Lookback on 2010


I have been looking forward so much lately, I have barely taken the time to reflect on the past.  This year has been pretty incredible. Among the many happy moments shared with family and friends, I also managed to truly experience the joy of befriending a wonderful design community.  One of the highlights of 2010 was organizing the Design Blogger Meet up back in November. It was an absolute pleasure to bring this community together and to meet so many creative and inspiring people.  it really fueled and energized my love of blogging and I can hardly wait til the next one. 

Here is a look back on some of the posts that really captured your attention on Verdigris Vie this past year. From all white to colours bright, you have got some fabulous taste!

Right off the bat, in January, you fell in love with the home of Designer Ty Larkins and his French Inspired home in Baton Rouge.  It was clear he made All the Right Choices.

A little colour play got you going pre spring with this fun post Orange Crush on Blue.

You loved the Runway to Room looks I pulled together for Balenciaga's Fall RTW lineup, It was Electric

And then from all that colour, to Colour Less

The Art of the Craft gave us a little history on this Italian furniture maker.

In September we visited the South of France, and La Bastide de Marie.  This was the location that Marion Cotillard was photographed for her spread in July Vogue,

A world of white awaits you, in this beautiful and symmetric home designed by Alexa Hampton.

And lastly, the Winter Expedition that was shot by photographer  Eric Valli for Hermes a few years back is an unforgettable journey.

For all time favorites you can check the sidebar title, "You Loved These.."

Cheers to a 2011,
and all the wonderful things I hope it brings you!

    Have a dream come true for 2011.
    Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
    There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby
    Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
    And the dreams that you dare to dream
    Really do come true

    Someday I'll wish upon a star,
    And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
    Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
    Away above the chimney tops
    That's where you'll find me

    Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
    Bird fly over the rainbow, why then, oh why can't I
    If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,
    Why, oh why can't I?
