COLOR CRUSH // you're making me blush

I've long had a penchant for blush tones, but lately I've been embracing muted pinks more than ever.  Maybe it's the coming of warmer days on the horizon and the budding blossoms popping up all around.  Or maybe it's just the usual marketing push for all things pastel during these early weeks of Spring.  Either way, dusty pink is having a major moment in my book. 

From faded corals, to muddied pinks with a hint of lavender, to the softest of peachy nudes, I'm loving it all.  Here are a few lovelies on my wish list...(aka, gimme all the pink!)


1. ashed wall art  // 2. rebecca atwood woven fabric // 3. heather taylor home tea towels // 4. farrow & ball paint - setting plaster  // 5.  susan connor ny taza cushion // 6. takara earrings // 7. cuyana mini tassel bag // 8. pink marble cheese trays

p. s.  I'm looking forward to making the recipe for that beautiful Lillet Rose Spring cocktail pictured above ;)

COLOR CRUSH // moody blues


It’s official.  I’m obsessed.  For the past several months, I’ve been drawn to anything and everything in deep and saturated blue-green hues.  I love complex colors - the ones that you can't really define and that are ever changing with the light and their surroundings. 


Farrow & Ball recently introduced Inchyra Blue (directly above, left) and it looks amazing.  I’m excited to try it as I've been dying to get a deep blue-green shade like it into a client’s home.  I’ve been a longtime fan of Farrow & Ball paints, having sold them and used them throughout my own home.  Renowned for their highly-pigmented, clay-based paints which are made in Dorset, England, their colors and wallpapers are often sought after by designers and interior enthusiasts.

Here’s a few other paint options that would be great to consider if you too, like me have fallen hard for this color: 

I'd love to hear if you've used any of these colors and what you think of them!
