Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary! Your home is wonderful. I was so pleasantly surprised at Christmas by my two closest friends. They gave me the fabulous silver planter I have had my eye on for the longest time! I can’t wait to use it. So my next want from the store is one of the smaller silver planters. This is a bad (wonderfully bad) place for me! Thank you.

So how is 2013 treating you so far? With the exception of my husband coming down with pneumonia, it was a wonderful holiday season. Funny,? New Years day unexpectedly ended up being one of the best days. First off, ? it was the first day in 8 days that hubs felt up to getting fully dressed and coming downstairs, then it was a continuation of our movie marathon, we watched Dances with Wolves, Meet Joe Black, Under the Tuscan Sun? and a few others, all the while I was cooking the entire day (but really loving it) I made beef stew, paninis, homemade basked mac, even small apple tarts..yes I was on a roll! My husband spent a lot of time exploring my blog and was thoroughly entertained and it was just a great family day, alongside a roaring fire, it was spent at home enjoying each others company….it was cold outside but really warm and cozy inside. So life is slowly getting back to normal after the holiday blizzard (not literal but the whirlwind). I have yet to take down any decorations…thinking I will give it another week, not quite ready to say goodbye to the magic of Christmas or the hard work I put into it:)

?

Today’s Which Would You Choose is a fun one. Roll with me here……the designer fairies have paid you a visit. Hey, its a new year…time for a change, right? They have told you that you get to have one designer of your choosing redo your entire home soup to nuts. Only catch? You cannot have any say, you are at their talented mercy and must go on a little “vacay “for a week while they work their magic. Which of these talented tastemakers would you trust to redo your entire home? Many if not most you know, but I have also included two pictures of their work that I think? represents their style. This is a tough one, though I think I have it narrowed down to two. No wait, I mean three. OK, two. Here we go…..so which would you choose!?

Baby blues in grown up spaces!

Happy Monday to you! Hope everyone had a great weekend and a happy Fathers day was spent with all the dads in your life. ?I must confess….I am a blueaholic. (OK yes, I know that is not really a word but a word I coined for all those obsessed with blue like me) I so ?love the color in everything from decor to clothing to my car color to just about anything for that matter. Blues rock! I love them from the palest shyest blues to the darkest boldest navy’s. There are few blues that I don’t embrace or see the beauty in. One palette that I have always loved and been drawn to is a soft baby blue, even with?a hint of gray, its such a soothing, serene, calming and elegant color.?

I am planning on my master bedroom being done in creams and pale pale blues. I cannot wait to start pulling it together, right now I am working on the carpeting and will go from there. I am not rushing, as I want it to be right therefore I will do my darnest from making hasty decisions. So in my quest for a beautiful pale blue master bedroom I have naturally acquired quite a lovely little collection of pictures for inspiration as you might imagine! Thought I might share them with you for all you blue lovers out there and for those of you aren’t maybe I will make a convert out of you yet!! Here we go….onto a dreamy pale blue cloud!
