You had me at first glance!

let me start by saying - PICTURE OVERLOAD - but i couldn't help myself
these are SHOW STOPPING spaces that i HAD to post

"UNIVERSE please send me some of this decor love my way!" - your friend Erika

*gasp* the chandelier!

this could VERY possibly be MY house - LOVE it all
you know whomever lives here is totally a rock star right?!
and YES, i'm sayin' i'm a rock star too! - aren't you?!

elegance - yes this screams elegance to me
i feel this retro 60's - 70's vibe all the way
please decor gods hear me out - I WANT THIS! - ALL OF IT!

i'm already thinking of how i will recreate this!
my mind is a buzz right now!

they have Panton chairs, come on, you knew i had to throw some Panton's out there!

1.  i LOVE mushrooms and 2.  my Niece LOVES penguins
i think this is a match made in heaven!
no lie - i want a mushroom outdoor table and seating for my backyard!
(always been my dream)

i have those white balls in red! (in my home office)
i love how they connected 2 coffee tables to make 1 huge one
Buddha guy on the table + tribal artwork + the Asian piece = *adore*

i wanna run home and write on my mirrors right now!

i HAD to add this picture - who else wants a lil piggy?!
fun fact: i soon will be the proud Mommy of a mini-pig (yes a real one)

lucite - how much do i LOVE lucite?!
the mirror + fireplace + stools + pink pillows
this place calls for a GIRLS NIGHT!


Mom Update:
her hair coming out in clumps today - she thought it 'might not happen to her' - but it is starting - i'm taking her to a 'support group' today where they show her how to create eyebrows and so forth - it's at the PERFECT time for her i think - and i will do my darnest to make this day HAPPY and not SAD! -- oh and it SNOWED again today *oye*
