1  THE POSH VENICE SIMPLON ORIENT EXPRESS  I must go on this one day, the pictures get me dreaming every time. Maybe for a big birthday or anniversary. Anyone been? I think it would be such a fun to travel this way through Europe..so Dr. Zhivago! Looks so opulent, elegant and sophisticated beyond description. I had fun prowling on their website, so many exciting options. Definitely  putting this on my bucket list!  Click here to visit or go on the most luxurious virtual train trip you can possibly embark on.

 

2 PEEKS INTO A FUN PROJECT  Working on a great design job in NYC and we are doing several rooms at once having such fun,  because we are working on my most favorite color palette, creams and pale blues for the master. I found so many exquisite fabrics and trims, just had to share-

And isn’t this palette fabulous for a living/family room (rug from Ralph Lauren)

Here is a loose mood board for that room

 

3 AN EASY AND SO DELICIOUS RECIPE! I love shrimp and unfortunately love pasta. I have given up the pasta for almost a month now and it’s definitely a lot easier now than it was 4 weeks ago. I bought this great little gadget (a spiralizer for vegetables) and must say I not only love using it but done right, the zucchini almost tastes like pasta. This was so easy and really delicious and satisfying with zero guilt-

I used vegetable stock and omitted the Parmesan (as much as I love it) added lots of extra lemon though and it was delish:)

Use a small amount of olive oil and saute the cleaned shrimp for about 4 minutes or until pink, set aside.  Then saute garlic adding butter and chicken stock, salt and pepper then, add juice of lemon and parsley, add zucchini and saute in sauce until done (normally 3-4 minutes) Once done carefully add shrimp and make sure everything is well blended. At this point you can add the Parmesan if you wish.

 

4 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST This is one of my favorite parts about putting these Sunday posts together, I just find so much inspiration on Instagram. This weeks round up is pretty breathtaking if you ask me-

5. A MUST HAVE SNEAKER Since I have been working out (moderately) I realized I needed new sneakers, I went out and bought a pair but hate that they are so hard to put on…really annoying. I saw an ad for these and instantly bought them,I liked the look and being they were a slip on was a huge bonus. Well, let me tell you these are fantastic!!! Super comfortable, so easy to slip on and off and they can even be worn casually with jeans or capris. Plus the price is right! Click here to see

6. A NEW BOOK ON ENTERTAINING/TABLETOP THAT YOU NEED ON YOUR COFFEE TABLE ! I have been a fan of Charlotte Moss’s for a while, she has impeccable taste and I own several of her books. Just opening this and drooling over the cover, I knew this was going to be good. But how good I did not know. Put aside all your favorite books and make room for one that you will want to keep front and center. This is nothing short of sensational.

From cover to back cover, this book is filled with the most beautiful images, they literally take your breath away. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, also great gift idea. Truly sensational, I haven’t been this excited over a book in a long long time. Click here to get yours

7. SUNDAY’S SURVEY The Royal wedding……….are you as excited as I am? I have to say it as I do often,  I was so born in the wrong era, I might physically be here in 2018 but mentally I am back in the 1920’s, donning my fancy dresses, pearls, floppy hat and gloves . Downton Abby, The Crown, I can’t get enough! And the Royal family brings me to back to a much more genteel proper time and I love every part of it.

Sometimes I even day dream about dressing in the era I wish I was born in, setting a proper table every single meal, having nightly turn down with sprays of lavender and handing out calling cards, but then I think about the looks I would get from my family (can you imagine me asking my boys to call me Mummy)!

Not to mention walking through a supermarket and the reaction that could get haha. Suddenly I am brought back to “real life”, call me an incurable wander luster and time traveler. So…….because of my admiration for the Royal family and because Harry is so adorable,  I am going to be tuning in to all the pomp and circumstance that day and watching every minute. Wondering how much company I have out there? Will you be tuning in to the Royal Wedding?

Another great Sunday post, love your varied topics. The recipe sounds great. I also love your client’s apartment ideas, they are lucky to have you!
Yes I too am fascinated by all things Royal, you had me laughing about living in the wrong era, I say that too….things move too fast today and I am 48 saying that! I want to go back to a calmer, more civilized time.

Regina on

Will definitely be watching with my daughter,daughters-in-law, my two granddaughters, four sisters and several nieces. We make it a special occasion. We dress up, decorate in English style, have English breakfast/ brunch, etc. Just another wonderful time to be together. This will be our third time enjoying Royal weddings like this. We have so much fun.
Oh yes…. i’ll be taping it too.

My parents went on the Orient Express for their 50th wedding anniversary last year, they travel a lot and called it “the trip of a lifetime”. Hoping to go for my own 25th wedding anniversary!
Getting those sneakers, love the idea of a pull on sneaker. Anything you have recommended that I bought i have been thrilled with.
And yes will be tuned in to the Royal Wedding, I love Harry, lukewarm on Meghan but hopefully she will change my mind in due time. Fun post!

Donna D on

So nice to see your Instagram of Clary Bosbyshell of Atlanta (Margaux Interiors). Her mother, Margaret, helped us decorate our first house, wonderful result. ….Love seeing the pale, pale pinks again in a sophisticated way and not just the pink of little girl’s rooms. It’s a wonderful color for any room when done right. So refreshing!

I LOVE TRAINS, YOU CAN GET TO SEE MORE OF THE COUNTRY SIDE, AND OTHER GEOGRAPHICAL PLACES, PLUS GET TO SEE HOW PEOPLE LIVE. TRAINS CAN NOT ONLY BE USED FOR ENJOYABLE TRIPS, BUT CAN PRESENT A GREAT DEAL OF EDUCATION FOR BOTH YOUNG AND OLD.

Mary on

My daughter and I have been up at the crack of dawn to watch the royal weddings since Charles and Diana. This time my eight-year-old granddaughter will be joining us – she’s as excited as we are. Obviously we’re a family of incurable romantics!

Diane Myers on

I am looking forward to the royal wedding as well. I love those beautiful and elegant times.. However, I like the conveniences of today but how I enjoy the British traditions, floppy hats, pearls, beautiful dresses, the pomp and circumstance, English tea parties, beautiful table settings and, the sophistication of it all.,

floppy hats, pearls and long dresses, beautifully dressed tables, fine china, English tea a traditions fascinate me. I

Barbara on

Ah, the royal wedding. I too am lukewarm about Megan, I truly hope she understands that this is a lifetime commitment and not one that will just be fin for awhile!
