Portraits Please!

I love all the modern abstract paintings filling trendy spaces and interiors today, but I adore a traditional oil or portrait just as much!  Fussy you may say! Nope.  Beautiful portraits and vintage oils work so well with today's eclectic spaces and even mix well with other abstract paintings. Don't believe me? Just look for yourself! Oh and you may want to eat a little snack while you peruse through these gorgeous spaces.. so...  below is my recipe for a low carb microwave muffin that lets you feel like you are indulging for sure.

2 TBSP GrassFed Butter
1 Egg
3 TBSP Hazelnut flour
1/2 tsp non aluminum baking powder
1 Tbsp baking stevia
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp apple cider
1/8 cup blue berries

Melt butter in a mug
slightly cool them add dry ingredients , then egg, vanilla, cider. mix well.
Microwave for 69seconds
garnish with a dollop of that incredible yogurt- ENJOY!

At Home With Dogs And Their Designers

Finally a book that combines two of my favorite things! Dogs and Design!
Leave it to Susanna Salk to knock this one out of the design park by mixing lovable dogs and the gorgeous abodes in which they reside.   It's so much fun seeing how designers live, especially when they either have children or pets. We definitely see that these fabulous designers are not afraid to mix stunning interiors with a bit of pet hair and paw prints! Now check out these images and try to guess which dog belongs to whom... don't worry you can get the book Here to get the answers.
 Believe me you will want this, plus it is the perfect Holiday gift for both design and pet lovers alike.

AUX ABRIS - walls of art!

 I was shopping at my favorite showroom"John Rosselli"today at the D&D Building and saw a new display of wall coverings that stopped me in my tracks. The company is Aux Abris!  They are a boutique design studio that specializes in fine wallpapers with highly textured surfaces and saturated pigment.  Colors range from monochrome to wild and everything in between.   I loved the murals, ikats and batiks but really all of them were wonderful.  To see more go HERE!
P.S.  I also got to chat with Sheila Bridges while she was picking some fabulous paper samples for her client, so basically a great day!
