|olsenboye scarves at jcpenney|
Popped over to the Manhattan JCPenney to see what all this Joe Fresh hubbub was about. In a nutshell, it is righteous. Fantastic colors and patterns. It was kinda delicious. On the way out I swept through the accessories department to look at scarves and saw some great color/pattern combos from Olsenboye.
They're a lovely flutterweight, the patterns borrow from a few cultures and in warm and cool/brights they are pretty damn fetching. Hello Spring!

For that reason, this will be a multi-part post. I have some thoughts on this movie and it's portrayal of the modern Black experience which feel too big for a set design post. Plus, there are all these homes to cover.
So first, Mya's house:

This is a brief one (and mildly NSFW), but I just love it. New York stories are one of my favorite film genres. Maybe that isn't a bona fide genre, but a good New York City film is a very special something. Those are movies that allow you to feel the city, to believe you're really there. On my short list: Desperately Seeking Susan, Girlfight and Beat Street. To name a few.
And then there's Carlito's Way...

How they tempt me. Somehow, West Elm just keeps bringing the interesting and cozy homewares, season after season. It's no secret that their Moroccan and Indian offerings are my favorites. But I also find their Modern, Greek, Japanese, etc. compelling. Their latest goods zing with color, pattern and shape. How not to be impressed?

For the umpteenth time I was considering this delightful room that has been floating around Pinterest for months. How beautifully the colors blend with the patterns and textures. Yellows, reds and pinks grounded by whites and tans. Wools, silks, canvas and crackled ceramics. Paisleys, swirls, dots, geometric florals and African mixes against stripes. Wouldn't it be nice to see the entire room?
And then it hit me. We already have.

|istanbul runner: my hallway can't wait|
I finally did it! Ordered something from Zara Home. The Istanbul runner has been on my mind for quite some months and it's finally gonna be mine. My jubilation over the availability of Zara Home goods is too much to chronicle - and I do mean chronicle - in this post. After failing to set foot in either of Paris' two Zara Home stores during my solo vacation back in 2007, I have been eating my heart out browsing their website over and over again!
But no more. At last, a little Zara for me.
