Obsessing over the colors. Lots of  golds/ nude, shimmmmmmer, sparkle, and embellishment. But my fave is Michelle Williams in what I’m calling tangerine … similar to pantones color of 2012. But I have also heard the dress referred to as red and/or coral?  Cant tell on screen. What do you think of this color?  And ps i think Giuliana also looks fab in my fave metallic color GILVER. (goldsilver)

Love tonight.

Off to Paris in the a.m for PV fabric shows…. This is always the best show for spring / summer 2013 butttttt not so much for warm weather. This week I’ve packed lots of dresses, lace, boots and blazers with pops of color in my accessories and nail polish. I’m psyched for the show but bummed the hubs will have to spend valentines day solo. But. Better that I miss Vday vs his 30th birthday. This year the show is a week early and I’m thrilled.  I’d take a bday celebration over Vday annnnnytime.  Love to my hubs….

So. In prepping for a meeting for Spring 2013 this week, I have been scouring the internet for inspiring photos that are either fabulous for color- fabric- trim- trends you name it. I’m out there looking for it. and once again glitter guide kept my attention and I LOVE their pics of nailpolish colors and trends. I am a sucker for fun polish. and am going to HAVE to try adding a little glitter too. with mint polish of course.

ok. fabric is def the story of my life. work- all fabric all the time. home- LATELY fabric obsessed. I am determined to find the perrrfect fabric for our window treatments in the kitchen to match back to our CORAL stools. I can SO picture my end result. I just need to find a fabric and color I am honestly in love with. WELL. this week we received our fabric swatches from Caitlin Wilson Design and im kinda in love.

option #1 Coral Tall Chevron from Caitlin Wilson Textiles. Yes she sells fabric by the yard.

option #2 Mint Fleur Chinoiserie from Caitlin Wilson Textiles.

SO. CWD has THE best color sense in fabric. All of her colors are current, chic and modern. Not to mention her coral color is a PERFECT match to my coral stools and I am beyond obsessed with mint right now and have been for a couple years now. SO option #2 im kinda in love with.

 

option #3 from Premier Prints Inc.

option #4 from Premier Prints Inc.

So my premier prints options are AMAZING. the weight of the fabric is fantastic for window treatments, pillows, upholstery and its a fab $9.99/yd butttt the color is not perfect… but I LOVE the patterns.

And then we have the CWD options that are GORG. I mean the color could not match ANY BETTER. and option #2 really works with the kitchen. it has a fine black outline along the branch of the flower that matches the granite and island and then I love the mint color. If I am ever allowed the paint the walls WHITE I will be even happier with this print. buttttt it is $50/yd. WOAH major difference.  I mean I source, design, develop and scour the world for fabric as my JOB so to pay $50/yd is hurting my soul. BUT I JUST LOVE THE PRINT.
oh and did i mention it has a little bit of shimmer on it. j’aaaaaadore.

see below pics of all the options and then my numbah one love ON the stool. pretty fab match huh? I KNOW.

what do you think? lemme know

As I sit here in my pink office thinking about Spring 2013 trends- I think to myself about what I want to accomplish in 2012. So much has changed since this time last year and 2012 is something I have been thinking about A LOT. so basically it comes down to a few things out of many- FOCUSing on – * staying inspired by anything and everything and staying true to ME- * focusing on my diet wherever I may be in the world and doing more YOGA – and most importanly balancing my life BETTER and truly enjoying both aspects – work & personal since my life is split between PA & MA. this is uber importante: balance.

but in the meantime i came upon this great image from the glitter guide (which ps: OBSESSED) and LOVE it.  so important to dream BIG because after all dreams do come true. I live in New England now dont I ?

and…. i am so obsessed with mint green. as you know from all my mint furniture and mint fingernails i just had to share. ANOTHER great image from the glitter guide. LOVEEEEEEEEEEE.  i just had to share my mint obsession. it works SO well in a coastal home.

I could not be happier right now. Had the nicest day at home with the hubs and now we (when i say we… i mean he) are about to start cooking up a delish meal for new years. A couple years ago we started a tradition where if we are actually home… we try out a new recipe. Tonight: lobstah mac & cheese (gluten free of course). It has been a very busy, stressful and EXCITING year and I am so thankful to be ending this year together at home enjoying peace and quiet.

best wishes for 2012.

be SAFE.

thank you to cocodot for all my invitations for our 2011 parties. being back in new england will mean even MORE reasons to host a party in 2012.

so. recently i was skimming the pages of jcrew as i always do and instead of falling in love with a that perfect cardigan i just had to have for winter. i fell in love with a stool in the background. yes a stool. the page in general was a great color story. bright yellow with a royal blue accent and then my focus- the CORAL colored stool.  

it was just what I was looking for in our kitchen. we have a chopping block island from crate & barrel and in this new kitchen it needed a pop of color. so i started with a couple of stools.  we bought them from a mill store which has officially become my latest obsession. every piece of wooden furniture you could ever want -unfinished. which for someone who loves paint its a dream come true. and they do custom work AND will paint or stain for you.

and then VOILA stool numero uno painted CORAL. i went in to benjamin moore and asked for a sample. $4 later i have PLENTY of paint for two stools and then some.

will finish painting this weekend. just had to see how i liked the color in all of the lighting- morning- noon- night before painting the 2nd stool. its looking a bit pink salmon color in the night lighting… we will see if it is too “pinkish” tomorrow…. but if i love it then the next project is finding the perfect patterned fabric to make shades for the kitchen. thinking- ikat like pattern on canvas in similar coral- white- red/ bright pink color story.

love “staycations”… getting so much accomplished.
