Sometimes my favorite pieces of inspiration for decorating come from the world of retail. The above Paul Smith store has so many different elements that are just so fantastic. I don't make it to the mall very often but when I do I almost loose sight of any missions I might be on because of those beautifully and creatively decorated spaces that usually sell really expensive items. The Tory Burch store is always a favorite. I also love the Carolina Herrera store here in Scottsdale. Do you have any favorites?

Of course the above space was photographed by the talented Brian Park.

Those chairs have just given me a burst of inspiration--thank you for that!

It would be fun to put on our oversized glasses and have a little mommy field trip one afternoon and go window shopping.

I'm gonna break some rules and leave a comment here for another post--don't arrest me--but have you ever cooked fruit in with the quinoa and water?

I love the Carolina Herrera store in Scottsdale, too. I am loving the new Tory Burch store at Scottsdale, especially the set of "X" benches that are mingled in that stores decor. Also, have to give a shout out to the fabulous Ferragamo store (my old employer). It's very streamline and modern.

Wow that multicolor marbled upholstered Bergere chair and settee is blowing my mind. I love the mix of old and new, yet still so clean and sophisticated.
