If you need a good pick-me-up, pick up the new issue of InStyle


It's their annual bright-fest (aka the Color Issue), bursting with fun and easy ways to brighten your look and your home. Check out this cool, colorblock table I did!    


Color, especially where it's least expected, is the fastest way to transform a room. But even if you're not willing to paint your walls lime green, or a peachy shade of pink, you can always brighten the room by bringing those hues straight to the table. Just pick a pretty palette and go with it.       


Flowers (along with gorgeous, antique china) are my favorite way to surprise and delight guests with color! Here's a shot of the peonies, hydrangeas and anemone from the flower market in New York before I made the arrangement. (Pssssst: Look who's picking up the flowers on the shelf below!)


And here's a version of the table in studio with green glassware and handmade tapers from our friends at Creative Candles. Talk about an easy pick-me-up—their colors make me happy!


Huge thanks to Michelle Hainer, Joanna Bober, Kate Donovan and everyone over at InStyle for bringing me on for the shoot. It's an honor to be included with such tastemakers as Antony Todd and Steven Gambrel Have a bright and cheery weekend, everyone!
