Little Things That Make a Difference

I love a little silver tray in the bathroom with Molton Brown products on top - It looks rich as does throwing a waterbopttle on top of one as Carolyne Roehm did.

Carolyne Roehm preps the guest room
I use these to store the mail that otherwise sits there and looks hideous in my foyer - the turquoise is my favorite.

Camp Colors

I have been obsessed with Camp since I started going at age 4.. My two favorites were Camp Rapputak in Maine (which sadly is no longer) and Lake Bryn Mawr in Honesdale PAand I can't deny that if I could go back I would. The color combinations stuck with me and whenever I see them in a room I get the warm and fuzzies. Camp Rapputak was Copen (light blue) and Navy (which as they said went together like potatoes and gravy) and for Lake Bryn Mawr it was green and gold (which lasts forever) . What is your favorite color combination?

Hue by Kelly Wearstler

Last night I popped by the Kelly Wearstler Party to buy her new Limited Edition book Hue. My eyes thanked me but I need a few more hours to absorbe it. Kelly could not have been sweeter. I unfortunately only had a few minutes and then raced downstairs to the Premier of It's Complicated which I LOVED!!!!!!!! BTW Lake Bell has the best body I have ever seen ! She was wearing a purple Narcisso dress and bright pink lipstick called Funny face from Nars. Sorry to go off on a tangent. What is your favorite decor book?

I always need a good inspiration wall near me at all times. I just ordered 3 more cork boards spray painted white from Art Concepts

I found this instilation at a casting call office and fell in love with it! I miss Polaroid.

This is my inspiration board from my office - always a work in progress.
