ZING!

.

Don’t get me wrong.

It’s not that I don’t love the whole GREY/BEIGE/GREIGE  thaing that’s swept through the global design community and settled upon us like a tasteful, gunmetal scrim…

but right now, with it being summer and all, I’m feeling much more of a

ZING!!!

in my heart.

I want to bring all this lovely colour and light into my home for these long summer dayz…

How about you?

Come, let’s listen to cool new music and get  some  Zingy  inspiration together!

My friends know well my love of Pink & Orange :)

Hiking Romero Canyon in Montecito

Holy shit . Goodness Gracious Yikes! It’s Friday already?? How’d that happen?!  Let’s see…I had company all week, worked on the design for our new Boy Barn, went for a great hike, watched the season premiere of Housewives of New York City (double yikes)…and BAM here we are already!  I guess what I’m trying to confess is that I didn’t pull a “Friday Favourites” together for you this week.

Instead, I’m  sharing a delicious confection of one of MY VERY FAVOURITE colour combos

and a sweet new song by Lykke Li;

Enjoy!
