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? Their current exhibition is dedicated entirely to color called..”Creativity in Color” said to celebrate his footwear as “works of art that speak through their colors and mark their true identity…” Hmmm.. speaking through color..we know some people that do that too ; )

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.

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!
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!!
