Al Fresco Dining…

0fce1b10c6d4772365b955877c54b24c

Dinners outside with family and friends is tops on my list when the weather is nice. Back in the day when I was working, weekly trips to the West Coast were not uncommon. Los Angeles is known for amazing restaurants with Al Fresco dining. That was when my love for outdoor dining really peaked. There is nothing better. Here are a few of my inspirational photos for the months ahead!

Biker Style…

Dust off your bikes and pump up the tires. Warm weather means it’s time to hit the road. Love it!

Revisiting a Classic

gatsby-original-cover-art

No time like the present to pick up a classic, The Great Gatsby. With the film release just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reread or listen to the audio version (the new one is read by Jake Gyllenhaal), of a book that many of us had as assigned reading in school years ago. Many many years ago in my case! Reading at its best!

The Friday Find ~ 26 April

I was so inspired by the outdoor photos I posted yesterday and fell in love with the fabulous triptych of lights hanging in the enclosed porch. I love them so much I had to feature them today. This lantern from Suzanne Kasler comes in a variety of finishes but this one is my favorite. This is a show stopper for sure. Hang one in your entry way and you will see what I mean!

Small Space Chic

A few visual tricks and a small space looks roomy. The mirrored backsplash gives this small kitchen a bigger look and feel. This is a great idea even in a large kitchen!

The Little Black Table

Just like a little black dress is a staple for most women, a little black table can have the same effect in a home. I always think a bit of black in each room is the punctuation mark. Here are two great pieces that, in black, give impact to a room.

Singing the Blues…

The one color that says warm weather to me is classic navy. I never get tired of it. Solid or stripes. Mixed with white, black, brown, gray or gold…I love it! Here are a few of my Spring inspirations. The table above by Tory Burch is fabulous.  I love the fresh look of this table!

The classic blue and white stripe t shirt. Every wardrobe could use one of these.

Talk about great style.  There maybe a lots of blues in this room but this is beyond chic.  Love how the layers of blues and patterns work together.

It is never too late to read a classic, especially with the movie soon to be released! This old edition is fabulous!

Perfectly beachy, these blues have me longing for the sun and sand!

Ah. Steve McQueen. I think I can honestly say that not many men can pull this blue number off!
