Color Me Kate...


I just adore the use of color that Kate Spade uses with abandon. From the ads (seen above) to the products to the stores (seen below). The brand has a playful happy approach to design and I love it. Just wanted to share a few pictures that make me happy as I start my weekend.





Happy weekend to you too!....

de Gorgeous de Gournay





I adore chinoiserie and for some reason I have not been able to stop thinking about deGournay handpainted wallpaper lately. No matter where I see it I just swoon, but these days I can't shake the Chinoiserie wallpaper in green. Here are just a few memorable images that I am sure you have seen before.

The question is, if I were to get my hands on such gorgeous wallpaper...where to hang it....

Lush and Lovely...


I have returned from my vacation in New Hampshire well rested and wishing I had a green thumb. Look at these gorgeous dinner plate dahlias we saw at Spring Ledge Farm in New London, NH. They are so lush, full and lovely. They are one of my very favorite flowers. I told A. that when we finally own a house I would like to have a flower cutting garden. This will be a huge endeavor being that I have what I like to call a very brown thumb. A. on the other hand is very good in the garden and you would think that I would have picked up a thing or two from him...no such luck. However, I am feeling so inspired right now that who knows, I just might turn it around. I assure you that if I do dinner plate dahlias will be some of the first flowers I plant.
