A Merry Red Christmas Eve

I am planning my virtual outfit to wear on Christmas Eve. This year has been very special and there is alot to celebrate and to be thank-ful for. Red seems appropriate and just feels right for this time of year. In a perfect world this is what I would love to have in my closet and jewellery chest. What do you think?
Lida Baday silk skirt & Donna Karen turtle neck
Cartier "Le Basier du Dragon" 18K white gold & ruby earrings based on Art Deco style. The lucky thread is tied, as when making a wish.
Manolo Blahnik shiny red sequin heels trimmed with satin piping.

Cartier Ruby & Diamond Ring

Cartier Classic Diamond Watch with red crocodile strap

And to finish off the outfit Cartier Delices Perfume
Sweet dreams of a Merry Red Christmas

White Flowers for a White Christmas

There's something about white flowers at Christmas that I like better than at any other time of the year.

Work in progress - Master Bedroom

Patron Saint Bridge 30" x 48"

This is a piece of artwork just purchased for a client's home . The artist is Gretchen Gammell. I particularly
like her newest work which is a whimsical tribute to the "transitions and narratives of modern female life". She uses a muted palette and languid, girlish characters. It is going to hang over the bed in the Master Bedroom on a concrete wall. The draperies are going to be full length silvery gray taffeta silk which will compliment the concrete wall. The bedding will be all white with throw cushions in a bright pink Designers Guild fabric to pick out the color of the flowers in the dress in the artwork. I found really cool lamps for the bedside tables. The bases are covered in birch bark and the shades are chocolate taffeta and sit on a clear lucite base.

The Soul of Interior Design

I was particularily struck by her post "Touch of Blue" and I have taken the liberty of reprinting the following to share with you as it touches a cord deep inside of me. I believe that your surroundings effect your world and everything you do. We may not be conscious of this, but on a deeper level life is better when we are happy in our homes. William Morris was quoted as saying "Have nothing in your homes that is not useful or beautiful." So in the spirit and soul of beautiful interiors.....enjoy.

"When you realise that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. (My bedroom was usually a mess at this point)Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration!!"
