10 Things I Can’t Live Without: Laura of Bright, Bold, and Beautiful

Laura Trevey’s blog, Bright, Bold, and Beautiful has the ideal name. Just about everything Laura posts about whether it relates to interiors, entertaining, or art, can be described with these lovely adjectives. I love that Laura’s zest for life and positivity is reflected in her blog. She is also a very talented artist, creating beautiful watercolor paintings inspired by her love of nature and the beach.

When Paloma so graciously asked me to be a part of her fabulous series, I had a whirlwind of ideas pop into my head. All things Bright, Bold, and Beautiful, of course!

1. My painting brings me so much joy and happiness.... it is my therapy and peace. Art Studio/ Watercolor Painting

2. Family and Friends gathering together for a wonderful meal. Outdoors especially!

Beautiful Table Setting

3. Bright and Beautiful colors! This is one of my favorite photos...

4. Vacations in Boca Raton! This is the view from our condo... sigh... I will be there soon!

5. ... oh, and Nantucket too! Can you tell that I am a beach lover?

6. Sunshine and Smiles

8. Inspirational Interiors... I love using Mirrors!

9. Anything Nautical... Are you getting the picture? Someday I will live by the water...


10. Finally, I love attending really fun weddings!!

Like you I love the coastal areas, best wishes on your upcoming time there in Boca - and thanks for reminding me I need to wear more color!

Oh, wonderful! I love the variety here, the mirrors, the nautical style (which can be so hard to pull off, these are just chic and gorgeous!). Laura is such a talented artist, too! Great choice, Paloma! XO1
