All That Glitters


When it comes to this look and when it's done right... four words. Be still my heart. A trend right now that {if worn right} is one of the most gorgeously adorning pieces exuding femininity. It is also a perfect addition to a holiday ensemble. I'll be writing about more posh holiday fashions so be on the look out!

Kips Bay SH, New York City {Penthouse Floor Level}

Up up up we go

All the way to the PH floor. We finally made it! After Emily and I went through the house and looked through this floor we stopped, looked at each other and said we have to do it again...And we did. :) We didn't want to miss a beat and knew that our eyes were trying to take so much in the first time seeing the house so we walked back through a second time. It was a fantastic idea, we had a new perspective seeing it a second time and caught things we missed the first go around. I think we both could have spent a whole day in the house! As you can see from the floor plan below the PH floor offers a grand space for Jennifer Post to display three brilliant designs. On the back side of the house is a spa room, then the middle is a very spacious sitting/living area, and then the front of the mansion is an outside rooftop area. All three are spectacular!

I hope you thoroughly enjoyed getting a tour of the NYC Kips Bay show house! I had a blast going to see it and sharing it with you! Next show house on the list is the Washington Design Center's design house. Can't wait to show you the sensational designs displayed there. Stay tuned, I'll have it up soon!

Almost there

The fifth floor boasts two large rooms, one on the front of the house and one on the back. Both are very special in their own way. Take a look....

Kips Bay SH, New York City {Fourth Floor Level}

Back to the Kips Bay show house
Sorry for the brief pause in coverage of the show house, had a couple of things I needed to squeeze in over the holidays! But back to the jaw dropping design we go. We pick back up on the 4th floor of the house and have still two more to reveal. From the floor plan shown below this floor dons four inspirational rooms to fall in love with. Check them out...

As you walk up the winding stairway you come to this landing.. which is perfectly and tastefully full of attitude! I would LOVE to read and work in this space. It just has an air about it, gleaming with color and exciting textures.

The master bedroom had definite touches of old hollywood coming through the overall feel. I could crawl up in this bed everyday in a heartbeat. My eyes enjoyed the lightweight white fabrics that covered the room with a romantic foundation.

All and all this was one of my favorite floors...but HOW can you pick a favorite in this place, I mean come on.
Hope you are anxious for the 2 floors left! They will blow your socks off just like the ones thus far-

Look Love

New obsession

Winter is on our doorstep. Hat and gloves are a now a must... Especially in DC. The crisp air is here to stay for a few months and the snow will come soon enough I'm sure. This look is definitely a love of mine and I have been rocking it about once a week for a month now. In a city this cold in the winter hats are a girls best friend and I can't get enough of the fabulous ones around this season. Go snatch one up and create a look love!

Thanksgiving Tablescapes, Make It Your Own

Turkey worthy tables

The only thing prettier than the faces around the thanksgiving table are the decorations on the thanksgiving table. Holidays are a time to enjoy time spent together and the feeling of closeness and family. Creating the perfect space for that to take place is such an important thing. By providing a beautiful, cozy, and inviting environment it allows for this time together to be that much more memorable. Think about the things that are special to your family whether it's certain smells (candles).. music.. tableware (grandmother's china).. whatever it is use those things as a starting point to go off of and be true to your taste! Use the colors that you love and relate to your family around the holidays. Make a table that shows memories and trademarks that are specific to your family. Let this thanksgiving be a time for heartfelt glamorous design and celebration of wonderful times together.

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours
Blessings and Love
