BLUE AND BROWN. Anyone else like this combination? I have always loved it and been drawn to any space, wallpaper or fabric that uses this oh so pretty palette. Throw in some pretty blue and white china or pottery and you have a sensational looking room. The last wallpaper is Zoffany's
Gustavius, which I love and have the sample of is something I hope to use somewhere!! So a few "inspirations" that I thought were especially pretty. I think this could be a beautiful colorway for a boys room too. Thoughts?
MONOGRAMMED GOODIES. You know how I love my monograms, can never have enough. The Elegant setting whose beautiful things have graced a few of my posts was kind enough to send me some pictures of other things they have been doing....and I thought they were all worth sharing! So many beautifully monogrammed goodies! Love the throws, all the assorted bags and of course great monogrammed towels. They have a great selection of monogram styles. Great gift ideas too and in all price ranges. Hard to pick a favorite..they are all so pretty! Click here to visit their site.
A FABULOUS GETAWAY. Yes, I do have vacations and getaways on my mind. But for now that's as far as its going...in my mind! We can't go away with so much happening with the house, so for now I travel virtually! We were at the One and Only Ocean Club in the gorgeous Bahamas years ago and it was every bit the elegant, beautiful and serene place I wanted it to be. We had a marvelous time. I have a sudden yearning to go back. If you have kids in tow, The nearby Atlantis is the place to go, but if you are fortunate enough to get away as adults for a few days, then this place is heaven. Though there are kids, its a quieter hotel than the circus like but fun, atmosphere of Atlantis and kids might find it boring. Don't take my word for it, think the pictures say it all!
GORGEOUS FRENCH CHAIRS. Whats the next best thing to a gorgeous French chair? Getting it for a GREAT deal and I do mean GREAT!
