Since my husband has been retired he does a lot of the grocery shopping.  Of course that can be a bad thing sometimes because his love of a bargain can sway his decisions.  Like toilet paper.  For crying out loud if he comes home with single ply toilet wait it's less that single's like some 3rd world country stuff.....I can't even.  I'll boil it up for dinner.

Husbands....gotta love em.

So the other day I was searching the wide world web and came across some pictures showing a project where bloggers had put together rooms using everything Overstock!  Further research made me aware that this happened in pardon me while I post on this old news....

Jenny Komenda, Cassandra LaValle, Kirsten Grove, Ashley Wilson and Dabito each flexed their design muscle to plan a space and then Overstock implemented it.

The house was pretty awesome....

My favorite.

So that got me thinking.....
I took to Overstock and put together some rooms....very loosely of course:)

Using neutrals...of course:)

Using the same sofa.....

art, tree, [I love this one] rug, coffee table, light, throw, pillow, pillow, pillow

I usually go to Wayfair first or All Modern when searching....but I was quite impressed with some of the goods I discovered!

Sorry this is a little late but I had to go workout and come back and finish.  Searching and tagging all this stuff takes forever right?

Anyway....hope you can use a thing or 2.




Y'all I am losing it.  Or just not paying attention.  I posted the same picture on Instagram one month apart.....not even remembering.....saying practically the same thing. thing you know I'll be posting about broken toilets.  Might be time to hang it up.

Oh well....#oldpeople 

I was at the Mart yesterday soaking in all the pretty merchandise..... none of which I need by the way.  But.....surely I have a client that could use something.....that's my story.  And of course....running into my design friends is always a plus.  Pictures coming Monday.

On to design.....I got an email from Schumacher about some new fabrics and trims....

First up is this tone on tone damask....which I am already in love with!

This boho style pattern is pretty snazzy.....

More boho

This one has a raised crewel pattern on it.

Some pretty trims....

This wallpaper....

Also in the article was this picture....

This is Nancy "princess" Pyne....and....yes my favorite pattern from Schumacher is named after her.   Her  home was designed by Albert Hadley who it's said had sourced this iconic pattern from England in the 1960's.

Apparently she was downsizing in 2008 and enlisted Mr. Hadley to help with her decorating again.  The upholstery was in need of recovering and since the original patterned chintz was no longer in production they did it in a stripe.  She never liked it.  Don't blame her.  

Schumacher reached out to her in 2008 and she gave then a few leftover swatches.  They recreated the pattern....and bam....Pyne Hollyhock was born!

Miss Nancy...who is 94 by the way....finally got her Hollyhock back!

If you have been reading Design Indulgence for a while then you know my OBSESSION with this pattern.  

I used it for my One Room Challenge about  7 years or so ago.....and I am not tired of it one bit.  

So I jumped on Pinterest and found a few rooms that share my obsession.

Lauren Liess

Olivia Brock

Suellen Gregory

Dwell By Cheryl

Cheryl told me she actually found 13 yards of it at a thrift shop....I WOULD DIE.

Michele Adams

A few years ago they finally came out with the wallpaper!

Andrew Flesher

Laura Design Co.

Over the years they have added different colorways!

Of course Charcoal is my personal fav.....with Tobacco a close second!

So there you have it....your fabric history lesson.

I have been listening to  the podcast Cold while walking Cami and if you like "true crime" stories this is a good one!

Let me know if you have listened to any other good True Crime podcast!




Yesterday was my first day back working out....don't get me wrong I walked 5 miles at the beach everyday but you know....not anything where my heart rate got elevated.'s hard getting back on that horse.

Oh yeah in case you are wondering....I'm still on WW.  Haven't lost anymore weight but basically I think I am just maintaining right now.....except for maybe gaining a couple of pounds over the holidays:)  My theory is that I try to be good 75% of the time and allow for that 25% failure..... just allowing for social situations where I might want to indulge!

Anyway we all know the easy part is losing the's keeping it off that is hard!

What's better to talk about in the new year than pillows right?

One of my favorite pillow sources is Danielle Oaky's Pillow Shop.

I could seriously buy everyone of her pillows....change them out weekly like it was my job.

How cute is she?

About as adorable as her pillows!  They have this easy California a pair of khaki's and a white t shirt.

She definitely has a way with pattern mixing....

How about these colors???  Are you swooning yet?

I love how she anchors the grouping with black.....[surprised?]

Casual linens.....

Fresh patterns.....

Do you love???

Part of the problem is when I see all these I CAN'T DESIDE which ones I I need pillows.....that is like saying Oprah needs money.

So you guys might have seen the picture of when I had IPL laser for my sun damage...... the day after Christmas.

So here is a before and I do have a very light foundation on....actually it's more of a tinted moisturizer and some blush.

What a difference!  I'm pretty stoked with the results and I am getting it done again on Feb 22.

Maintenance people. I had it done at Dermatology Affiliates in Buckhead

Well today I am off to try and finish up staging/organizing my stepsons house so he can sell it and move to Morocco!  I raided my old pillow stash to help and I am happy to get rid of some them!
