LUNCH AT LISA'S





Nice job Sherry.....just drop the ball on blogging for a week.  I know...not sure what happened but it just seemed ridiculous to be talking about design after what happened in our country.

It weighed so heavy on my heart as I know it did for everyone.....especially those of you with young children.  I was at lunch with a few designers and bloggers when the news broke....and everyone of the girls wanted to leave and grab their kids.

Can't blame them.....

Here is a group photo taken that day.



To say that Lisa's home was gorgeous was an understatement!  She has such a talent for bringing together old and new and curating it to create a story.

I took a zillion of pictures but my favorites were...

This shot from her living room.  So pretty.  Creamy walls, curtains...wall to wall seagrass and that canvas just killed me dead.

Bang.


This is her guest room....I want to copy down to the last grain of loveliness...isn't it romantic?



Here is a door in the same guest room....



And her newly remodeled powder room....slap me.

I actually got stuck in there as apparently I can't operate a pocket door.  What started out as a small whisper....hello?  Then a small knock and soon pounding like a serial killer was after me was a tad embarrassing.  For goodness sake Sherry.....get a grip.


A blurry little vignette...iPhone sometimes let's you down.

How cute is this?

Checks and vintage...winning combination.  I love how her home flowed...she is definitely true to her style meaning that each room was not full of trends....but a continuing  story of her composition.


AND she cooked all the food.  I can manage the decorating...and cleaning the house.  BUT cooking the food is where I draw the line.  My idea of slaving over the stove is grilled cheese sandwiches.

Thanks Lisa for this home tour that I managed to snap in-between bites of that mouthwatering pasta.

I completed my last install yesterday.  After I try to edit my crappy pictures......hopefully a post is coming soon.

You guys hang in there....

Merry Christmas to the best readers ever!

Merry Christmas to you too, Sherry! I haven't blogged in a week either. Just too sad and felt silly talking about fabric. I probably will today. Lisa's home is indeed lovely. Looks like a fun bunch of ladies!

um YUM to that last pic. and her house is stunning. as always, i LOL'ed when you said you couldnt operate a pocket door

Is that you in the middle with the stunning emerald scarf?

That powder room sink is awesome. Does that one handle control both the hot and cold water? I've never seen that. It might be illegal in Massachusetts. We have Puritanical "blue" laws against almost everything.

Merry Christmas!

What a beautiful home - I want to live there!!! I'm seriously in love with that runner on the stairs. Glad I haven't done a runner yet because that seriously might have me going in a different direction. You are always inspiring me with the things you share on this blog, Sherry. How did I live without you?

Sherry- That is a beautiful hone. Gorgeous- Love the bathroom. We have several of those pocket doors and when we first moved in I can't tell you how many times MyHero locked himself in the bathroom before he figured out what that silver thing that turned was! lol I can just HEAR YOU now! I am glad you are back blogging. I took a few days off, too. I was just mind whipped for a while. xo Diana

Flying Designer said...

Merry Christmas Sherry! What a beautiful home - I must visit her booth at Queen of Hearts. Once, I was locked into the tiny United Express lav and thought I was going to die when the f/a had to help me AND I was in uniform. Can you say dumb-bunny!

HAMPTON HOSTESS said...

what a beautiful luncheon! Love that guest bedroom--who would want to leave!

Lisa Gabrielson said...

Sherry! I love you!!! Thank you so much for your friendship and generosity. Your readers are so sweet and I appreciate them taking the time to stop by my blog to say hi. A very Merry Christmas to all!! P.s. the last John Saladino comment practically had me in tears. He is my idol.

My Crafty Home Life said...

Wait, I need the recipe for that cheesy yummy thing. I know that with a glass of wine, it will be my new favorite yummy goodness. I bet her guests never leave with that room.

michele said...

Sherri, sorry to have missed meeting you yet again! I was one of those who missed what was without a doubt a beautiful afternoon with a group of lovely ladies. I too had a difficult time posting anything, and since we are in the process of adopting a six year old, I was afraid to let her out of my sight on Friday. Thanks for sharing pics of Lisa's lovely home..hopefully she'll take rainchecks :)for those of us who couldn't make it...

René said...

I enjoyed the pics of you on the stairs recently on facebook? So many familiar faces! You had me with the decor (and yes it is gorgeous, really pretty) until the pocket door incident. You crack me up!

The enchanted home said...

Stunning home...good food, great friends, what more do you need!
Merry Christmas!

StagerLinda said...

I haven't blogged this week either-couldn't get past the heartache of the families...Anyway, I enjoyed the pictures of Lisa's lovely home. Merry Christmas, Sherry.

Taylor Greenwalt said...

sherry, I don't think I would want to leave...her house looks amazing. Wish I could see the dinning room...all those mirrors in a big frame look interesting.

Karen said...

Sherry I couldn't agree more. It's been a very rough time for America and the sadness is not going away anytime soon, or ever for some.

Lisa's home is lovely. It's nice to be with friends in a beautiful home and count our blessings. Wishing you a Merry Christmas with your family and a healthy 2013.

Wow, she has such a nice home. I love the guest room too... romantic and charming. That bed looks so inviting...like you could stay there all day!

Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

Merry Christmas to you Sherry! I have to say, if you have to be stuck in a bathroom, that gorgeous bath would be my pick.

PURA VIDA said...

Wishing you a blessed and Merry Christmas. I have so enjoyed your wonderful blog! Gina
