Spring Break in New Mexico

Hello all!!  I hope you have all been well.  I can't believe I have been a stranger for so long, I apologize.

I wanted to share photos from my recent visit to Ruidoso, Taos, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.  My parents go every year with some very close family friends and its been about 5 years since my last visit.  This year we were so excited to join them and my sister came too.  I had a blast getting to spend so much time with them.  Santa Fe was definitely my favorite part.  I fell in love with the architecture, art and jewelry.  What an inspiring place to be - its like a little world all its own.  I can understand how these artists are so moved by their surroundings.  My sister, mom and I almost cleaned them out of jewelry!  Here are a few photos I took.  Enjoy!

Pink Perfection

I think on some level, every girl loves pink!  Whether its bright and bold or soft and feminine, it can make a room feel sophisticated, glam and a bit girly - in a good way!  I think the trick to making pink look a little more elegant is to bring in some darker neutrals and natural elements like the seisal rug.  Below is one for my favorite pink Living Rooms designed by Armonia Decors.  I just love the tufted club chairs.

Showhouse Favorites

If you haven't discovered Atlanta Homes Magazine, I would suggest heading to their site asap.  They cover some fabulous homes and talented designers.  Featured on their site are photos of their latest Show House and it is incredible.  Here are a few of my favorite rooms.

Loving the chocolates and neutrals in this room designed by Phoebe Howard....and that accent chair is amazing!

 Bold color, texture, lucite and a splash of animal print are a perfect mix for this glamorous room.  Designed by Amy D. Morris

Terrace by Bill Hugdens.  Gets me excited for Spring and outdoor restaurants.
