Rando Design Inspiration Friday

Hooray the weekend is (nearly) here! This has been a really great week so lets end it with a bang, yes? FYI, I had the most amazing gelato (for the US) last night at Eli Zabar's. You should go try it over the weekend. Or now.

From Southern Accents which has apparently folded (tear), I couldn't take my eyes off this gallery wall on a curved wall UNTIL I saw that mini chaise. In love.

This bathroom seems so soft and smooth with marble and stones even thought the tiles look rough and blocky. By Philip Sides.

Ever since the House Beautiful issue a few days ago, I've been thinking about what "my color" is. I love pink but oddly enough I don't have much pink in my own apartment. I have blue and yellow. I'm very complicated. Thinking I might try out La Dolce Vita's test HERE. Room by Kim Zimmerman.

My bedroom is painted blue and has green and wood accents . This bedroom from Martha Stewart looks just as lovely as mine. HA.

I've always loved Barry Dixon. This is a gorgeous room from a house in the Caribbean. Can anyone guess what my favorite element in the room is?

In a few hours I'm off to the train to go home for the weekend. My father is alllll alone this weekend and last time he was left alone he did some overly ambitious yard work, cut his hand and DROVE himself to the ER. That's not happening again. Hopefully there will be minimal yard work and maximum tennis and sailing. Have a great weekend--what are your plans??!!
