outdoor rooms 20

Longer days and warmer nights invite us to spend more time outdoors…breakfast in the garden, dinner on the veranda, cocktails under the stars, or perhaps a midnight dip in the pool…may these tranquil and beautiful outdoor rooms sweep you off your feet (and into a comfy hammock or chaise lounge!)

invitation only!

On 10/1/12, I received an invitation from Darryl Carter to attend a private gathering on Thursday evening 10/25/12 celebrating the launch of his new boutique/design studio and new book The Collected Home! To say I was elated beyond words is an understatement! I leave for Washington DC bright and early tomorrow morning to embark on an adventure I’m sure I’ll remember for a lifetime…I promise to bring back exclusive photos and personal insights from this very special event…until then, please enjoy this sneak peek of wares from the new boutique published in the October 2012 issue of Elle Decor…imagine being greeted by this magnificent bronze lion? I already have butterflies in my tummy…

Waxed terra-cotta floors welcome barefoot living…Moroccan rugs and Bedouin cushions adorn the open-air courtyard, perfect for yoga practice or for relaxing by the warmth of a roaring fire…the artful homeowner of this desert oasis? French shoe designer Christian Louboutin! What a sensitive contrast to his fast paced city life! He must be in love with the warm golden light…just looking at the first image slows my pulse and puts my mind at ease…I hope this post offers you some peace and beauty this afternoon

first impressions

the foyer is our interior world’s first impression…whether we’re greeted by an artful staircase or a beloved work of art, we experience a taste of what’s to come…an amuse-bouche, if you will, to whet our appetites…bon appetit!

Whether it’s used as a bold statement or an artful accent, these interiors illuminate yellow’s power to transform a space and lift our mood!

“The color of an egg yolk from a chicken that dined on marigold petals” ~ Susan R. Stein, curator of Monticello describing the chrome-yellow shade which was applied to the dining room around 1815, only six years after it was invented in France
