I love natural undulating designs from the Art Nouveau period. Here are some gorgeous wallpapers and motifs - some from the period and some inspired by the period. Aren't they dreamy? I wish I could afford to do this kind of filigree in my home. Someday!

Tired of IKEA? I'm not! Their furniture and decor is so versitle. You just have to have a little imagination and voila! Need inspiration? All the photos below were found at IKEA Beds a Flickr group with a fantastic pool of IKEA bed photos. You can also check out IKEA Hacker for all sorts of great ideas.

I recently inherited two interesting pieces of art due to a family move. They are by Leo Posilico, an artist I was not previously aware of. These two prints did not fit into my home right away, but now that they are on the walls, I'm really enjoying them. One is entitled, "Artists Have All the Fun" and depicts a janitor cleaning after a gallery viewing. The other is called "Uncontrollable Season" and is pictured at the bottom.
Tufted furniture is now on my list. I have never been drawn to it before. It always seemed reserved for my grandpa's old chair or glitzy Hollywood Regency styles. But now, I'm seeing beautiful, fresh tufted pieces used in the most unlikely places. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for something vintage.

No theme today. Just random, beautiful, lovely things I've collected and stashed away in a file for someday.
