Luxe Holiday: Friendmas: Black, White & Malachite!

Last night we celebrated our annual "Friendmas" dinner and gift exchange.  Somehow, without discussing it prior, we always manage to have very cohesive gifts! I suppose that is why we are friends!
Thanks to Christin, the theme of the night's tablescape was black and white cabana stripes, malachite with touches of gold:
Festive, no?!
And the gifts that followed did not disappoint! With lots of black and white stripes, malachite, monograms and gold, the gifts matched the theme of the night perfectly!
A fabulous (Ikea!) striped throw, cabana striped cosmetic bag and brushes, malachite soap, and monogrammed goodies from Gigi New York and Jordann Jewelry! We love Friendmas!!

Luxe Fashion & Decor: Emerald Envy

We're loving this year's pantone color of the year choice (we always have radiant orchids in our homes!) But I am not ready just yet to move beyond last year's winner.  I'm not sure if it's because of the holidays, the persisting malachite trend, or just simply a new color that I've grown to love, but I cannot get enough of beautiful emerald tones lately! So much so, I'm considering bringing it in through some accent pieces in my new living room!

Luxe Decor: Breakfast Nook Tables

During our recent kitchen renovation, we decided to add a banquette in our breakfast nook area.  The space is pretty large, and the built-in bench now provides much more seating than just a simple table and four chairs!
But speaking of tables, I've been on the hunt for the perfect table.  And I just haven't decided on the exact direction I want to go!
I've hung the coral chandelier I had in my previous dining space, and will add bamboo matchstick shades on the windows.  I'm thinking a classic black and white cabana stripe fabric for the cushions and pillows, and a pair of ghost chairs for when we need the extra seating.
But back to the tables! I'm on the hunt, and while I'm keeping an eye out for a great vintage find, there are some reproductions that I'm contemplating too...
Do I go for a simple, modern chrome look?

Or glammy with this gilt option?

Or a classic tulip table?

What's your vote for?? Let me know!!
And some fab LUXE PICKS if only budget was no issue!

Luxe Lifestyle: Favorite New Purchase: Deco Earrings

This weeks fave new purchase are these fab sapphire blue deco inspired earrings, I impulsively bought at The Eye Of The Needle in Palm Beach this weekend.  They'll be great for the holiday season but they will easily continue to carry me though the rest of the year...for day or night!

Luxe Lifestyle: Friday Vignettes: Another Kitchen Sneak Peek

We're really starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel...in the kitchen anyways.  We finally received our appliances last week, it's been glorious to finally cook again after almost a month of takeout and microwaved meals!  We're still missing some hardware, but all in all our kitchen is fully functional.  And I'm absolutely loving the uppers I added with the glass fronts and the X detail.  A full post on all the before and after shots coming soon!
