3 Ways with Emerald {PANTONE'S COLOR OF THE YEAR 2013}

 I am just overjoyed that PANTONE named EMERALD green color of the year. Green is absolutely one of my favorite colors to decorate with. It's a little bit darker than normal bright green but it's pretty close. So this year, its going to be such a joy to play with this color. I love mixing green as an accent color in a gorgeous palate...

Greens and black and white is always a super chic look. I love a little pink mixed in too, pink and green is one of my favorite combos. 
This dining room in Nicky Hilton's glamorous pad is one of my favorite uses of green and pink.
Aside from being just an amazing accent color. This room makeover just shows you what a stunning color it is on its own. I love what emerald green did for this little white bedroom. 



The other day somebody was asking me about my favorite designer. I have a few that pop right to mind, Kelly Wearstler obviously being right up there. It was a given to talk about how incredibly good she is at mixing patterns, she makes anything work. That's when I took a moment to think about who is good a mixing color and right then MILES REDD popped into my head. This man is just the ultimate color mixer. I think someone once told me that his design secret is that he comes from the place that
"all colors go together"...

And I do believe he is right. He really shows us how to make magic with anything. If you feel afraid of adding some color to your space, check out this guys work. He rocks it out. 

needing. wanting. loving. COLORED BATHROOM TILE

When I first moved into my apartment here in NYC I wanted to vomit at the yellow shower tile, but after some time I discovered that it was a perfect dash of color! Lately, normal grey and off white tiles are boring me.  I am loving me some bright and colorful shower tile. It can really do great things for your bathroom. 

I love pink bathroom tile of course, but the greens really look beautiful too! 



 This new issue of Lonny is oh so good! There is way too much goodness inside, I think I have skimmed the pages more than once. My most favorite feature was this incredibly colorful and whimsical home decorated by my lady friend, Jaime Mears. Move over Jonathan Adler, this girl has got some new fun color and whimsical talent thats taking over...

 I cannot get over the patterns and different art used throughout the home, the homeowners must be such fun people to hang out with. 
 This living room is such fun. Pretty traditional with unexpected elements of funk and drama...like a leopard ottoman. 

 Anything Jackie O wins in my book...am I right?

 Such sensational styling...

 Oh, and lets not forget my favorite...black and white stripes.

COLOR LOVER: onyx, white + kelly

I don't know what is in the decorating water lately but everywhere I love I am seeing onyx black, bright white and kelly green. It's a fabulous mixture I must admit and its taking me back to some of my most favorite interiors moments. For spring, I have been wanting to add a dash of color to my apartment and I'm thinking maybe some fabulous kelly green drapes...or maybe just an emerald lamp. Oh, the possibilities are endless...

Have always loved these incredible lucite + green dining room chairs.
