I love the home floor at Bergdorf's. It makes me so happy. Right off the escalator you have John Derian, then a little further down is Kelly Wearstler's little jewel box of a shop within the shop. When I was there last week, I fell in love with the beautiful and glamorous ceramics of Waylande Gregory. See it here. It's a little Klimt, a little deco, a little Hermes-ish. Amazing. You know when you find something that is just SO YOU and exactly what you wish you would have designed in your wildest creative dreams?? I bought this little jade colored box with orange dots and a gold cougar. It is insanely awesome and my new prized possession. 

It inspired my little painting below, which in retrospect looks like fried eggs but could be a cute pattern in another color!
