an amazing greek vacation home

The Greek Isles; my bucket-list travel destination.

The wonderful whites and earth tones of Jasper Conran's vacation home in Lindos on the Island of Rhodes are exactly what I would image for the perfect Greek get-away.

Who's with me?

Gray Wicker




World Market has a lot of gray-washed wicker pieces; 


(Wouldn't it be perfect for storing kids' toys in a den? And it adds great texture to a room.) 

Hope you have a great weekend!

Gray of the Day

Fawn Brindle
Sherwin Williams 7640



"Grays are my new favorite neutral, and this one is wonderfully warm, with an organic feel. It can be casual and comforting or quietly elegant. I've used it in a dining room to create a sophisticated backdrop, but it could also be very relaxing in a bedroom. I like a satin finish for a richer look with greater durability." —Ann Wisniewski

VIDA: The Artsy Scarf


You know me. 
I love my neutrals and I love my black and white.
So I was super tickled to receive a beautiful black and 
white scarf recently from VIDA, a new-to-me clothing and 
accessory company.  VIDA partners with artists, 
designers and photographers around the world to create 
stunning designs for their clothing line. 

Here are a  few of their awesome designs:




My new scarf arrived in a lovely presentation box:

  And I thought you might like to see the same scarf
on someone really beautiful:

at the Golden Globes.


Check out VIDA and their inspiring story of partnering with artisans and manufacturers...




I received a VIDA scarf for review. Opinions here are my own.
