I came across Extasia's collection of intaglio jewelry at an adorable jewelry boutique in Cape May, NJ called Victorious. I love the opaque, candy-colored German pressed glass that is used to update these Victorian designs. The colors truly pop, especially the acid green and the periwinkle, and some like the orange are approaching neon territory! So fun!

I'm enamored with this chic and cheerful breakfast nook and kitchen that was featured in the July issue of Southern Living magazine. Using a sofa in place of a more expected banquette is such a genius idea , and it looks great with the mod Saarinen table. I'll definitely be saving these images for my inspiration folder, for that day when I have a kitchen large enough to accommodate a dining area.

I love coral and turquoise, especially with a bit of lucite worked in!
