Color Splash

Interior Designer Jamie Drake has exibited extreme talent in this colorful New York home in the current issue of Traditional Home. This is certainly an issue that you don't want to miss. It is a keeper, filled with so much more than I am able to share with you here.

No doubt upon entry into this beautiful home that this artsy couple loves color and mix.

This painting by Andy Warhol blends beautifully among tradtional furnishings and accessories.

The eye is simultaneously drawn to an array of pieces in this colorful room.  I think that the use of a mirror to reflect the Warhol painting is brilliant.

This sitting area is traditional and peaceful.

Such a coolness and elegance in design is exibited in this dining room.

A lavender grasscloth covers the wall in this bright purple sitting area ...

and lavender bedroom.

This area has a mix of several influences.

I really like how Drake combined a mirrored piece, the gold legs on the bathroom sink, the black and white tile, and the traditional wallpaper.

I can't find a thing I would change in this light, airy kitchen.

I hope that you enjoyed this post. I now have a decorating bug.  See you tomorrow for a treat from Southern Living Magazine!

Embracing Etiquette with Teresa continued... see introduction post (1-29-10.)

THE CAR ~ Good Manners = Safety

There are two important subjects to mention before. You are to always buckle your seatbelt and make certain that your guest have their belt fastened. Refrain from drinking while driving. This is prohibited in all states.

Handling an automobile is a great responsibility, and you should never put on makeup, eat, or talk on your cell phone. DO NOT TEXT WHILE DRIVING! Always pay attention to the road. It is your responsibility. Pull over to the side of the road if you need to take care of anything else.

Go the speed limit, use your blinker, and do not tailgate. These considerations are mannerly.

Tomorrow we cover Road Rage.

See you soon,
