Tangerine Tango and Honeysuckle - the best of past and present

How did we know what to do before Pantone introduced its color off the year??  The combination of 2011 and 2012 colors seems to be everywhere.  Of course we couldn't resist doing a little tabletop version.  The "placemat" is actually a Madeline Weinrib rug sample - so wish she made placemats!
One of the greatest uses of pink and orange for table decor!

The color combo is always great in a little girls room.  The photos above the bed just crack me up.

A more formal version for a guest room.  I'm such a fan of an Euro sham on twin beds - especially with great big gorgeous monogram.

Very french.

Bold palm beach-type color.

I came across this painting on Pinterest while working on the post.  It just puts a great big smile on my face.

So, do you or don't you do this combo?

Gaga for Green

I know, I know.  It's all about Tangerine.  
However, I thought we would revisit its complimentary hue...green.

One Pillow Many Beds

Meet our Pillow of the Year for 2011.  This custom monogrammed pillow - with it's unique design and pretty color combination - made a big impression with our blog readers and shop customers.  We whipped this up from one of our hand drawn monograms to offer an example of what is possible in the shop.  Little did we know this pillow would work with so many beds!
Subtle sophistication with a little BVN.  

Punchy fun with Lulu DK for Matouk.

Bold and bright with Designer's Guild floral duvet.

Boho Chic with John Robshaw quilt.

Tranquil and fresh with Serena and Lily.

And, in case you are wondering, the Pillow of the Year for 2010 was....

What will it be for 2012?  We can't wait to see!

Wanderlust...Arkansas Home Tour via Katie Ridder

 Wednesday we visited Texas.  Today I am pretending to live in Arkansas; in this beautiful home designed by Katie Ridder
Don't you love my lilac door and dark wood floors paired with a gorgeous staircase and grass cloth wallpaper?  
Thank you, me too.  
Please, come in and have a seat.
We have grand windows for you to look out but I bet you won't take your eyes off the fab tile! 
Excuse me for a minute while I run back upstairs to put the final touches on my primping.  
Don't you adore my blue cabinets with the marble? It makes me happy every time I come in the room.    

At last, we are ready for dinner.  This is a very bold choice for me but for a room that only gets used here and there why not go big?!?!  
Plus, there is a disco ball chandelier in case we want to have a post-dinner dance party.  

Thanks for coming by - Have a wonderful weekend!

House Tour: The Southern Eclectic's Eclectic Home

Are you familiar with Sheridan French?  She's the beauty and brains behind the woman's clothing line of the same name.  She's a fun, funky woman based in Fort Worth, TX who also writes a great blog (The Southern Eclectic) on the side.
Well, Casa Sugar just did a tour of her home and I was just delighted.  It's fun and funky and so worth a peak inside.  A few of my favorites - this kitchen.  Wow.  Love it!  It's so warm but spacious with lots of fun accents.  
What a fun family room.  The leopard rug with bold orange and pink curtains all anchored with a big comfy couch and sprinkled with eclectic accessories and details.  
Grand but not grandiose entrance.

Bet you recognize this piece from a few blog posts and pins. 

I imagine the dinner parties and family game nights are extra fun at this house!

To see the full tour and interview please visit Casa Sugar.

More Monograms

Happy Tuesday!  Hope everyone enjoyed a nice, long weekend.  We've been busy catching our breath after the holidays and going to market.  We managed to take a few shots of some monograms before they went out the door and I thought I'd share...

These two monograms are part of our custom monogram program - pretty fancy shmancy!

How cute are these orange trimmed Matouk Cairo towels with a two color monogram?

One of our New Year's resolutions is to take more pictures of our monograms...Hopefully more coming soon!

LA lovelies - It's all about glass

Part of my whole "get organized" plan is to tie up all those loose ends.  I realized I had some pictures from my Thanksgiving trip to LA that I've wanted to share...no time like the present!  Don't worry, I'm not going to bore you with every detail of the trip - just sharing a few pretty things I found that I think you might enjoy as well.
First, these gorgeous pressed glass cake stands.  I lost the card with the name of the shop but it's right on Abott Kinney in Venice - next to Intelligentsia for you LA folks.  If anyone is dying to know the place let me know and I'll do a more thorough search. 
The above image is of one of the display windows.  Doesn't it just beckon you to go and see more?  I did and I'm glad.  I was in my happy place.
The unbelievable part is that I managed to walk through this store (multiple times even) without breaking anything.  I'm a bit of a klutz.  Fortunately, I was carrying a small cross-body bag that helped keep me out of trouble.  I should mention I had a run-in the same week with a reindeer display at the grocery store.  I knocked poor Rudolph right over and let's just say Eric, an associate at the store, was not happy when he got paged for reindeer triage.  He looked at me and then at my big ole' bag and I just felt shame.  I felt the urge to express my annoyance with Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving but I bit my tongue. I don't think it would help the situation.  I digress....
Back to the glass...The lemon colored pieces were stunning, unfortunately the pic is not.  

Don't you want one of each one?  

Later that week I hit H.D. Buttercup with my sis (love that place).  My favorite part was the display of lights by Cisco Home.  
I want them all.  And, the large farm table. And, the two chairs behind. And, this phenomenal lavender bed I saw in the back. And...do you see a theme?  It's a dangerous place to visit.  Just be warned .
Finally, I found these precious blown glass bud vases that resemble my favorite Christmas ornaments.  Perfect gifts for those December birthdays and pretty all year long.  These stunners are at Floral Art (again on Abbott Kinney).

In other non-glass related events, the new Kelly Werstler shop had just opened when I was in town.  We were grabbing dinner down the street (Melrose this time - we did venture off Abott Kinney).  It was closed but I took a few shots through the windows because I thought the displays were great and very Kelly.

I mean, who doesn't want to see a woman standing on a large head?!

Oh, the restaurant we ate at down the street from KW's shop was Red O.  Fantastic Mexican cuisine that is not super easy to find for those of us on the east coast.   I had to keep myself from ordering multiples of the cucumber mint margaritas.  YUM. 

I enjoyed my little trip down memory lane.  Hope I didn't bore you to tears. Thanks for indulging me!

Organized Office Spaces

I don't know about you but I'm taking this New Year thing seriously.  I've buried myself in my office and made the mistake of trying to reorganize all of my files.  So, now I have piles and piles of papers waiting to be put in the right place.  I decided to take a little break and look for some inspiring office spaces to keep me motivated to complete the task.
  I've been a fan of this simple space since I saw it on the cover of BHG.  Nothing fancy, nothing "high design" but it just works.  Unfortunately, the layout doesn't work in my office space as I have way too much furniture in there right now.  Next home, perhaps.
Same office different view.

Small space with major storage and style.

A window to gaze out that is perfect for my daydreaming moments.

I'm a big fan of the double desks with middle divide.

I've posted this one probably three times.  I just adore this room.

If I ever have more space than I know what to do with it I'd love a work space like this studio.  

Anyone else tackling this monster of a project this week?
