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. :)

Sage Advice

Back in, like, 2000 I’m pretty sure everything and their mother had something Restoration Hardware “Silver Sage” in their house. The paint (guilty), the bedding (guilty) and just about anything else they made came in this “it” color.  And then there was the “silver sage backlash” and I for one, rarely used this color for about a decade.  It was so over-saturated in decor that it turned me off.

And guess what, now I love it again! Proof that just about every trend will see a resurgence at some point (except, hopefully, lace curtains and doileys).

My favorite tone of sage is one that is based in grey, but adds interest with a cast of green.  Take a peek at these inspirational spaces and tell me you’re not a little tempted :)

Fall’s Unexpected Color


I noticed an amazing chartreuse velvet pillow in the Pottery Barn fall catalog and wanted to use it in a project- but I went to order it yesterday and it was the only color sold out!  I never would have expected it since this color is totally polarizing and not exactly a common favorite.  But I do see it popping up here and there in fall spreads and think it’s going to be a popular accent color for fall decorating!

Here are some finishes and textures that work well with chartreuse in any space-


1. Tortoise accents- glasses, frames, trays- you name it!

2. Modern black and brass fixtures.

3. A palette inspired by nature- while this is a bold color, it is a natural one!

4. The crisp shade looks amazing with wood finishes, from limed oak to rich walnut.

5. Brass looks AMAZING with this palette!

6. Add it in in small doses, like this small scale pattern.

7. It also could not look better with zebra!

8. Leather + chartreuse= YUM.

9.  Modern art in black and white.

10. Greys and chartreuse mix well.

Feeding My Blue Obsession.

I saw these pictures from Mark D. Sikes’ Legends of La Cienega window design and just LOOOOOOOOOVED it.  I don’t know why I am having such a blue obsession right now- perhaps all those Y chromosomes from Baby Gates are affecting my brain- but I am loving the bright, bold blues shown here so much.  And I love the combination of all the patterns- from the tile to wallpaper, leopard and chinoiserie vases. I have GOT to work some of this shade into my living room STAT.


I Need Some Color.

All of the sudden winter has turned to summer and I am CRAVING adding some color to my house.  Like, desperate for it.  I was all happy with my monochromatic palette and for some reason I feel the need to add bold pops of blue or coral or pink to it. I still would keep the basics neutral, advice I give any client who changes their mind as often as I do, but I think I’ll get busy changing things up in my living room (finally) and guest room.  And this month’s House Beautiful only encouraged me further with it’s great collection of homes that use bold color in genius ways.

The gorgeous New Orleans home of Jane Scott Hodges, owner of Leontine Linens (the dream bedding of everyone) is a mix of classic traditional style and modern punches of color.
