Curator Picks - 6/7

It has been a strange week here in New York, it doesn't feel like June weather, but I'm not really sure what June should feel like anymore. Summer usually has such a definitive line, but these past few years there has been a sort of ambivalence in June and it's not until July and August that we truly feel like summer is here. As I write this, there is the most amazing rainbow arching over the East River. It is the second one we've seen this week. It is so bright that I think it will leave a burning trail in the sky when it fades away. (Wait, does that make it a double rainbow all the way???)


Interior Design:


I love this new series called Copy Cat Design over at Little Green Notebook where Jenny and her assistant Colleen take apart a famous room (today she does Kate and Andy Spade's widely published living room) and tell you how to get the look of the room using what's on sale today. I'm totally taking the tip of using colorful satin pillows on the couch to give it an extra pop and sheen.

I know I've written about Herriott Grace here before but I'm especially excited because Nikole has made a film about her father and you can watch the trailer on her blog today. The full film will be released on June 14th.


Fashion/style:

Get a sneak peek of the upcoming book from Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere. So excited for this one!! From teaching you how to properly wear lipstick to layering jewelry, Emily seems to know a little bit about everything.

Mrs Lilien hosted an Ultimate Dinner Party extravaganza with Town & Country. Check out the photographs of the glamorous crowd in attendance here.

Two giveaways on Design Mom today. The first is for a $150 gift certificate to Pinhole Press, I used them to make beautiful calendars for my family last Christmas. The second is for another $150 gift certificate to spend at Olive Juice Kids, the adorable kids clothing site.

Food:

Digging these apple cheddar biscuits from Annie's Eats. I love Annie's idea about eating them with a slice of apple on top. Biscuits (or I'd say scones) are a great project to do with a child as they can have fun cutting out the shapes in the dough.
