World's Hottest Dance Off

I don't have any idea how old this is, but I just saw it over on MFAMB. She had the caption, "Tell me again why drugs are bad?" underneath. These guys were in their own little world, just dancing like no one is looking. Dancing like frat boys aren't walking by trying to steal their shine. Dancing like you could give a shit that someone in a bandanna and a Kiss shirt is rocking out to electronica. I seriously cannot stop watching this shit. Clearly, homeboy in the jeans is the winner. Although, I am not sure to qualify him as a solo dancer or as a couple with the ground. And really the other guy has some kind of injury with his knee, so is this really a fair fight? It's a tough call. Yet what I see here are two amazing humans that clearly belong on the stage somewhere. I'm not sure where, but somewhere. And let me just go ahead and apologize for posting this, because you will feel completely more stupid for watching it. So sorry. And you're welcome.

Yeah, Exactly

I have been meaning to post this photo for some time now.
Ryan is the cutest little guy you will ever see!

Hôtel de Sévigné

On your next trip to the Champs-Elysées, you may want to check out the newly renovated Hôtel de Sévigné, a two mintue walk from the famed avenue. The 30 room hotel is aptly named after French Aristocrat and 17th century "A-Lister" Marquise de Sévigné. Sévigné wrote over 1000 letters during the course of her 70 years, mostly to her daughter, which were later published in volumes by her granddaughter in 1725. Her writing style contained a modern day wit as she chronicled daily life and exposed scandal and clandestine affairs of the royal court of Louis XIV. The hotel hallway above features an image Sévigné. Photos from Hôtel de Sévigné website.

Renovations were completed by Paris-based interior architects Didier and Fabrice Knoll. The quaint hotel is equidistant from the Eiffel Tower and Arch de Triumph.

Infrastructure improvements left a small budget for the interior architects to work with, but they managed to keep the elegance and flair of the society gal.

Nothing says French like embroidered fresh linens.

Furnishings were kept on the small side and patterns in the carpet and draperies add interest to the boutique style rooms.

Natural light from the small balcony gives this room a great view of the street and some exquisite French architecture.

Can you imagine a better place to eat breakfast?

Didier and Fabrice Knoll used the color lavender as a reference to Madame de Sévigné’s roots in Provence. The guest toiletries give an old world feel of a French apothecary.

Dontcha just love the size of a European bathroom? I guess you can't have it all.

Hotel walls and corridors display some of the writings of Sévigné. Such a lovely tribute to a woman ahead of her time!

Hot Mess Monday

Elle Decor recently featured a Santa Monica home with this rowboat on the ceiling of the master bedroom. Not only is this making me sea-sick, it is described as "A vintage Abercrombie & Fitch rowboat". WTF?

Believe in Palm Springs Yacht Club

We Believe from STEVEN PIPES on Vimeo.

Everyone knows I am a Palm Springs kinda gal, so when I got this promotional video from The Parker's Palm Springs Yacht Club it put a big smile on my face. Check it out and take in some of Jonathan Adler's quirky design sense. After all, you're only young once but you can be immature forever.

A+ in Advertising

This commercial for Travelers Insurance is the greatest thing I have seen in a long time. It features creatures big and small frolicking on a sunny day, set to the tune, "Summers Gone" by Scottish band Aberfeldy. Enjoy!
