Our Favorites: C-Tables

In our new feature, Our Favorites, we'll be featuring
different versions at different price points of our 
absolute favorite things!

For our first portion, we've got C-Tables. We love them
not only for their adorable size and fabulous designs, but for
their versatility. Sitting on the sofa or a chair, with a computer
in your lap and maybe a drink and snack...that's a lot going on!
The C-Table is the perfect solution. These are some of our favorites!!
And if you're feeling really ambitious you can try
Ana-White's DIY C-Table. It's totally great, 
with wheels hidden underneath. And you could paint
it any color your heart desires!

Academy Awards, 2012

This is the 84th year of the Academy Awards. We look forward to this every year. 
After the Superbowl, there is not much else going on Sunday nights. 
The Cole Family loves going to the movies. When we are all together, 
there is always a night out to the movies, with popcorn for dinner! 
We always give each other a review if we are not together. 
The movies are a huge part of our family! That being said, 
take a look at our best dress for the Academy Awards, 2012!

Art For a Gallery Wall

There's nothing we love more than color! 
Although there is one thing that comes pretty close
and that's a gallery wall. 
If you're anything like us, collecting
beautiful, colorful artwork is right up your alley!
We'd love it if you went to check out our most recent 
Ideabook over at Houzz.
It's filled with great options that we would love
to include in a gallery wall.

Happy Friday!

Winter Wonderland Cottage

Look at this winter wonderland cottage. The cottage is on the property
 of Twin Farms in Vermont. We have never seen birch logs used this way, 
it is just fantastic. The bleach paneling works so very well with the white birch. 
Can you believe the curtains and the birch valance? Amazing. 
The stripe rug and toile material on the chairs and drapes, 
keep the interior feeling light and open.

Spring Showers

Ok...that neutral phase didn't last very long! I couldn't' help but sharing
some bright, fun umbrellas, perfect for the springs showers. They're all from
Old Navy and only $10! These aren't only fulfilling my need for bright colors, 
but they also have a leopard umbrella...can't wait for it to rain!

Neutral is Nice

Over 99 percent of the time, I am drawn to vibrant colors, geometric patterns and 
overall bright walls and accessories, there is a part of me that really enjoys the calm, 
serene aspect of neutral colors used in interiors and art. What are you drawn to? 
Bright Interiors or Calm Neutral Interiors?

Lovely Scarves

The loveliness of scarves is something I've 
adored for quite a long time.
Usually I wear them like this adorable lady below!
But I think I'm going to try mixing it up a bit 
like these lovely women. 
And I'll be sure to reference Melissa's How to Tie a Scarf post.

Bright colorful watercolor scarf mixed with black and white stripes?
Yes please!
And this chic scarf mixed with neutrals is perfection.
I'm lucky enough to own a few great scarves. 
My Mom gave me a navy blue and turquoise Gucci 
scarf for Christmas and I've adored wearing it 
as a belt, and like the scarves below around my neck. 
These two are wonderful! 
They are both from TopShop.
Although the one above is not sold anymore, 
the one below is fantastic!!
And it's only $44. You've got to love that!

Katie Rosenfeld Interiors

Happy Monday (and President's Day too!) We are so excited to be featuring
Katie Rosenfeld, a Boston based Interior Designer, and currently on our list of favorites. 
Her work is bright and airy with an emphasis on color. She is able to 
have fun combining colors and fabrics but her designs still have a 
sophistication that can be seen in her furniture choices. 
The use of solid colors adds to her interiors; be it on walls or accessories. 
She really seems to have fun with interior design. Her main goal is
 to help her clients find and express their own personal style. 
She studies how each client lives, the style of the house and location. 
She believes your house is a reflection of you.
