greetings and happy new year, friends! we’re back and i’m hoping you had a relaxing holiday break — at least a bit of personal downtime in what’s always a very hectic season. it rained here a lot in California and the days have been a tad gray, so i thought i’d start us off with a truly rosy glow to really rev us up this January. it’s all about those many dramatic shades of red and bits of blush — from funky tiled floors and interesting wall treatments to cozy area rugs and a red hot banquette you can’t really go wrong with any shade of red. from that perfect slash of red lipstick to rich velvets, red adds vibrancy and seems to scream “oh, hey— it’s me, and i’m bold and brave!” rosy red makes a statement to be sure, so whether you’re only prepared for a small dose of it (think throw pillow) or a sofa that’s simply covered in red, here’s a rosy glow for you.

  1. love.love. LOVE! When I was in college in New Orlean,, I worked in a hotel bar that had a jazz trio that played for happy hour. there was a woman that would come in every day always dressed head to toe in purple. we called her the purple lady (all sorts of rumors that she was having an affair with one of the musicians, but’s another story). everything from her lilac hair, to her light purple cat eye glasses, to her dresses- everything. she waslovely and she said her house was all purple too. New Orleans has the best colorful people. Anyhoo- all this to say, that’s me with these colors- slowly but surely my home just has more and more of these colors. love them!
