{colour inspiration: buttercream}









. . . fashionably late once more and it's quickly becoming clear that things will continue to be a little sporadic around here as summertime's chaos continues and that's what makes it so beautiful -- the dashing about, the projects & plans and late lunches -- only to slow things down {just a little} on weekends, when the world slips away and there is nothing left but the sound of crashing waves and everything comes in shades of buttercream . . .

hope you're having a wonderful week,
xo

{recent colour inspiration:}
* petal pink & french grey
* driftwood
* olive & dusky taupe
* more buttercream

{two lovely things: let's celebrate}



{two lovely things:} in a crisp white cabinet alongside glasses, china, and a crystal candelabra, or atop an ultra-modern & silver steel shelf, whether mixed or exclusively champagne, always lovely to have a place for summertime entertaining . . .

{also:} more ideas here & here & here

{p.s.} and while we're on the topic of champagne, had mentioned on twitter the other day that p had gone out
last week to pick up a bottle, and returned {along with the champagne} with an ipad -- how lovely it is to view this site on it, and also looking forward to uploading favourite photographs, books, and the new gourmet magazine when it comes out

{late summer nights}


. . . crazy, crazy for this stunningly beautiful valentino dress, belted and worn over a vintage christian dior haute couture brassiere and utterly perfect for this summer's endless dinner reservations and sultry nights in the city . . .

{p.s.} nearly always drawn to softer colours & focus in photography, and yet quite adore the drama and high contrast of this shot

{two lovely things: eames molded plywood chairs}



{two lovely things:} around the dining table or beneath a gallery wall, there is just something about the perfectly graceful lines of eames chairs -- still -- that adds a beautiful elegance to any room and no matter how many times you may come across them, they always remain classic and utterly timeless . . .

{p.s.} and while you may have seen these images before, they are here as a glimpse of very, very exciting things to come xo
