Color Story

Oh there is no better way to end a productive holiday weekend than watching a little eye candy on the red carpet in the comfort of your bed while eating some Ben and Jerry's with your 7 year old. Yes, that is how I watched the Golden Globes this year, no champagne girls gathering (will save that for the Oscars) or glamorous outfit of mine own, just bedded down enjoying the beauty of the evening with one of my favorite little persons...my how times have changed.
I am working with a new client on her new baby girl's nursery and a new big boy room for her son to transition into upon his baby sister's arrival. I have mentioned before but I will say it again, children's rooms are one of my favorite spaces to create. There are so many fun elements that you can incorporate into a little ones room not mention the array of colors that can be used.
Needless to say it has me seeing the world through rainbow colored glasses. No, not in a pyschedelic Pee Wee Herman kind of way (well maybe), but rather "a pop of color" here and there, make the world a better place to play.
I have this Matthew Williamson peacock scarf I adore as much as I do a peacock, the designer with his brilliance, and his use of splendid color. I wear it to pep up my blah winter blues and it makes me oh so happy. Maybe one day it will make me happy in my stairwell too, sigh. The kaftan an Elizabeth Taylor stunner too would do the trick, oh to have it all.
Hope this puts a little color in your otherwise monotone day.

Reese and Laura Dern got it just right with their red and emerald colors, simply stunning!

New Year

Happy New Year friends! 
It is hard to believe we are 8 days into the year 2012. I am considering tomorrow my first day of the New Year seeing as last week was a wash with no school until Tuesday, re-entry a little harsh, and a case of the holiday blues...as in for the first time in the last couple of years I was sad to see my children go back to school, husband to work, because we were having such a nice time together. Now it is alarm clocks, schedules, meetings, and packing lunches. I do a lot of running around town, so much in fact I sometimes make myself car sick with my own driving...hmm.
 Something I need to work on this year, slowing it down a bit, finding balance, and peace within. I have to wonder what this year will bring? With all the attention over the weekend surrounding Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge's 30th birthday tomorrow it just goes to show you exactly what can happen in one person's life over the course of a year. 
We will see, I already have a few little princes that have my heart and I like to think of myself as the queen of the house so what will be next...
