Baby it is live, as I am sure you all know! And the cover had me at "modern country".....that photo is stunning. Congratulations to Janell and her team because they are working it so right.....
Next up I have a few pictures/ideas from a store I went to recently in Atlanta.....yes another one. Stand down people....I KNOW all of you do not live here but this is my hometown and I have to support all these design/home stores. Retail is tough out there!
Boxwoods Garden and Gifts has an eclectic mix of decorative accessories, antiques and vintage furniture. It has always been a go to place if you needed a beautiful arrangement that might include an orchid, greenery and a beautiful container. Now they have opened a home store.
WOWZA.....it is beautiful!
This was on display right when you walked in, and I have to say that Brook and Steve would be proud. There is quite the "patina style" in this store!
The stairs are just raw pine, but with a gray stain on them.....
I love how primitive they look.
Yes siree bob.....I want this ceiling.
The white wood is just strips of PLYWOOD.....white washed. Uh huh......
Burlap curtains...so simple! The walls were a beautiful grayish french blue.
Holy Christmas......this chair has my name written all over it.....invisible ink...:)
Want some dishes with greek key? I do.
How about some hot damn gorgeous silverware!!!
This chest started singing when I looked at it. I think it felt it's own "hotness"....
Burlap padded walls.....I want these when they finally put me away :)
The edge of a cool bench....
Need some smokin cool tablecloths?
Yeah...this had me dreaming.....what a ceiling.
White and gray with a touch of green is so damn special....
I like that you can hang this on the wall...
Old shutters....dishes stacked....and a cool console. Just doesn't get much better.
Everywhere I looked....gorgeousness.....If you are in Atlanta....you must go take a look. There is so much to see here.
OK...one last thing. Has anyone seen the HGTV show Donna Decorates Dallas??? That is one crazy show. I thought it was supposed to be funny at first. OK....I am not going to sit here like I am the authority on all things design because that is not the case. But I am just wondering is it a regional thing? Kind of like Swedish design is light and airy, and homes in the mountains are kind of woodsy and such? Cause that girl can pile on the bling.
I guess that is why there is chocolate, strawberry and vanilla......everybody wants something different. For me.....and I am like Oprah right now [remember when she said she didn't like beef].....it is not quite my style...just saying. On a positive note...she is real pretty. And she will do an install in 6 inch heels..gotta hand it to her on that one.
Last chance for the giveaway......
52 days until Christmas.....Get going!
