At any rate, I decided the other day that I HAD TO have this Petite Parrot glass for my bathroom:
and this Wild Woodland tree stump vase (this one no longer available) for my living room...
I allowed myself the small purchase. And then I allowed myself to peruse the portion of the website that is so far from my budget, but über lust worthy: furniture. From there, I began to piece together a living room I could never afford (at least not until I become a wealthy artist with shows across the country:).
I am by no means a designer, but I do love to decorate given I'm an extremely visual person. It's probably only natural that artists look at their homes as blank canvases, but on top of that innate desire of mine, I grew up with an incredibly talented builder/designer father who has created some of the most gorgeous buildings I've ever seen from the nuts and bolts to the interior design. He's truly a master artist. And my (adoptive) mom was an interior designer. Needless to say, our house was out of control decorated (I'm going to try to dig up some photos later). And I'm left aching for the day when I own my first home and can let myself loose on the blank canvas.
Here's what I'm lusting after for my fictitious Anthropologie living room:
Standing Medallion Mirror (for the mantel? Love.)
Perch Barstool (not for the living room, but to use in front of my easel that would be on the patio outside the french doors of the living room overlooking my backyard full of trees and gardens, sigh).
