I'm feeling blue...

Hello friends!

I've been absent from the blog lately, but no matter how busy I get, you know I will always come back when I have a great photo to share.

I was laying on the beach down the shore and the color of the ocean against the bright sun looked (and felt) like heaven.

So I thought I'd bring heaven back to NYC.   Inspired by the colors on the beach I decided to (once again) paint my living room mirror.  This time I chose this fantastic blue color that reminded me of the ocean-- crisp and cool yet somehow warm and comforting. I think it looks really amazing with the sun-yellow forsythia.

.... and heavenly.

 So soothing.  Just perfect. Here are a few other versions of that color you might enjoy.

The Jersey Shore (always my inspiration)

Bedroom fireplaces

C o z y    B E D R O O M    f i r e p l a c e s...
Fireplaces. Always wanted one.  Unlike most people who want them in the living area I always wanted one in the bedroom-- my nest, my sanctuary, my haven.   
They add that unmistakable glow...
That extra detail...
That texture that comes with the surround whether it's wood, brick, stone, metal...

I leave mine on all day sometimes.  Write, eat, hangout in the bedroom-- why not? It's the ultimate cure for the end of winter blues...

...and, my dog enjoys it too!

Winter wonderland...?

Mmmm. Winter coziness. Who doesn't want cozy?
Hey I do. I do!
Especially now with me two weeks into having the flu. (Sniffle-sniffle. Cough-cough. Scream. Yell. Throw things. Punch a pillow. ) I'm just freaking out that I'm missing winter.
Yeah. That's right. I wanna enjoy the chill in the air, the fireplace crackling, hot tea, a cashmere blanket and a good movie or book without a tissue box and a fever. 
Hard to do because it's 60 degrees this weekend. Bleh.

I want another snow storm so I can catch snow flakes on my tongue!
Hold on a sec... maybe that's how I got the flu...nah. 

Sure I can't wait for spring.  But, now that I'm starting to feel better I just want a few more weeks of winter and all it's glorious-ness.

And now I'll stop whining.

Omayra Redmond is one talented artist...

And, proud to say she is my sister in law.   

She took the magazine photo you see above...And let it inspire...

...and unleash...

...the jaw dropping beauty of this! Omayra has transformed this bathroom! Her free-hand wall sketch that she painted (in gorgeous brown/blue color combo I might add!) created this custom wall mural.

What a great way to upgrade, customize a room! She's located in South Carolina, but does commission work anywhere in the country.  She'll be working on a large painting for my living room soon and of course it's going to be killer! I know she'll come up with something fab... whatever inspires her and I can't wait to add it to my art wall. I'm one lucky girl.

Worn, old, and beautiful

o  R  n     o    u   t a good way:)

When something is worn to perfection like this it just feels (and looks) right. I climb into these even if the dress code says no.  C'mon, they just scream rebel.

Worn wood island charms up this kitchen

Worn to perfection floors give the shiny mod chairs charm

How cool is that painted worn door? Or cabinet below?

Ahhh. These wood floors have my heart.

Old cobblestone

reclaimed brick

I always wanted to live in a renovated barn and keep the outside looking like this.

My fav jeans

Makes me want to add more books to my space

Great outfit.

I want this to be my bedroom door

Beautiful brick home that I hope nobody paints!

This is the kind of leather sofa that makes me want to curl up and stay home.

Nothing cooler than a worn leather jacket

I have to have these floors in my life
