    Jamie Hayon is brilliant; the first wallpaper is “Woods” by Cole & Son, and the bottom, while I’ve seen numerous times, can not, for the life of me, remember . . . and your new pieces are amazing, especially the pink!

    I just stumbled on your blog last week and have fallen in love! I currently live in Miami and am moving back to New England in about a month. We just bought our first home. Where can I buy these amazing pieces?

    there is something irresistible about pink! of course it’s the most expensive at close to $4000! Of course you can make one yourself with a trip to the flea and a little paint!

    Hi Claudia! I want to do a wedding in that restaurant! Can you imagine the possibilities?!!! And, I love that green chest of drawers. It would so look good in my house!

    Okay, I adore the pink. However, the aqua/teal/blue buffet piece is right up my alley. I so need it for my Dining Room!

    Great Post:)

    Dear Claudia,
    Can’t believe I missed this post! I was at my moms. MIKE IS YOUR BUD??
    I’ve been trying to get to Bodega for months! NOW I must go! When I went on a Wednesday afternoon in Feb or Mar it was closed. :-( It’s tinsy~tinsy. About 15 mins from where we live. I LOVED everything when I peeked through the window. I’m going!
    Thanks for promoting the Bodega boutique!

    Maybe you found the answer by now, but the wallpaper is from Louise Body. I love it.

    From you?
