Orange. Algue. Strawberries.

Thursday, June 04, 2009
Here are a few things I found in the blogosphere this week that I found to be particularly interesting:
Dreamy blue-green Hamptons bedroom: Benjamin Moore's 'Spring Mint' + white trim
Orange is making a comeback. How retro. I have to admit, I cringed a little when I noticed Fred Meyer's recent use of orange on their newly remodeled Hawthorne store; I cringed because orange is a color I still believe to be so 1970's . . . until I saw it paired with these colors on sfgirlbybay's Summer Lovin' post. Brilliant.

Cup and Table
is loving her algue--check out her post "i love my algue." Of course, I'd prefer some sort of air plant that grows in a similar shape for my walls, an ascetically pleasing vertical garden instead of the plastic version. Having said that, I have to admit, plastic or no, that I love the look and appreciate the design.

Speaking of design, Design Crush did a post today on the strawberry-basil mojito. I'm a long-time mojito fan, and it's strawberry season, so this is looking pretty darn good to me right about now, especially with all the hot weather we've been having! Check out the recipe and maybe I'll see you at the local liquor store tomorrow afternoon for supplies? Better yet--maybe I'll see you out on Sauvie Island at Kruger's this weekend in their strawberry patches. By the way, don't forget about Kruger's annual Berry Jam Father's Day weekend--should be loads of fun.
