Kate Spade Spring 2011

I love the Kate Spade Spring 2011 ads!  Bryce Dallas Howard is so vibrant ... I'd really never noticed how beautiful she was before. 


Pink and green and grown up?

Every now and then I find myself leaning green.  Not green as in "eco-friendly" (though I do have a conscience about that stuff), but incorporating green into my home decor scheme.

Not that I actually HAVE a current, cohesive scheme.  My apartment walls are painted partly pale pink.  That project stalled months ago, and I keep telling myself that with the warmer weather I will get back to it ... I truly will!

The question is this:  what will I DO with that pink to make sure it's crisp and feminine but not little-girl or candy-sweet?

The color is a sophisiticated pink, but with pink walls one has to be careful.

On the other hand, I once read where the editor of House Beautiful called it a "new neutral". 

These rooms give me hope that I can weave in other colors and make this pink work for me.   I'm especially keen on the rose/berry/lavender hues, all of which mesh well with green.

Just not TOO MUCH green. 

Know what I mean?

Lipstick-pink shoes: pick a pair (or two) ...

Seen at Making It LovelyKate Spade's Elena and Elaina shoes.

I like the classic Audrey style slipper, but the other style is an interesting twist on the Mary Jane. 

The color is GREAT!

What says "Summertime" for you?

Dream closet: pale pink!

Exquisite video: the wedding of Coco (Rocha) and James

As long as there are still people who believe in love and marriage, there will be beautiful weddings.  Some are just fancier than others.

The new old fashioned.

Big ol' roses, modern metal lamp.   I don't know why it works, but it does!

Rice is nice!

Out of Denmark, a cute-as-heck collection of domestic delights, this time from a company called Rice.

"This spring collection is just one happy statement from one end to the other -- a mix of rainbows, floral peace signs, love birds and a lot of kissing ... "

The older I get, the more I crave color.

The whimsical is welcome!

Shades of berry, magenta, pops of yellow, blue and red:  refreshing as summertime popsicles.


Ahhh, the pink fridge!  One day I'll have a pink fridge of my own.

Folkloric accents, always charming. 

Playing house for grown-ups!


Playful and pretty.


Camping, anybody?


Fun, fun ...


... FUN!

Scenes from designer Erin Fetherston's NYC apartment, as seen on Vogue.


This looks like a grown-up version of a girly-girl's little room.  A well curated version!

Lovely stuff.
