Living With Great Style

a pop of color: black

Black walls have been popping up in homes for years now. When I first started noticing them becoming popular was after Jenna Lyons was featured in Domino Magazine in 2008. I’ve always been tempted to paint a room black but have never had the full courage to do so. I think if it is done right it can be amazing, I think I’m just waiting for the right space.


Have you pulled the trigger and painted a room in your home black? Or would you ever paint a room all black? Would love to hear your thoughts on this!

a pop of color: all white

It’s no secret that there is a special place in my heart for all white interiors. So when I got a call yesterday from a dear friend and client asking to help pick one for a home she’s building, I went to my notebook and then decided to see what others thought . . . I started to do a little research.

The favorites amongst the Interior Designers and bloggers I asked were these:

* Farrow & Ball All White finished with Estate Emulsion, Shaded White and White Tie

* Benjamin Moore Cloud White, Decorator’s White and Super White

Since I’m working on this project intensely over the next few days I’d love to know if you have a favorite white paint color? Are there any you’ve combined to make the “perfect” white? Everyone’s got a different white they are attracted to, so I’m curious to hear what everyone recommends.

Hope all of you chime in!

a pop of jcrew . . .

This past weekend I had the pleasure of popping into the JCrew in Corta Madera – my favorite location in the Bay Area (Carmel’s is out of this world too!). As I walked into the store I finally felt inspired to transition my wardrobe from winter to spring. It’s time to bring out the cotton and color and store the wool. We all know that I’m a stripe-aholic – beware my fellowstripe lovers, the store is packed full of striped goodness along with pops of color that had my creative outfit juices flowing (Alicia and Taylor would have been so proud). In the end I walked away with loads of inspiration about what to do with clothes I already own. I also walked away with a pair of slouchy khaki pants to roll up.


I’m ready to bust out some pops of color in the next few days – especially since the sun is shining bright! Where are all of you finding spring outfit inspiration?
