Things We Love: Combining Brass and Marble

Brass and marble kitchen of Nate Berkus

Chocolate and peanut butter. Blue and white. Brass and marble. Some couples are just so good together that we can’t imagine them without each other.

We always wonder about that magic moment when two things were first combined and, from then on out, were always better together.

We will probably never know when brass and marble were first combined, but what we do know is that, now that we’ve seen them together, we are totally smitten!

You know that white marble is one of our forever favorites, especially for kitchen counters.

We love how it wears and changes over time, how it becomes something a little bit different as the years go by.The same is true with brass really, in that it starts out shiny and metallic and dulls and ages with time, its beautiful luster becoming a lovely patina.

Maybe that’s why these two staples go together so well.

Like the best couples always do, they change as they age but still complement one another so beautifully.

What Mimosa Lane is saying about Slightly South of Simple:

slightly south of simple

“Kristy explores family bonds  and how they can be put to the test as a a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart surfaces. This is Kristy’s third book and I am just so amazed at her imagination that conjures up such beautiful stories and heart-felt stories.  I can envision this one becoming a movie and having maybe Julia Roberts play the mom?” Albertina, Mimosa Lane







A Touch of Pink

There’s nothing sweeter than a pop of pink… And we’re so lucky to have one of our sweetest blog friends, Albertina from Mimosa Lane, here today to share with us her favorite pretty pinks for every room. Albertina’s blog is as amazing and lovely as she is, and, besides, what’s better than starting every day with a little mimosa? Not much that we can think of! We still, years later, can’t get over the insane transformation that Albertina created in a closet she redid from top to bottom when we participated in The One Room Challenge together. And that, friends, is just the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy her pretty pinks and then go visit her at her online home. Thanks for sharing with us today, Albertina! It’s always, always a pleasure!

I’m so excited to be here over at Design Chic, one of my favorite blogs, to be sharing with you some pink inspiration for your home. Beth and Kristy are such a fabulous design duo.  Their blog is always filled with wonderful design inspiration and sources and I love that we have done The One Room Challenge together.  I’m really honored to be on their blog today. So let me tell you about these pretty pink beauties I rounded up for you today-
With the elephant print you get a lot of statement in just one piece. It is large (22″x24″), has a great price and I think would look amazing in a playroom or girl’s room.  The flutes with the pink stem are beautiful and are just $72 for 6. The flamingo napkin rings are exactly what would make your table setting memorable for your guests.  I love this acapulco-esque bar chair….how fun! The peony faux flower arrangement is sensational, and that pink table lamp is so cute.  I have been dying over this pink acrylic console table for a while now and think it would modernize any space.  The small chest of drawers is so feminine and just plain pretty.  And this wire chair has so much character.
I think adding pink to a home softens the space and makes it inviting.  I hope you are adding some pink to your homes.
Beth and Kristy, thank you for having me!!  I’m so excited to be here.
