gold one

  

   

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!

The Gold Standard

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

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

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."

– sillybee c/o Apartment Therapy

L.A. = Love Affair

LA

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

several of my finds into Huntley & Co. projects, including the apartment in Switzerland.

Find Your Anthem

My favorite Luxe & Lucid entry from the past year. 

A personal and cathartic statement delivered via a hip, irreverent post.

Sign Language

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.

A Day in the Life

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”

– Claire / High Gloss Blue

Scents & Sensibility

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.

Designer DNA

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.”

Heavens to Etsy

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.

Whatever.  I still got me some gorgeous earrings (above) and a sick vintage broochSnap!

  1. Thanks for all the well wishes! I should have started a blog years ago … under the right circumstances, it’s a great ego booster ;) I’ll try to indulge all your style and humorous cravings in year two. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of material.
