Panetone recently named Tangerine Tango as the 2012 color of the year. This saturated hue first caught my eye on the Spring 2012 runway. I especially admire it paired with pink or minty blue. It's such a happy color! clockwise: 1 • 2 • 3 • 4 Continue reading

This week wraps up holiday decorating for our clients. This will be the 5th house, not including my own (if I can muster any more energy/creativity/cheer) so I've decided to share a few little "nuggets" on trimming the tree. 1. If your tree is real, low lying branches and heavy... Continue reading

I've wanted a tattoo for years. My dad and I were supposed to go get them together 5 years ago... he went for it and I backed out at the last minute. I couldn't land. There was no way I could commit to one, very permanent image. Thanks to Tattly,... Continue reading

After blogging about this coveted spot a while back, I got to experience The Dry Bar Dallas over Labor Day weekend with some girlfriends. What a treat! Everything from the paper goods (above) to the head massage was a chic experience. We sipped mimosas, thumbed through magazines and watched a... Continue reading

Designer Abigail Ahern has a bathroom unlike any other. A space that is totally radical, magical and yet completely functional. "Playing it safe is boring, and if our homes are where our hearts are why on earth would we want to live in places barely decorated or feel so much... Continue reading

My dearest friend just accepted a marriage proposal and the planning has already begun! If there is one thing she is sure about (besides her future husband) its peonies. And who can blame her? They are one of the most romantic blooms I've ever seen. Continue reading

Its pretty disappointing to check in on a blog to find that it hasn't been updated. In a month. Ouch. In my defense, it has been a very eventful summer. Work has been slammed. Although it can be stressful, I'd rather be slammed over sitting on my hands. And between... Continue reading

Jeffrey Allen Marks can be a little sterile for my taste, but I really love seeing his home every week on Million Dollar Decorators. Although small, his space is clean, tailored, and sophisticated. My favorite moments? The kitchen and that master bathroom... gorgeous. Continue reading
