Fabulous Friday Finds – Pink and Green Rooms

Posted by

On “Fabulous Friday Finds” I normally tell you about some of the latest and greatest accessories, furniture pieces and even fashion finds. Today, I thought it might be fun to show you some of my favorite (and fabulous!) rooms in this month’s color combo.

I love pink and green — it’s so girly! But it can be tricky to use the pairing in rooms without coming off as too casual or even childish. These rooms have got it right though! They feature pink-and-green pairings that are fresh and sophisticated. Don’t you love a cosmopolitan approach to designing with pink and green??

The Greenbriar Hotel, West Virginia – by the great Dorothy Draper.

White furnishings with a preppy striped background by Mary McDonald.

White lacquer and trellis?? Yes!!

Carolyne Roehm created a beautiful tablescape with these colors. What a gorgeous setting for entertaining guests!

Isn’t this a fun idea for a beach house or pool walkway?? [From Coastal Living]

Adding in the yellow is a nice refresher, too!!

Who wouldn’t want to host a luncheon here?

Check out my Pinterest Boards In the Pink and Green with Envy for more inspiration. Oh, and later this month I’ll be sharing my favorite pink and green paint colors! Stay tuned!

Fabulous Friday Finds: The Perfect Coffee Table

Finding the perfect coffee table is like creating the perfect centerpiece for a beautifully set table. It can anchor everything else in the room and often becomes the center of attention. So it’s pretty important to find one that packs a punch. While working on several projects, I’ve amassed a collection of a few of my favorite picks…Jacqui Coffee Table by Bungalow 5

Fabulous Friday Finds: Living the Lilly Life!

Posted by

If you haven’t already heard, our color combination of the month is flamingo pink and kelly green. No one combines pink and green quite like the fabulous Lilly Pulitzer!  In the 1960′s, the colorful iconic shift dress made Lilly Pulitzer become a household name. Now, the Lilly brand is “shift”ing into households! Lilly Pulitzer collaborated with Home Furnishings International on a furniture line and Lee Jofa on a fabric line. In fact, I found some Lilly pieces on recent market trips that I can’t wait to use in a project! Check them out on the “My Market Finds” Pinterest board.

Lilly Pulitzer has truly become one of the most recognizable lifestyle brands. And I can see why! Who wouldn’t love these happy pops of color??  Here are some of the great Lilly finds for home that I’m loving right now…

Fabulous Friday Finds…Father’s Day

Posted by

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so this weekend is the perfect opportunity to spend a little time searching for that perfect gift that says “Thanks Dad!”

As I think of all the things my father taught me, I’m reminded of how special and unique he is — just like your dad! That’s why I thought it might be fun to put together a list of the perfect gifts for every dad — no matter what their personality happens to be. Does one of these remind you of your dad?

For the techy dad…

An iPad is an obvious choice! If he already has this ultimate gadget, give him an iTunes gift card and he can download new apps and music.

For the dad who loves to hit the links…

Preloaded with 27,000 courses, the Garmin Approach S3 is a must-have for any dad who likes to tee up fun on the golf course. It displays yardage and evens lets them place pins. I know my husband would love this one!!

For the dad who’s mad about plaid…

Burberry is always in good taste, and what dad wouldn’t love to receive this checked belt?

For the sporty dad…

I love these striped board shorts from Vineyard Vines. They remind me of one of my favorite color combos — navy & pool!

For the dad who’s all about style…

Ok, maybe he loves “Top Gun” too… These new release Liteforce Aviator Ray-Bans are super styling, don’t you think?

Hope these ideas give you a jumpstart on the hunt for the perfect gift for dad!!

Studio Ten 25: Ruby & White Finds

Posted by

Ruby and White is my featured color combo of the month, so I thought today was the perfect time to share some great ruby-and-white finds from one of my favorite sources, Studio Ten 25. My good friend Abbe Fenimore is the owner of this fabulous online store. Much like myself, she is an interior designer and blogger. I have featured her store and some of her favorite selections several times because she always has tons of fun options. In honor of the three-day weekend, I thought I would share my top three ruby-and-white picks…

#1 Argyle Pattern Pillow

I love this argyle pattern pillow. The geometric diamonds give this classic motif a really contemporary look that is so fresh. Wouldn’t these spice up a white sofa??

#2 Heidi Red Crackle Lamp

A gourd lamp is always a great choice when adding accent lighting to a space. I love the unique juxtaposition between the square lampshade and the round base. 

#3 Red Hot Maze Wastebasket

  

What a bold and unexpected wastebasket! Don’t you love the stylized fretwork design?

I hope you enjoyed these three quick picks and that you have a super fun Memorial Day weekend!!
