everybody’s favorite everything – jade from flip flops and pearls

Happy Monday!  This week, we are kicking off “everybody’s favorite everything” with Jade from Flip Flops and Pearls Design.  Jade is a busy interior designer (with a great new job) in the Tampa Bay area as well as a wife, mom and design blogger.  I love her blog, and I am looking forward to reading along as she and her family build their dream house this year.  So let’s hear from Jade!

Jade from Flip Flops & Pearls Design (Tampa Bay, Florida)

I am so thrilled that Traci asked me to participate in her new series, “Everybody’s Favorite Everything”!  Most people, especially designers, are very particular about the things they use in their day to day life, and I am no exception.

Here’s a list of some of my favorite things…

Flower:  Hydrangea
Comfort Food:  Chocolate Chip Cookies
Lamp:  Classic Ceramic Gourd Lamp
Everyday Dishes:  I keep it simple and clean with plain white dishes
Color:  Blue (any shade)
Coffee Table Book:  Anything Design-Related
Wallcovering:  Anything textured … grasscloth, linen, love ’em all!
Coffee or Tea:  Coffee all the way!!!
Pen:  Pilot Precise V5 Black (Seriously, the ONLY pen I will use)

Artist:  Henri Matisse
Well, there it is!  A small list of a few of my favorite things!  Thanks again, Traci!


What fun choices Jade made!  I’m so with her on a number of things, especially hydrangeas and the color blue.   I cannot wait until my hydrangea bushes start blooming.  I noticed new growth on them today, so it might not be too long now.  Jade, thanks so much for participating!

    Love all of these choices! Hydrangea's are one of my favorites too. I have so many in the yard, I'd actually have to go count. It's a lot and I love them all. This series is so fun, Traci! By the way, glad the blog is finally starting to update on my blogroll :)

    You can never go wrong with hydrangeas. And I'm glad to know that I am not the only one who uses ONE type of pen! I'm a Sharpie girl.
