Not Just Breakfast at Tiffany's

Lately I’ve been over the moon for what many call the color “Tiffany blue.” I can’t say they’re really off base as there seems to be no other color quite like it. Plus, there's a definition on Wikipedia, which we all know is totally and completely accurate. And couple it with orange, yellow, white and brown…swoon!

Incorporating these colors into my quite-traditional home has proven to be challenging, but I’ve taken the advice of those with killer taste and if I adore something, throw it up there and see how it works with everything. And so I have, adding items like these:

Kitchen towels from Crate and Barrel:

Vases from Anthropologie:

And on the side, I picked up these little numbers today…I couldn’t resist (note mine is Tiffany Blue vs. green, but I couldn't find the image). Plus, they’re handmade in Ecaudor from the acai seed by a darling couple that is working to pay for their children’s education. At nine bucks each out of my pocket (which still feels like a splurge these days), I couldn’t pass them up. Won’t they be fabu on my island getaway next week?!

So it’s not just about breakfast at Tiffany’s anymore, or begging for the latest piece I desire there, but more so about embracing any item that sports their signature color. I just know Audrey would’ve done the same, right?!
