Wishing you a wonderful New Year...a beautiful and fresh new beginning.

I was fairly smitten with the NYC Apartment of  Casey Smith recently featured on Domaine.
He pretty much used gray tones throughout...

It's my obsession right now...styling my kitchen.

Crazy, right? But that's me.

Are you similarly afflicted? Or do you have a friend with the same illness?

Here are a few goodies I found that would make great gifts for you, er..I mean, your friends...for the holidays...

(what a great look!)

I have this and LOVE it.

Holiday Gift-Giving: John Derian Trays

I've always been crazy about the quirky and collected look of John Derian's home,

These would make terrific and special hostess or friend gifts this holiday...
