Here's a sneak peak at some more of our decor favorites...

Diane is Home.

As if Mercedes Benz Fashion Week wasn't taking New York by storm already, Diane von Furstenberg launched her newDVF Home line in the midst of all excitements and still made a splash with her bold colors and intrepid patterns. Take a look at the incredible 'Ready to Wear Home' line, sold exclusively at Bloomingdales. 
Such a great window display.

Be mine, Valentine.

Whether you're getting cozy with your sweetheart or heading out for a night with the girls, Valentine's Day is about indulgence. What do we mean by that? Chocolate and cocktails!

Lamija Suljevic'

Check out this Swedish designer Lamija Suljevic's collection from Fall/Winter 2010. 

She's a fashion designer born in Bosnia but based in Stockholm - Sweden. The collection looks very tailored and has beautiful shapes.

Her main inspiration for the collection was her hometown, her past & her lost childhood. "It's important to me that my garments are something more than just a garment on a hanger. They should tell a story."

I'm loving this series from Michael David Adams!

It's killing me. The styling...the obscured faces...the tonal depth of the black and white good! The last one is especially striking, I can't stop looking at it.
