taking color cue's from this beautiful vintage painting from Paris Hotel Boutique.

I love the yellow and coral color combination that can be pulled out of this painting. You can find these fun items here: wallpaper; stationary; ceramic bowl; elliptical lounge chair.


[adorable looks]

I'm loving the looks from the adorable UK line Plumo. All of their fashion and living accessories are scrumptious.


[style icon]

A while back a good friend asked me who my style icon was. I told her I wasn't sure. So she went through various fashionable ladies in Hollywood such as Knightly, Miller, Williams, etc. to see if any of their looks spoke to me. Many of them appealed to me but no one stood out as someone I could call an "icon". Now, however, I think I've finally found my style icon in famed interior designer Kelly Wearstler. Not only does she have impeccable taste when it comes to interiors, she's a fashion aficionado whose personal style really speaks to me. She always look fabulous with a hint of edge, glamorous and modern, just like her designs. I love her. Gorgeous, truly gorgeous.


[feeling patriotic]

A happy fourth to all!
