Perfect Marie Antoinette Blue!

It was a lovely but chilly day in NYC. We spent it shopping and eating and then of course a quick peak at the famous Laduree! I was immediately drawn to the Marie Antoinette Macaron. I think it was definitely because of it's gorgeous color! A deep Robin's Egg Blue with a lovely cream center, it was almost to pretty to eat, but of course I did. It was delicious and I am glad I did my TRX class before we went because I ate a second one as well!  All the way home I was a bit obsessed with that lovely color and it's name,"Marie Antoinette"! As soon as I got home I had to search for a paint match and interiors that even Marie Antoinette herself would love with that intriguing Robin's Egg Blue.  I think I found some beauties and I believe that Dix Blue from Farrow and Ball may come very close to my new obsession Laduree's (Marie Antoinette Blue)!

That Case Piece Has Character!

As I search for chests and commodes for a client's foyer I am meeting a lot of case pieces with great character. I love entering a foyer or a room and being drawn to a piece that has personality, you could have almost nothing else if that piece can carry the weight of the room! I thought I would share a few lovelies that I found in my pursuit of great character.
Enjoy and stay dry and warm wherever you are!
