I didn’t realize just how much I love feathers… until the other day. I was on a run on Saturday morning and I saw one resting on the concrete. Simple and gray, it may have been run over countless times, but it was still as perfect as ever.
I love the spiritual, natural, carefree vibe they give off.
Drooling over this shop in Amsterdam called Harvest & Company!
And who can talk about feathers and not mention Another Feather‘s amazing studio space?!
You know what shape I’m loving right now? (I’ll give you one guess, and it may or may not be in the title of this post.)
The lovely scallop shape is derived from my favorite childhood shell with the same name. Its curved edges takes me back to when I was a 7-year-old seeing the ocean for the first time, and the hunt for the perfect one. The form is soothing and organic, but creates incredible interest when turned into a pattern. It can be retro. It can be modern. Originating from nature, the scallop shape is timeless.
Can I have these tables? Pretty PRETTY please??!

So 2013 is the year of Emerald according to Pantone. Instead of boring you with yet another post about it, I will introduce its distant relative, and equally as fashionable counterpart: mint. Mint is popping up everywhere, from the runway to furniture pieces.
It’s serene and refreshing. Pair it with a creamy beige or khaki! Here’s some inspiration shots….
In a sophisticated bedroom.
In a cozy living area.
Even in a kids playroom.
In fashion too.
Oh and for weddings I just love this palette!!
