Purple and Pink ... can you do it?

As you know I am working on Mandy's Bedroom ... a teenage girl that still loves purple ... well, don't even think she is talking about the Bubble Gum Pink or Barney Purple of most three and four year olds' dreams ... Pink has grown up ... perhaps it has always been grown up and I am just seeing it for the first time and Purple has taken on an extremely sophisticated attitude!

Check these beautiful pink and purple hues ...

And even the most manly of men will not be threatened by these purple hues ... 

I know, it is just Thursday ... but have a wonderful weekend!  My cousin and her husband are coming up to visit New England!  Don and I will be enjoying all the sight seeing and mostly their company!  Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday!



Oliver Gagnère ... and an Apology!

First ... I must apologize to Madeline WeinRIB ... yesterday in my post featuring some of her fabulous rugs I referred to her as Wein"rob"!  Traveling for me is a bit upsetting ... I am kind of a routine girl.  At my parents' house we have no wi-fi.  I set up office in the local Starbucks at 6:30 am to get my start on the day.  I also have a favorite table ... yesterday, someone took my table ... you can see the havoc that began to have on my day.  So, Madeline, please understand  .... I was out of sorts!!!

On to today ... it is a cloudy, blackish morning ...  this room is calling me in ...

It is warm and bright ... full of color, but very calm ... I'm a huge fan of the orange and lavender together ... along with the art layered on the mirror. Cool gray walls, but lots of texture to make it cozy.  The room has swagger!

Hope everyone is mentally preparing for a wonderful Thanksgiving ... be safe and happy ... and most of all, Thankful!!
