Southern Living.

Hi Paige here!  So if you follow our blog you know we are working on the 2012 Southern Living Idea House which will open to the public for tours in June and will appear in the August issue.  As a southern farm girl it is an honor for us to work on a home for Southern Living.  We have had requests to see our inspiration for this 1830’s farmhouse renovation/addition.  Here are a few inspiration photos we pulled for the home.  Everyone needs a little inspiration when beginning a project… right?  Check ours out…. we all found these images from different places…. enyoy!

Then in other Southern Living news…. my friend (and a Tracery client) Stephanie Nichols is featured in the March Issue of Southern Living.  Stephanie is an amazing clothing designer.  Stephanie and I hit it off instantly… maybe because we are both south Alabama farm girls, maybe because we both love design and all things beautiful, or maybe because we both love a happy hour mani/pedi (this is our favorite get together).    She has the shop www.shopwithdejavu.com and the clothing line Judith March.  She is all around an amazing designer and mom.   Check out her blog here.  Check out her designs here… you won’t regret it.  Stephanie recently designed a custom dress for me… I LOVE it!  (I actually wore it to the idea house meeting at Southern Living that Doug and I went to 2 weeks ago).  So pick up a copy of Southern Living and read a little more about Stephanie.

happy {almost} weekend

Hi Everyone-Bess here to leave you with a few photos to lead you into the weekend! I’ve recently picked up a project near New Orleans, LA. and was lucky to hop over to that area early last week for what made a very quick trip. It’s nice to get out of town every now & then to soak up a little inspiration-hope these photos bring a little of that inspiration to you as well!
