I love this sophisticated palette and with hints of metallics it’s really beautiful isn’t it? I’ve selected a few Benjamin Moore paints to help guide you. The top, Decorators White is the white I always use for a ‘true’ white. I love it because it has just a tiny bit of gray in it to lessen the starkness. White dove is a soft creamy white that is a nice neutral for your walls and with Decorators White as your trim you will be able to see a difference in color. These colors can almost become a neutral palette when the … Read more

We love the work of silversmith Kaminer Haislip and the holidays are the perfect time to give a gift of her extraordinary work.

Having friends over this weekend for St. Patrick’s Day? Why not serve fresh green mint cocktails like a classic mint julep recipe. I carry a vintage inspired mint julep cup on my shop. My silversmith and I found a julep cup from the 40’s and we had it replicated for my shop. I just love it. It’s a little taller and a little more slender than the readily available julep cups out there. And why not fill extra julep cups with mint as your table or bar decor- they will smell wonderful and your guests can use the mint to … Read more
A winter wedding opens up so many ways to seasonally distinguish an event visually. From the flowers available that time of year, to the rich iconography (snowflakes! sweaters! candlelight!), a well-designed winter wedding will always stand out from the crowd. One of my favorite events was this wedding I shot in the ski heaven of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A palette of pewter, dusty greens, and white was the perfect way for this bride to embrace her January date with elegance. She also incorporated natural elements such as polished riverbed stones with long white pillar candles. And guests received keepsake blankets … Read more
If you haven’t realized from my shop or my posts, I’m a bit obsessed with tabletop and design. So I was so thrilled and elated when I discovered Kaminer Haislip’s designs for the first time. I just love her coffee and tea services that combine wood and silver… as well as most everything else she designs! And of course wouldn’t you know it, she’s as gracious as she is talented. Kaminer recently granted me an interview and I wanted to share it with you today as well as show you a sampling of her work. She shares a lot of … Read more
As we end 2012 and go forward with a brand new year, this palette of pink, blush, stones colors and metallics seems fresh and clean. I talked about emerald green as Pantone’s 2013 color of the year, but then Benjamin Moore has a soft yellow called Lemon Sorbet as color of the year that they are mixing with mint, coral, pink, blue and vanilla neutrals. I’m anxious to watch the award shows in January and February to see what colors will trend in the girls’ gowns. I think it sometimes predicts the mood of the year in both fashion and … Read more
