The Harvest Moon

Full moon tonight.  It’s a good time to let go….

Full Moon Mantra 

I release the need for those things in life

that are not serving my purpose or higher self.

I am not afraid to let go.

In their place I receive love, joy and abundance.

All Wired Up

French design collective PETITE FRITURE was included in the July/August 2014 issue of Elle Decor’s What’s Hot feature, and what else could I say but ooohh la la.

Ooohh la la.

Established in 2009, Petite  Friture’s main focus is to promote promising young designers, and “develop with them a catalogue of objects, lighting and small furniture that creates a vibration.”  Their team of talents’ expertise include interior design, product design and art direction.

Their latest project was designing power-coated steel indoor and outdoor furniture in fun, playful shapes.  The results?  Cool. Brilliant. Simple, but looks uber-fun.

Lavender Mist

The color purple has always been synonymous with luxury, femininity and royalty…

Painting a room purple may be a suggestion most people would question, but pale purple, or lavender, is a neutral color that is a necessity for any glamorous home. The hue is almost gray that it compliments any type of interior.

LavenderPaint

Lavender color is versatile and depending on how it’s used, it can bring a romantic, calming, modern or eccentric feel to a room.

The color is also subdued, which makes it easier to coordinate with almost any type of fabric. And for the same reason, it lavender paint makes the perfect backdrop for wall art.

SOME TIPS:

*For a “wow” moment, choose glossy lavender paint in an entryway.
*The bedroom is the best place to use lavender as it is soothing and almost lulls you to sleep!
*Avoid using lavender in a kitchen or bathroom as it is the type of color that needs to be complemented with other patterns, textures and hues.
*Gray with lavender is a chic and glamorous combination, while browns add warmth, and green add a little bit of romance.
