barcelona wine bar

Barcelona store front
I'd been hearing a lot of hype about Barcelona Wine Bar on 14th St., NW. Comments like "it's the new place to be seen on 14th St."  It felt like a "night club" (?!).  Of course I was dying of curiosity because you know I like all things tapas + new + cool.

Halloween-2006-me-n-bobby1
I love Halloween!  This was one of my favorites from back in the day.  This picture is so old I had to scan it.  My husband was Don King and I was a devil.  Imagine that.  I hope you have a day of fun costumes and lots of candy!

Kale salad
I know the kale salad trend is waning but for me, it's just beginning.  A couple years ago, my husband tried to make kale chips and they were gross.  It was a fluke because kale is delicious!  We've been adding it to our daily veggie mix and it's a nice change from arugula.  Bon appétit.

riveting rooms

Dramatic fireplace

I can't believe it's the last week of October and Halloween is upon us.  In honor of the spooktacular holiday, this week's riveting room is dramatic.  Isn't that mirror striking?

helloooo friday!

Logan circle fall
I'm so glad it's Friday.  Even though I work on the weekends, I'm always happy when they arrive.  I hope to see a few friends, try a new restaurant (anyone tried Thally yet?  Or Barcelona?  Both are my list) and enjoy the brisk weather.  Have a good one!

let’s imagine

Paris-entry
Champ de Mars, Invalides

4 bedrooms | 3 baths

list price |$10,333,425

This time last year, I was preparing for my first trip to Paris.  Today, I'm feeling nostalgic for the gorgeous scenery and homes.  Let's imagine we're buying this lovely 4 bedroom, 3 bath condo on the Left Bank. It has a lovely view of the Siene, updated kitchen and baths plus a room for the staff and a cellar.  It's only $10,000,000, right?

Domino magazine cover
I'm late on this announcement but my copy just arrived and I'm excited!  I love this magazine. When it folded in 2009, I was sad and hoarded all my issues.  I still have them stacked in a pile in my living room and I consult them regularly. When I repainted my condo, the first place I went was a Domino issue to check out favorite interior designer paint colors.  

One new aspect to the latest version of Domino is their website.  It has content but more importantly, it has shopping!  Which I think is genius. How often do you see something in a magazine and want to buy it asap? I'm looking forward to lounging on the couch and reading it this evening. Go buy one so it doesn't fold again!

vegas


Bobby-vegas

Vegas was an experience..and not the kind you usually have in Vegas.  Yes, there was gambling, drinking and dancing but there was also a once in a lifetime experience for my mr.

riveting rooms

Turquoise head board bedroom
Do you ever start the week exhausted?  Instead of feeling refreshed, you feel like hibernating in bed (especially one like the photo above?? I love it!) for the day? That's how I feel today.  Last weeks Vegas trip was fun but tiring.  I still have jet lag and I got back on Thursday!  I've also been busy, busy, busy since we returned. Which is never a bad thing but uf.

Charles marville
Before the government shut down, I toured the Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris exhibit at the National Gallery of Art.  I was curious to see Paris from Marville's point of view in 1862.  When the museums re-open, make sure to check it out.  It runs till January 5th and it's fascinating.
