Client update - a blue and white family room!

Here's my latest blue and white project.
Sharing at the Pink Pagoda Blue and White Bash!

Another case of chair envy has emerged.
This little slice of heaven was delivered to my client today.

Mind. Blown.  I mean...
Ain't she a beaut?
And what's even better is that there are two of them!
So it's double the fun:)
The chairs will be paired with this bright and shiny blue oomph coffee table. oooh -- I just love oomph.
We had a custom glass top made to fit over the raffia so the kids could safely put their drinks on the table and mom doesn't have to worry about staining (I think mom may have been more worried about red wine stains:)
While the above pieces will be the stars .... this luxurious sectional will be the workhorse in the room.
This family of six will be hanging relaxing and watching hockey games. 
 They are huge Ranger fans!
JUST KIDDING!!!!!! They are FLYERS FANS! xoxo
Don't you just love the brass nail heads? so chic.
Please note some of the other fabrics we are auditioning for this room lying on the sofa. AMAZING.
Furniture by CR Laine

Pillows will be here next week in this fabric

I'm designing a room for a little girl and I fell in love with these three fabric and wallpaper schemes.

What to Choose? hmmm......

Built-ins painted and lovely brass hardware and faucet were added!
So sassy and brassy!!
And we have sconces. Wesport sconces to be exact!
 I love this flush mount from Circa Lighting
We have this happenin' in the powder room
It's gonna be goooood.
Will share more as it finishes!! HOPEFULLY soon!!
Thanks for reading xoxo!

Ready for Spring?

I will never be so prepared for a season
as I will be for this upcoming Spring.
In fact I did a bit of spring shopping for "winter into spring"  staples.
You know ... what the fashion world calls "transition wear".
So I have to find my new spring uniform or the go-to outfit I'll shamelessly wear everyday.
The Schoolboy Blazer
 I'll wear it with this great fitting jeweled baseball tee
(go up a size - it runs a bit small)

Oh yea I'm buying two because I love the fit.
Do you ever do that?
I'll pair it with my skinny jeans and boots on cool damp days
and these flats on warm spring-like days.
Tory Burch
By the way I can't get enough of nude shoes.
I have a closet full of them ... wedges, flats, heels, They have to be of the pale nude shade variety and not that dark carmel shade.
Not sure why.
Oh, and one more must-have item from JCREW.
The tippi.

It comes in a million different colors, has a great fit and is the perfect weight for a spring sweater:)
Speaking of spring shopping I hit up Skirt in Bryn Mawr because I wanted to try the new Mom's Organic market in Rosemont (I highly recommend visiting the juice bar before you do your shopping).
Here's what I found....

Great Spring Bags!
These lavender numbers
This one from Tibi
Tons of stripes. Everyone's spring staple...
By the way crop tops are boss for spring. Just so you're in the know.
I think they were the rage in the 90's too?? It's such a don't for me ...but if I were to do this is how...
And can't forget the statement necklace

If you want to see more of what Skirt offers for spring scroll down on their facebook page here! These girls know how to throw an outfit together!
My next stop?
Coco Blu in Wayne. LOVE that store --it's such a pretty store  filled with gorgeous fashion.
I told you I WILL be prepared for this Spring season.
Also, am heading to the St. Katharine of Siena Fashion Show tomorrow night featuring some incredible fashion from
Louella in Wayne.
Join me why don't you?
For more information go here.
Let's go broke together!
