The Scene - Calypso Home and HGTV's Jordan Cappella

Did I say Jordan Cappella?

I did.  And you know you're jealous because seriously, I'm all for a man with an accent.  So in episode one of DesignStar he didn't remove his shirt like David Bromstad of Color Me In Love With His Abs fame (side note: my fingers insist on typing it shurt; like seven times I retyped it) but hello Mr. Accent!

I'm voting for him.


Most of my LA friends think I'm a bit crazy.  Come to think of it, most of my friends period think I'm a bit crazy.  I'll own up to it though.  I admit that there is a straight jacket somewhere with my name embroidered into the lapel. Do straight jackets have lapels?  The reason for my craziness is that I quite often make the 103.7 mile jaunt to Los Angeles from San Diego to attend parties where pretty fabric and super sexy furniture are the center of attention.

An invitation to Brentwood's Calypso Home meant I was back in the car singing at the top of my lungs to Kenny G.  Fortunately for me, Mr. G was the only disappointing point of the evening.   Can we talk about pillows for a minute?  Some of you might remember the scene from Along Came Polly where Ben Stiller takes out his pent up divorced aggressions on a series of throw pillows (and then his mattress.... long story).  Stiller would have had a field day because there was a WALL of pillows.  Yeah, a shit load of pillows.

I said shit.  Hehe.

But seriously, I wanted to take home half the store.  Between the asymmetric porcelain pendants in the window, the knitted wall clocks, and the metal table with the wood herringbone top, I was looking for the nearest U-Haul rental facility.  And we're not talking a little 3 foot U-Haul.  We're talking the big one with the Grandma's Attic.

You're still thinking about the knitted clocks aren't you?  Or Jordan's take on the importance of the letter "u".

Can I get a candle now?
