Happy Friday, friends!
It has been a busy couple weeks! Last weekend my husband and I went to the Frieze Art Fair here in NYC. It’s pretty upscale, and the people watching was amazing. Just imagine a fancy tent filled with rich art patrons, lots of arty people, and gallery owners and art from around the world. It was a very good time!
We also went to the Metropolitan Art Museum, not once, but twice last weekend. If you are visiting NYC this summer, make sure to check out the China exhibit (so good!), then stop by the roof for drinks and great views of the city.
I also attended a Sherwin Williams/HGTV event. They’re releasing a new line of paint that’s available exclusively at Lowe’s. The color palettes are amazing, and I got to view three beautiful rooms designed around the colors. The host of the event was interior designer/HGTV host, Jillian Harris (former Bachelorette), who was super sweet. I took home some paint samples, and I can’t wait to show them to you … I just need to decide what to paint first!
Anyway, on to my favorite links from the week!
