Are you one of our Facebook friends? If so, then you’ve already seen this juicy post. If you’re not, then this post is for you (and you should friend us, because friends hear about sales and deals first).
I saw a picture of this tween room and got thirsty. That sounds crazy, but admit it, this room is literally dripping with juicy color. So much juicy, saturated color. See, you’re getting a little thirsty, aren’t you? Your mouth is literally watering right now, huh?
I told you.
We love these vibrant hues for bold, energetic, free-spirited tweens. They scream fun and confidence and personality. Check out all coordinating and complementing items here.
Spring is officially here, not because the calendar says so, but because everything is in bloom. The world has been painted with swatches of pink, yellow, purple, orange, blue and green, and it’s lovely. Our favorite floral finds this spring…
I know, I know, this is something we talk about a lot here. But, hey, it’s part of our tag line for a reason.
On a personal note, I’m finally getting around to redoing my littlest son’s room, as well as my daughter’s room. Two room makeovers at once! Chaos, truly. But as a result, I’ve been perusing the internet, consulting decorating books and magazines, and pulling out all my old Domino magazines (oh Domino, how I miss you!). I aspire to think outside the box, to leave my traditionally decorated upbringing behind to create rooms for them that are warm, creative and fun. And I need help doing that, because I am a product of the 1980s Williamsburg/Americana-inspired interiors. It’s why I papered my son’s wall with antique maps and it’s why I created silhouettes of my little girl with fun fabrics to capture the happy, quiet beauty of little girls.
And now, we’ve discovered that it is, once again, featured on this amazing site, Nursery Notations. Which is great for three reasons: 1) because it means that other people feel the same way we do about purple, and 2) because we discovered an amazing new site. It’s so well done, and it speaks to our very nature as nursery connoisseurs, of sorts. We love finding new inspiration, and this site reads like a luxurious magazine.
I never thought I’d be so happy to see another overcast day. Puxatawny Phil actually DIDN’T see his shadow, and so of course this means Spring is on its way.
This is GOOD news. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had about as much of winter as I can stand this year. Thankfully, I’m not in Chicago or the Northeast right now. I see rain and an unseasonably warm day ahead. I also see an irreversible case of Spring fever in my future.
And so, I’m immersing myself in all things springy today! Like this. And this. And this!
Clean and crisp, nautical inspired navy and white pops up almost every Spring fashion season. Spring 2011 is no exception. We love the classic combination, whether it’s on a tank top, like this top by Jil Sander, or in a tot’s room.
Inspiration can come from anywhere. Like the mirrored ball dropping in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. OK, so it’s technically not “mirrored” but those thousands of tiny Swarovski crystals sure have that effect. And I began thinking about reflections. Unfortunately, not the “deep thoughts” kind. The pretty, shiny, sparkly kind.
I’ve been coveting the mirrored vanities I’ve seen popping up in every decorating magazine I purchase. So chic and elegant, so romantic, so…WOW. I adore them, but honestly I’m not sure I have the panache to pull it off. Or maybe I do…
Metallic finishes, whether mirrored or merely painted on, transport me to the opulent halls of Versailles. That opulence is gorgeous, albeit perhaps a bit overwhelming, but if you stick with key pieces (an elegant but not too frou-frou dresser, an ornate cut glass mirror, or a clever light fixture), you too can bring a little piece of the romance of Versailles into your home.
