In the Mood: May 2018

MAY POOL HOUSE

Isn’t Spring a beautiful season? Everything is verdant and vibrant– filled with promise and glorious beauty. Everywhere I look, I am seeing green, so naturally, it is the color that is dominating my mood this month– mixed with classic black and white for good measure, of course. I am currently in Los Angeles, installing my window design at Mecox for this year’s Legends of La Cienega, a very fun and exciting design event. Next week, each day during Legends will be packed with a flurry of activities, and I’ll need outfits for daytime as well as a change each day for the cocktail events and dinners, so my strategy is to pack a lot of black and white, along with some pretty dresses for the fabulous Southern California weather.

I am very much looking forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and experiencing the best of what the L.A. design scene has to offer. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some gorgeous images to illustrate this month’s mood featuring a palette of black, white, and green shown with the striking work of talented, rising star artist, Mckenzie Dove; along with some of my must-have picks for emulating this look in your own wardrobe.
