroccan shag rug that is a little more on trend today, but there is a great chevron rug available here if you prefer that look. All other sources are listed below.
