THE CHARM OF RED

this post by coco+kelly appeared a while back……. wanted to share it anyway, cause it showcases the charm of red as an accent color so well.

and because those roses were arranged by magdalena’s flowers for pamela skaist levy’s atelier, a place where fashion magic happens…..

it can be quite challenging to wear a red dress or to hang out in a room with red wallpaper…….

red as an accent color is pretty perfect on the other hand…… think red lips or red nail polish on a woman dressed in black, browns, or an amazing green or turquoise…… this is the effect of red flowers on a room…….

i personally love to have red roses or red carnations for table decorations and parties.


so feminine, so strong, so look at me, i’m here to celebrate.

no money, no problem

what do you mean “no money, no problem”???????


you have at least one pretty vase, pitcher, cup or drinking glass, no?

sometimes “vases” from the kitchen make amazing vessels to present greens or flowers!!!!!!!!!!


and then take a little stroll through your yard, neighborhood or park…… i’m sure you can find some leaves, branches or a couple of blooms….. and voilà, you have a little floral accent in your house which will brighten your and everybody else’s spirit……

accents around the house to cheer you up

on a moody day it’s good to have little accents around the house to cheer you up……
when i left the gym (!!) this morning i saw these hibiscus blooms (this is california!) smiling at me, and couldn’t resist to take one home with me……

this is a yellow “filled” hibiscus……. they only last for a couple of days…… what a show though…….


the skirt of the little ballet dancer goes perfectly with the puffy skirt of the hibiscus, no??
