I don't know about you, but over the weekend I got slammed with May Issues of some of my favorite magazines like ELLE Decor, VOGUE, Traditional Home and a special Collector's Edition of Florida Design. Since I was working on a project down in South Miami, I wasn't able to dig into them yet, but from what I saw when I skimmed through is this:

ELLE Decors Trend Alert for Turquoise
(this years trend color of the year)

Turq still featured in ads

Turquoise Trend in Florida Design from New York's
 William Diamond & Anthony Baratta

Celerie Kemble

Although ELLE Decor is still featuring Turquoise as a "Trend Alert" color, they also showed IKAT, which was also displayed in the home feature of Ellen Pompeo's Hollywood Home...

Florida Design featured several Florida spaces combining fresh orchids, coral motifs, and shell accessories


Traditional Home called out in their Market Place section to watch for a new color trending: PURPLE (you can also see it featured in advertising). They featured not only paint samples, but some gorgeous accessories too...

Speaking of accessories... VOGUE featured Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover and a gorgeous spread of her... along with two product endorsements by her, one of which is her fragrance, along with the upcoming SATC2 movie...

VOGUE May issue

Not turquoise, purple or fuschia, but still gorgeous!

Another trends & issue was featured in Glamours "Do's & Don'ts" for the current trend of florals... be sure not to become on DON'T when wearing...

GLAMOUR May issue

Speaking of 'issues'.... Have any of you using Blogger or Picnik been having 'issues' with the page or site locking up or shutting down? or is it just time to 'update' this computer???


  1. WOw, saw the got issues-and thought oh yes i do...

    but oh yeah i have those (new) issues too, so many ideas I can not keep up. But that blue color is in now maybe because of summer but it is everywhere...
