1. I am loving this year’s spring 2012 RTW collection by J. Mendel.  Color blocked modern with its simplistic lines, but still elegant, chic and sexy.  Varied in colors from bright yellows, blues to medium and light greens, to nudes and blacks and whites.

2. How fun is this tea-pot (Mayfair) in bright yellow with contrasting black and white stripes. It’s part of the “PS Stripe Collection” by Paul Smith.  To find out more about his designs, please visit the website @ http://www.paulsmith.co.uk

Happy Anniversary | One Year of Blogging

It has been one year this month I started blogging.  I never thought in my wildest dreams I would be doing this.  Me, nope, nada. And write a blog even less. But, while reading design blogs I realized how happy and passionate these bloggers where writing about what they love.  I love design too! so I though to myself, self why not? How great would it be just to write (mind you, I am not a pro writer) about beautiful interior spaces and products that I love. So I did just that. I posted my first post. Great! Ah see that didn’t hurt. Then the next, and next.  And then I realized copy write laws. Uh yes.  You could say I stopped blogging and started researching and came across Design Sponge website.  I found all the information (Biz Ladies section )I was looking for and highly recommend it to any person starting a design or any other blog.  Needless to say,  you’re the editor of a blog as soon as you hit the publish button and you need to know the rules.

This will be my 59 post for this year and having several dozen under my belt by far doesn’t make me a pro at this, but I can definitely say I have a little more confidence. :)  I hope to inspire you this coming year as you all have inspired me.  Thank You!

Here’s a little gold and sparkle to set the mood and inspiration for the new year Cheers!!

{Yay one year}
