Happy Easter!

White. Bright. Delight.

I spotted these ceramic candle holders in the home department at Nordstrom. For only $46 total, these two modern and refreshing forms are an excellent gift for a new homeowner or to keep for yourself. See the light!

Rock On’ Mon!

I’m always distracted by beautiful things. So naturally I was in awe when I arrived to the Rockhouse Hotel in Negril Jamaica. I had read so many great reviews about the resort located on the cliffs so when planning to find a place to soak in the sun, I signed this one up. Constructed of stone and literally hanging on the cliffs over clear blue waters, this stylish resort made it on my favorites list.

Say Cherry!

Okay, so I finally visited the famed Cherry Blossoms in DC and have to report that they were gorgeous! I snapped about 100 photos (I do get carried away with the photos -thank the heavens and the smarty-pants for digital). The Tidal Basin was so crowded and the weather was so nice. The traffic however was so unwelcome. Think about a weekday visit if you plan to pop into DC next year.

Design Observer

My researching brother recently sent me a link to a design blog called Design Observer. Its full of post from various contributing design-a-holics. I work with an interior designer who has now owns three adorable cats and I thought the Design Observer post about Designers and Their Cats was so cute. DesignObserver.com

Umbrella, pretty Bella.

You know it when you see it. Something that you glance to and say, “ahhh cute”. That was my reaction when I looked at the sweet umbrellas manufactured at Santa Barbara Umbrella. Its raining outside and tulips are popping up everywhere so these are a perfect anecdote to wet spring days (and sunny ones ahead). Originally inspired by classic European market umbrellas, they to offer innovative and exciting new umbrella styles to meet the demanding needs of the design community. Thanks SBU! I can already taste the Lemoncello.
