color

As you can see from my other posts, I am obsessed with color these days, particularly blue, but it hasn't always been this way. I used to coordinate my outfits with black, more black, and a little heather gray here and there. Well all of a sudden I did this 360 and I can't get enough color!

I just came to a conclusion and the reason for this sudden change is that Karl (Lagerfeld, that is) said that it was time for color. Just look at these stunning outfits for Fall 2012, I seriously love Chanel.

I know today is the first day of summer and I just skipped a whole season, but let's be honest, fall is the most fashionable season.

kelly wearstler

I almost died over the Kelly Wearstler collection on One King's Lane today. I am kind of obsessed with her and I have been for quite a while. When I lived in Los Angeles, my boss was invited to a "ladies who lunch" party held in her backyard. The house wasn't even accessible, but I still wanted to know every detail. One of the items on my bucket list is to go to every hotel that she has designed, thankfully they are in pretty fabulous places...like this one, the Viceroy in Anguilla.


It looks amazing!

my own piece of the plaza

This past Sunday, Joe and I met his parents at the Scott Antique Market here in Atlanta. The market is only open once a month and I still cannot believe how amazing it was. The one thing that we got at the market were two of these amazing lamps. 


The best part of these lamps is the story behind them...their original home was in The Plaza Hotel. Considering that Joe and I both lived in New York for several years and met there, I love that the Big Apple is now tied into our home, by way of the most beautiful New York hotel, nonetheless.

more color

I was informed that I forgot to include the bedroom color. This is what I am thinking...

color crisis

I am having a serious color crisis. I feel like I need to go ahead and pick out all the paint colors before I make a final decision about any of the colors. And since my mother won't go on Pinterest and look at my ideas, I am going to write them out for her plain and simple. Here you go, Anne...

Living Room

wall color

with this side table on either end of the couch

Office

wall color

Guest Room

maybe classic gray walls in the guest room

and then I can use one or two of these

And last, but not least...I love these lamps and they are by a NC company, so I think I have to have them.


Now you have no excuse. xoxo

time flies

Gosh, May just flew by! And unfortunately, I did not get a lot of work done around the house. Instead, I went to Kansas City, MO for the International Quilt Market with work. This wasn't as scary as it sounds, because our booth was the most amazing thing I have ever seen and as I have mentioned previously, I love all of our fabrics!

Anna Griffin & Blend Fabrics booth

The next weekend, I headed to Asheville (without Joe) to attend my little sister's wedding...my sorority little sister, that is! She was beautiful and they are such a wonderful couple! To add to the fun, my favorite cousin is my grandlil, so here is a little sorority family picture!!! It makes me so happy!!

Tess, Kristen, and me
Hopefully I can get some house work done, so that I can share the process soon.
