On the design front, packages of materials for my 2012 Junior League of Boston Show House project have been arriving at our doorstep. The Farrow & Ball paint was actually delivered last week, but a huge box from Schumacher landed a couple of days ago, and the wallpaper I mentioned here, is from Graham & Brown. I’ve been working on a write-up for the space and a hand-drawn rendering, leaving me bleary-eyed from the editing. Plaster, prepping and painting (unintended 3 P’s) start next week, so I’ll try to document the progress with photos.
In Fall 2012 fashion, one trend I’m gravitating towards is bright jacquards, but more so, the menswear inspired ones – like foulard patterns from ascots and ties. I fell in love with the J.Crew Tuxedo pant (above) which I only discovered this week.
“Are they….triplets?!,” says bus driver, Jan. Off they go, on their first day of kindergarten! This week, our girls started a new school and so did our son. It’s been busy and overwhelming! What I need? Savasana. What I’ll do? Crazy me, I want to sneak in a Saturday morning at Brimfield.
