Miranda Brooks for amazing landscape design inspiration. You can view all her lovely projects here.
Kelly Behun. Curious to see even more of these bold interiors, I checked out her site. Full of fresh, hip inspiration, here are some stand outs from Kelly Behun Studio. According to New York Magazine, Kelly is working on a new furniture line. No doubt these will be as sexy and fun as her interiors...
Pure Green Magazine, after a friend of mine sent me the link weeks ago. She thought I would enjoy the beautiful photography, and she was totally right! I fell hard for this feature on Babylonstoren, a hotel/winery in the South Aftrican Dutch Cape. Lazy weekend, lounge chair travel was exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries for the upcoming busy weeks ahead. Whether you're spending this day lounging, traveling or a bit of both, hope your having a lovely Memorial Day!
Sorting With Style was a great little pick me up. And, exactly the motivation I needed to get my crazy desk into some kind of working order again. Chic black pencils with bright faux gems on the end of each one, a hot pink calculator, cute mini ceramic shopping bag...these are just a few of the whimsical ways that Sorting With Style can help you zhush up your office space...thanks Sorting With Style for making my day!

Jill Goldberg and Hudson Interiors" note to self. A procrastinator at heart, that's exactly what I did next. "Jill Goldberg and her team bring a youthful exuberance along with a fresh take on interiors to every project", this is from Hudson's site . I can tell you first hand that Jill brought this same energy to Hearst Tower, when she came and spoke on the House Beautiful panel on Tuesday. With many of these exact images floating behind her as she spoke, it's no wonder I wrote this urgent note to self.
Blogfest 2012 has ended, I thought I'd share a quick recap with my Instagrams. Meeting and connecting with fellow bloggers is always the best. The first night at the Kips Bay Showhouse, I got to chat with several ladies that I was hoping to connect with, but sadly not everyone. Day two started bright and early at Hearst Tower. Listening to top tier magazine editors give engaging presentations along with some of the most dynamic personalities in the design world was an incredible treat. I plan to blog about some of these talents soon. That morning there was also a short film about the event's sponsor, Kravet. The film illustrated the company's origins. An immigrant "American dream" story that personally, as a first generation American, really touched me. Kravet, a family based company with it's vast amount of product lines simply amazes me. Next we were off to the Elle Decor Concept House, and then impossibly in the same day, the Decoration and Design building (the D+D). There was a delicious spread for lunch and then we were treated to a truly entertaining and talented guest speaker: Alexa Hampton (seated on the left in the image below along with Traditional Home's EIC, Ann Main). Alexa, my new designer crush, is basically the coolest. She should have her own talk show. Shortly after, with the luxury of not living too far from the city, I took off and joined everyone again the following day at the Museum of the City of New York, where Glassybaby's founder, Lee Rhodes, gave a touching presentation about the company's products and mission. Lee, officially became my entrepreneur crush. Blogfest kept us busy and inspired to say the least, thanks for another great event!
Pretty Pink Tulips and Bright, Bold and Beautiful, just to name a few!
Pink Flamingo post, led me to discover the vibrant artwork of Nancy Ramirez and her hip site, Cozamia. In my search for attractive pink flamingo examples, I stumbled across the image above on Pinterest (of course!) Once I tracked it down to Ms. Ramirez, I was hooked. Each and every print is right up my ally. In fact, there was at least one or two pieces that I recognized from beautiful interior features I had seen in publications or on blogs, thus sealing the fact that I'm officially and utterly obsessed with Cozamia.
Jo Malone Orange Blossom, I'm loving the idea of a more portable perfume. I've never owned a solid scent...thinking the blood orange aroma along with the clever packaging of Tocca Stella, make for one compelling want!
