It was another successful mart! I took a million pictures and of course I can't show them all to you because that is a sure way to lull you to sleep....

But I have curated them to give you an idea about trends that are new and some that are just staples in the design industry.

To say every time I rounded a corner and got smacked with something awesome is an understatement.....even though I was lucky enough to do a small renovation in my kitchen-family room recently.....I still felt envy:)

Spoiler alert......good stuff coming up!

I was very excited to see this new line of furniture and lighting [carried by Codarus] and I loved their modern classic style!

This coffee table has my name on it!

They have an Antiques floor now and a local store here in Atlanta - Huff Harrington had some pretty things.

 This vignette was instagramed a ton!

The colors in this painting really inspired me with their grayed down version.

I headed over to Palecek.....

I love these barstools....

Ambella Home had a "mid-century" vibe which reminded me of some of the sets of Mad Men....that curved sofa.

Moss Studio

Jamie Young.....

Gabby....Loved the crusty containers with simple green.

Four Hands

Currey and Co!  Love!

Mr Brown


Designer Michelle Nussbaume has a fabric line carried by Design Legacy

And walking around the mart is a great place to see fashion also.  I am always amazed when I see women wearing shoes with high heels because as you saw from my last post it's a lot of walking!

My friend Lori May and I saw a girl with these shoes on and we both stopped her!

So cute and guess where she got them?  Clarks!

I went to buy and they were having a 2 pair for 99.00 sale! [not online though].

I am all about comfortable shoes disguised as attractive right?

Like I said earlier I am still watching Mad Men.
I'm on season 5 or 6 and it's 1968.  The thing is every time I think Don Draper is getting it together he slides back to his old ways.  And I don't want to give it away but WTH Betty Draper.....your hair!

Don you are very handsome but oh so troubled in many ways.

I wanted to up date y'all on my plantar fasciitis. Yes after 7 months it's healed.  Back on the treadmill now and even running a little.  Very carefully......and in new shoes with inserts.


One thing I have started doing is staying after class for the stretching.  Yes...bad me I would always skip out on that part:)  

I bring this up because it is Atlanta Mart time again and last July I was hobbling along wearing tennis shoes trying to get through all the walking!

I went yesterday and took some pictures of the vignettes done by various designers.
The first one was by Lauren Liess who's work always makes me giddy.

I love her new wallpaper found here behind the cabinet.

Hmmmm......black and white!

Here's the deal....I believe they get to shop the whole mart for merchandise.  That's a playground right?  Layered...check.

Here are a few more.  

This one is by Joni Vanderslice

Navy grasscloth wallpaper.....yes please!

Kill me now.....Anna Braund and Lauren Deloach

The brown walls....and of course my favorite fabric!

Next up is Dana Wolter

More great layering and of course that fabulous rug!

Meredith Ellis...

She had me with the black and white walls which was material.

Lots of texture in this one!

Betsey Mosby Interiors
This one is full of glamour.....

Next up in New York designer Jenny Wolf

Sophisticated and brassy!  I love it!

The last one is by Kristin Alber and REstyleSOURCE

More black and white goodness....

Mixing styles

Don't be scared people.....you got this!

This was my step count yesterday....whoa mama!
