Happy Trails!

Friday, July 01, 2011

I spotted this man while driving down the highway outside my little town.  I was so intrigued that I had
 to do a u-turn to get a second look! Balanced on each side of the front wheel were 2 coolers and
backpacks were secured on each side of his back wheel. This was obviously no short trip.

Where did he begin his journey? How long had he been traveling? Where was he headed?
 What kind of flags was he flying??

 I would have loved to have been able to meet up with this happy guy and questioned him about
 his adventures--I can only imagine the great stories he could sharel!     

Wherever your journeys take you this holiday weekend, enjoy them to the fullest!!

The Hazardous Bathroom

Thursday, June 30, 2011

This is what renovators Carrie and Chris' bathroom looked like when they
 purchased their New England circa 1886 home on Hazard Street.

It wasn't exactly the bathroom of their dreams so Chris got busy on ripping everything out.
They didn't increase the footprint of this room--it looks tiny, right???

 Well brace yourself because you are not going to believe how much punch can come
 out of such a tiny space:

How beautiful is this powder room???!!!!

gorgeous lighting, crown molding, bianco carrara marble, schumacher wallpaper, glossy beadboard...
every single detail is perfect

It's a Southern thang

Are you able to pick out the common thread in the following photos?

Figure it out????

Monograms, of course!!
But, not just any random monograms, thank you very much, noooo..
All of these gorgeous rooms showcase monogram linens done by the same company, Leontine Linens

Influenced by her southern upbringing and a belief in the importance of heritage, Jane Scott Hodges
founded her company in 1996 after scouring the market for custom fine linens on which to place her new
monogram while preparing for her wedding. Frustrated by not coming up with any, she discovered a need
for these in the marketplace.  

With her husband as partner, they decided to meet with their clients in their own homes to get a sense
 of who they were and their lifestyle. Based on this information, they could advise accordingly.
Talk about wonderful customer service!  
 Then, they would return home to her bedroom/office to create a one-of-a-kind design. 

As their business grew, they were able to acquire 25 skilled artisans to tailor make each item.
The company gained a huge following among celebrities, socialites and the editorial industry.   

Not long after hiring 6 sales consultants, she opened a flagship store in New Orleans in 2005,
a showroom in Atlanta and launched a website.

At the heart of Leontines philosophy is the artful approach to how one lives. Every product is meant to be
used and enjoyed on a daily basis and not simply put in a drawer to be saved for special occasions.
It is this philosophy that has propelled Leontine to become a sought-after brand.

The client meets with their sales consultant and can choose from an extensive collection of styles or they have
the option to tweak the design to her liking. Basically, there are no limits on what they can produce. As
 with any custom item, their products are a bit of an investment, but these are handmade and basically 
couture for your bed.     

It's hard to believe that nearly all of their products are washer- and dryer-safe! You really can use them, live
with them and enjoy them!

Keep an eye out as your flipping through your design magazines and I bet you will be surprised to see
how many times you'll spot a Leontine product. They are wildly popular!
Check out their website to see all that they offer.
