This is a re-wind post from a couple of years ago. Still the same premise. We are very lucky to live in this country and be free. We can thank our founding fathers for designing and drafting our Declaration and the men and women in the military whom give there all to insure we are safe. God Bless America.  The blogs are fun and I hope you have a wonderful July Fourth,2014.


Come on, can you believe we are now into the second half of 2012? This is incredible to me. I think each year seems to fly by faster. This is a special holiday for a number of reasons. Mostly, I like this day because it is a patriotic reminder of our individual free will and freedom. No place on earth offers this to all men and women. United States of America.


Last year HuesandCues had fun with our July 4th post. We did a two part series. One on home interiors and another on food in red, white and blue. Check them out!

Take Two: Fourth of July, Part I

Take Two:Fourth of July,Part II

I am loving some of these images and ideas for a festive day with plenty of friends and family.



Lucky for us the beach is always a first option and the most relaxing and fun way to spend a the day in Southern California. The people watching is amazing!!!


Happy Independence Day 2012!!!

The Maldives, I think this is exactly what I need while we rethink the H&C’s approach. So busy this year. I miss you but it is a formidable undertaking keeping the blog on a roll and it is time to rethink our “mission”. Be back soon all revived and renewed. Have a wonderful weekend.

This is still one of my favorite experiences and a fun post,too. Hard to believe it was two years ago. Easter is a special time of year and I love it. We still have Peeps parties. It’s part of Spring.


Let’s Go:New York Easter Parade

I love over the top, intricate tile or stone for small powder rooms and baths. The use of highly dramatic color and shine adds breadth and depth to even the smallest of spaces. I am currently in the throes of redoing a powder room and though the size is small the room is tall. Ten feet. What’s so great is the opportunity for spectacular lighting along with specially appointed tiles or a incredible slab. I think there are great ideas in these images I have collected on my Pinterest board, and though I probably won’t be using a gorgeous slab on the walls for this project, I do love the idea. There are so many custom appointments for the perfectly chic bath, it is hard to narrow down the choices. I think that’s all part of the fun in the design. Don’t you?
