Whilst living in Barcelona, I saw mini cacti being sold all over La Rambla, and I quickly developed a love for our prickly friends. They make any space feel so airy and light. There are so many types and colors to play around with, as well as some neat display options. My personal favorites are minimalist wall art pieces, terrariums that either sit on display or even hang from the ceiling, and the unique ceramic pieces that house multiple baby cacti. Much like my two head vases I filled with my own mini cacti garden just the other day!

If I’m ever lacking creativity or need a rush of artistic insight, beauty tips, a fashion update, and pretty much anything under the sun… I look to Pinterest. It’s my go-to site and houses over 5,000 ideas I’ve collected since joining. I love the fact that I can easily organize projects, have the ability to “hide” ideas and sources with those sneaky secret boards, as well as share links with friends, family, and even my clients. No matter how busy my week has been, I always fit Pinterest into my schedule. Here are some of my latest pins.
The much anticipated announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 was declared last week as Marsala. As Pantone puts it, “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”
