Feeling Pink’ish

Pink is not for baby nurseries anymore!  I am excited about my newest home decor project that has brought pink decor to a new level!  Deciding on colors for any room in your home can be a daunting task, but I can tell you that bringing in pink has been the best decision I have made for this new Florida home I am working on!  It all started in Hildreth’s in Southampton when I spotted this pinkish colored couch with aqua piping.  I knew at that very moment that the color scheme for the Florida house would be pink and aqua.


Since that initial find, I am surprised how easy it is to find all things wonderful that are pink to add to the decor of this house.  I am a big fan of Homegoods and have found quite a few pink accessories there to complete the look including pink buoys!

I purchased giant conch shells at a local surf shop that have a beautiful hue of pink.  This makes a great accent piece on a coffee table, book shelf  or window sill.

Here are some inspirational pictures that make decorating with pink so much fun!


Area Artist: Jamesport Candle

There is nothing I love more than finding a new product made in the area in which I live. Today, while shopping at Bauer’s Gift Shoppe on Love Lane in Mattituck, I came across some beautiful scented candles, made by a company called Jamesport Candle. Jamesport Candle is a mother/daughter team on the North Fork of Long Island.

I love everything about their delicious smelling candles. Each candle hand dipped with 100 percent American Soy Wax which emit little or no soot. They do not contain lead and are a renewable resource, unlike petroleum. Soybean wax is biodegradable and non-toxic. Also, these candles are made right here on The North Fork. They’re home grown and produced! Supporting our local craft and business people is a good thing!!!!!! If you are looking for a hostess gift, a birthday gift or even a treat for yourself, take a look at Jamesport Candle and know that your purchase helps in supporting the local economy!

Nautical Wall Coverings

Ralph Lauren Wallpapered Powder Room

Wall coverings are a great way to give an existing bathroom a fun, new, updated look. While I see them used in many different rooms, I personally prefer to wallpaper small rooms such as powder rooms and laundry rooms.

If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of print on an entire room, one way to break things up is to use bead board along the bottom half of the walls. Bead board can be horizontal or vertical, painted white, or even mahogoney. Be creative when it comes up picking out your wall coverings and bead board.

I’ve found that the best place to find nautical/coastal printed wallpaper is at Ralph Lauren Home. They have an abundance of map and chart prints, nautical knot prints, and seaside prints. They can sometimes be hard to find, but be sure to check out Steve’s Blind’s and Wallpaper. They have a wide selection of Ralph Lauren books and are great to work with…and better yet, their selections are often on sale.
