Traditional Home Magazine, Color and Rebecca Ray Designs

Posted on March 24, 2014 by Rebecca | 1 comment

Traditional Home Magazine and Rebecca Ray Designs have a lot in common in April's issue of the magazine!!  On page 34 of The Color issue, the editors of this venerable arbitrator of timeless home design feature pops of Rebecca Ray color with the Maryann Duffel in yellow, the Camryn Bag in navy and two of our brightest colored moc-croc Bit Cuffs, orange and cobalt.  We are so delighted to be included in the pages of Traditional Home; it is a lovely benchmark moment for us. 

 

Certainly, our faithful followers know that color plays a tremendous role in everything that we do here at Rebecca Ray Designs.  I've certainly never been one to shy away from color, which breathes life, depth and excitement into everything we create.  Our signature Maryann Tote in Orange is known as one of our most popular pieces. We continue to push the unusual and vibrant color barriers of fashion every day.  In fact, years ago, I singlehandedly got myself placed on my painter's watch list (and this isn't a positive!) by requesting that we paint the living room in the most delicious shade of dark navy blue with bright white trim and blue and white Delft tiles around the fireplace. It was much like the rooms featured on page 70 -71 in April's Traditional Home issue! In our last home, our dining room wall paper had tasteful sprays of marvelous florals underpinned with robin's egg blue in a very federal pattern. The family room had a Revolutionary War mustard, taken from historical Mount Vernon style colors. At the new farm, Hemlock Lane of Valley High, I've saturated the old, original kitchen cabinetry with a deep blue. I find that these colors provide the perfect backdrop for my collections while giving great dimension and warmth to our rooms.

Northern Michigan Travelogue

Posted on August 13, 2013 by Rebecca | 0 comments

Just a few weeks ago, Derek, Lizzie and I took a family road trip to Northern Michigan to visit Derek's parents. Derek grew up in this absolutely beautiful portion of our country, and I always tease him that certainly everyday he lived there must have felt like a vacation! Since his family still resides in Boyne, we spent the week scouting around in Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Sturgeon Bay. Here are a few of my favorites sites and activities from the trip!

While we were in Harbor Springs, I had the opportunity to visit one of our favorite Rebecca Ray retailers Joie de Vie where Valerie has done the most magnificent job displaying our products. Her store is absolutely gorgeous; as you can see below, it's a visual treat!

 

During the evening one night, we went to Elk Rapids Polish Festival for not only the draft horse pull competition but for the Kielbasa, Sauerkraut and noodles - does it get any better than that? Here is the winning team!

Also, I was able to visit Rebecca Ray traveling retailer, Bead by Bead at the Traverse City Horse Show, where Ann has a beautiful set up and display of Rebecca Ray.

Another day was spent at the Petoskey Antiques show - foraging for great finds. It is always fun to be at a antiques show in a different region, as you tend to see different things. I loved this vintage stone stool and had never seen anything like it! As for these antique fishing creel bags, the natural bag farthest to the right reminded me of The Camryn bag! You can see where I get my inspiration from!

And, as usual, we did all of our regular vacation things like Tom's Mom's cookies, Guerney Store sandwiches, farmer's markets and beach time.  It was a great break and fun family time.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Until next adventure, Best!!
