fall yay

 color palette is important in things.

your home.

your clothes.

your art.

since i am a painter lady now i have been studying hard on all the colors together.

this one is on my brain a lot..

turquoise and rust?

teal and cinnamon?

turquoise and caramel?





how gorgeous are all those colors together?




 anne mcnally's paris apartment in this months AD was pretty much a winner.

quirky, traditional, eclectic, silly.. fabulous!



i love it.


good god that coffee table.



all those minty green walls.

so pretty!



happy weekend all.

and happy fall.


in general i am terrible at keeping secrets


this is mine.

michelle armas super painter painted this just for me.


i was going to wait until next week

when she delivers it to show it to you.

but i can't.

it's too awesome and it holds powers greater than my brain capacity for keeping secrets.

she asked me for inspiration and in short i said "lavender and yellow".

i got so much more than that.

she really is a genius at capturing YOU in her work.


i can't wait to hang it above my fireplace.  

pictures of that next week.
