July 2012


I’m a huge fan of John Robshaw’s Indian printed textiles and soft goods… And as if his super soft, bohemian bedding wasn’t lust-worthy enough, I was pleased to learn that he’s just added a selection of oh-so-stylish beds and headboards to his ever-growing assortment of products. It’s no secret that Robshaw has had a long-time love affair with India and the influence can be seen in the three available headboard styles which feature shapes inspired by Indian and Moorish architecture. Each piece is handmade in the USA and customizable in your choice of 13 John Robshaw signature fabrics which are …

So Haute - Go for the Gold

I don’t know about you but I’ve been struck by Olympic fever! I watched the games all weekend and a highlight was seeing US swimmers Ryan Lochte and Dana Vollmer, not just win gold medals for our country but also break world records in the process.

The property looks so peaceful and magical…I would love go there some day!

Made of heavy duty cotton duck canvas, it comes in a ton of colors and …

I think I might just be having the best summer ever. I’ve truly been enjoying every non-working moment…traveling, visiting museums, enjoying good eats and spending QT with family and friends. It’s flying by so quickly…I can’t believe we’re already half way through July! Thanks to my current addiction, Instagram, here’s a quick look at what I’ve been up to so far this summer!
