I can't think of a better way to spend the holiday weekend than watching some tennis and sipping on a Southern twist to one of my favorite cocktails. Hope yours is fabulous!

SAIL TO SABLE


Who doesn't love a little matchy-matchy coordination now and again? Well, you can do just that with new lifestyle brand Sail to Sable. The preppy collection of tunics, pillows, and linens come in coordinating fabrics and patterns. I'm eyeing the solid navy and pink — a chic combo perfect for mixing and matching.

ART SHOW: GRAY MALIN


I don't know anyone that doesn't love a good aerial photograph and Gray Malin's À la plage, À la Piscine series fits the bill perfectly. Visions of colorful umbrellas and crashing waves will have me dreaming of summer well into fall. :)

ONE KINGS LANE PREVIEW


Well the countdown is on and with the sale fast approaching, I wanted to give everyone a little sneak preview of what's in store. As I mentioned yesterday, I shopped for the sale in Florida, so my items have a heavy Palm Beach vibe — think vintage barware, chic elephants, and faux bamboo galore. 

Also, each of the bloggers is sharing a short list of their favorite things on One Kings Lane's Live.Love.Home. I do hope you'll join me tonight at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET to kick off the sale!

KELLY'S WORLD...SNAPSHOTS FROM VEGAS MARKET


As I mentioned Monday, I spent a few days at Market in Las Vegas with Traditional Home magazine and some of my favorite bloggers, listening to some great panels and seeing the newest offerings at my favorite showrooms. I wanted to share a few snapshots of a few of my favorite finds:

The nailhead trim and leather combo on this chair proves that sometimes a simple look is the chicest.  |  These black and white nesting tables were one of my favorite pieces of the week. It's not hard to see why! The malachite tray in the corner looks amazing against the striped design.  |  It's hard to tell the scale in this photo, but this coral is not only massive, but it's indoor/outdoor.  |  Love the colors and design of this pillow...it's also extra soft :)  |  Black and white again — I love a good stacked box set and this one's a classic.  |  Shiny, mod brass safari animals...always a favorite!
