Exuberance!






Sometimes I feel like being dramatic...
Going over the top can be amazingly freeing whether in dress, garden, cuisine or decor....
Letting go of what contains you - brushing off the cobwebs and going for broke - pushing the envelope!
Here are a few examples that personify
EXUBERANCE....I hope they inspire you too!

Peacock exuberance....



Sass and Bide exuberance on the runway


Dining exuberance....

Custom leather exuberance....

Stairway exuberance via Kelly Wearstler...

Kelly Wearstler frame exuberance...



Hair exuberance all via Kelly Wearstler


Old school exuberance via Parish Hadley...
Note the chevron floor and stool side table....
What's old always becomes new again except hopefully that hideous flower arrangement and mini blinds!


Car stereo exuberance....

Mirrorball exuberance....Cielo NYC...

Bling exerburance...

Bath exuberance...

Robert Stone architectural exuberance...


Shag exuberance....
No words for this one....except yo gabba gabba?


So here's to being a little "off" this holiday weekend!

Laduree Cherie!

Today I'm thrilled to announce that one of my favorite Paris stops
is coming to Madison Ave NYC! 
Cannot even explain how excited I am....




Every trip to Paris has found me ogling the windows of the St. Germain and Champs Elysee shops and I end up lugging back the subtle strawberry candles (my favorite!) and gifts in masse! 





Laduree London

The attention to detail is what stops me in my tracks as everything is exquisitely packaged and presented....






Let's all eat cake!!

Now if I could just get them to come to Connecticut.....

Orange You Gonna Try Orange?

One of my favorite "neutrals" is the versitile ORANGE....
Juicy and full of FLAVA Orange brings with it a pop of color and punch of pizazz. 


Whether the interior is modern or traditional, orange
can be pals with Chocolate, Pink, Charcoal,
Green, Turquoise and Blues of all hues!   

The calmer cousin of red, orange brings warmth and sunshine into a space instantly and makes the vibe fresh. 

Here are some of my favorite orange spaces and things.  Hopefully it will give you ideas of how to add a little ORANGE
to brighten your day!
