Getting Ready


I'm still getting ready for family. I'm just popping in to say, "hello", and to show you what I've been up to.

It's all about color right now. I've always been a neutral kind of gal, but there have been stirrings inside of me lately . . . longings for color . . .



Hot pink silk, turquoise blue with touches of gold






Gold, Light Pink and Lavender






I recovered my kitchen stools in a blue and brown pattern. Then I changed the curtains in the kitchen to match.

I'll be back soon. Hope you're all having a great summer!

I too think that colors somehow belong to summer! I have a haunch for turqoises (blues as well as greens) and pinks lately. Have a lovely time with your family Nancy!

Dear Nancy,
Color is good…
I think we all need spot or two…
It funny because I have had to deal with a very bright family room the last few years.
my dear hubby and son painted the room for me but the paint was mixed wrong, I picked an ivory with a tint of yellow but it turned out to be a deco yellow…I wasn’t home at the time and I didn’t have the heart to ask them to paint it again (cathedral ceilings). There is a lot of sunlight in this room which makes it great in the winter but this time of year I need family room sunglasses… I am getting bathed in too much color…I could use a little gray…

love your pictures…

It's all so pretty but that chandelier took my breath away. It is stunning and what a fabulous shade of blue.

It is all so beautiful Nancy. Isn't it strange how we crave different things at different stages of our lives? Before the white, my entire house was done in reds and greens and browns. your chandy is gorgeous!
I covet that sofa! Do you know the name and maker of the fabric on it?
I hope you enjoy your Summer dear one.

I love the colours of Laduree boxes ;) aren't they beautiful? Such lovely pastels, and rather safe, if you are just beginning to add splashes of colour to your home...

I'm the same, I love splashes of colour, really love the fabrics you have used in the kitchen.
