A Milk Bath for a Mama to Be

Claw foot tub and plants in bathroom- design addict mom
As I was recently preparing for a milk bath photo shoot, I thought how wonderful it would be if I had a claw foot tub for styling. I could already envision how beautiful the pictures would be in my creative mind, but alas I don't have a claw foot tub, and set to work with my own bathroom as it is. Below is a look of the magical results...

I whipped up this simple floral crown with some blooms and greenery from my garden and I bought a bunch of sunflowers from the fresh market. I chose the black outfit because I knew it would pop against the milk. The lovely makeup is by a talented local make up artist, Elisha. Her work is amazing! The photographer who brought this vision to life and added the magic needs no introduction here-the one and only, Lea of Leahartman.

Though I didn't have the claw foot tub of my dreams for this shoot, it didn't matter because it's amazing the beauty one can create with a little imagination and creativity with what one already has. xx

Benjamin Moore Color of the Year 2018: Caliente AF-290

Good morning friends. I have been following the Doc's orders to rest and slow down and limit my screen time, thus my absence.  However, when I found out that Benjamin Moore's color of the year was such a bold choice with quite the fitting name of Caliente, I had to hop on here and blog about it! You know I am all about the bold and the beautiful and this color delivers!

When asked in an interview by Architectural Digest on how she would describe Caliente, Ellen O'Neill of the Benjamin Moore team responds, "..'OK you can’t live in a shocking color. You’ve got to live in a warm, seductive tone.' We spread them all out and we arrived at Caliente. It was very charismatic. It lured and it beckoned. It wasn’t shocking. It has an almost a brown undertone which makes it soothing. I kept thinking of red gallery walls in a stately mansion that really showcased beautiful oil paintings or ephemera. Those stately reds; intimate reds. That’s how we arrived at that specific color."

When I read of this year's color choice, I immediately thought of designer,  Miles Redd because he is known for punctuating his spaces with hints of red or boldly embracing the hue in his interior designs.  The two spaces above from his portfolio are perfect examples.

If you're timid to try this color on your walls, embracing it with accessories is another option

A red smeg, anyone?

Painting an architectural element Caliente is a great way to add a pop to a neutral space.

Get caliente with your lip color-who doesn't love a red lip, right?

So what do you think about Benjamin Moore's color of the year for 2018? While I have dosages of it as accessories in my home, I don't have it on my walls. I am an orange kind of girl but I have painted a similar hue in a past project before.
