While scrolling through my cell phone photos last night I spotted these two images almost next to one another. Both were taken while on vacation in Arizona. The photo on the left was taken on our drive back from the Grand Canyon and the one on the right is a detail shot of a vase taken through an art gallery window.

It’s always interesting to discover how artists find inspiration. I wonder if the artist of the vase has spent a lot of time looking at cloud formations. Pretty cool don’t you think?
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.
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.
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 Watchcasein 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.
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!
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?
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.
