randomness lately

I can’t think of a post that has any type of continuity right now so here we go… randomness… things we have done lately….

Bess and I styled a photo shoot for a magazine. The new Vie should be out in a few weeks. An issue about a preppy summer.


Doug and I met with one of our fav clients and worked on their new house.


One of our clients and one of my best friends had a house concert…


I always love her chandelier…


I made my grandmother’s cornbread.


I drove through the fields of South Alabama… Where I am from…


We have some fun finds from flea markets, antique shop etc. for the 2012 Southern Living Idea House. Here they are on a cart at our “little warehouse”.


We installed a house in Alys Beach.


And we installed a gulf front home… More on these later.

So anyway… this is some of what we have been up to lately.

I had dinner tonight outside with my husband. April and May at the beach are amazing. It is great to sit outside with a great bottle of wine and enjoy the evening.



Southern Living Bedrooms

Hi all! We have been totally MIA… A little nuts around here. We have been working on lots of projects but wanted to give you a few more updates on the Southern Living House.

The 2 bedrooms upstairs are going to be classic southern farmhouse style with a clean lined more modern pieces mixed in to give the rooms the total Tracery look and feel. Here are shots of the fabrics for both bedrooms.

The first one is a very neutral scheme with the linen duvet, white wood walls, and gingham pillows and drapes.


In the second upstairs bedroom we have a room focused around blues. The bed is layered with the ticking stripe and plaid bedding. The drapes are the khaki and navy striped fabric. The room is going to feel like a classic room with a little whimsy introduced in the farmyard print wallpaper in the bathroom.


Back to a little more work tonight! (but we did just finish dinner here at home… It is taco Tuesday at our house which is always a family fav)
