Collected and Natural..





This space has a wonderful collected natural feeling, it doesn't feel forced or planed.  
Just relaxed and special.  

Are you a collector? 
What is your best find?
I have a few very special pieces but they all have a story..  they should always have a story.  
Some of my favorites are artwork.
I purchased my first Eric Zener pieces when I started working
on my own as a designer for the first time.

They are very special to me because they are symbolic of  the adventure that I was starting and I love them to this day!

touch of blue...




While walking in Paris I fell in love with this place.  I think it may have been a small hotel.  The door colors were a perfect accent to the stone...

They always seem to get it right.. ahh France.

The light fixture in the entryway was simple and special, as was the man in the suit!  (he was very sweet and I think a little embarrassed when I took his photo)

In love with a set of doors...





So like I said - I fell in love with all of the doors at Versailles..  however, I think that these were my favorites.. 
They were the perfect color and simple and understated...
the stone surrounding them was perfection- 
LOVED them...

Is it weird to love a set of doors?  

So what are your plans for the weekend?  

I think some work and relaxation here with the holiday and all!

Yes that is me in the bottom photo there..  don't get used to seeing me.. it is fairly rare that I am in any photos, as I am usually holding the camera.

Water for Elephants...








I finally had a chance to see the movie after reading the book on my trip.  It was really great, the sets and costumes were wonderful and the animals were so cool. 

Have you seen the movie?  Did you read the book?  I really loved the book and highly recommend it.

Versailles in detail...




These are just a few of the images from our visit to Versailles.  It was amazing the amount of detail
that went into each room.  The doors were my all time favorite and the hardware was beautiful!

If you are traveling to Paris I highly recommend a visit to Versailles.  I may even go back again and skip the main house first thing to avoid the crowds and head straight for the smaller buildings and the garden.  

It took us all day to explore the area and we were exhausted afterwards, but it was totally worth it..

Linen Cabinet


This is such a great piece.  I love the contrast! 

I have been loading up my linen closet with the best that I can afford lately.  After being gone I could not wait to come home and climb into my bed with my linen sheets.  It is such a treat to have them that I have invested in an additional set... so much nicer than the cotton...

How about you do you love linens? 

Lately I find my self falling for them more and more - vintage and organic being my favorites!  We found some great unused vintage linen sheets while in France and they are fantastic once they are clean and fresh.

greige fairytale...



May is the perfect time for a great hat!
I wish I could pull something like this off but here in California I would be considered 
insane for sure...

garden secrets..





Sometimes I find that when I take a minute to see things in a different light  I can really find 
inspiration..

We visited some really beautiful gardens while we were in France and I must say that I have a whole new idea of how I want to transform what I have..

So far my garden has basically remained untouched for the past 3 years, simply because I was not sure what exactly we should do with it.  Now I am inspired and hopefully will take some action!

These gardens have been cared for deeply maybe that is what I need a loving hand to make it work.

Roof Tops of Paris...






I simply love architecture and the beautiful lines of buildings in Paris is at the top of my list of favorites!

We had the luxury of being on the top floor of our hotel the first few nights that we spent in Paris and this was a little bit of our view..

So perfect!  

Happy weekend to you!

What are your plans? 

I will be sorting through all of my goodies and tucking them away for later use as well as
celebrating my big guy's 9th birthday..

How quickly time passes..

greige in style...


 

 

The lovely Marie was sweet enough to send me a link to this beautiful pictorial on her home!  
What an amazing job she has done in renovating the 100 plus year old home and making it into a modern eclectic space.  Her use of soft colors is just perfection!

To see more of her home check out the article in Capital Style and to see the piece that she purchased from My Sparrow check here...
