my favorite pinterest pins this week are a reflection of what i’ve been doing and what’s going on creatively in my head.

coming off my set up at high point market i’m still very inspired by cobalt blue and abstract art. the last few days i have been newport rhode island to make our final plans for the 2017 coastal living show house i’m designing, therefore shingles, american flags, masses of blue hydrangea, stripes and clap board walls are on my mind. 

this weeks favorite pins tell the story. the story of where we’ve been and where we are going! 

Kayce Hughes


the best thing about the world i am in is that i get to meet great talent, it’s even better when they turn out to be good friends. 

kayce hughes is a brilliant artist who lives in nashville. i met her through my friends sarah bartholomew and gen sohr. kayce creates beautiful art that speaks to my soul. we have collaborated on several occasions. most recently she did some art for my spring 2017 henredon furniture market set up. 

kayce is brilliant and everything she creates is beautiful, the big news is you can have her art too. kayce has a new instagram account @kayce_hughes_art in which she offers up 3 paintings a day. the first person to comment gets to have the painting for $100.00 plus shipping. i don’t know about you, but i’m sold. 

i love kayce, thankful for her friendship and her talent, and it fills with me with great joy to share more about her and her work with all of you! 

Oscar de la Renta Bridal Spring 2018


there are so many fashion weeks. did you know there is a bridal week? there is. the spring 2018 bridal collections are being shown right now. 

i thought the oscar de la renta spring 2018 bridal show was really beautiful. new designers fernando garcia and laura kim paid tribute to oscar by creating a collection inspired by gardens, which was oscars first love.

the late designer was known for incorporating garden themes in his designs with floral lace, 3-D flower petals, and painterly prints. the new design team took it one step further by adding not only flowers, but ferns, vines and leaves, too. so beautiful!

i know the new design team has a lot to live up to and of course the new challenge to make the brand feel modern and relevant for young women today. i think they did it! oscar would have loved the gowns, but it’s the carefree styling, fresh setting and happy little girls that truly made it feel like modern love.
