Add 2 parts of your favorite vodka, shake, and enjoy!
I'll be at happy hour tonight with my hubby, his work friends, and my sister to celebrate the new "permanent" job offer she received yesterday and to watch the World Series - because it's been that kind of week!
I've had diamonds on my brain lately. I'm a happy newly wed, and my husband did a wonderful job at surprising me with a beautiful ring that he designed himself(a little helpful hints on my part did just the trick). Jewelry to me is a very personal thing. It takes a special someone to really know what jewelry will speak to their loved one. I just adore a man who knows how to pick jewelry, and do it well! Here are my all time favorite diamond rings and settings.
Harry Winston's micro-pave cushion cut diamond - my favorite setting, hands down!
This emerald cut looks stunning all by itself set on a diamond band. Not a lot of fuss going on here, and the diamond speaks for itself.
Again, Harry Winston's micro-pave cushion cut...because I can't stop looking at it!
I noticed Gwyneth's jaw dropping gorgeous diamond ring while watching episodes of "Spain...On The Road Again." Not only is it huge (bigger isn't always better, but in this case it literally rocks!), but it's set so beautifully on a simple thin micro-pave band so the diamond takes center stage. If you're gonna roll a big rock, this is the tasteful way to do it!
I love thin, sparkling diamond wedding bands paired with an engagement ring like this one! Wear this band alone everyday for understated glamour - perfect for the office, the gym, or doing work around the house.
Let your imagination run wild in a little room of your own. This space is just screaming the words "create, create, create!" I'm dreaming of a little studio space just like this to house my fabric swatches, inspiration boards, magazines, books, jewelry that is inspiring, and fashion that translates into interiors.
I love this serene white writing desk/vantiy - the perfect space to house thank you notes, birthday cards, jewelry, and makeup.
Leopard carpet and Louis Chairs, need I say more? This space would be perfect for my mom, sister, and I to get together and work on all of our creative projects as a team (this is the muse for the studio of V +V...someday). Perfect for presenting inspiration boards to clients and holding meetings.
a fabulous desk and inspiration board from Domino
This glass and metal drafting desk from Williams Sonoma Home is perfect! Don't you just love the bamboo chair and the traditional wing back chair mixed with it to create balance??
How utterly simple, yet fashionably chic is this little nook??!! I just love the phone and rolodex that is sitting here, along with the mint julep cup that's holding pens and pencils! Add a clear lucite lamp and some artwork in a cohesive white palette and you're set! Who needs an entire room to create a space of your own?!
Love the orange, black, and turquoise going on at the Kate Spade store
This soft hue of sea foam green with black and white is so soothing and feminine, perfect for any lady with creativity on the brain
Black + White is always my go to for sleek, simple, and clean
Another great vignette from Domino...I refinished my own writing desk/work area to look like the one above and I absolutely love sitting down everyday to work on my little projects!
"Pink all by itself can be perceived as feminine, but what you pair it with makes all the difference. Think of a man in a black suit with a pink shirt and tie, or plopping a pink sofa into a listless beige room. Pink is suddenly daring and electric. The right shade of pink can energize any space." -Kelly Wearstler House Beautiful

A true Aquarius and creative spirit at heart, interior design, fashion, lifestyle, and music are my influences. My life revolves around my 2 passions: Business and Art. I'm a little preppy and a little bohemian, laced with a touch of glamour. I love a cup of French pressed coffee, art and design books, travels along the Mediterranean, bubbly champagne, fiercely creative people and those with good energy, intense conversations, daydreaming, and good old-fashioned love in every form it manifests itself. Step inside and stay awhile...
