Decorating Your Home With The Pink/Green Combination
When you think of pink and green decor, Lilly Pulitzer, Dorothy Draper and Carlton Varney come to mind. Their bold use of these colors have brought them great success. Whether you love bold and bright or prefer it a bit more classic and subdued there is a pink and green room out here with your name on it. I have posted a variety of images to show you how these colors can come together in any form to give you a spectacular interior. There are so many wonderful shades of pink and green to…
Mario Buatta’s Romantic Interiors
Although known as the Prince of Chintz for his love of using Chintz fabrics in his interiors, I would like to call interior designer Mario Buatta, if I may… the Master of Color. Famed for his English country style interiors that are influenced by the 18th and 19th centuries, Buatta’s rooms are timeless; they suggest comfort, formality, and informality at the same time. His mastery in using color is profound- where the rooms are the subject matter, he is the artist. His color application to…
Cote de Texas #7
This week's Cote de Texas Top Ten - #7, goes to the Queen of Clutter, Lynn Von Kersting. I can assure you that Von Kersting, a Los Angeles interior designer will be the only Top Ten pick that is more famous for owning a restaurant than an interior design business. As the proprietress of Los Angeles' most famous star gazing haunt, The Ivy, Von Kersting's interior design profession is not as well known to the public. Adding to her mystique, her interiors are not published often, she has no web…
Dark Glossy Walls and Chinoiserie
Diamond Baratta I am a huge fan of rooms that combine dark glossy walls and Chinoiserie.

I love the room above - traditional, but fun. Here are more examples below, all by Mario Buatta.

How Does Your Garden Room Grow?
You'll be excited to know that my experiment with growing fruit on my balcony has proven, yes, fruitful! Okay, so you may not be all that excited about it, but I am. My strawberry plant has produced two berries so far. Now that I've become an urban gardener (wink, wink), I've taken a new shining to both gardening and garden room decor. A dear friend recently gave me a 1998 copy of Garden Room Style by Peter Marston of Marston & Langinger fame. Marston & Langinger, as you probably know, are…

Kimberly Schlegel Whitman
It seems to be about this time every year that I make a few changes in my beauty routine. Maybe it is the changes in the weather or bit of time to go shopping in the beauty department over spring break? I'm not exactly sure but I like to mix it up as spring approaches. On a whim, I bought some amazing products from Sunday Riley a couple of weeks ago. The bold packaging caught my eye and the quick and capable sales gal gave me the extra boost I needed to make the purchase while out shopping…
