the jet set – plush palate

“i have three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.”

hey there!

over the years, my love affair with interior decor has come to rival my love of fashion. lately i am most thrilled to find the latest issue of elle decor in my mailbox and spend too many hours immersed in the sea of interior decor blogs.

somewhere along the way, i discovered the chic blog, plush palate, and before you knew it i was a superfan! the author and incredibly talented interior extraordinaire, crystal, treats her readers with the most fantastical images, style secrets and too-good-to-be-true giveaways.  it is brimming with so much inspiration i have to resist the urge to repaint my walls or purchase a fabulous chandelier.  a true gem, plush palate is one of my daily faves.

so imagine my delight when miss crystal happily agreed to participate in this week’s “jet set” guest blogger series!  and of course, like her blog, her dream getaway is nothing short of spectacular.



the passenger: 
crystal from plush palate
the getaway: 
seychelles islands, the perfect place to escape for a piece of paradise here on earth.

the carry on: 
the berkeley bag from aspinal of london in cream – a classic, light colored bag is a summer must.

summer staple: 
i live in sundresses in the warmer months. not only do they keep you cool in the heat, they’re cute with flip flops and chic with heels.

beauty bliss: 
i’m a huge proponent of everyday sunscreen (be it summer or winter!) and won’t leave the house without it.

color code: 
colors that look good with a tan! white, turquoise, coral, yellow…

page turner: 
committed by elizabeth gilbert. relationships are a beautiful, intense, complicated thing and i can’t wait to hear what the eat, pray, love author has to say on the subject.

shaken or stirred: 
a bellini is the perfect summer treat. delicious peach juice and dry sparkling wine. prosecco works the best!

the soundtrack: 
i currently can’t get enough of sweet disposition by the temper trap. a moment, a love, a dream…

    My husband and I just finished Committed as we read Eat, Pray, Love together the first time! What a wonderful book full of interesting info about marriage, traditions, and life. We cant wait to see the movie with Julia Roberts of Eat, Pray, Love. But books are always best to read! 🙂

  4. I’m with you on living in sundresses in warmer weather. I like the one you picked, but the link is broken- any chance you remember the name or make of it?
