I absolutely need this shower curtain! I think I got the idea when Carrie (Bradshaw…who else?) and Berger were at Bed, Bath & Beyond in Season 5 of Sex and the City. I love anything to do New York City, and this chic shower curtain brings a bit of metropolitan glamour into any bathroom. Purchase here.

Since I’m aching to do a classic, frilly, true “Glamour Junkie” post: Writing is my first true love. Nothing inspires such pure thought to me as the lovely, defined sight of a keyboard. I also have a lifelong affection for the color pink, and anything sweet and pretty, and vintage things, and so: Pure eye candy.

In our technology-driven here and now, typewriters are rendered essentially useless. But for decoration, how nostalgic and cute would it be to have one of these?

Pink is and has always been the color I’m somehow drawn to. Here, a scrapbook of eclectic use of the color pink in interior decorating. If there’s too much pink, it’s way too much like a child’s room and very un-chic. When used appropriately, the look is florid rather than saccharine; and we just love it.

The best advice when decorating with pink is keep it simple. Use it as an accent, and stick with the same color family. Don’t mix fuchsia and real baby pink and expect it to carry a grown-up space. Also, try to keep everything else more mature and refined. Dark and lacquered woods add major drama, and nothing adds glamour like gold gilding…or paint.

I’m so loving young, bohemian style. It’s all in working it in without it getting too granola or too clashy. Lots of rich, jewel-tones and textures for fabrics; from canvas to crushed velvet. I like the idea of wrought iron being mixed with Swarovski crystals, or the patina of time-worn wood with sleek brass or chrome. Lots and lots of candles, and stacks of books. Easy–almost anything you’re given or bring into your space can be adapted quite easily to the bohemian style of decorating, as long as you keep a few underlying elements consistent. Being young means you can be eclectic, and if you’re eclectic that means you can do anything. You don’t have to follow rules; because the non-matching is the sheer brilliance of it.
