Friday Snip - It's!

Some weeks are full of stuff, just stuff ... no news there!  And then some weeks are filled with the things I love ... design!  This was a pretty good one!

1.  Nothing Better than Dorothy Draper. BRASS.  BIG. HARDWARE.
2.  I picked my Montauk Daisies because of the threat of a freeze.  I killed them They lasted a day.  I guess I got to see them a little more inside?
3. A little fabric love zhushing up a PB Duvet!
4.  Custom Fortuny light.
5.  The Whole Blue and White Thang.  Thought this one was beautiful.
6.  Death Stare.  "Take us outside. NOW!"
7.  Gorgeous "fern" Stark carpet ... for a stair runner.
8.  I am still on the Chevron Bus.  Gorgeous Linens.
9.  Check Engine Light On.  Trying to Ignore it.

TGIF!  We'll be drinking wine a little earlier this weekend ... I hate the time change.  

Making the World More Beautiful.  One Room at a Time.



Black and White ... In Color!

Black and White always seems to feel Right.  In Fashion and Design.

It is Fresh ...

It is like an old friend ... 

It is Classic ... 

The Drab Age is over. Color is coming into its own again. 
Until very recently people were literally scared out of their wits by color. 
Perhaps this was a hangover from our Puritan ancestors.
 But whatever the reason, brown, grays and neutrals were the only shades considered 'safe.' Now we know that lovely, clear colors have a vital effect on our mental happiness. 
Modern doctors and psychiatrists are convinced of this!
Dorothy Draper

Black and white has staying power ... whether we are in a "neutral" phase or a "color" phase.
 It never fails.

"Black and White" is one of my favorite Colors!!
