Kate Spade Wristlet $46.80
Don't know what to buy for the graduate on your list?   I curated a few of my favorite gifts for graduation to make your shopping easier.   I love to give these Kate Spade wristlets, every girl loves them.  What to give a gift that is a little more expensive for that special graduate?  Tuck some money inside.  She will love you for it!  I have given these for birthday gifts, and have always been met with a big smile and thank you from the receipant. 

Kate Spade Keepsake Box $30
A keepsake box is a great graduation gift.  It's perfect for corraling jewelry
 or loose change on a dresser.

Kate Spade Ring Holder $29.98
Ring holders are nice for all kinds of rings.  Diamond rings, earrings, key rings.  Just toss your rings on it to remember where they are when you need them!

 Kate Spade Pencil Pouch $30
Kate Spade Pencil Pouch $30
I dont' know about you but I have always loved school supplies.  There is just something about having a cute little pencil pouch that appeals to me.  If you want to make the gift more special add some cute pencils with her name on them or a gift card to starbucks inside.

Kate Spade Business Card Holder $30
This isn't a gfit for the college graduate any longer, now days everyone has calling cards or business cards, and if they don't why not make some pretty ones to put inside to add to the gift.  She will be thrilled you were so thoughtful.  



Hopefully, I have given you some great ideas for the female graduate on your list.  If you want more ideas click here!

Windsor Smith HOMEFRONT: Design For Modern Living


"I'm like an unruly child when it comes to design.  There's always a point where I say: "What if this weren't the dining room."  ~Windsor Smith


HOMEFRONT: Design for Modern Living is Windsor Smith's new gorgeous 260-page book.  It is currently one of my favorite design books to recommend.  If you are a lover of innovative design, this is a book you will want in your library.   Her fresh vision for today's lifestyles provides unconventional wisdom for designing a home to meet the needs of the dwellers rather than simply filling a home with furniture. The book is bursting with smart ideas that anyone can employ no matter what your design style.  The book is well written and as carefully crafted as Smith's exceptionally well design projects.  She asks, "how do you want to live."  If you don't need, a living room consider making it another room you will use.  The book was intriguing to me because these are the very questions I have been asking clients and my family.  Our homes should reflect how we live and serve the purpose of supporting our lifestyles.

Introducing MDS Stripes Sportswear Collection by Mark D. Sikes



M.D.S. Stripes is a new sportswear collection designed by interior designer, Mark D. Sikes of LA.  


This collection supports the theory that a designer can cross the line quite easily when designing interiors or fashion.  
 In this case, I mean " horizontal lines" as in stripes.  Let's just say the ole "zebra can change his stripes" or in Mark's Sike's case, the young de bonair designer can."  A writer, I don't profess to be, but "good design", I know it when I see it.  This collection is good design!

One of my favorite finds at High Point this spring was Lacefield Designs new outdoor pillow collection.  I have used their line for several years and find the quality impeccable. While I love their line of indoor pillows, I am absolutely crazy about about their new outdoor collection.
