Digging This: David Jimenez’s Palm Springs Style

 These projects by interior designer David Jimenez may have been published in 2009, but their punchy flair and midcentury classicism keep me coming back for more! Pass the lemonade!

Weeeee! The new “Aqua Glam” photo series by Gray Malin that comes out today! I feel like I’m always searching for images of dashing dames in H2O! I even based a room makeover (that I’ll share with you soon!) on a large scale photo with a similar vibes. These beauties are definitely going on my wish list!


Titilating Titles: The Seven Year Itch

These come from the Titan of Titles; Saul Bass.  Cards flap, pop and flash across the screen in a color palate of tan, red, orange, yellow, pink, black and white. Prettier than a Mondrian painting!

The fanciful hand-lettering is by Harold Adler. You can watch the full title sequence here. Such good visual inspiration for home decor…

Lady Cocktail: Bombshell Bellini


Fresh like the first days of summer, this simple recipe is a real crowd pleaser! A ripe peach and lime juice puree puts this cocktail a big step above a Kern’s nectar and champers. (No offense Kerns! If I was 8 and it was only you and tiny cans of unsweetened grapefruit juice in grandma’s fridge, I’d pick you.)

2 Ripe Peaches

1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice

4 oz. Simple Syrup (or equal parts sugar and water. Or, you can use honey simple syrup, as described here!)


Mint Sprigs

Remove skin and pit from peaches. Combine peaches, simple syrup and lime juice in a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. Add 1-1 1/2 oz peach puree to chilled champagne glass and top with cold champagne. Serve with a mint sprig. Makes 6-8 drinks. 6-8. Cin Cin!
