Goodness, do I love me a good stripe! The perfect mix of classic and fun. An essential component of happy design.

I'll let the stripes do the talking.

Happy weekend!

Dinner in Paradise.

I stopped dead in my tracks when I stumbled upon these images. I can only image the dinner parties that take place in this breathtaking dining space.

Where to begin? The white lacquered table is in amazing juxtaposition with the rustic wood planked ceiling. And aren't the "walls" the perfect shade of green? :)

Check out the full article here. The rest of the property is just as sensational ( had to include the gazebo / bathtub combo ) but this dining room is what really caught my eye.

Where do I make reservation?

Thank you mailman.

What a pleasure it was to find the new House Beautiful waiting for me in my mailbox yesterday. Always a good day when this comes! I haven't even had a chance to crack it open yet, but I can't wait.

I must say I found the cover a bit ironic. The October issue is all about expressing yourself and finding your personal style, yet the creative geniuses chose to also include "12 style icons" on the cover. The two just seem like opposite themes to me. But then again my creative theory is pretty much identical to that cover: admire and study icons who inspire you you but always (always!) remain true to what you love, whether it's top on the style radar or not.

Can't wait to crack HB October 2010 open and become inspired!

Come on baby, light my fire.

I love the bold, saturated colors of these vintage matchbooks archived with The Boston Public Library. Find them here and marvel over all the beautiful, classic designs. Preppy and quirky at the same time, wouldn’t they look great blown up and grouped on a wall. They would exude such an effortless glamour of an era gone-by. Or wouldn’t one be so tongue and cheek in the best way resting inside of a (non-working) fireplace

Green with envy.

I am lusting over these green velvet curtains that seem to stretch all the way up to the sky. I love that luxurious fabric so much that I’m scheming up a way to incorporate a bit of it in my own apartment. I think the dining room might be just the place to indulge.

Go green!

Once upon a time.

There was a girl who loved interior design, art, and all things stylish and beautiful. She loved to dream and felt compelled to share her visions with the world. Finally, a platform to share all the things in life that inspire...

Happy to announce the grand opening of A Thousand Laughing Starfish.

Take a look around and be sure to come back soon!

About me.

Hi, I'm Heidi. I'm a twenty-something interior designer who loves admiring and creating beautiful spaces. I also love fashion, travel, styling and preparing delicious feasts. Inspiration, for me, is found in just about everything and is what makes life so sweet.

Thanks for stopping by A Thousand Laughing Starfish. This is my place to share anything and everything that inspires me. I'm such a visual person and creative images light my bones on fire.
