interiors: "a gorgeous choreography of antique, french deco and mid-century", domino february 2007

This weeks interior, is the home of Perry and Laura Vinroot Poole, he is an architect and she is the owner of a fashion-forward boutique... and I love, love, love their renovated 1959 ultramodern home! With the help of interior designer Barrie Benson, the decor is a marvelous blend, well a blend of delicious worldly goodness; Chinese sofa, Moroccan rugs, French 40's, and clean-lined Scandinavian pieces all playing stunningly well with the mod glam pieces.

Can you say swank-a-licious?

The fabulousness of this home speaks for itself, and this closet, hello?! It is my dream space.

fab find: python

One of the perks of Fall/Winter dressing, has to be animal inspired patterns and texture. Even though Python is on the lips of all those in the fashion know for 2011, the truth is, Python makes an appearance every season... Sea of Shoes


Just Cavalli
Etsy WDS Collectibles

which thrills me beyond belief since I have a collection of Python goodies in my closet. Starting with a red Python jacket I purchased 11 years ago, three pairs of boots, a belt, a couple of clutches, but I think I have to have the one above!

Python is not only hot on the streets, it is hot in the home as well.

love, love these!

style board: pantone color report fall 2011, phlox guest room

I decided to tackle Phlox today from the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2011. I wanted to get it over with since purple's are my least favorite colors, but I managed to get through it...

a little boho and a little glam. All the while remaining simple with warmth and texture.

interiors: lone star seed co., elle decor september 2011

This week's stunner is an old building in San Antonio that once housed a seed co., it has since been transformed into a spectacular home...

with a mix of styles, funky mod interspersed with dainty antiques and an amazing collection of art, this home has character, lots of character.

The texture of the walls and floors; plaster, aged wood, concrete and tiles, combined with the luxe velvet, love, love, love!

If I had to label the style, I would have to go with Paris Industrial.

Hello gorgeous!

And the piece de resistance, the screened-in porch, se magnifique!

friday musings: the weekend

I am looking forward to spending Saturday with my fabulous friend Lu, it's been three weeks since we last spent some quality girly time together and we have much to catch up on! photo: Etsy DigitalDivas

We will be spending the first half of the day at Denver Pet Expo providing valuable information on all the fabulous horses up for adoption at the Colorado Horse Rescue. Then the rest of the afternoon we will be at CHR attending the Open House and volunteer BBQ.

Then, well, who knows, it is still Summer in Rockies...

Have a great weekend!

food for thought: sorry erika, coconut pineapple ice cream ;)

It's been a slow week in the kitchen, as far as "new" dinner creations go; delicious Tuscan BBQ Ribs last weekend, Mediterranean Tuna, spaghetti at the neighbors...and Dryers Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream! An oh so tasty and creamy vanilla ice cream with chunks of pineapple and flakes of coconut, a veritable textural party in your mouth! But hurry, it is a limited edition jewel.

style board: pantone color report fall 2011, deep teal dining room

This weeks color from the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2011 is the deeply dramatic and gorgeous Deep Teal...

I however took a more playful approach. A stylish contemporary dining room with a bit of a beachy feel. I visualized a red bucket in the sand used to make sand castles with a deep teal ocean as the backdrop...

interiors: a fresh and comfy cottage, house beautiful january 2009

With shades of white and ocean blues, this cottage is fresh and peaceful...

then throw in the warm neutral tones and textures and it becomes downright cozy!

A stylish mix of Caribbean colonial, contempo casual, throw in a dash of mod with plenty of boho pattern, and you have the perfect cottage overlooking the pacific.

This centerpiece is stunning!

My favorite nook...

A truly fresh and breezy home to be enjoyed on yet another fabulous Summer day.

food for thought: they're baaaaack, coconut m&m's

2 years ago, a friend of mine let me in on a not so well known secret, limited edition Coconut M&M's... I have been hoarding 2 bags in my fridge, breaking them out only on special occasions. Well, special occasions and perhaps special favors ;) I am happy to say they are back and apparently to stay. I have yet to see a commercial for them, but at least the scary LIMITED EDITION phrase is not printed on the package.

style board: cedar, mod living lounge

It is time again for the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2011, first up, Cedar...

a lovely sophisticated green that plays very well with other colors and the possibilities of styles are endless. I settled with this play on a 50's-60's mod, with a kick of Boho thanks to the pillows ;)

interiors: global contempo, vogue living march/april 2009

I was hoping to get some pool time in today, but bleep happens... so instead, I will lose myself in this gorgeous Queensland's Sunshine Coast beach house. This home is a stylish balance of laid back contemporary with an injection of old world rustic and a kiss of mod glam.

Limestone, my all-time favorite, is everywhere in this home, inside and out.

The sleek, open kitchen overlooks the living area, perfect for entertaining.

Did I mention entertaining? Look at this pool!

I have a serious fondness for neon, so loving this custom installation.

It may be Queensland, but this home with the clean white contemporary facade, and interior, combined with the warmth of reclaimed wood, this home (to me anyway) has a lovely laid back Mediterranean feel to it.
