Again, Rooms & Gardens Santa Barbara (along with Martha’s Vineyard and a cloisonne factory in China) provides inspiration as well as a sure eye; showcasing edited choices in furniture, fabric, art and accessories.

Wintry spring color

As spring color invades my world here in Santa Barbara, one last look at Martha’s Vineyard.

A monochromatic palette has a beauty all its own.

I believe the eye hungers for and seeks color – even in the midst of monochrome.
