We designed a home for a family in Chapel Hill, NC last year. We had a great time working with our client (you have to love great client) and Dixon Kirby the architect/builder. I will break this home up into a few posts. This first post includes the foyer, dining room, gallery, and ,my favorite, the music room. We loved the mix of traditional and modern in this home designed for a great family. You can imagine the music room with one of the children taking piano lessons or a chic cocktail party. That is what is why we love this house so much. It’s design straddles the line of elegance and livability. Take a look for yourself on our blog or pick up a copy of Southern Home magazine where the house is featured in their spring issue! Watch for the follow up posts on this home!

- The summer breeze is coming and you decide to go outside for a little… Take a seat in what we call an Igloo chair ($364) with the Tri-Zig Throw ($216), which is one of the softest and warmest that we carry in the store. Next to you would be the Outdoor Ottoman ($640) which holds everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable night under the stars! Relax with the help of one of our Indoor/Outdoor Pillows ($195), a Sky Hobnail Candle ($32), and a couple good books such as Tracery ($50) and Southern Cocktails ($14.95)!

- One of our favorite sets of chairs include a Slipcover Chair ($1,974 each) with a colorful array of throw pillows. ($572 – total price of all three pillows)
- This neutral colored, grey seat ($1,365) is deep enough to cuddle up with the Micah Cotton Throw ($182) and the Beehive Pillow ($130) to prepare for a much needed afternoon nap.
- Last but not least, the sophisticated yet comfy seating nook including an arrangement of shells and books, the perfect combination for a relaxing summer evening.
Hi all! We are excited that the Tracery book is available! So I have been going through projects that we have loved designing over the last 11 years in business. This is one of my all time favs. We had the house reshot for the book by Jean Allsopp and styled by Lynn Nesmith. I wanted to share a few photos of the home today. We worked on the project with the fabulous architects at Dungan Nequette Architects. Enjoy a look around the living room, foyer, and dining room in this home…
Until next time…
One thing us girls at Tracery L.O.V.E is a great kitchen. This is a kitchen we worked on last year during a renovation. The home is located in Old Seagrove (around the corner from my own home. It was fun to work on a project where I could ride my bike to site visits! So take a look around at this kitchen…
Now back to making my pound cake using an old school recipe. As I said…. we love kitchens.

We are so excited to share with you all that we are featured in the September issue of Traditional Home!! Check out the home of Stephanie Carter. She is a client and a friend and we had so much fun on this project in Seagrove and look forward to more fun projects in the future(we’ve been talking about some fun ones!). She is an incredible mom, friend and fashion designer and just exudes creativity. We had lots of fun brainstorming ideas for her family home. The home before was a 70’s home with teal green carpet no details and mirrors glued to the walls to laminate floors and countertops. We had lots of fun taking that dreary looking home and creating this! So pick up the issue on news stands (we are page 112-121).
I hope you enjoy reading more about this home!
P.S. Also check out page 26 where I along with some amazing designers talk about screens in the our Designers Say…. Section of the magazine.
A couple weeks ago we took off to market in Atlanta. This market trip the entire group went. So the Mountain Brook and Rosemary Beach crew met up to shop and find fun new items for the shops and our projects. AK and I headed up early to visit ADAC.
Then the next day we headed to market. Here are a few shots of what we saw at market. I always mean to take a ton of pictures then I get distracted looking at fun new product, smelling the holiday candles, absorbing all the colors and everything that is market.
Then getting close to the end of the day we just got silly. It took a couple times to get this right… And I didn’t realize some other market goer was in the middle of our group to begin with so she ended up in a couple shots!
Then the next day we headed to Scott’s Antique Market.
And of course we found time to enjoy some great dinners! We all voted that our favorite was Watershed.
As you can see we had a great trip to the ATL. Until next time…
Hi all! We are working on our website so I have been going through lots of photos of past projects. I found some photos that we had not shared with all of you and we wanted to share. We had so much fun designing this home. The team was so much fun and was so talented which made the project that much better. I will have a few more posts like this as I find more photos to share with all of you.
This beautiful painting is by artist Mallory Page. The painting paired with an antique chest and a collection of white serving pieces we found at antique shops and flea markets were just the perfect addition to the master bedroom.
This little detail appeared in the main stair hall. I loved this trophy collection so much it now resides in my own living room. The dear painting by a local 30A artist Justin Gaffrey was the perfect touch above the antique white chest we found at Scott’s Antique Market.
One of the other small items I kept after the house was complete. This funny little dog. Someone along the way broke his leg and glued it back on. He added the perfect bit of southern character to the coffee table. He now lives on my desk at the Tracery studio.

Everyone have a great weekend!
