Cozy Bath

Carolina Herrera Jr. wanted to create a dressing room she could hang out in. The petite floral fabric on the walls, pink striped lounge chair and layered cow hide rug on carpet create a cozy atmosphere for wardrobe and tub. An inviting way to start or end the day.

Fall Flora

Pheasant feathers look great with brown transferware dinner plates on a mostly white background.

This is and easy and pretty arrangement of Nandina, we have a ton in our yard. If you aren't careful it will take over, but it does have pretty folliage and berries this time of year. I never thought of bringing it indoors.

Love this natural table with driftwood and crab apples. I wonder who makes those blue plates? My china is a similar cobolt blue from Mottaheda, Blue Lace.

Election Day

Serena and Lily are having a election day sale on their red and blue Nate collection. They have beautiful baby and children's room linens and have been growing their business. It has been fun to see all their new creations. What talented gals.

Slow Blogging

It has been a slow few weeks on my design blog. We moved back into our house and I've been trying to get unpacked and settled.

Here are a few snapshots of our new house. I love our dark wood floors, a 50% mix of antique walnut and ebony and our fresh walls in linen white. We used more color in the bedrooms and study.

As for decorating I started with the basics, fresh paint, drapery and accent pillows, a new dining room table and lighting. Over time we will add the finishing touches, a few more pieces of furniture that I don't want to rush into, plenty of art and some accessories.
**Updated to add that this curtain fabric is one of Windsor Smith's designs that my friend Lisa found for us.**
