Marsala Beauty Picks

Marsala Beauty Picks!
Happy Easter to all my readers!!! I hope all of you are having an awesome weekend. It seems like ages since I posted on the blog, but this was because I had a lot of work to do on my Polyvore page. I hope you understand. So, getting back into the swing of things, I’m sharing with you some of my favourite Marsala (Pantone’s colour of the year) beauty picks. This warm rich red makes a perfect colour statement for a glamorous evening out with friends. For a touch of dazzle, opt for metallic shades of gold, silver or bronze but if you wish for a more dramatic look pair it with a strong neutral like black while brown would add even more warmth to your ensemble. Whichever takes your fancy, I hardly think you could go wrong with this colour. It’s definitely on top of my beauty wishlist!

Plus, they come in a variety of styles, patterns and colourways. So there’s something that everyone can like. Check out these ones which I found on Casasilk.

Tommy Hilfiger’s Miami Home

Located in Miami, Florida fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and his wife Dee, collaborate with British interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, to create a family home that is filled with 1960s-70s pop art and a groovy design scheme. The result is a space that is brimming with personality and one that captures the cool vibe of one of the hottest cities on the East Coast.

In the entryway, a Mark Sijan sculpture of a security guard lends a quirky feel to the space. While in the kitchen, striped flooring creates a dramatic touch with Lucite bar stools giving a floating and open feel. Wool upholstery and a brass chandelier add a glam feel.

In the dining room, red dining chairs and a chevron rug in a cream and black colourway brings a retro vibe to the space. The monochromatic scheme of the breakfast area showcases Hollywood glamour with an over scaled Elizabeth Taylor print drawing presence to the space. Lucite chairs upholstered in wool and striped flooring echo the scheme of the kitchen for a unified feel.

In the master bedroom, mirrored surfaces and a neutral colour scheme lends a serene yet luxurious feel. A four poster bed anchors the design scheme while a luscious wool throw and rug just oozes cosiness.
