crazy for CORAL!

I spend a large portion of my day glued to my computer and sourcing for clients on-line.  I couldn’t get over all the super cute coral colored rugs, lighting and case goods that I kept coming across this week!  I am loving all these pinky, orange, juicy shades right now…..these warm colors evoke tropical drinks, toasty toes in sand, aqua oceans, the smell of coconut, Palm Springs, St. Tropez, yacht parties and big, striped beach umbrellas…..


So why am I sitting here sipping hot tea, bundled in numerous layers and with cozy slippers on?

Oh, yeah, I’m in San Francisco.
