Wrapped it up

Tuesday, July 17, 2012



After weeks in the all-star tournament, our boys lost the championship by 1 run in the 7th inning last night. 



. it just slipped through our fingers last night. They represented Jackson County beautifully. They played great and we are so proud of them. 


Got a little chaos happening right now and this song keeps playing in my head


Not sure how consistent I will be this week.

 In case you should ever doubt it--I appreciate each of you that takes the time to stop by my little piece of the internet each day. I really do.

John Jacob

Monday, July 16, 2012

no, not Jingleheimer Schmidt. This one is way cooler, trust me.

John Jacob is an aussie interior designer whose designs are packed full of precision, repetition, rhythm and order. Every spot is utilized and every square inch is considered.

This particular house {which happens to be my favorite in his portfolio}, is the home of Peter Herrmann, CEO of Hertex Fabrics. Almost all of the illustrative pieces of art were done by Herrmann's wife. 

There are layers of details including precise lighting, mirrors and mirror images.





John has described himself as being 'negative-space phobic'. I describe JJ as being real easy on the eyes.

Edie's digs

Friday, July 13, 2012

Well, the super fab Edie has gone and done it again. Remember how fantastic the bedroom is that she decorated for her girls last year?? Well, now she's added one more super beautiful room to her gorgeous home. This time, the master, which by the way she claims is still a work in progress. 

I love that wall color {graphite: ben. moore}, don't you?? It just adds the perfect backdrop to bounce the glimmer of the mirrored glass edged tufted headboard and crystal chandelier. With the richness of the walls, I love all of the white and the punch of terra-cotta accents.

And take a look at the special spot where she gets to write her love letters. 

Oh, I can only imagine the drama in this bed!! I mean, you have the twins Chiang Mai Dragon 1 & 2, layered behind Ms. long, skinny striped monogram and you just know that Miss yellow flower has to work hard to keep the peace. I mean they are all just too pretty! It's like putting several NY housewives in the same room--they just can't not outdo each other!
