Another space I spotted in Rue this month was the offices of designer Kriste Michelini. I love the open, light, bright space she creates with streamlined and subtle details. I went a little more “Wes Anderson” with my new office and occasionally I regret it and think I should make it more serene. Other days, like when it’s grey and depressing out, coming in to those bright coral walls is just the lift I need (and by the way, we’re gonna shoot it for you soon!!) But oh, how I adore a good black and white palette!!!

I saw this AMAZING shot of a black bathtub in the newest Rue Magazine and it reminded me how much I love the look of a classic tub outfitting in my favorite colors. As we were planning our new master bath we had to forgo a tub, mostly because of space restraints but also because I rarely take baths (however, which comes first, a love of baths or an amazing bathtub?) I hope someday I can have a tub like this but for now a girl can dream…
So I rounded up my favorite images of black bathtubs for some inspiration…
( I mean, the cuteness is too much!)

When the weather starts getting warmer I find myself drawn to more bohemian styles, particularly block prints, a long standing personal favorite. Kalyana Textiles is a new small business that specializes in lovely home goods that are hand printed in India providing families there a sustainable source of income. It’s such a great business model and look at how fetching these prints are! And just for you, enjoy free shipping on your order through April 15th by using the code “EOSSHIP”. ( FYI- US orders only!)
The printing process in action.
Along with pillows, they sell quilts, napkins and tea towels.

I saw this drop dead gorgeous image of the terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York and thought it was fantastic inspiration for anyone’s own patio! I have some of Peter Dunham’s Fig Leaf pillows in my own sunroom and even though it’s been seen everywhere I have to say I STILL love it above all other pillows in my home. Some things just stay fresh, and this print is one of them.
So here’s how I’d translate this terrace into a patio or porch design…
sofa // curtains // light // pillow // glasses // table // chairs // lantern // string lights // rug // planters
And if the Peter Dunham is too pricey, there is a great alternative on Spoonflower by Domesticate called Tropicali Afternoon.

I saw this shot of Elle McPherson (who is looking unreal at 50) and thought, “Man, that all white situation is pretty amazing…”. Head to toe white can be tough (especially for those of us who spill CONSTANTLY on themselves….ahem) but it’s such an elegant, crisp look for warmer months.
Here are two variations on how to wear head to toe white without looking like a medical professional. The key is to mix in slightly different shades and hints of nude to break it up. I am pretty obsessed with this first outfit and think it may need to be a total staple outfit this summer (perfect for dinner out or a casual day if you swap in flat sandals!)
sweater // jeans // heels // clutch // necklace // bracelet
top // pants // heels // clutch // knot bracelet // wrap bracelet // earrings
And when you wear all white you need to do a little self tanning as to not look like Casper. This one is the best I’ve ever used- I swear by it (buy the mitt, it’s amazing and spreads everything evenly and leaves you with no tan palms!)
A few other options for you to consider….
