Picking Rapberries

The color raspberry is a nice, bright, clean color that seems to haunt me these days. This color is so naturally eye catching, possibly because of how vivid and intense it is, and I seem to see it everywhere.

This kitchen is so unique in design and its use of color. I love the pop of raspberry in the rug and cabinetry. Paired with the wood tones and the clean white countertop, the raspberry is definitely the star of the show! I feel as if a ballerina is going to twirl through the walkway while the chef is preparing a five course meal!

I must say these might be the best highchairs I have come across! Not only is the color great, but look at the functions and the design. I am in love with this AGS Design HiLo Chair thanks to All Modern Baby. I must say, all the moms out there really need to check this chair out. It also comes in five other fabulous colors. Che meraviglia!

I found this photograph of the Raspberry Study of Empress Maria Alexandrovna (Russia) and thought it was just gorgeous! From the detail in the ceiling and moldings, to the most perfect use of raspberry, I could definitely see staying here!!! Empress Ashleigh, I believe it has a nice ring to it!

A three legged stool! The designer of this stool, David Restorick, actually found a stool that was old and broken and made these replicas in Cast resin!

The neutral color palette of this exterior space allows for the dining chairs in raspberry toile to come to life! Nothing says English country side like toile, stone work, and antiques!

Isn’t this skirt just the cutest thing ever! I found the most darling website: Teacups and Mudpies . WARNING: Moms, do not go to this website with the intent to just 'browse'…you will buy! There are items for boys and girls, but the Tutus and Pettiskirts are just wonderful.

I do believe I need a pair! These amethyst chandelier earrings worn by Christina Applegate, go from a deep amethyst to a lovely raspberry in different lights. Yes, of all the jewelry I have seen on celebrities this year, these may take the cake, or at least a large slice of it!

I found this chair on one of my favorite site: Etsy. Spruce Home took this vintage high back chair, painted in a bright white and reupholstered in a raspberry fabric. Nice choice I must say, and the pillow is a wonderful compliment!

Ahhhh, reminds me of a nice relaxing hot day, enjoying the slow life with a drink in hand. Hopefully that is what I will do on our little weekend get-a-way this Saturday!!! Yeah, much needed!

My next cocktail (taken from Absolute’s website):

Absolut Raspberry Ambitious
4 parts ABSOLUT Raspberri
2 parts Cranberry Juice
1 part Lime Juice
Fill a highball glass to the rim with ice cubes. Pour all the ingredients over the ice. Garnish with raspberries and a lime wedge. YUMMMMMMM!
