When being a designer is dangerous

Sometimes shopping for clients can be pretty difficult, especially when you are shopping for multiple clients at the same time . There are budgets and design plans and dimensions flying though my mind as I roam up and down the aisles trying to find the perfect items for each client . And if keeping all of that orgainized isn't difficult enough, I still manage to find room in my brain to imagine each item in my own home as well . Before I know it I have bought just as many items for myself as I have for my clients . This phenomenon seems to happen most often at fabric stores but lately accessory shopping has proven to be just as dangerous . Here are just a couple of the great finds I've discovered lately .  

I've had my eye on a gorgeous blue tiled storage box that is ridiculously expensive . I came across this green version for under $20 at HomeGoods last week ! 

I love the shape of this alabaster lamp . Drexel Heritage at TJ Maxx ? ? ? I just couldn't resist .

Also at TJ Maxx and HomeGoods,

this amazine watercolor wrapping paper . Oh, the possibilities for this paper .

And, speaking of color, I finally made a purchase from Furbish. I was so excited to open the box and see this beauty tucked inside .

It is almost impossible to be unhappy while in the presence of this rug .

Hopefully most of these items will make their way to client's homes instead of my own . Except that rug .  I mean, who are we kidding ? There is no way I can part with that thing !
