luxe + lillies: February 2011

Monday, February 28, 2011


Going away for a few days always ushers in a renewed sense of inspiration, and sometimes it reminds you of why you love certain things you have always been partial to.
So beautiful, and each piece with a unique organic character, Coral is a decorative accessory I will never tire of.  A grouping like this one of different corals well utilizes the space without being generic...
 With all the colors, shape, and styles its easy to find a piece that suits you. I love seeing corals mounted on lucite which I often see at HomeGoods! and on other fun stands as well, its a great way to add some height to a table.

 One piece is the perfect finishing accent to a table, bookcase, on on top of a stack of books!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Sorry for the very delayed posting today. Its a busy day here, its my mom and M's birthday's - so there is much celebrating being done! 

Something I have taken such delight in since returning from Switzerland is afternoon tea.
Its been a great time to unwind from the day, warm up from the frigid temperatures and ever mounting snow outside, and enjoy this age old tradition. It also really has me thinking how much I would adore a quality tea set to my registry for the upcoming big event.  I think they have such a beautiful quality about them, no matter what style you are into...

This is my absolute favorite, isn't it perfection?

I would love to know, what is your favorite tea I'm a Twinnings girl myself, or tea time tradition?

This portfolio of Designers' Fashion Week essentials styled and shot by The Coveteur is simply stunning. The styling is somehow sophisticated, simple, and so very chic all at once... genius!

Lately, some great entryways have caught my eye. They are such great spaces to create a vignette that speaks about your home as soon as you open the door... they're also a great place to catch a few everyday items. But, beyond the keys and sunglasses, I love an entryway that's highly styled, and I think these spaces get it right...

There are so many differing elements in this vignette and they all work together flawlessly. The clear glass lamp lets light and space into the area. 

The unassuming glamour of this one is perfect. Its clean, but decorated. 

Highly Styled - this is what I'm talking about. While there is not room for much else than decor, it really makes a bold and exciting statement!

P.s. Today my dear sweet, lifelong friend Kara has made a post in honor of my engagement. Please pay her a little visit - it will be worth it! Her blog is addicting!

Today is one of those days where its time for winter to end, the sun to come out, and melt all the snow away. That, or a little getaway would be perfect. Nothing extravagant, just a little place for a few simple pleasures- rest + relaxation.  These would make for the perfect room right now...

and this one, the perfect place to enjoy some great food, and lounge the day away...

Simple intricacies. I need more of this in my life. These subtle hints of color in the form of bordered fabrics adds a little punch and a classic air to these spaces. Bordered fabrics are perfect for mixing into rooms with great existing colors and patterns, or even into a mild palette for that little something the room is missing...

pretty perfect, no?
