Happy Valentine's Day!

Don't you love this image of Diana Vreeland in her statement-making red room? I found this great quote from her on using the color red in her home. She said, "Red is the great clarifier - bright, cleansing, revealing. It makes all colors beautiful. I can't imagine being bored with it - it would be like becoming tired of the person you love. I wanted this apartment to be a garden - but it had to be a garden in hell." I love it! 

And if you're a magazine lover like me, check out her documentary called The Eye Has to Travel. She was a magazine editor like no other.
