Blue and Green Kitchen

I found this image on my hard drive that I had saved in 2009. Oh, the era before Pinterest! Oh, the folders upon folders of “Some Things I Like!” Oh, the inability to track down where I had gotten the image from.

I don’t like to share unsourced images, so I set to tracking this one down. I finally found it (Remodelista credits the kitchen to a Parisian architect, Phillippe Harden), and was rewarded with additional photos of the space.

I’ve got to get cracking on those curtains in the kitchen so I could play around with the palette in Photoshop. I don’t know that I want to go this colorful, but… maybe I kind of do now? I have to give it some thought.

Fab Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Fab Valentine's Day Gift Guide

I’m working with Fab again, this time to share my favorite quirky finds from their Valentine’s Day gift shop. As usual, I spotted some of my favorite independent designers among the offerings.

  1. Son Of A Sailor Durango Pink Necklace
    Pink and brass? Thank you for combining my two favorites into something I can wear around my neck.

  2. Rococco-LA Flowering Heart Print
    Such a good print.

  3. AMINIMAL Central Park Earrings
    This would be a sweet token to remember a New York romance by. Or for architecture nerds and urban planners – whatevs.

  4. Core Bamboo Heart Cutting Board
    Is there symbolism in taking a knife to a heart-shaped cutting board? Maybe, but it’s just so cute.

  5. The Social Dept Baby Tee
    I carried a watermelon.

  6. M.G. BAKER Bow Tie
    I love this. Brandon wore a pink tie to our wedding, but bow ties are having their moment now.

  7. ASHKAHN a.bird, b. booty Print
    Hey professor, what’s another word for pirate treasure?

  8. 1965 Playboy Pair
    Dirty magazines seem kitschy and campy when they’re vintage.

  9. chain chain chained Necklace
    Brandon gave me this necklace for Christmas. It’s really sweet, and I’ve been wearing mine a lot.

  10. RIFLE + RADFORD Rafferty Ring
    Aquamarine plays nicely with just about everything.

Fab Holiday Gift Guide

I’ve been a member of Fab for a long time. I’ve bought some awesome things through them, like my Eames bird and my giant botanical print; they’re good at featuring great design and quirky stuff from independent designers. Today, I’m working with them to share my favorites from the Holiday Shop. Usually Fab makes items available for only a short time, but everything in the holiday shop (and below) is available through the end of the year.

    Perfect for derby ladies.
