We are taking a break!
 Do not fret!  We will be back once we throw put our kids back on that big yellow bus, until then...

We hope you have a fabulous summer, friends!

Slim Aarons
A brilliant photographer
capturing the life of jet-setters...
Or as he said, "photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places."
His art framed definitely adds a Palms Springs-Old Hollyood vibe.
I'm thinking I need to add this to my collection! 
You can purchase your own copy here. 

Maybe we just have summer fever! We are ready for some fun in the sun! How about you?
Hope you have fabulous weekend with lots of sunshine and hopefully a pool nearby!

Everyone likes to have their personal space look nice!  Having a beautifully made bed is always a good place to start! They are the last thing you see when you go to bed and the first thing you see when you wake up! How do you like your bed made?

Do you like to use simple white linens....

but add a little somethin'... somethin' at the foot of the bed? I always think simple white linens are a great backdrop for either a brightly colored throw, a luxurious fur or a classic colored blanket!
Do you like to add some bold color to you personal space...
combining different patterns and textures?
Of course, you know what I am going to say here. Surprisingly enough, my linens are white for now. Crazy, huh?  Color girl going white....

What about you?

Not really a green couch... Green Couch Interior Design!

While perusing blogs last week I hopped on over to Katie Denham's blog, katiedid. She just visited the San Francisco Decorator Showcase and shared the amazing work of, you guessed it, Green Couch  with us. I'm so glad she did!!

Just look at that chair! The rug is pretty spectacular in itself.  Hmm, did he have the mirror custom made to match the design on the rug?! 
Ostrich on the bar stools and finished with nailhead trim... I'll take 4 please!
So you can fully appreciate the transformation, here's the before!

Here's a kitchen I'd love to see come to life! Nancy from Marcus Design dreamed up this brilliant design.   
Another stunner! This kitchen was created by Barbara at Hodge Podge
 Nancy and Barbara were the winners of AyA's BlogPodium kitchen contest and it's easy to see why! 
Feel free to come on over and install one of these designs at my house.  Really, I'd take either one!  
I'm not picky.  My address is ....oh, well just email me and we'll work out the details!

I am totally obsessed with the dynamic design duo, John Loecke & Jason Oliver Nixon! Here is just a little taste of their amazing talent-
They have no fear of color and the element of surprise in each room makes my heart sing! The way the they mix patterns in this room is nothing short of magic! 
Love the classic plates hanging on the mod wallpaper.  I think I need that fern fabric!
The magic of mixing patterns once again comes alive on the dining room chairs! Bold graphic patterns, classic toile and stripes- who would have thunk?
How many colors can you count in this room?
No words for the love of green here.....amazing!

What do you guys think? Is it just me? I am in love...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Red, White & Blue..predictable, we know, but we are embracing our patriotic spirit!

We hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
On a more serious note, my dad fought in the war to protect our country, he came home.
Sadly many did not. 
We honor, remember and give thanks to the men and women that fought and gave their life for our freedom.

 a milestone birthday with your childhood BFF's, where should you go?
The Dream Downtown Hotel in New York City, of course!
No need to fret about finding the hotel on the busy streets of NYC, a huge steel facade riddled with port holes is not the norm anywhere!
Watch out...You have just entered hipster territory!  Make sure you have some tissues to wipe the drool from your chin as you enter the hotel lobby and see these killer metallic beauties!
As if the metallic eye candy was not enough, check out this mind-blowing light display!
Don't worry if you are having trouble picking out your favorite thing about their rooms, it's close to impossible!  Seriously, is it the steel graphic wall...
 the swanky rug paired with the animal hide ottoman....
 or the unbelievable art work that graces the walls?
 Make sure you share a drink at the pool bar and chat with the ever so friendly wait staff.

Add the best company a girl could ask for, a few sassy black outfits....
and you have the PERFECT weekend!
