Whenever I entertain guests in my home, I always take into consideration which flatware set I will use. Sometimes I use my Puiforcat ones. Sometimes I use my vintage American 1960s Reed & Barton set. But my favorite set is, no doubt, Town & Country from Allan Adler. This Californian silversmith hand made all his flatware which is rarely seen in this much automation world. I love the fact that each piece essentially is unique. The design is classic, streamlined, and restrained.

For any city dwellers who likes to cook, it's always wasteful to buy a whole packet of herbs and only ended up using few sprigs. Aerogarden from Miracle-Gro came up with a compact garden that can go into any kitchen. Some of them are even equipped with LED lights so that you can grow your herbs indoor while not using a lot of energy. How cool is that? Now get your aprons on!

A bedroom has two main focal points: one is bed, and the other is chandelier. Recess lighting is always good to have but to have a nice chandelier hanging from ceiling, is even better. A girly chandelier like this one from Circa Lighting is a perfect backdrop for any teenage girl's room. Designed by Aerin Lauder, grand daughter of Estee Lauder, she is also the style and image director for the Estée Lauder Companies.

If you are look for a streamlined colorful lamp that would pop in any room, look no further than Jan Showers' Venetian lamp series No.4 in turquoise. I love the simple silhouette which actually reminds me a lot of 18th century Peking glass that were produced in China. The vibrant turquoise color is perfect for a Hollywood Regency style interior or a sleek modernist home.

Not very often does one do a double take when looking at a piece of furniture. But this bench certainly fits the bill! Designed by 22 22 Edition Design, the Illusion bench definitely lives up to its namesake. I think it is a perfect seating for one's entry area. The color combination reminds me of lacquer work done by Art Deco French masters. This series also come with three other color combinations.
