SPECTACULAR OUTDOOR SETTINGS.How about this for an outdoor setting? You know my love for blue and white, then you throw in a fabulously gorgeous home/backyard and you are talking some serious eye candy! This happens to be my friends house which is being used for a designers showcase. LOVE this whole setting!!!! What do you think?
FALL INSPIRATION. Though I know by the time I move and settle in fall entertaining will be well past me, and I am sure I won't have any energy left for it, it is so amazingly inspirational isn't it? I have so enjoyed visiting blogland and seeing some truly amazing and breathtaking fall entertaining pictures and ideas. Many are quite simple, but their impact is nonetheless incredible. Flowers in pumpkins, pumpkins as soup and stew bowls,a trio of beautiful fall colored apples sliced up on a wooden cutting board, a simple artichoke on a plate, such fantastic ideas that anyone can do! Below a few.....
Using a small pumpkin as a bowl..genius! (and comes with its own lid)
CHINOISERIE MURALS. I am once again back to the drawing board in looking at colors and designs for the chinoiserie for my dining room and formal powder room. For the powder room I see a hand blocked antique faded gold background and for the dining room I am really loving this really pale antiqued looking gray/blue/green but love the green, the neutral colored one and the darker slate blue/gray too! So technically, all four of these are all serious contenders.....what do you think? Last I found these amazing handpainted lampshades for sconces, how pretty are these?
Well everyone that's it for me. Anything you are loving this week? Would love to know all about it! I am overdue to see a movie...has anyone seen anything great lately? I am supposed to see Mozarts sister in the next few days...cannot wait!! Wishing you all a wonderful day.
