gold one As of September 2010, Luxe & Lucid is one year old. And what a year it’s been! To celebrate, I’m recapping some of my favorite posting moments and sending a shout-out to all those who’ve tuned in during my inaugural year online. Life in the blogoshpere has been an unexpected joy and labor of love (with equal emphasis on "labor" and "love"). Stay tuned for more interiors, more fashion and more adventures in year two. Anything could happen!Tricia xo- SEPTEMBER 28, 2009 -The Gold Standardgold standardMy first post is still one of my favorites. And my love affair with gold is still going strong.- NOVEMBER 6, 2009 -Mirror Mirror on the WallKAP_9793_c[2] It’s pretty exciting to see one of my interiors make the rounds on the internet. This photo from last year showed up on dozens of sites and seemed to incite a “mirror-on-mirror” craze. And I couldn’t get enough of the comments like those below …"That Tricia Huntley Venetian mirror over a normal mirror is my fave bathroom ever!!!"- Sarah (Matters of Style) c/o Little Green Notebook"I have had my eye on this design feature for awhile [and} looking for a place to incorporate it. I absolutely love the [first] picture."- sillybee c/o Apartment Therapy- DECEMBER 4, 2009 -L.A. = Love AffairLAMy trip to LA last November was fabulous. Inspiring and fruitful. I incorporated several of my finds into Huntley & Co. projects, including the apartment in Switzerland.- JANUARY 1, 2010 -Find Your Anthem1004_gwen_stefani_a My favorite Luxe & Lucid entry from the past year. A personal and cathartic statement delivered via a hip, irreverent post.- JANUARY 19, 2010 -Sign Languagerussian vogue dec09 The obvious fun of this post was celebrating my own zodiac sign. But I stumbled upon a lot of other interesting and unexpected tidbits while researching as well. And who knew I would be able to incorporate one of my favorite artists – Kris Kristofferson – into a blog about horoscopes? That’s the secret joy of blogging; you never know where it will take you.- MARCH 5, 2010 -A Day in the LifeIMG_1310 As many of my readers may now realize, I try to find the humor in my job and the precarious situations I so often find myself in. This was one of those days. I know we sometimes accomplish the impossible, but it’s all in a day’s work. Still, it was nice to pull the curtain back for once, so everyone else could see the reality of my glamorous (ha!) life. And comments like the one below help me smile through the madness.“Holy Crap, pardon me, but y’all are amazing. Love that your client was right there. Tricia, you have nerves of steel and fabulous style to boot”- Claire / High Gloss Blue- MAY 11, 2010 -Scents & Sensibility427px-Etruscan_perfume_vase_Louvre_Br2949 This post pulled me deeper into my romance with fragrances. Intoxicating, sensuous, glamorous. And a key player in the battlefield of love and passion for millennia. I can’t get enough.- JULY 1, 2010 -Designer DNAWho Are You_P4 I loved that fellow designers and fashionistas were able to find inspiration in my digital storyboards."Fabulous idea. I think I fit into board #2 myself. Delicious.”- Stefan / ArchitectDesign- AUGUST 26, 2010 -Heavens to Etsylaboheme bijoux Blogging about Etsy turned out to be a slightly dangerous undertaking. One, because it led to shopping. Shocker. And two, because it elicited my first negative comment from a reader [who called me a snob]. Ugh. Seriously people, I work 7 days a week and write this blog in my after hours – i.e. between 7PM and 4AM – cut me a little slack please. Whatever. I still got me some gorgeous earrings (above) and a sick vintage brooch. Snap!- SEPTEMBER 12, 2010 -25 Signs You May Be Working Too MuchT sleeping It’s good to know from suffering comes so much joy. I think everyone who read this post – including me – got a big kick out of it. Every time I look back at that painful and delirious list, I laugh. Like they say, truth is stranger than fiction.
