St. Patricks Day is coming up and the Savannah Girl in me is coming out! I’m Green With Envy over these inspiring goodies for the home. Enjoy!!

Tommy Mitchell

“Do you see what I see?” “Uh-huh.” Silence. “That’s insane.” My mother and I stumbled upon the incredibly talented Tommy Mitchell and his showroom at the Atlanta Market in January. The first piece that caught my eye was a table with gold leaf butterflies under an acrylic box.  It was perfect. I had to go…

The Real Deal

Would you do anything crazy that required you to FACE your FEARS and get out of your comfort zone? What if your friend asked you to do it? What if your friend had cancer? In 5 short weeks, I will be doing just that. I will be participating in Dancing With the Spartanburg Stars on March 27th…

Updating the Outdated Round 2

Well, it’s time for an another round of “Updating the Outdated.” My husband and I graciously accepted any furniture hand-me-downs from our parents and grandparents when we first got married.

selenite powers

I first fell in love with SELENITE when I had the opportunity to tour SCAD’s president, Paula Wallace’s incredible home when she graciously opened it up for a tour. I came home and immediately ordered a box of it, not knowing what to do with it. Now, that it is everywhere, I am learning more…

Kantha Beauties

My new Design Obsession is the colorful design of the Kantha Blanket. These beauties are created by stitching together and reusing vintage cotton saris from Bengal, India. They are gorgeous folded at the end of a bed or thrown across a sofa for an added “boho” feel with perfect shots of color. Definitely a conversation…

marble avenues

I fell in love with marbleized papers when I had the opportunity to study in Italy one semester. I bought sheets of Florentine paper with the plan of using them to mat some beautiful watercolor bird prints. That never happened. I guess when I returned to college life, a more “social schedule” prevailed. In searching…
