Alice Temperley S/S and A/W 2012

I just love all the beautiful details on Alice Temperley's designs- as seen here from her 2012 collections. Her lavish use of rich embellishments and boldly embroidered textiles makes me swoon.......sigh.

Period Homes

Stumbled onto this delightful magazine that features beautifully restored antique homes throughout the UK. I'm always struck by the incredible age of some of these dwellings.Here in the US, people are often intrigued when we share that our home was built in 1750.In Europe, that's not so special-some places in this periodical date back to the 14th century.Images from Period Living.

Artist Marian Dioguardi

Wow.Oh so in love with the supersaturated colors in Marian Dioguardi's paintings. A resident south Bostonian, she paints relatively mundane objects and scenery but imbues an intensely vivid sense of color. A woman after my own heart.See more here.First seen on this lovely pinboard.
