Ralph Lauren Home Inspiration

This past Saturday, after going out for a few cocktails with my husband we came home. He put on an episode the Wire (me: zero interest) so naturally, I was all too happy to pull out a new glossy.

I’ve subscribed to Architectural Digest for years. Frankly, I feel Town and Country presents that certain lifestyle far better, but I enjoy skimming the pages of AD for inspirational things. I realized I typically use the magazine to inspire a once-in-a-blue-moon painting session and I tear out Ralph Lauren Home ads. That’s it.

It has been a while since I found a brand that so closely represents my vision of relaxed, classic perfection in design. What can I say? I’m a fan of classic preppy American style with a dash of English Prep School. And yes, I dream about the NE seashore all the time. The colors of the skies when they mix with the grey waters when a storm is rolling in – that is my perfect.

Anywho. I stumble across an ad for Ralph Lauren Home which catches my eye, as usual, and decide I should capture some of these pictures on Pinterest instead of ripping them out and hoping I reference them when I start designing a house. And then, I note they are on Pinterest and reference it in their ad.

Ever the marketer, I’m excited about this. While I doubt anyone over at Ralph Lauren Home will ever read this post (unless they’re executing social listening and engagement at top-notch level…and care about an occasional writer), I want to thank them for integrating their masterful brand marketing with the digital channels that inspire new consumers with semi-disposable incomes that are planning their first home design.

Cheers to you, Ralph Lauren Home team, for doing what is right in the world of digital marketing. I hope to buy a few cans of Viceroy Blue for my first reading/library room or, realistically, bathroom. Because after all, who has a reading/library room in their first homes.

Travel Wishes (on Sale)

Kate Spade sale with lots of travel goodies ends tonight! Just a few days after I learn that I’ll be traveling to Mexico City in the next couple months. Coincidence? I think not. If only the Playing Hooky bag was available…

The cross-body bag feels right for museums. This necklace may be coming home with me, too. And the casual skinny wallet that’s perfect for tossing in a bigger day bag with my camera, sliding into the cross-body with my museum guides and little memories (napkins, matchbooks, tickets, etc.) or carrying by itself for an evening out!

Excited to start planning my visit to the beautiful country of Mexico in the next few weeks!
