Designer Highlight: Meg Braff

There are many designers that I follow and adore... 
however, I am going to go out-on-a-limb and say that Meg Braff has become one of my favorite designers.  
I'm continually impressed with her style and la, la, love that she includes so many colors and textures. 
I'm also impressed with how her designs can be fresh and unique 
while remaining classy and timeless.  
Once again, Coastal Living, has revealed some more of her fabulous work, 
but this time, these lovely photos happen to be of her very own West Palm Beach condo. 

Hey Meg! Next time I'm in Florida, how would you like to get lunch? 
I'd love to come see this fantastic condo for myself!

I am such a fan of warm orange mixed with cool blue. It is a beautiful combo and this room looks 
amazing paired with bold white. The wallpaper Meg Braff used is so fun and unique.

This dinning room is classy & simple, yet bold & vibrant.
Love how it is anchored with white, splashed with bright, happy colors, and evened with the green plant.

I don't know if I would have ever had guts to create a bright aqua bedroom, 
but I certainly I'm impressed with this fun room.

The unique coffee table and shell-inspired ceiling fixture makes this room so whimsical. 
The bold aqua furniture paired with the green pillows is genius, and Oh! hello lovely yellow. 

Although I'm not one for a pink attack, I love how the Asian-inspired wallpaper 
and a geometric print on throw pillows keeps this bedroom classy and mature. 
I just can't get enough of Meg Braff's designs. Can't wait to covet more of her work.

Karyn Millet Photography

Right now, I'm inspired by the photography of artist, Karyn Millet.

I've enjoyed her photography throughout different magazines, 
but these photos are pure amazing.  Oh, how I wish I could enjoy one of Karyn's  
inspiring photos in my home. Just lovely.


The Daily Dish

Here is a nice fuzzy iphone photo of my morning with the ladies from 
The Daily Dish and Good Things Utah. 

I've been a bit preoccupied this week...
 I was invited to go on The Daily Dish, which is a local lifestyle morning show.  
I've never been on TV and I was over-the-top NERVOUS.  Funny thing was, 
I was scheduled to go on toward the end of the show, but the person that was
 scheduled to be in the first segment didn't make it there in time, so I had to rush on! 
They didn't even know she wasn't there until they went to commercial and then they realized she wasn't there... so they rushed my table on the set 
and before I know it I hear: "5,4,3,2,1!" 
I was so frazzled and hadn't quite finished setting up, and had No clue where to stand. Ha! What an experience. At the beginning, my voice was all shaky but after a minute 
I think I was able to pull-it-together a bit. Wow! What an experience. 
I was asked to do a segment on Sprucing up you kitchen for Spring...
{More on that later}
I'm glad I did it and ended up having a lot of fun with the gals on the show. 
 I'm so glad I didn't give-in to my fears, and not do it, even though I desperately wanted to. :)  Now, I know more of what to expect when I go back. Yes, I did say that I'd do it again... YIKES! :{/:}

Dear Daily Dish, Thanks for having my on! 
Ladies, You're Fabulous!

Kobo Candles: A "New Obsession" for Rachel Bilson

Kobo Candles have been highlighted many times in many different magazines and on many different web sites.  All I can say is I'm a HUGE fan of Kobo Soy Candles.  In fact, that is the reason I added them to Modern Palm... I fell in with the book and the cover.  The packaging is unique and beautiful, you don't even need gift wrapping, and the scents are memorable, unique, and fresh.  "Woooow!" Is usually the word that sneaks out after someone smells a Kobo Candle for the first time. 

Rachel Bilson added the Kobo Candle to her "New Obsession" list in her column in Instyle.

Kobo Candles are created using environmentally friendly materials and are made of domestically grown sustainable soybeans.  The scents are achieved by using the finest boutique fragrance houses in the US.

 Don't forget that the Kobo Candles from Modern Palm 
were included on Martha Stewart's Christmas Gift Guide!
Pretty cool stuff...


Inspiration in Stripes

I've been looking at different wallpaper ideas for my entry and hallway... 
I've wanted to paint stripes in this location for about a year, however, I've become nervous that it's over-done, so I thought I'd put wallpaper there instead.  
Then, I saw this photo with the wide black & white horizontal stripes in the 
latest Country Living and fell in love all over again.  
Over-done or not, it is still wonderful and I still heart stripes in a big way! 
In addition to the stripes and chandelier, I'm loving the photo gallery on 
both sides of the wall and love how the stripes highlight the ceiling
