Lighten Up!

Last time I was pregnant, I wanted everything to be pale blue, white and earthy-beachy-driftwood colors. I could barely tolerate the color red or any other fire color. Oddly enough, this time seems to be the opposite. I can't get enough of color and everything needs to be just a little brighter then usual. I started with my hallway, where I hung my LULU DK Bloomsbury fabric in tourmaline. It was pretty enough, but for me I needed more fruity festivity, so I took on the task of painting over all the flowers in bright edible colors. Needless to say, this hunger for sorbet has seeped into the LULU DK fabric line and I have decided to recolor many a fabrics and wallpaper...As I have already mentioned, we have a ton of new designs coming out soooon (mills are never quick enough for me) and they seem to be taking some time with these new prints. So in the meantime, I have recolored many already existing LULU DK fabrics and wallpapers...below is a sample of my Sunshine wallpaper/ fabric in a new green colorway ;-)

Here is our original blue Sunshine wallpaper in a room by Jeff Lincoln...It will also be available in a paler blue.

A Little Gem

Funny, I actually wrote this post some time ago, but never posted it...but since many of you have asked about the rug in my foyer from my post last week, here you go!
The rug makes the room! (and hush hush, it is from L.L Bean!) This is my entrance room in my apartment in NY...It took me forever to get right. It drove me crazy- then I found the red woven rug and it all came together. These rugs are great quality, arrive in about a week, come in a ton of colors and are returnable (and very well priced!). They come in 9 colors, mine is Vintage Red. Happy shopping!

Home Sweet Home

I am heading back to LA today! Alas, home sweet home and a little normality. Three months away from home is a long time. In any case, I have decided to put my NY apartment on the market. So it is for sale...I couldn't help but promote it on my blog ;-) So here I go...Great doorman building on 64th Street between Park and Lexington. Two bedrooms, huge kitchen, terrace and loft-like living room all re-constructed by me. Asking 1.999. I have lived and grown, developed my company, painted every collage on the floor of my kitchen here in this apartment for the last 14 years. I loved every day of wonderful solitude in this magical space. I leave only good vibes, which is oh so important in a home. In any case, feel free to contact me if you are truly interested.

God Bless America

At long last we have touched down onto American soil, and oh how nice it is to be home. No matter how magical, mystical, romantic, or delicious Europe may be, there is no place like home. Big breath. I met with a great company yesterday to do dinnerware, china, etc. and will have a meeting with another company this week about doing a line a children's fabrics and wallpapers....So this will be a fun year of new and exciting projects. Can't wait to share them all with you, but until then if you are out in Southampton this week, save the day Wednesday to swing by Hildreth where we will be having a LULU DK for Matouk event. I will be there showing a bunch of original artwork and you will receive a gift with purchase, prizes or just come to say hi and rub my 5 month pregnant belly ;-) I will post an invite this weekend.
