It goes without saying that with teenage boys in the house, we’re a family of “gamers” – and not just the electronic kind! Winter weekends mean evenings by the fire playing board games (you name it, we play it!) and one of our favorites is Which Came First? So in honor of this game and the winter weekends ahead, we’ve come up with a new series… Which came first?
Porcelain Fruit Bowl
Louis Vuitton - Spring 2012
The Hubbard Collection
or the plates?
Lulu DK Petals
or the toy?
Do you want to play along with us? If so, please email us at info@DianeJamesHome.com your “Which Came First?” duos and we’ll include them (with credits, of course!) in future posts.

We all know Pantone‘s color of the year (#18-2120 – Honeysuckle, just in case you haven’t heard!) is in fashion this spring, but we’re still waiting for warmer breezes to melt this chilly part of the Northeast… and since Mother Nature won’t be wearing her pale pink blossoms any time soon, we’d happily settle for these pretties!
Fancy Nancy Clutch
Gusto Pink Heel
Needless to say, we’re perfectly prepped when it comes to pink petals!

is anything from the new fine jewelry collection, L’Ame du Voyage (“the soul of the trip”), designed by Lorenz Baumer for Louis Vuitton. Each piece is a beautifully intricate work of art inspired by Baumer’s travels throughout Europe and the Middle East. While the theme of the collection is circles (described by the designer as a symbol of perfection), we loved the gemstones carved in the Louis Vuitton monogram floral shapes (a cut invented by Baumer himself) and the ribbons of diamonds that flow gracefully from the neck when worn. Each set in the collection includes a one-of-kind necklace with a price tag of up to $2.5 million. We couldn’t agree more with Baumer that “when a woman gets jewelry and glows, then you’re a great jeweler.” Who wouldn’t want to glow with one of these gorgeous designs?
For more information and a glimpse into the making of Baumer’s jewelry, pick up your French dictionary and watch this video:
