A Little Bit More Blue...

A Bit Of Blue struck a chord with many of you...Click here to view that post if you missed it.

 We have received several emails with inquiries about the fabrics we posted and our design services.

 Pantone may have declared pink the color of the year in 2011 and tangerine for 2012...but blue still reins...

We've gathered more blue inspiration...and as we've done so, we've come to the conclusion that

"a bit of blue" is the very best...

Vintage Bar Carts...

We absolutely love carts...

I think our fascination with vintage bar carts used in home decor began with Betty Lou Phillips...

We have all of her books, and she obviously has a fascination with carts...

Here we go again...We did a wonderful covered porch this summer and used a cart in a really fun way, ... just recently a powder room....but no pictures.  We promise to get better at recording our work.  

This is a fabulous piece in  our inventory now...it's in our space at Le Jardin in the Heights.  We have a couple of carts at Fabulous Finds too...We'll share pics of those tomorrow...We're going to be revealing some exciting changes for us at Fabulous Finds...
