I ran across this in my inbox today from Chanel. You can virtually try on their new line of sunnies while sitting at home, in front of your computer. Just say yes to allowing Chanel to open your camera and you will be able to "try on" each of the... Continue reading

Yesterday's post highlighted the base five of my top ten books from 2017 and today I will be sharing my top five selections. Don't take the order of the books too seriously, because on any given day the line up might change. I'm fickle that way. But here are today's... Continue reading

I was saddened to see you too have recently lost a friend. It is definitely sobering and causes us to reflect again on our priorities as we are reminded that every day is to be relished. As for the weather, we had the furnace and fireplace going for the first time in three years. Brrrrr. I think our blood is definitely thinner. Now of the rest of me would go that route. 😁 Sent from my iPhone

Thank you for visiting Be Colorful or what is now, Be Colorful Coastal. The bedroom you are looking at was is from our home up north and was pulled together in 2014. The bed is from Robert Allen and is completely customizable. You can add tufting, choose the color of nail heads, add one row of nail heads, two rows, or none at all. There are also different headboard shapes. I have been really happy with the quality of that bed. You can find it here. They show it with the tufting but we went with a clean look. The bedding is from Bloomingdales and it was from the Hudson Park collection but has sadly been discontinued. I hope this was helpful. Have a great week. Pamela

Thank you for you thoughtful comment Libby. We are back up in Iowa. We had just put our home on the market here but I suspect it will take awhile to sell. We are fortunate to have it as a place to land. My husband is heading back later this week to work with adjusters, contractors, and yes exterminators. 😳. I'm so sorry to hear about your friends. That must be so devastating. My heart breaks for so many people. We are bruised but not broken and realize it could have been so much worse. Sent from my iPhone

I have been feeling good about how our living room is coming together. We started with the ebullient artwork that became my jumping off point and then added the blue and white trellis chairs, a neutral sofa, and the black console table. Now I was ready for the lamps. My... Continue reading
