I love Lucy and Company

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I appreciate all of your comments and emails over the last week. We have moved Robert's father into a home and there has been much time spent with him as well as our sweet family. Time is a gift, isn't it? 


I have spent very little time in the design world this past week, but over the weekend I discovered a designer, Beth Keim {a North Carolina designer!} who has meticulous taste and a delightful blog. I have devoured her posts and thought I would share my favorite rooms by the talented gals of her design studio, Lucy and Company.  




My very favorite rooms in their portfolio are their whimsical kids room. They layer the patterns and embrace quirky alcoves and angled ceilings. All while creating spaces that aren't cutesy or childish. I can't tell if their rooms are for a 3 year old or a 15 year old, and I think that's kinda awesome.   




Who would have thought to use 2 wallpapers--both extremely graphic, side by side?! And the bubble chair is kind of fabulous. 






{although I might be able to figure out the occupant's age in the room below :)

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!

Rain, rain, go away...

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

It has been rainy and dark for too long in my mountain valley. I need some sunshine!! I was going through old photos and came across a design board that I submitted for a project earlier in the year that is full of sunshine yellow. Unfortunately, I am not going to get to implement it.

So, in case you need a little sunshine in your home, I am sharing it with all of you! A little free design! Recognize the Lauren Liess fabrics?! I am dying to use her line in a day. Someone go decorate and send me pictures!

{I fuzzied the project name--that's why it looks weird}


Getting Vampy in Rue

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Have you seen Rue Magazine May edition? This online magazine is getting better and better! One of my favorite articles featured the home of the one-of-a-kind designer, stylist, writer, public speaker and blogger Valerie Hart.

How fun is the framed collection of the Hermes bags {etsy!} hung on the upholstered green walls in her bedroom?

On her blog, Visual Vamp, Valerie gives us a behind the scenes of her bedroom design and she shares the sources for the fabrics and furniture that she used {the rugs came from Wal-Mart!! She used 2 smaller ones to create 1 large one.}. High style on a low budget--who would have thought??


When I first saw the photos, my eyes went straight to those fabulous monogram pillows. I love, love, love the font she used and the clever interpretation using the '&'. 

No symmetry on this gallery wall!! It's whimsical and eclectic and just fun.
