Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


I know the posts have been sporadic since I returned from Paris, I have been getting settled into my new routine which takes a little more time than I am used to. Thanks for sticking with me while I figure everything out. 

I was pulling together a pin board this weekend (an actual board, not a virtual one) and I found a picture from a restaurant that Dorothy Draper & Co. designed. Dorothy was born in 1889 and, when you see her rooms, quite a revolutionary in her day. I love this quote by her "Never look back, except for an occasional glance, look ahead and plan for the future. Success is not built on past laurels, but rather on a continuous activity. Keep busy searching out new ideas and, experimentally, keep ahead of the times, or at least up with them." 

My favorite rooms are the ones that incorporate red and green balanced with black and white. You would think that red and green together would come off as holiday but with the right touch, they come off as sophisticated and modern.
