It was a sad day indeed when we found out yesterday that the March issue of Domino Magazine will be its last. We don’t get down very often here in the Pink Palace but today we’re boo hooing over the closing of this inspiring design mag. In a NY Times interview with the editor, she explained, “We tried to create a marriage between the beautiful image magazines and the useful service magazines”. “Editorially, we did what we set out to do, and in this economy, sadly, that’s not enough.”
Sad indeed. You’ll be missed.
No one could stop talking about how cute Sasha and Malia, President Obama’s two daughters looked on Tuesday at the Inauguration…They also couldn’t stop talking about how sad it was that you couldn’t buy those jackets for your little loved ones. Well.. this morning on The Today Show they featured OUR Autumn Coat Bows paired with a satin sash so your Lilly Lover can look perfectly presidential herself!

This is the CUTEST car I have ever seen!! Bright color, wicker seats, and an optional fringe top…where do we sign? It was the ultimate Mediterranean beach buggy in the late 1950′s. These babies can get up to 59 mph and a whopping 52 MPG!! 32 Jolly cars were used as taxis on the island of Catalina off the coast of Southern California in the years 1958-1962. And if you needed more of a reason to hunt one down, Aristotle Onasis had one ( yes as in Jackie O’s husband).
KaarsKoker = Candle Sleeve (it’s Dutch). A fabulous, unique way to jazz your light fixtures, spice up your chandeliers and change the whole ambiance of a room. We LOVE these! And I know I went a little crazy with the pics but they are works of art in themselves! These things have been seen in restaurants, storefronts and even mixed in with wedding decor. Hailing from Seattle, WA and started in 2004; April Pride Allison the creator, plans to add more products to the line in the near future.
Did you know that underneath the Ferragamo flagship store in Florence there’s a Ferragamo Musuem?

Michael S. Smith was officially named for the interior redesign of the Obama’s Whitehouse in the up-coming months. He is well known among high-profile celebs and loved for his ability to warm up a room through design. Hailing from California, he’ll be using his sunny aesthetic to brighten up the Whitehouse. He’s rumored to have already started shopping and in a recent statement released that he will strive to showcase some contempory American artists per the family’s request. Maybe they’ll be needing some framed Lilly Pulitzer original prints….?
You can head to Domino to check out some of their fav Smith rooms. We love this bathroom- a man that knows how to highlight pink peonies is fine with us!
Incase you didn’t catch it- the Lilly Pulitzer/Mascot dog collars and leads were featured on the Martha Stewart Show on Monday Jan 12!! You can watch the clip here too! I think it’s right about 6:30 min into it. Martha loved our colorful canine accessories soo much she got one in each print for her two french bulldogs. Tres chic.
