Garden Stools: Inside + Out!

One of my favorite furniture pieces to use is a ceramic garden stool. They are so versatile - one works beautifully as a chic side table, a pair of coffee tables, bedside table, extra seating or just as an accent piece, and they are so easy to move around when needed. What's even better is that they are perfect for indoor and out!

I love how garden stools can work in everything from modern to eclectic to sophisticated interiors! 
Do you have a favorite spot for a garden stool?

Bloemenmarkt - Amsterdam's Flower Market

After a recent visit to beautiful Amsterdam, I was especially charmed with the flower market which lines a canal in the city's center. Established in 1862, the market has long been a source of floral inspiration! Fresh flowers in an interior are certainly a luxury but one that can go a long way. Following a few interiors which floral arrangements make a big statement! 
This shop was my favorite my far - Klaas Timmer - I loved their rich fall colors and sophisticated arrangements! 

Bouquet by Klaas Timmer - adore the plum colored leaves they used! 

A beach house dining room by Chris Barrett, featured in House Beautiful 2009. The trio of oversized glass jugs filled with flowers and branches give the room so much color and life!

A dramatic and traditional dining room in Atlanta pops with bright green florals! Interior design by Barbara Westbrook and Kim Winkler.

A dining room by Carrier & Co. The large arrangement of branches bring the outside in!

I loved the bright pink peonies framed against the blue chest and the photograph of flowers! Interior by Moises Esquenazi via House Beautiful

Enamored with the floral photograph above, I found this stunning Vintage Rose print by Susan Hornbeak-Ortiz. Archival ink on paper, 1/125, available through the artist at S.H.O by Shine. If you can't always have fresh flowers - this is a beautiful alternative!

Oh . . . Fall (Sigh)!

 I have always adored the fall - I love the leaves turning color in New York, the smell of fireplaces, the pumpkins, the chilly weather! But this year after almost a year spent in the continual August which is Singapore's climate, I am especially smitten!  It does not hurt that I am living in a charming French town and down the street from the stunning chateau of Fontainebleau. The gardens were begun in 1528 for Francois I, added to in 1661, and finally the Jardin Anglais was added in 1811-1812. I run here most mornings and its so beautiful I had to share a few of my quick snapshots with you. I hope you enjoy! 

Jusqu'à demain! Au Revoir!
