New Set Of Wheels

I would love to have the office one step closer to "finished" and I believe the next step is figuring out the chair situation.  The reupholstered cushions came in but I want to have them sprayed and use them as the desk chairs.  The problem is they are not tall enough for the desks and I really love a desk chair on wheels.  
 I thought adding casters would be easy but the base of the legs does not allow anything to be screwed in from the bottom and the tapered legs add another difficult element.
One solution is casters made for antique chairs with cups that cater to the tapered legs but so far all that I have found have been at least $13/caster like these.
However, I am unsure of these are made for heavy use and when you multiply them by 4 legs on multiple chairs- chairs that I love but not worth spending too much on- it becomes more than I want to put into these particular chairs.  So, if you know of any options I am not thinking of for these legs please let me know.  I would love to be able to use the chairs if possible.

Segreto Part II

Yesterday I posted about a book I love Segreto, Secrets To Finishing Beautiful Interiors.  However, the book is so full of beautiful spaces I had to share some more (although there is a lot more to be seen in the book).

Gorgeous Finishes, Segreto, Part 1

One of the most important parts of the design process is planning the details.  What can you do to take a space one step farther?  When I received the book, Segreto, Secrets To Finishing Beautiful Interiors, I knew I was in for a treat.  The author, Leslie Sinclair, and her team paint, plaster, stencil, faux finish and more the most amazing spaces.  The book is packed with gorgeous and awe inspiring rooms.  Here are just some.....
Remember this kitchen? One of my all time favorites.....
I highly recommend this book.  The interiors are timeless, elegant, classic and awe inspiring.  Beautiful photography and pages of talented designers make it a wonderful read.

Guilty as i am! ;)
Temperatures are finally beginning to rise , and with the first sun here i am.
On Saturday i went with one of my blogger girls, lovely Marina to the center, you know how it goes: checking the stores, having a coffee break, gossiping about the past week ..etc . And of course, outfit post was included with that lazy package day! ;) So, prepare for the photos overload cause we were trying out her new lenses! You know how much we love our toys! ;)
I was wearing completely new things, Zara floral shirt, Mango heels and Bershka skinny jeans, which i bought last two months, but i didn't had chance to show you. The coat was the part of my "Stradivarius&Chicisimo" gift box.  Also the newest addition to my jewelry are these gorgeous pastel rings, im in love with them!And i also love "sale" time! ;)
Last night i was watching the Oscars , and my favorite was Gwyneth Paltrow without any doubt! In the meantime happened that strange thing called "Angelina's right leg" and i needed to recreate it immediately, click Here! ;)You know how much i like to goof around! ;)
Hope you will like the new photos and cute gif (huge thanks to Marina) and im hoping that i will hear your best dressed from last night!
Enjoy in this sunny day!
