Hint of Light Pink

I’m all about bold hot pink, but I just adore the little light pink details in these images. Just a touch of it, like in the form of a bolster pillow or stunning chandelier, is all you need to sweeten up a sophisticated space. And those stairs from Holly Golightly’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s NYC walk up…genius! I’m obsessed.

Happy Weekend

Long weekend bliss! Today I’m focused on brunch with three fab DC girls and GW’s Homecoming basketball game. Then tomorrow, I’m heading up to New York City for a two-day getaway. I have so many fun dates planned – it will be an exciting, quick trip! However you are celebrating President’s day, I hope you have a happy weekend, friends!

Kitchen of the Year

House Beautiful’s Kitchen of the Year is such a fun experience where magazine partners with a kitchen master to build a beautiful kitchen in the middle of Rockefeller Center. It’s a pretty amazing sight. The Kitchen of the Year event is going on this week with a great space by Tyler Florence. Here are two of my favorite views:

But my favorite thing about Kitchen of the Year, is that I had the great privilege of being a part of it one year. In the summer of 2008 I was a House Beautiful intern. (Gosh, this seems like so long ago! Can’t believe I didn’t write about this sooner!) One of the greatest projects I worked on while there was the Kitchen of the Year by Christopher Peacock. I arrived at dawn to help style and set up the kitchen with HB editors before it went “live”. It was a busy day with moving furniture, trips to Whole Foods and Williams Sonoma to buy props, and cleaning up…but seriously, it was one of the best work days ever.

Some of my favorite scenes from that kitchen (including ones I helped style!)

If you’re in New York this week, I highly suggest you check out Kitchen of the Year! And hopefully one day I’ll have another opportunity to work on this fun design project.
