A Blue Binge.

I have been so all bout bold blues the past few months (perhaps because of the little boy?) and I had so much fun pulling together this cozy bedroom by letting my blue freak flag fly. I started with this amazing block print duvet from Kalyana Textiles and went all out from there. And take note, that amazing blue art comes HUGE. :)

The Blogger Book Club: Emily Henderson

I’ll admit that I don’t read many blog anymore due to my insane schedule- and like a lot of you probably do- when my work day is over I want to something not work related. But when I do find time, I go right to the long-time partners in the blog trenches whose work I really admire. Emily Henderson is one of those people. I LOVE her. Her sunny smile, disposition, funny voice and amazing talent are what makes her the superstar she is. So I was not surprised when I heard she was doing a book and knew it would be just as awesome as she is. (And she managed not only to release Styled, her fun, fab new book but also give birth to her daughter all in the same time frame!

What I love about design is how different we all do it.  Emily’s colorful, California cool vibe is so different from what I do day-to-day but I adore it.  You know when you look at images of spaces so different from your own and think “Man, I want to live like THAT! I would be so much cooler if my house was like that one!” :)  That’s how I feel about the spaces in Emily’s book.


And it’s a mix of spaces by different designers that look cohesive due to Emily’s ninja styling skills.  This book is more about styling your space, not top to bottom design.  Basically, how to get your space to look as “done” as those you see in magazines.  I think that last 10% of design (the styling) tends to be the hardest for people to do- which is what makes this book handy!

Having been through the book process I know what it’s like to have to pick certain images to use and others that you have to trash.  It’s painful!  You have all these fantastic shots but for one reason or another some end up on the cutting room floor.  Emily sent over these exclusive outtakes from her book editing process- ones that didn’t make it in but that she still loves.

This one is SO good- can you imagine sitting her with a glass of wine after a long day and looking at a magazine or chatting with friends? DIE.

Dreaming in Blue

I saw this Manhattan bedroom by designer Kelly Behun in the new Elle Decor and gasped.   The color of this Gracie wallpaper is insanely good (and looks way better in the magazine than in my crappy iPhone snaps!)  I don’t think I will ever tire of this look- ever (except for those crazypants bird/feather lamps- NO NO NO)

Wouldn’t it be so cheery to wake up to this scene???


Now, the thing about Gracie paper is MONEY. Lots of it. I quoted some once and one wall alone was going to be over $5,000. So, here’s a way to get this look for much less.  I foudn this paper on Mural Sources and you could either do the whole wall behind your bed or frame two panels in gold frames and hang above each nightstand like I did in my old master bedroom.  I think this came pretty darn close to capturing the look above!

Couple Crush: Gen & Ben Sohr

Did you guys see the tour of Ben and Gen Sohr’s home on One Kings’s Lane???  It’s awesome.  This couple is too cool for school.  I love their bold yet not TOO crazy look and thought I’d share it along with some picks on getting the look.

This kitchen- yes please.

Love the brass open shelves flanking that oh-la-la range.

A great graphic wallpaper in the entry hall adds some drama, but paired with simple, classic sconces to keep it from getting too bold.

A Quick Nantucket Trip

Instead of anything material this year, I told Andrew all I wanted for my birthday was to go back to Nantucket for a night. So on Thursday we hopped on the ferry and went over on what had to be the most beautiful day of the summer!

Of course I had to pay a visit to my favorite house on the island, Hunky Dory, which is just amazing.
