March 21st, 2015

Weekend greetings! It’s the start of Spring Break for me so I’m headed to Las Vegas for a few days of play time and to work on little projects around the fixer house too. Today it’s a round of featured spaces and projects spied around the web in the regular Best of the Blogosphere series, enjoy!

Don’t miss Nicole Gibbon’s beautiful Brooklyn brownstone makeover. (Full house tour at Lonny.)

Get the Look: Blue + White Pattern

March 19th, 2015

This spring Pantone’s Classic Blue is among the lineup of featured colors and in the latest House Beautiful Egyptian Blue was in the spotlight. The names for shades of blue are endless and the blue and white pairing is very on trend in both fashion and interiors, while block print, indigo dye, and shibori patterns continue to be popular in textiles.

The blue and white combo is a classic! Instead of simple solids, consider these fresh patterned favorites for decorating around your home this season:


blue and white for the home


splatter lamps / origami pillow / dreambirds vase / indigo octagon pillow / chinoiserie knob / bistro stool / geo tray and bowl / school of fish linens / scribble curtain / trellis plates / ayla pillow / medallion rug

You’ll hear no complaints from me, the blue and white pairing will always be a favorite!
