{valentine's inspiration: breakfast at tiffany's}










. . . soft mohair throws and paper flower hearts, elegant monograms and pretty lacy envelopes, sheer silk blouses and sexy pencil skirts -- there's romance in the air, and in dusky and dreamy shades of mid-february blue . . .

Sigh. I am SO feeling Valentine's Day this year---last year it passed me by, but I'm completely into it now! And I love seeing ideas beyond the typical red and pink. Blue? Yes please!

Gorgeous as usual :)

Amanda [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Love this. Tiffany blue is my favorite color ever. Gorgeous. And I love all the doilies! Valentine's day wouldn't be valentine's day with delicate white doilies.

Jordana [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

So so so pretty. I can't choose a fave...perhaps the heart doily garland? I love bringing a little Holly Golightly into my life...usually it's in the shape of a little black dress.

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

So gorgeous! You do have the loveliest finds!

Beatriz [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

You totally read my mind!! I posted a collection of Tiffany pieces last week that are actual affordable for Valentine's. What could be more perfect than a little blue box? Loved the inspired photos :)

love the color - my favorite and the color of our bedroom - very soothing while a bit of punch, and of course, the glam color of Tiffany's....just watched that great movie with my teenage daughter after not seeing it for many years and so funny to watch again from another perspective - keep up the good work and please stop by for an interior designer's perspective at Nest by Tamara at http://nestnestnest.blogspot.com
