Five multimillion dollar luxury real estate listings in New England

Can a party dress inspire a room or party table decor? Let's see!

Do you have a party dress in your closet that you just love the colors, the accents, the way it makes you feel?  Have you ever considered using the dress as inspiration for your decor or party table theme?  I have gone into my client's closets on numerous occasions and asked them to do just that!  I ask them to pull out clothing they love, ask them what they like about it, then sometimes we go from there!

Using Cobalt Blue For Decorating & Fashion

Growing up in an old 1680's - 1760's farmhouse in Massachusetts, I had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy many simple pleasures. Let's remember there was no internet, no cell phones, and playing outside for hours was not only normal but expected.  One of those childhood simple pleasures was exploring and digging in some of the old family dumping grounds that were hidden all over the property and uncovering many wonderful items.  Some of my favorite finds were cobalt blue bottles that I would then take home, wash, and display on my bedroom windowsill  (yes even as a little girl, decorating with accessories was very important to me :-) ).  I thought I would share a few photos of how cobalt blue can be used in decorating and fashion.
