Best of the Web + Weekly Wrap Up

The weather report is tempting us with promises of warmer weather this weekend, so our D*S team is packing up and heading outside to soak up some sun. We’ve got some exciting peeks coming up next week, from great hotels and home interiors to a look inside the lives of our favorite photographers. Also, a roundup of the BEST home fabrics around. Until Monday, we hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xo, grace

Best of D*S This Week:



  1. anyone know the source for these light fixtures above?

  2. Zandra Zuraw says:

    Love that ceiling fixture in the first photo! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Aqiyl Aniys says:

    I love the blue an white design of the kitchen.

  4. The Macadame says:

    Thanks for sharing! I absolutely love the pendant lights in both pics :) Even those gold tables are to die for :)

    The Macadame. xx

  5. I like the clustered ornamentation going on in the first photo! I’ve been thinking about it and it makes perfect sense to focus most of the ornamentation and detail into the most essential corner of the room and leaving all the other walls close to blank.
    The contrast breaks up the boring six plane structure of a room and helps identify points of interest.
    Very good design decision, in my opinion. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day!

  6. Jeff Marlon says:

    This is some very creative design work. I think powerful graphic designing needed to created such type of perfect image. I really appreciate the designer.
