Feeling Blue?

the beautiful little details in life can help!
I love, love, love the Eero Saarinen tulip table paired with a vase (s) filled with gorgeous flowers! The roses styled above are by the wonderfully talented Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things. See her entire article in the latest online design magazine Ivy and Piper! Gorgeous!!!
The side table version is so sweet, isn’t it?

Lavender + Lilac

Aren’t these flowers gorgeous? {inspiring wedding colors}

I’m drawn to certain colors at different times..who knows why? When I was pregnant it was pink {i guess that’s not hard to figure out}. I’m most likely subliminally seduced with fashion and shelter magazines..this month’s obsession is with lavender + lilac..{I’m guessing I’m craving cooler colors because of the crazy heat} not necessarily by entire rooms swathed by these colors but small touches!

I discovered this week that my favorite Sister Parish fabric – Burma is now available in lavender! {they’ve added a number of colors}

{ these walls might be a bit much after a while, but I’m loving the pillow, romans’ + headboard}

{an oldie but goodie}

Happy Mother’s Day!

Is this not the cutest shot? I’ve got to purchase this top and bloomers for Emerson! {Rikshaw Design} – I also adore their bedding.Happy Mother’s Day to all Mommie’s, your wonderful Moms’ and to those who are cherishing the memory of their amazing Mothers’! Enjoy your weekend!I just had to share Jonathan Adler’s idea on how to deconstruct your basic arrangement..spread it out among various vases..wow! now doesn’t that look sooo much better?

While I’m on the topic of Jonathan Alder, I have to share this adorable pillow. I don’t think I can resist it! {available at the end of the month}

Pretty Please..

I went to college in Maryland, but always made it a point to head to D.C. to see the gorgeous cherry blossoms this time of year! How I miss early Spring! {it’s non-existent here in Boston}

SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER…!! or so it had better be, I need a dose of sunny warm weather like never before!
