Missoni Home Collection

Recently Missoni opened a new flagship store at North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.  I drive by all the time as it is on the way to my po box. The first time I saw the exterior I was in awe of the architectural siding of the building, very textural.  It was also featured in the May issue of Elle Decor.
I even took a picture of it from the car one day.
The Beverly Hills store also carries the Missoni Home Collection along with their fashion line.
{and last year, I featured a blog post about the Hotel Missoni}

Serena & Lily Bazaar

If you haven't already visited the Serena & Lily website, then you are certainly missing out on a great collection of bedding, furniture, decor, accessories, gifts, paint, fabric and more.  They also have a more eclectic collection of furnishings called Bazaar.  The online Bazaar is a rotating collection of  finds found from flea markets, estate sales, and hidden shops around the world.  It's worth checking back often for new items but if there's something you like, better grab it, as it can go fast.
Serena & Lily Bazaar also has art, rugs, and fun finds.  Check back for more.

Late Night Window Shopping

Who enjoys a little late night window shopping?
The other night I went for dinner in Brentwood and after dinner decided to window shop at Grace Home Furnishings (which is right next door to where I was having dinner).  It's always kind of fun to window shop. I love seeing inspiring displays of furniture and accessories.  So here's a little glimpse into the latest window displays at Grace Home Furnishings (not my best photography, but these were taken using my phone after a few too many glasses of wine).
On a side note, I have finally joined Twitter.  If you would like to follow me I will be posting my latest Material Girl Blog posts in addition to other adventures around town & project related tweets.
{And check out the lovely Twitter page that Maison21 designed for me! I love it!}
