For the love of grey...



Grey has been my new favorite color for a while now... I used to love Brown- well I still do but grey has stolen my heart away! It is a perfect neutral for design, a great background for a home. You can leave it as is, mix multiple shades of grey, add some white or some black and when you feel like it throw in a color- any color! Everything goes with it. Definitely a classic...

Alison Berger Glass lighting



Since the day I laid eyes on her pieces at Holly Hunt in the PDC I have been truly in love! Alison Berger makes the most amazing glass pendants you have ever seen! Each piece is designed by hand and is a piece of art. I have reserved locations for some of these in my kitchen and master bath.... someday.

The picture above is from this months House Beautiful in a home by Michael S. Smith. He uses the Alison Berger Word Pendants.
