Dior Fall 2010

We were taking a little peek back at last year fall collections and the Dior Fall 2010 collection by John Galliano caught our eye again in a big way! We love the clear inspiration he drew from flora and their dazzling colors and intricacies...

We guessed at which flowers specifically inspired these selected looks, take a look at the rest of the collection here and pick out your favs!

Seeing Red

Well...burgundy really, it's all over the place!! On the runways and in the top picks for fall fashion, this color is going to be hot this coming season.  We put together a little inspiration board to inspire both your fashion choices and decor choices for home and your holiday parties...

The dresses are from Neiman Marcus Women's Top Ten Picks and The Examiner showcased a great collection of products in this hue. If you don't feel like going all out with your apparel, just paint your nails or pick up some of that deeply fabulous jewelry by Dior!

To translate into décor pillows are always a fun option, we love that Marimekko Kumina throw pillow (the one in front) with pops of blue and pink!  You have some fun floral options as well, burgundy amaranths are pictures but you can use whatever you like.  Berries are a fun alternative option to flowers and are quite appropriate for fall and the holiday season ahead! And if you're planning any fall get-togethers try using napki…

Missoni For Target

We here at EPI are all jazzed about the Missoni for Target line that's debuting this September 13! Check out some of our favorites from housewares...

Mark your calendars because we know that with such fabulous products, they won't be on the shelves for long.  I've got my eye on those killer black and white print towels and shower curtain myself, and I'm not afraid to fight you for them :)  See you at Target on "d" day!

Think Pink!

Nothing adds a little pizzazz like a pink sequined linen! You can't go wrong when you start out with such a beautiful foundation for a table setting.  We found those lovely flower graphic plates and used our own purple glass chargers that match the dessert plates.  For name tags we took a que from the plates and re-created a similar graphic.
Picking up on the sparkle of the sequined linen, we grabbed some of our metallic silver containers for centerpieces.  Continuing with the shine, we found fabulous jeweled candles, mirrored candle sticks, silver napkin ring, silver mercury glass votives and used our fabulous mirrored side table!  With all that sparkle make sure that you let the light in!  Natural light is always preferable, so set up outside or open up those windows!
The pink didn't stop with the linen either: we used different types of flowers in varying shades of pink for our centerpieces, pink glasses, pink cupcakes and a delicious pink cocktail garnished with a fresh rasp…

Turn Gardening On Its Head

Discovered in a place very near and dear to the heart, New Zealand designer Patrick Morris designed and created these incredible upside down planters. Perfectly charming, minimal and refreshing all in one little unoccupied space! We need these now!

By turning houseplants upside down, Morris has created a container that saves water and doesn't take up valuable floor space — an important factor in small space living.
