Interior: A Family Home

A fabulous home in Amsterdam.

Wherever laughter and smile are, there is love… such a sense is exactly what might be interpreted while enjoying this wonderful family home, located in Amsterdam. A lovely mixture of romantic-baroque rococo, of French and Italian style, so says Milk Magazine. And is it any wonder that the home is furnished in beautiful, exclusive Venetian fabrics, for the owner has been importing them for quite some time. And yet, for all of the refinement, there are books stacked in corners, and found objects amiss, scattered about here and there, and the sense of endless fun, laughter, and quality of life, lives and breathes throughout this magnificent home…

Inspiration: Heavenly Blues


Inspiration for adding blue into the home & wardrobe.

Even on the rainiest of days (mixed with snow!) such as today, a medley of soft blues seem perfect. After all, if you cannot beat the raindrops, join them! It may show up in the coziest form of sweaters… or maybe within a dreamy wall… Chanel couture… and maybe even a bath, trimmed in gold. What is inspiring you today?

Designer: Hoss Intropia





Hoss Intropia: Spring/Summer 2013.

Beautiful Spring and Summery styles from Hoss Intropia, showcased in an array of lovely colors—some so warm, and some so refreshing. I long for those strappy, buttery leather sandals with coral details, a long, sweeping dress (or two), and that vibrant, beaded necklace. And you?

Wishes: Happy Valentine's Day!


Warm wishes for you!

Today, we celebrate Valentine's Day, and like always, I enjoy this day in savory, small ways… and why not? Whether single or not, the day can mean to each person as they wish… to celebrate the beauty and splendor of love in all of its forms—whether it be a bit of heart for a family member, dear friend, spouse, or even a stranger… offer a smile, a warm gesture, words of encouragement, and enjoy the wonderful day just as you wish! Happy Valentine's Day!

Interior: A Kitchen of Brightness



Perhaps what drew me to this room most of all is that outstanding flooring. Next to its colors and pattern, bold stainless and fresh white walls offset by warm beams seem to be just the key to an open, airy, bright kitchen. The only thing I might add would be an island, I believe…

Style: Boxy & Sheer

Gentle styles for Spring.

With the fortunate sunny weather that today afforded, my mind left my cozy stack of knits and fled for beautiful florals, airy blouses and sandals. I'm ready to banish my black blazers and replace them with lighter layers, with flow and ease… and you? Are you looking forward to certain styles for Springtime?

Welcome, February

 
Welcome, February—a rosé hued month.

It seemed that things were just seeming to fall in place, and then, we launched a pop-up shop for Leuie, just in time for Christmas. Shortly after that, we resolved to stay—to turn our little pop-up shop into a permanent boutique within the beautiful city. Since, January seems to come and gone without a chance to reflect and rest upon a single day. And now, we welcome February, arguably one of the most celebrated months of the year…


















I hope that the first month of 2013 has given you a wonderful start, and that February will follow suit with even more delightful days ahead. I want to thank you for visiting—I have had just a few moments to visit some of the delightful blogs that visit my own, and have not had a chance to leave you a note or two. So, thank you!
