Memorial Day weekend is upon us.The unofficial beginning of summer, despite when the calendar says it technically begins. Everyone is searching for the nearest body of water to cool off and enjoy a long weekend with friends and family. As much as we love to use a long weekend to get away for a bit, there’s something to be said for making your own backyard a destination in and of itself. No fighting traffic, long lines, or crowds. You could just open your back door to enjoy your own personal paradise. You used the space for entertaining guests or as a quite place to unwind at the end of a long week.

With this in mind we decided to share a few of our favorite backyard entertaining areas. They range from simple to palatial but all offer their own unique charm. Maybe we can find some inspiration to make our own outdoor entertaining areas a reality.

Spring is in the air. The days are getting longer. Temperatures are getting warmer. We are slowly forgetting about the pile of never ending snow. And last but not least, wedding season has officially begun. Whether you are a bride to be, helping a bride to be plan, or just have a mailbox full of invitations everyone has weddings on the brain in some form or fashion.

Since we like to think of us all as friends here, we want to share some priceless information with all the brides-to-be out there. Two of a Kind Rentals. Remember this name. Bookmark their website. They are here to help you. As Krista Li, the founder and CEO of Two of a Kind Rentals , says she launched the company, “as a way to provide trend-forward yet accessible event rentals to New York (and surrounding) markets.” What this means for you is Two of a Kind offers furniture and decorations from one place for great prices. They have everything from chairs to cake stands and chafing dishes. They have signs, marquee lights, and backdrops for rent or even to purchase if you would like. Their items are high quality and high fashion but for reasonable prices. They will also deliver your items and help you set up for a small fee.

In the interest of full disclosure, we might be a little biased since we teamed up with Two of a Kind to develop sturdy yet fashionable tables that don’t even need linens. We really enjoy working with this wonderful company, and we love that our work can be a part of couples’ special day.

It has been a while since we’ve posted a nice color board, and in honor of New York Fashion Week, we decided it would be an excellent idea to start highlighting some of the colors that will be hot this spring. First up on our list of favorites is this beautiful orange hue, Pantone dubbed “Celosia Orange”. Beautiful and full of potential applications!celosia-orange

Last week was a busy one for the Design world.  We’ve talked about ICFF and the amazing discoveries we made there, but at the simultaneously there was another very special design show taking place, Wanted Design –the hip younger sister of ICFF if you will.

This was only the third year for the WantedDesign fair (held at the Terminal Warehouse –or the Tunnel for any old school New Yorkers out there), yet it has quickly rose to buzzworthy status, known for discovering and featuring exciting new design talent from all over the globe.

“WantedDesign is a creative destination for the design community with innovative installations, student workshops, engaging discourse and more. Building from the success of WantedDesign’s debut in 2011, and amazing programming and attendance in 2012, the third edition will feature a strongly curated exhibition of international designers along with a rich conversation series, design workshops, a pop-up store, convivial lounges and more …WantedDesign offers participants and visitors alike with a unique and dynamic international design experience… WantedDesign is also playing a strong role, with our partners, to make NYCxDESIGN more dynamic and transform New York into a real design destination.”

Some of the highlights below.
