It had been a few months since my last trip to Chamber when I popped in last week before an opening and found the store has all new merchandise! New Stuff – Yay!

Of course, it was hard to miss this amazing, one-of-a-kind carpet by designer Alexandra Kehayoglou, which — as you can see by my photos — is definitely the focal point of the stores’ main showroom space.

Did you know that legendary Hollywood movie actress /sex symbol Jayne Mansfield and her husband, Mickey Hargitay, once lived in a mansion that was known as The Pink Palace? While it was painted pink on the outside and had a pretty crazy Pink Bathroom (that was not only carpeted wall to wall but also floor to ceiling) few of the interior rooms had a pink color scheme. Still, The Pink Palace – which included a custom-designed, heart shaped swimming pool — had a unique design aesthetic and no shortage of over-the-top decor! See more photos of Jayne and The Pink Palace, which was demolished in 2002, at This Link.

Pleated Jeans has an hilarious post that compares a series of pictures of ordinary stuff as adults see it versus how kids see it. Above you will see an example from the “Hot Lava” game that even I played as a kid, where you have to jump from one piece of furniture to the next without touching the floor, or risk being swallowed up by the “hot lava” which has replaced the carpet.

Modern and innovative home design gets my attention every time. I love this egg rug where the yolks serve as head cushions – perfect for lounging on the floor and watching TV in true comfort. Eggstatic!

I’m Sorry I Made The Intern Cry in The Ladies Room

Im Sorry Pug
I’m Really Very Sorry

If I’d known that by firmly suggesting to the Commodities Intern that it would be best if she threw used staples into the trash can, where they belong, instead of on the carpet, it would scar her for life, I maybe wouldn’t have said anything. But just maybe. Because, come on, who does that?
