Design Crush: Kathryn Ireland

Picture 21

Last week I was lucky enough to get the chance to meet Kathryn Ireland (no, not KATHY Ireland, much to the hubby’s dismay).  She came to Boston for a lecture and book signing for her new book Creating A Home and her PR people so kindly sent me the book to review and asked me to come! She was delightfully funny and charming (side note: for Xmas all I want is a British accent) and her book and new line of fabrics are too! The book focuses on her renovation of a magical Ojai, CA home she purchased (and recently sold to none other than the insanely lucky Reese Witherspoon!) It’s such a happy home with tons of bright colors, natural historic elements, entertaining space and lots of outdoor living as well (which I simply cannot get enough of). Can’t you picture sunset cocktails with tons of friends here?

I am LOVING the bright, bold colors and prints of her new line of fabrics!

And speaking of Reese Witherspoon- not only does she get this house (for her WEEKENDS) and Jake Gyllenhaal, but she looked seriously fierce in these great outfits in this month’s InStyle. I love every single outfit- completely flawless in that “cool but not too trendy” way.   The best thing about this spread though is that they used off the rack clothes on her- shoes from Aldo and dresses that we all can get! Those are some smart people over there at In Style who keep their finger on the pulse of the public! As for Reese, if I didn’t love her, I’d hate her….
