I couldn’t be more excited today. I’m off to San Francisco for a quick weekend with friends and Alameda Antiques by the Bay. Over 600 vendors selling vintage items on a sunny 60 degree day can’t be wrong! Can’t wait to share my finds from the show. As always if there’s anything that you’re looking for, that includes anything for weddings, parties or just to decorate your apartment/ home, let me know and I’ll keep my eyes peeled for you.
In the meantime, Tom Dixon is my new design hero. He’s been using copper as an unexpected twist on furniture and home decor. I’d love to see more items covered in copper.

Time tested style: Nothing feels as fresh to me as bold black and white stripes. This spring I can’t wait to pair black and white with bursts of color in kelly green, yellow and fuschia.

The best eating out experiences in my mind combine great food with an even better atmosphere. This weekend, my lunch date at VanDaag, a dutch restaurant in NYC, was no exception.
From the bright yellow exterior to the spacious, airy bar this East Village fav is a homage to Scandanvian and mid-century design. Eames style chairs surround the tables and bright yellow and white subway tiles line the walls in graphic pattern. The long black banquettes are paired pefectly with bright yellow and blue, giving everything inside fresh, light and modern feeling.
This restaurant has such great style, not to mention delicious food, that I may just want to move in…
I looked in my closet the other day and realized that almost everything I own is black, white or gray. NYC living I guess. So, when I spotted these awesome shoes on someone walking to work today, it got me thinking about how much I like bright yellow. It always stands out in a crowd and looks cheery on a gray day. Happy Friday! See you back on Monday!
Marigold and neutrals look fresh and clean.
