changing out my old bi-fold closet doors to solid double doors similar to these. so much nicer. 
anyone else have these?

recently crazy...

...for a little navy or colbalt blue in an otherwise neutral space. This rug gets it just right.

benjamin moore's gray owl

Two different versions of the the Chicago apartment of Lauren Gold, design director for Nate Berkus Associates. The first one from several years ago, and the second from the current issue of Lonny.

The wall color in the second image is Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl OC-52.

Ralph Lauren Tudric Pewter

I am absolutely nuts over this New Orleans home, rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina and stylishly refurnished with an amazingly small amount of money.   

Karina Gentinetta painted several antique pieces in her home, including the secretary above, Ralph Lauren Tudric Pewter.

The french-style headboard, above, which Karina had made then upholstered herself, is also painted Tudric Pewter.

Check out the piece on this home in  The New York Times.

Thanks to Nelya and Artie who first made me swoon with these photos.
