Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have put their Encino home on the market for $3.2 million, and my friend Hooked on Houses has the full tour. Tori's living room has a trendy, Jonathan Adler meets Hollywood regency vibe. While I'm not a fan of how the whole look comes together — maybe it's the beige? — there are a few standout pieces in my mind. One of my favorites is the framed photograph on the right side of the room. It focuses on a chic, 1950s lady leading against the column of a poolside gazebo and was taken by a noted photographer.

One of CasaSugar's Facebook fans, Kim, wrote us earlier this month determined to find out the artist who created the print with the blue-tinted trees in Jennifer Aniston's apartment in Bounty Hunter. I didn't know offhand at all who the artist is, but I did some research to find the film's production designer, Jane Musky, and I reached out to her agent in search of the source. Yesterday, I got a phone call from Virginia-based sculptor, painter, and printmaker Eve Stockton, saying the film's set designer, Ellen Christiansen, had given her my contact information. What do you know? Eve is the artist!
The print featured is actually a blue woodcut called "Evolutionary Landscape." In the film, the print is 3'x3', but it was originally editioned as a 3'x6' print.
There are also two other large woodcuts of Eve's featured in the same apartment in the film, which are from her ongoing "Blooms" series. One of Eve's "Bloom" woodcuts will also be used in the upcoming movie Something Borrowed, and a smaller version of "Bloom" is being used in the Laura Linney series The Big C on Showtime.
If you're interested in purchasing some of Eve's sprightly botanical artwork for your own home, you can contact her here. Hoping to recreate the style of Jennifer Aniston's apartment in Bounty Hunter? Be sure to check out my Get the Look.
Conceptualized as a super-fashionable Sámi playground, the Fall-Winter 2010-2011 collection from Claire Campbell is a delight to page through. I paused at this shot, which featured a knit lamp that I knew I'd seen before. Its soft, woolen design looks like the perfect complement to a relaxing bedroom. Want to see where to find it?

I will admit: I can't resist a Jennifer Aniston movie — I, too, am a huge fan. Throw Adam Sandler in there and it's a sure bet that I'll fork over $13 for a ticket. Naturally, I couldn't help but take a peek at some of the interior design eye candy awaiting me in Jen's newest flick, Just Go With It. Seeing as the film is set in Hawaii, there's plenty of token Polynesian décor on the set, but I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon a few furnishings that I absolutely love. One of these is the swirling vine-patterned brown and white rug in this scene with Ms. Aniston herself. It's quite neutral but it also has great movement; I'm sure I could find plenty of places for it in my city-centric home. Wondering where it's from? Read on to find out.
Reading Condé Nast Traveler's 2011 Gold List of the best hotels in the world, I was turned on to Hotel Murano in Tacoma, WA. From the showstopping Venetian chandelier from Murano in the lobby to custom-blown glass lamps in the suites, the hotel, which is blocks from the Museum of Glass, is known for its statement-making glass art pieces. While the glass is gorgeous, the accessories that I can't take my eyes off are the sprightly velvet appliqué pillows in the bedrooms and sitting areas. Not only are they beautifully patterned, but they also looked quite familiar to me. After doing a little digging, I realized where I'd seen them. Wondering where you can pick some up for yourself?

I just saw the trailer for Sofia Coppola's new film, Somewhere, out Dec. 22, in theaters and was so anxious to see the film that I ran home to watch the trailer again. The premise of the story is that a sort of hard-living, bad boy actor (Stephen Dorff) is living in the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles and reconnects with his young daughter (Elle Fanning), which makes him reconsider his life of excess. Thus, the moody, atmospheric film treats us to some stellar hotel interiors. When I was watching the trailer, I couldn't help but notice this awesome poster that reads "Cold Beer Beautiful Girls" leaning against a hotel room wall — could there be a better motto to describe every man's dreams?
I did a little digging and discovered the artist. Wondering who made it? Then continue reading!
I recently watched a fun tour from actress Heather Morris of the bedroom of her character Brittany on Glee — available for your viewing pleasure above and on Hulu. Along with some hilarious elements in the video like a Charlie St. Cloud poster and 30 actual notches on Brittany's bedpost to mark her many lovers, I also got a kick out of her stunning wallpaper. With its soft turquoise background and delicate bird and butterfly pattern, it's a perfect fit for a girly-girl like Brittany. Wondering where you can pick up the pretty paper for your own home?

On Friday night, I stepped out with my parents-in-law to downtown Berkeley's Gather restaurant. The locally sourced new American cuisine restaurant featured polished concrete floors, reclaimed slab tables, and displays of in-house canned veggies artfully arranged in nooks along the walls. What really caught my eye, though, were these repeating, net-like pendant lamps seen throughout the dining space.
I knew I'd seen them before. After a quick check online, my suspicions were confirmed. Want to see where you can get your own? Find out now!
While I was checking out the gallery of photos on the Woolly Pocket site, I couldn't help but smile at the sight of this room, with its lovely bromeliad wall planting. On the opposite wall, friendly frolicking whales gave the plants a run for their money in the charm department.While I love the fun, funky look this wallpaper lends to this den, I can't help but covet it for a little boy's room. I just had to track it down in case I wanted to add it to my baby's room in the next year. Want to know where you can find it? Then read more
The Weeds loft which Pilar Proffitt designed for the Showtime House 2010 is one of the most livable rooms, with a palette that I completely covet. While the lines of the furniture, designed by Proffit's design firm POESIS, are absolutely stunning, my favorite element is the large-scale brown and mauve medallion rug. It pairs beautifully with the soft lavender walls, and I'd kill to have one in my home! Wondering where you can pick it up? Continue reading to find out!
