Charming hotel in Tahoe?

I asked myself this question when planning a trip to South Lake Tahoe over the holidays. After much internet sifting I found a diamond in the rough of all the casinos and cheesy motels in this area. The answer is Black Bear Inn. It's cozy, unique, and tastefully decorated in a rustic but restrained decor. Tahoe will be seeing more of us this winter!

I Heart CB2!

The new CB2 catalog (Crate & Barrel's modern offshoot) arrived in the mail yesterday with lots of fun, new products! Best of all: It's affordable. CB2 offers quality modern furniture at great prices, bringing real meaning to "Design Within Reach". Here are a few of my new favorites:

Desi marble side table, $199

Beale lounge chair, $299

Teepee dining table, $369
