As of September 2010, Luxe & Lucid is one-year-old. And what a year it’s been!
To celebrate, I’m recapping some of my favorite posting moments and sending a shout-out to
all those who’ve tuned in during my inaugural year online. Life in the blogoshpere has been an
unexpected joy and labor of love (with equal emphasis on "labor" and "love"). Stay tuned for
more interiors, more fashion and more adventures in year two. Anything could happen!

My first post is still one of my favorites. And my love affair with gold is still going strong.

It’s pretty exciting to see one of my interiors make the rounds on the internet. This photo from
last year showed up on dozens of sites and seemed to incite a “mirror-on-mirror” craze.
And I couldn’t get enough of the comments like those below …
"That Tricia Huntley Venetian mirror over a normal mirror is my fave bathroom ever!!!"
– Sarah (Matters of Style) c/o Little Green Notebook
"I have had my eye on this design feature for awhile [and} looking for a place to incorporate it. I absolutely love the [first] picture."

My trip to LA last November was fabulous. Inspiring and fruitful. I incorporated

My favorite Luxe & Lucid entry from the past year.
A personal and cathartic statement delivered via a hip, irreverent post.

The obvious fun of this post was celebrating my own zodiac sign. But I stumbled upon a
lot of other interesting and unexpected tidbits while researching as well. And who knew I
would be able to incorporate one of my favorite artists – Kris Kristofferson – into a blog about
horoscopes? That’s the secret joy of blogging; you never know where it will take you.

As many of my readers may now realize, I try to find the humor in my job and the precarious situations I
so often find myself in. This was one of those days. I know we sometimes accomplish the impossible,
but it’s all in a day’s work. Still, it was nice to pull the curtain back for once, so everyone else could see the
reality of my glamorous (ha!) life. And comments like the one below help me smile through the madness.
“Holy Crap, pardon me, but y’all are amazing. Love that your client was right there.
Tricia, you have nerves of steel and fabulous style to boot”

This post pulled me deeper into my romance with fragrances. Intoxicating, sensuous, glamorous.
And a key player in the battlefield of love and passion for millennia. I can’t get enough.

I loved that fellow designers and fashionistas were able to find inspiration in my digital storyboards.
"Fabulous idea. I think I fit into board #2 myself. Delicious.”

Blogging about Etsy turned out to be a slightly dangerous undertaking. One, because
it led to shopping. Shocker. And two, because it elicited my first negative comment from
a reader [who called me a snob]. Ugh. Seriously people, I work 7 days a week and write
this blog in my after hours – i.e. between 7PM and 4AM – cut me a little slack please.

It’s good to know from suffering comes so much joy. I think everyone who read this
post – including me – got a big kick out of it. Every time I look back at that painful and
delirious list, I laugh. Like they say, truth is stranger than fiction. Yes, this is my life.
A big thank you to all my readers and subscribers. I love your feedback, so keep it coming. And a
shout-out to my international fans. Your attention to my fledgling blog is really exciting. Here’s a list of some
of the countries who’ve checked in with Luxe & Lucid from around the globe this year. Love, love, love it!
