Pipe Down by Farrow & Ball
Outrageous Orange by Benjamin Moore
Black Lacquer by Benjamin Moore
I love all three of these paint colors. I have used the first two in my apartment. The grey looks great in a living room and the orange I painted in my work space. The last color by Benjamin Moore, Black Lacquer, is used above by painting a bathroom door, but it is not to dark being surrounded by the playfulness of the blue!

These three Christmas cards are all handmade, Martha style. The first is an accordion style card that would take no time to make up. the next two are more tedious but well worth the $ you will save by making your own! Merry Merry!
Holiday season you have a million parties...why not dress it up with one of these fun clutches! Made by Corey Renee these clutches add the party to any outfit!
So I saw these in Sweet Paul Mag and looked the look of them. They are made by Sarah Foote out of veneer strips, dots, and free flowing lines, which Sarah calls these lamps spaghetti, seaweed, and hydrangea. They are simple but give off a complexity to them that will add texture to any space. Love them!

The frame of the day is a Kate Spade Frame...I love the black n white picture in it already...so I thought I'd go with one too!

Their wedding is 5 months to the day... Cheers!
