Many times when I am starting a plan for a client I try to find a fabric that is not used very often. It's my way of giving them that little extra effort of hiring a designer to personalize their space.
Recently I posted a picture of a plan on Instagram and I got a few emails asking about one of the fabrics.
The fabric in the middle is by Kerry Joyce Textiles.
Kerry is an LA based designer. He was repeatedly selected as one of America's Best interior designers for 7 years by House Beautiful. In the examples below you can see his clean lines and sophisticated textures with a touch of glamour.
This room is so beautifully curated. I love the rich texture of the velvet sofas, natural fiber rugs along with white walls.
I am a fan of 2 sofas.... if there is space, and that beautiful mirror over the mantel.
Oh mommie....those walls and white bedding.
Again...white walls and then the warmth of wood. Love the brass window hardware and the leather sofa at the foot of the bed. Also notice the wood on the ceiling.
His look is classic and timeless. Let's hear it for the framed ferns huh!
And then....these turquoise steps. Now I am officially in love.
But....just when you think you understand his style you see this....
But back to his fabrics.
I think his style reminds me a little of Daryl Carter and Thomas O'Brian....what about you?
Yesterday I worked in the yard all day. Y'all that kind of hard labor is not for wimps. I had this whole area of rosemary [planted years ago] that had gotten out of hand and then of course the winter weather was not kind.
I was sick of looking at it so I pulled those prickly bushes up. Unfortunately I don't have before pictures cause usually when I start yard work I lose interest quickly and don't finish it.
Some sort of miracle happened yesterday and I completed the whole task.
I still have some planting to do in another area....but I am crossing this one off my list.
I got smart this time and put the rosemary in containers. My favorite thing is this old birdbath I got at Scotts probably 8 years ago.
This area might not look that big but I put in 22 plants and used 10 huge bags of mini pint nuggets.
Right in the middle is a Crapemyrtle and my husband decided to give it a little trim....I guess he wanted to feel useful as he has a bad back and really can't do much yard work.
It looks like a dead shrub now. Bless his heart.
OK....so next up on Wednesday are updates on the ORC. You ready?
