Light and Bright

We are safely back from our fun trip to NYC. The Christmas lights were beautiful, and the store windows were unbelievable! This was my first time there at Christmas and the Rockefeller Center tree was even more amazing in person. I would love to share pics with you and will. . . . as soon as I find the USB cord for my camera.

In the meantime, I'll share my favorite pages from the latest Lonny magazine.

These are from designer Vanessa De Vargas's beautiful beach home. Maybe it's because I've been on such a kick with dark colors lately, but I absolutely love the lightness and brightness of her home.

This is one big tufted sofa! Love it and her nesting/coffee tables:

WHAT can I paint this color green in my house? And, what a great bamboo mirror and lamps; not much about this that I don't like:

Don't be afraid to put a bed in front of a window. I remember they used to do this all the time on Trading Spaces and would cover the entire window wall with something really dark and heavy, which was a little scary. . . . This picture, however, shows you can do it and still keep the room bright with the right window treatment,bedding and paint:

Now off to look for that USB cord.
