Ashley Woodson Bailey

Are you familiar with the artist Ashley Woodson Bailey?  She is a self-taught photographer whose work captivates me.  I am absolutely obsessed with her Dark Collection, created to capture the transition of a blossom to dying stem. 



Dutch Love

Each of these photographs is so heartbreakingly beautiful and moody.  I need Abundance in my life. Yes, it has transcended from want to a definite need.  Her work is so powerful, that it makes me equally breathless and tearful.
I could gladly build an entire room around an Ashley Woodson Bailey piece.  Couldn't you?

Chairish-Inspired Living Room Design

Hello!  Do you know Chairish?  I certainly hope so because, if not, you are missing out!  Chairish has fast become one of my favorite go-to sites for amazing vintage furniture and home décor.  Not only are all the items curated by those with impeccable taste, but the pricing is great too!  I was thrilled when I was contacted by Chairish and asked to design a colorful room using one of their accent chairs as the starting point. 

I had quite a few amazing pieces to choose from, including

Mod Yellow Tufted Chair

Pink Zebra Louis Chair
Red Arne Jacobsen Style Chair

In the end, I selected a pair of green high back tufted chairs by Broyhill as inspiration.  As soon as I saw them, I knew immediately where I wanted to take the room.

Green High Back Broyhill Chairs

Chairish asked that I design a space that incorporates color.  Um, hello!?!  They were certainly speaking my language.  I love the apple green of these chairs and immediately envisioned them partnered with a favorite colorful floral Hot House Flowers by Celerie Kemble for F. Schumacher.

Next, I simply used the colors from the Hot House fabric to layer in additional color and pattern.  How do you like the end result? 


Thank you again for inviting me to design a room.  What are your favorite pieces at Chairish?

Monday Pretties

Good Morning.  Mondays suck.  So why not do a little daydreaming? 

Monday Pretties


Tory burch boots

Tory burch purse

Studded bracelet

Hermès bangle bracelet

Tiffany & Co. cat eye glasses

The center of it all is the iconic Cecil Beaton photograph of Charles James gowns, taken in 1948.  Then my besties Tiffany and Tory joined the party.  Followed, of course, by Hermes and Cartier.  What girl wouldn't love one of each?  Did I  mention I have a birthday coming up?  ...if only.  *sigh*

Back to my regularly scheduled Monday.  Make it a great day!
