Friday’s Photo: Just Breathe

Well friends, the holidays are upon us whether we are ready or not. So no matter where you are with your decorating, shopping, baking or entertaining I want to use today’s Friday Photo as a reminder to just breathe.

I will be scrambling all weekend as we don’t yet have a tree, I haven’t bought a single gift and the decorations are all still tucked away in the basement….oh yeah, and then there is the cooking baking. I will start today with a very deep breathe indeed.

 

 

Friday’s Photo: Bespoke Global at ICFF

Even though BlogTourNYC was last May, I feel like it was just last month. Somehow, the time has just flown by.  Modenus and their sponsors have already taken another lucky group of bloggers to California (BlogTourCali) and as I write this post I’m sure another fabulous trip is already in the planning.

This photo, taken while touring the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) was from the Bespoke Global booth.  I love everything about this little vignette. The textures, the shapes and the different hues of neutrals. Also, what’s not to love about a Koi fish table?

Getting back to BlogTourNYC, I still have hundreds of images to go through and edit. Over the next few weeks I plan to dedicate my weekly Friday’s Photo to more fabulous products and design discovered while on the trip.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I will be in Providence Rhode Island taking an architectural color class with Teresa Tullio. As always, I’ll be sure to pass on any info that I think would be helpful to you my readers.

Who said downsizing has to be boring?  If it’s just the one or two of you isn’t this really all you need? A little table, a few chairs and a fabulous piece of art?

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Friday’s Photo: Vignette from the Hamptons

This week I had the good fortune of spending two days in the Hamptons, touring not one but two fabulous show houses; first the Hampton Designer Show House and then the Holiday House Hamptons Watchcase in Sag Harbor. I took so many photos of the designer rooms and I have so much to share with you. Check back early next week because my next post will show you how to bring show house style into your own home. You can do it just like the A-list designers did it in the Hamptons.

Here is my first tip: When displaying objects, use books to add height and interest.

Have a great weekend everyone!

 

Friday’s Photo: Rocking the color caramel

I’ve never been a big fan of caramel color walls until I toured the recently renovated  The printing House in New York City. It is a model unit designed by Scott Sanders. The rich caramel colored wall, a sculptural chair with a caramel, black and white seat and a stunning black and white portrait are pure perfection don’t you think?

Next week I’ll be showing more images from this inspiring space designed by Scott with more stunning art work and one very unique piece… Stay tuned!

 

American flag

I want to wish all my American friends a Happy 4th of July and share an image taken in Times Square while on BlogTourNYC. I took this out the window of a cab and the neon sign was actually advertising a Broadway show. At the exact moment I clicked the shutter the sign changed to an American flag. So appropriate don’t you think?

Friday’s Photo: Christopher Guy still life

Pretty little still life with a pop of color at the Christopher Guy show room during BlogTourNYC.

Have a great weekend and a great week everyone!

I am so excited because my husband and I are off for a week on Nantucket…one of my favorite spots on the planet. I am looking so forward to biking, hanging at the beach, walking around town and just relaxing. Be sure to follow me on Instagram next week and you’ll see why I love the island so very much.

Have a great weekend and a great week everyone!

 

Friday’s Photo: Beauty in between the seasons

Last weekend we took a day drive up to our land in New Hampshire.  It’s an odd time of the year up there; not quite Winter, not yet Spring. The skiers are gone, the hikers have not yet arrived, and it is barren, quiet and deserted. The hillside was covered with bare, dormant trees with just a few Evergreens here and there. As always, I was struck by the beauty…which almost made the 40 degrees temperature bearable…although not really.

Have a great weekend everyone and I hope Spring has arrived where you are. We are still waiting.
