I think its all about the color POP!  I am loving subdued shades of grey, white, and other neutrals, with electric pops of color.  I am definitely interested in yellow at the moment, and thinking of enhancing my current palette with some yellow!  I always say, stick with a basic color story and add your pops of color with inexpensive accessories that add interest and personality to your space.  I love this coffee table in hot pink mixed with this darker palette!  It's just amazing.  Now this is how you add personality to a room!

bathroom art

Doesn't this Roy Liechtenstein print look great?  We have it our bathroom.  I'm just loving a yellow color pop lately.  Perhaps it will be my new decorating color for the spring???


I am in love with this.  We just got two aloe plants from Home Depot, and we put it on our dining room table along with this fancy centerpiece from a garden shop in Middletown, Rhode Island called Chaves Gardens.  It adds a touch of, "Greek-ness" to the apartment!

end tables

One thing that I like to do is to combine different types of end tables.  For example, in our living room we have a white lacquer end table on one end of the couch, and a white metal and frosted glass end table on the other end.  In the bedroom, we're using a small decorative box next to the bed, and we also have a small trunk in the living room.  I think it is important to switch these around every once in a while, because it is a quick and easy way to update a room .

delicious dish

Country Ketchup

One of my absolute favorite gourmet food brands is Stonewall Kitchen.  I am such a huge fan of all of their products, which are available in a lot of gourmet food stores.  I usually get mine at Clement's Market in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, or the Gray Goose Cookery in Mystic, Connecticut (which is a cook's paradise!).  The last time we went to Mystic, we picked up a bottle of the country ketchup (which retails for $6.50 but is DEFINITELY worth it!)
