Likes and dislikes….



A few new items on the market that is worth sharing.  I’m loving the modern elegant look for lounge furniture seating with the black and crisp grey from Modern Line.

I love the silver leaf appliquéd linen from Go Linens that beautifully sets off the orchid centerpiece.   The French have used the combo of silver/grey and orchid for many years now and it’s nice to see it have a resurgence here in the US.

On the down side, mini trash cans for appetizers or dessert?  Hmnn… finding it hard to swallow that one!

Oscar Party photos



Here are more Oscar after party photos.  Floral and decorated walls continue to be popular as they envelop an area and help further the ambiance.  Paper flowers form a backdrop to a food station at the Seth McFarlane after party.

Oscar Party Pics



Everybody loves to see the after party photos from the Oscar post parties.  It seems like Radiant Orchid, the color of the year was embraced by the organizers  of the Oscar after parties for a stunning effect.   Following the lead from last year of doing away with  formal sit down dinners, this year featured  50 varieties of tray passed items amid lounge furniture seating.

Ever wonder where the presenters hang out waiting their turn to present?  The so called “green room” is anything but green.  Designed by Architectural  Digest, this room suggest Old World Hollywood for sure.

COLOR OF THE YEAR



Every year Pantone (the global authority on color) triumphantly selects and announces the color of the year.   Unlike last year’s color – emerald green – this year is bound to be a favorite.  Radiant Orchid is described by  the company as a “captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones”.  Pantone claims that consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional an artistic equilibrium”  - how about just saying we are choosing a happy cheerful palette after last year’s color bombed?

Here is a photo that I think incorporate the color tones  in a particularly beautiful and elegant  way:
