Mita Corsini Bland


i’m a big fan of water colors of beautiful rooms. mita corsini bland is a wonderful artist and the best at this rare form of art. i would love to someday have water color rendering of all my design concepts to present to clients, that’s how designers used to present their creative ideas to clients.

most often you see water colors of rooms in bright colors with layers of pattern and print. very rarely do you see neutral ones. here are a few that i just discovered by mita. some of the rooms will look familiar…can you guess which ones are of rooms designed by veere grenney?

i’m so inspired by mita’s work, especially these pieces with neutral tones. 

2017 Emmy Awards


forget who was best dressed tonight at the emmy’s, what we should be so thrilled about was this evenings celebration of women.

good for ‘big little lies’, good for ‘handmaid’s tale’, good for Kate Mckinnon……i’m so proud of reese and nicole…dolly, jane and lily were there….so was carol burnett and cicely tyson, and we can’t forget oprah. it feels like women are being empowered and lifted up and i for one think we’d be better off if more women were in charge!

….of course i had to do a best dressed list tonight. there were a lot of standouts, it was also a good emmy year for women’s fashion – the women in calvin klein by appointment and oscar de la renta were my favorites.

congrats ladies- women rule!!
