For as long as I can remember I have always associated the month of March with shades of purple… odd, no? If you asked me to describe March I would use ‘eggplant’ and ‘plum’ in my summary. I think it was a memory association game I must have used as a child to help me remember the months of the year and days of the week (for example, in my mind Monday is red and Wednesday is yellow – and I have no idea why).
Anyhow, March is upon us and the first buds of spring are beginning to peek through all around. It’s fresh and enlivening! Just like the color purple.
Back in April I discovered designer Angie Hranowsky while perusing one of my favorite blogs, Ish and Chi (not to worry – soon to be featured as part of PDB’s Friday Interview series).
And guess what? Her entire house exudes shades of lavender, aubergine and violet in the classiest and cleanest of ways.
Need a bit more inspiration in the lilac realm? Here are a few more rooms to bring out the spring in your home (the last being one of my favorites). Continue reading →

Ready for a little spring eye candy? I almost fell out of my chair when I came across this absolutely adorable ‘recycled chic’ backyard party. I’m loving the idea of a *sweet* celebration for the coming months!
A vintage candy & cakes theme would work just as well for a shower, a wedding or even Easter.
Style Me Pretty shares this lovely photoshoot, complete with colorful poms, a delicious dessert table (make that the most adorable bookshelf you’ve ever seen!) and vintage place settings. I’m head-over-heels in love with every detail.
I can’t decide which perfect little piece of this party I like best. Is it the mis-matched paper prints (on the signs, as drawer liners, the background for the cake table, as place mats…) or the amazing floral designs (did you see that tablescape up top??) or the mouth-watering desserts!
More delicious photos - including the invitations, adorable handmade pillows and petite cakes - after the jump!Continue reading →
