Last Minute Christmas Decor

I mentioned how bow crazy I was the other day...well my kitchen needed a little more Christmas cheer so I tied some ribbon around my hurricanes and it did the trick!

I layered red and white striped ribbon over green burlap ribbon and tied it into a big bow.  It really brought a lot of color in the room and only took a minute.
Hope you are having a festive week!  I am in a sugar cookie comma...I will post some pictures of my sugar cookie decorating later this week!

Nobu Malibu - New Oceanfront Location

We went to the Nobu in Malibu over the weekend and the new location is breathtaking.  The waves are literally crashing beneath you.  Living in LA, you would think that we have our fair share of beachfront restaurants but that is actually not the case.  There are only a few quality restaurants with a great ocean view and I am so excited that Nobu has just been added to the list!

 Lychee Martini

Tacos might sound like an odd choice at a Sushi restaurant but they are delicious! 

The modern architecture looks beautiful over the water and I love the Restoration Hardware sofas and lounge chairs.

Their famous yellowtail sashimi with jalapenos.

 We were lucky enough to sit outside with the fireplace roaring, twinkle lights in the tree and the moon reflecting on the water...heaven!  I will have to is a far drive and super expensive but well worth it for a special ocassion.  I can't wait to go back in the summer and watch the sunset(and next time I will Uber out there so that I can indulge in a few more martinis)!

The Christmas Bow

I have always been obsessed with ribbon and I love a good bow!  This year I have been going bow crazy around the home and hanging Christmas bows everywhere.  Here are a few pictures.

Last year I couldn't get into the Christmas spirit right away, if you remember ftom this post here...but this year I am having fun decorating and have already gone through a carton of eggnog while putting up the tree:) 
How is your house looking?
P.S.  The eggnog was coconut milk eggnog and I highly recommend....just as good...well almost!

Design Crush - Vigneau & Associates

I am loving this shingled home that was featured in New England home with the Interior Design by Nance Vigneau.
Vigneau & Associates is a full-service interior design firm in Rowayton, Connecticut.  Take a look at this beautiful home and see if you fall in love with it as much as I did! 
This is my favorite room.  I love the tan and white pallet with leopard and plaid!

Love the wire detail on the shelves.

What a perfect bathroom vignette.

Central Park Home by Michael Smith for Sale

Remember this home from the March 2011 Architectural Digest?  This home designed by Michael Smith can now be yours for $50,000,000.  This spectacular condo is one of only12 residences atop the Ritz Carlton Hotel.  You can find the listing here.

Michael Smith has decorated 6 homes for this couple in the past 17 years!  They spend their time between their homes in Los Angeles, Malibu, London, New York, and Majorca.  I guess they are looking to down size and putting their Manhattan apartment up for sale.

I can't get over all the art and antiques in this home.  It makes me want to see their combined collection in all 6 houses!  Can you imagine?

To die for views of the city skyline and central park.

A Library inspired by Coco Chanel's famous Paris apartment is fitted with 18th century Chinese lacquer panels.

Every inch is filled with art and fabulous furniture.

Love this masculine office.

Here are some pictures from the Architectural Digest magazine....

Go to the Architectural Digest article here to see more details regarding the interior design by Michael Smith.  It is worth a quick look to see all the details that went into decorating this home.

Travel Tuesday - Fearrington Inn

The Fearrington House Inn is a 5 star Bed and Breakfast in North Carolina.  It is also a Relais & Chateaux property that includes an award winning restaurant and a beautiful spa.

This image of the barn is what really caught my eye.  I think a chic barn wedding at Fearrington Inn would be so fabulous.
