Pattern & Color at the 2015 SAG Awards

The SAG Awards red carpet was a colorful one with brights, patterns, and some winter white.  A few of my favorites, had me thinking of inspiration into home design and decor.  Lupita Nyong'o was my best dressed in a floral, striped Elie Saab. I also enjoyed Rashida Jones in Ungaro, Julianne Moore in an emerald Givenchy, and Keira Knightley in a royal purple Erdem.  Who were your best dressed?

Statement Mirrors on a Budget

With the new year upon us, it’s natural to get the urge to update your diet, closet and home decor.  In my new January Houzz Ideabook, I posted on a simple and often inexpensive way to update your home decor: a statement mirror. Mirrors provide a visually interesting piece for the room and are collectors items to be used, often from one style or room to the next. Check out my Ideabook for 20+ options - all under $100 each!

Underwater in Punta Cana

When on vacation last month, we went off the resort one day for a happy hour snorkeling catamaran excursion. I bought us a disposable underwater camera that was fun to use and brought me back to the pre-digital camera days.  We finally got the photos developed, and while some are better than others, a few came out great!  Here are some snaps from above and under water in Punta Cana.

Kate Spade Saturday x West Elm

When I saw the announcement late last year for Kate Spade Saturday's collaboration with West Elm, it was just a tease of an image from their Twitter page. Now the full line is out, and it includes furniture, bedding, pillows, art, and other home pieces.  My favorites are the floral duvet cover (if only DC would allow this!) and the round boxes that are perfect for storing items like jewelry but are decor pieces, as well.  I love how artistic the line is in the fabric patterns and shapes - so colorful & cheery too!

Get the Look: Emma Stone @ The Golden Globes 2015

There were some beautifully dressed ladies at the Golden Globes last night. My faves were Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone.  Emma looked gorgeous, fun and age-approp in this Lanvin jumpsuit. I love that she kept the accessories minimal, and even didn't mind the bow.  Here is how to get a similar look for less, starting with these tuxedo pants - a steal from Madewell!
