If any of you have read my ‘About’ page, you know that I love flea markets, so I wanted to start sharing some of the pieces that I have picked up from various flea markets and auction houses. When I walked in the door with this architectural element, I had mixed reviews from my critics.  First, my three-year old son asked me, “we climb on it Mommy?”  Then my husband asked me if I rippedRead More →

Image from Veranda After discovering all of these lovely images of white spaces, my newest design endeavor is to start bringing more white into my home.  While I loved the pale yellow that covers my walls when I chose it, it’s just not working for me now!  So my first step in this project, is going to be painting my foyer and family room walls a soft white, this is a huge undertaking considering IRead More →

“Pre-collection is all about need”, says Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz.  “It’s a bit like a very fancy supermarket”, he said.  That is exactly how he went about designing his 2015 Resort collection.  Easy to wear, with a savoir fair that only Lanvin can create.
