Kelly for Groundworks + more...

I'm loving Kelly Wearstler's refined fabric collaboration for Lee Jofa's Groundworks collection. Charcoals, blacks and cream tones paired with bright shades are sitting well with me right now! A couple of my girl friend's and I are thinking of heading to Miami for a getaway this Fall. (the plus side to using my Amex too much - free miles) I vote that we stay at the Miami-Viceroy. I'll at least grab a drink there to take in the amazing design details! I've been a fan of Kelly's work since I was in grad school, that was about 12 years ago. (I hate to date myself) The entire design hits on so many details that I'm currently adoring! See my mentions below! I love that Kelly marches to the beat of her own drum, her designs and fabrics feel more artist and dynamic then anything else.

When I move I think I need to cover something in the charcoal and cream faux bois print (top pillow above)

LOVE: Limed wood paired with aqua and deep cobalt
Architectural outdoor spaces
Graphic chairs, tufting and limey-yellow ( a color predicted to trend next winter)
Rope details and small club chairs - working on a nursery with rope details right now!
Oversized lamps and tufting! (Did I mention tufting ? )
And as ALWAYS, fret work..I'm always searching for the next best fretwork design.

First off, I want to wish my friend Heather Hogan Roberts all the best with her wonderful new design venture Ivy and Vine. Heather and I haven't officially met but that's the fabulous thing about the small, creative design and blogging world. Blogging connects you with like and style minded people that without it, you'd never cross paths with. Heather is a kind person, has a great eye for one of a kind pieces for the home and originally hails from the Boston area! 

Ivy and Vine is hosting a curated collection of pieces on One King's Lane this Friday, June 29th at 11 a.m. EST. You don't want to miss this event! Here's a peek at her latest finds..Aren't they amazing? I thought you'd agree! 

On a side note, I'm off to Chicago for some design business before the birds awake tomorrow a.m., more on that later. You won't be hearing from me for a day or two! Have a great day. xx

I NEED this piece!
