Your heart skips a beat in the presence of metallics, mirrors, lacquer and sheen. You go all googly for luxe finishes, elegant furniture details, and rich fabrics and wallpapers. You'd sell your first-born child for a zebra-striped rug or a gold-toned wall sconce. Here's a news flash for you: you love Classic Glam.

Lilly and Matt are both chef instructors, so you can imagine that their Brookline apartment is full of tools of the trade.

Now that it's spring, I've been dreaming of bright, fresh colors and whimsical decor. When I found this House of Hackney wallpaper, featuring an accordion-playing lemur, a hookah-smoking sloth, and a julep-drinking badger, I knew there was a mood board in the offing.
