I adore Carolyne Roehm's style. She's posts a magazine, CR Style via e-mail either monthly or quarterly, which is filled with entertaining, gardening, cooking, present-wrapping and other tips. She's also got the most beautiful collection of ribbons and wrapping papers, as well as small gifts. Her colours are stunning, and make a bold statement. I would have a hard time unwrapping something this beautiful.
Carolyne's collections, Black & White, Louis XVI, Tapestry, Luxe, Ode to Bill Blass and Bright Gifts feature gift collections, wraps & ribbons and entertaining ideas focusing on the theme of the collection.
Along the right side of this blog, you can find some of my favourite reference books, including Carolyne's four Seasons books. Each of the books highlights aspects of the season with suggestions for gardening, cooking and decorating. The books are spiral-bound and have places for you to keep your own notes. While she was writing this series of books, the house in Connecticut where she was living and using for her photography for the book, burned to the ground.
