Facelift For The Whitehouse…

Posted on January 15, 2009 in More Fun by | 2 comments

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!

Hi all!

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.

Champagne For New Years Eve…Obviously

Posted on December 30, 2008 in More Fun by | 6 comments

Champagne wines earn their title through strict french regulations; the grapes must be hand picked at harvest time,  the vineyards are inspected regularly and most obvious, it must hail from the Champagne region of France. I love all champagnes but not to bore you with a never-ending list here are just a few:

5 Favs for New Years Bubbly:

1.Veuve Cliquot La Grande Dame  ($185ish)

2. Krug Grand Cuvee ($130ish)

3. Bollinger Grand Annee ($135ish) * a James Bond favorite*

4. Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label ($45ish)

5. Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage ($50ish)

**Splurge a little: They say champagne tastes best when served from a magnum sized bottle ; )

Pink & Green In Barcelona

Thought I’d post a pic of this great pink and green apartment building from the Gracia neighborhood in Barcelona. Just gorgeous! I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas with friends and family and that you were not stranded in an airport for the holidays! 


An Unexpected Tradition

Posted on December 24, 2008 in More Fun by | Comment

Barcelona, the capital of the Catalonian region of Spain, is home to some very different holiday traditions. Unexpected and quirky (something we always appreciate at LP) we stumbled across La Canco Del Tio yesterday. A log of wood decorated like a little man that children here take care of (feed and cover with blankets) leading up to Kings Day on Jan 6th. On that day they beat him with sticks and throw him into the fire, hoping that his ashes and smoke will materialize into gifts. ** That is a VERY loose interpretation of the story, my Catalan is not very good so I may have missed some things while getting the explanation… Hoping everyone is enjoying the Holiday Season thus far!!


A Colorful Casa

 Barcelona’s most famous artist/architect Gaudi, constructed this house on the Passeig de Gracia in 1906,  commissioned by a local bourgeois family, it now sits between Escada, Hermes and Cartier- not too shabby, when can I move in??

Look How Much Fun We Had!!
