I was debating whether I should post about the Emmys since so many people do it but the color was too hard to resist.  I think this was the best dressed red carpet I’ve seen in a while too.  Yellow was the lucky color and everyone who wore it won an Emmy including Julianne Moore […]

  I have a weakness for a spring chartreuse-y green color and Todd Alexander Romano‘s room is punctuated with fabulous pops of the color against aubergine walls. Not sure if you can tell in the photos but there is even an aubergine trim from Samuel & Sons along the edge French Empire chair upholstery. You […]

I figured if people were going to be pinning my pictures on Pinterest, I might as well create my own boards.  So far I’ve only uploaded my favorite color posts but there will definitely be more to come.  Bon Weekend!

Mellow Yellow

01 . 09 . 12

Even though Pantone has declared Tangerine Tango the color for 2012, I still think yellow is going to be just as big.  From shades resembling an egg yolk to pale lemon, it’s bright and cheerful yet chic. Yellow and black usually reminds me of a bubble bee or Steelers uniform, but it’s starting to grow […]

Minty Fresh

10 . 20 . 11

I’ve had the minty color of the coat above that Tommy Ton photographed during fashion in my head for weeks.  I used to associate it more with spring but I’m loving it all year long now.  J.Crew has many pieces in this chic color in their new catalog so now we can easily add it […]

Color My World

01 . 25 . 11

The biggest trend on the Spring/Summer 2011 runways was color.  Not just a little color but bright, bold, beautiful hues that will shake up your world.  After this brutal winter, I can’t think of anything I want to wear more than cheerful colors.  There are many interior designers who embrace color in their work like […]

Green is Good

01 . 10 . 11

I thought it was interesting that Pantone chose Honeysuckle, a pink shade, as their Color of the Year for 2011.  The color that keeps catching my attention in both fashion and design is green.  It ranges from peacock to emerald but looks elegant and interesting in every shade.  I already bought a satin envelope clutch […]

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m posting all my favorite green images. And what better place to start than with a bar since most everyone will spend the day drinking. Not just any bar mind you but the cameo Bar at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica designed by Kelly Wearstler. Kelly said she […]

Petrol

02 . 23 . 10

Many years ago, I bought a fabulous pair of Anya Hindmarch shoes in London and the color was called Petrol. The color is a blue/green/turquoise and the name comes from the word for gasoline in the UK. It seems rather fitting then that the British couple, Christopher and Suzanne Sharp, who own The Rug Company […]

Pretty in Plum

12 . 29 . 09

I’m busy traveling back to New York today but I’m not leaving you without something to savor. I love the pretty plum color in all of these images regardless of whether it’s a sofa, wall color, or just a little bouquet of flowers. Hope you enjoy them too!

Color Me Happy!

08 . 25 . 09

I forgot to ask owner Stephen Saunders why his store is called The End of History. A more appropriate name would be The End of the Rainbow or maybe Died and Gone to Glassware Heaven! The shop is a treasure trove of vintage glass, ceramics and furniture from the 1950’s and 60’s. Much of the […]
