Ruthie Sommers wants me to move to Paris

I've loved Ruthie Sommers since I saw her in Domino with that famous raspberry Lee Jofa La Fiorentina fabric. This article about her in Lonny makes me love her even more.

 The green with white chair rail and crisp black and white graphic art is lovely.

I love that she says clients should be the stars as opposed to the celebrity designers.

This is my favorite- she's won me over- I"ll move to Paris. :)

Happy New Year's Eve, peeps!

Package in the mail

I got something in the mail the other day...

It was a package of little glittery birds! My darling sweet Momma sent them to me! They're ornanments and they are adorable!

You see, I have a Christmas Tree with all the trimmings waaaaay back in my storge unit (that unit is the bane of my existance). All my baubles are copper and eggplant purple or sparkly silver- and then there are the birds. Yes, those funny feathery birds you clip on to the tree branches... I have those an LOVE them! Anyway, Since we couldn't put a tree up this year (we don't have the space in this teeny temporary apartment nor the desire to dig through our storage unit), Momma sent me these perky tiny birds for some fun decoration. I keep thinking putting them in a wreath or hanging them from the ceiling with fishing line as a mobile in a corner would be so sweet. I better hurry up- I'm running out if time (whyisthisyearflyingbysofast?Idonthavetimeforanything!!!!!)!

Just wanted to share my sweet birdies! I'll post a pic if/when I get them up. :)

Thanks, Mommy!

Swimming in an ocean...

I think I'm love with blue right now.  

That dress is perfect for a holiday party! I found it when googling "ocean blue draperies," ha ha. I guess ocean blue and draping were key words?

Also, I did this blue velvet sofa with citrine pillows and zebra run (and IS THAT A MARBLE OR MALECHITE TABLE?!?!?!) from Nick Olsen's blog.

Such a royal color, that blue, don't you think?

Redd all over

Oh I just saw this fantastic article/interview of Miles Redd and I'm just mesmerized- he is wonderful. 

Read it.

Look at the pictures. 




Strong and Happy Girls

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." — Audrey Hepburn

I love that! Inspirational quote lead to an inspirational room design:
