Friday You’re So Happy Chic

I recently bought one of Jonathan Adler’s new books – Happy Chic Accessorizing. I related to the candlelight tip immediately and felt like Jonathan and I do have something in common.

As a proprietor of bad dining room lighting, I always make sure to create the lighting myself in order to set the right mood for dinner guests.

Use this tip next time you plan a dinner party.

 

Happy Friday,

Irene

Friday You're So Inspired by Color

I’m quickly finding out that one of the elements that inspires me most is color. I look for unique color schemes everywhere I go and often find them in their natural form when walking, driving or traveling. I find some random color coincidentally mixed in with some other colors and say to myself, “I bet I could design a room based off these hues.”

If I would’ve been the designer behind this kitchen, perhaps my inspiration derived from a present packaged in deep, blue wrapping paper, white bow and orange tag.

Once my room is complete, I stand back and create an outfit.

Be on the lookout for appealing color schemes, apply them to your home, floral arrangements, or clothing and everyone will think you’re a color genius.

Happy Weekend,

Irene

These dictionaries are so pretty and would look gorgeous displayed on a bookshelf or make for a great conversation piece on a charming table setting.

Happy Weekend,

Irene

I’d recommend clicking on the link located at the top with the http and funny letters to see that I don’t just put pictures in randomly . Thanks for following!
