It's spider season.  Just thought I would throw that out there:)  They seem to be everywhere.  Real and fake.  I'm not a fan......

Y'all I'm coming down from my "magazine cover high".  Back to regular life and work.  My brain is not quite working at 100% though.

The other day I was happily enjoying my morning when I got a text from my curtain installer...."Are we still on for 10 am".  Huh?  Well....yeah sure but thinking I had to be 45 minutes away by 11:00 it was going to be tight.

No worries I got myself together....got to the install [3 roman shades] and then headed to the luncheon up in Milton, Georgia.  All good...thinking I might be 10 minutes late which I texted to advise.

OK....here is where it get's a little "old lady crazytown".  First of all it's a luncheon....a drop by sort of thing.  Why am I texting to say I'll be late?  Second....I pull into the driveway at 11:10 and see NO cars.  Hmmmmmm.

I call my friend to make sure I am at the right place and then I casually throw in "what time does it start again?"  12:30.  Good Lord.  I am not just a little early....I am an hour and 20 min early.

They let me in anyway.  And I am sure they got a good laugh that afternoon when it was over.  My reputation may be tarnished.

But....there is always a silver lining and this one was good as I got to take some pictures of this incredible house!

Let's start with the foyer....

Of course she had me right from the get go.  A little black and white perfection!

And now that I am a color girl....this Cole and Son wallpaper is crazy good!

The ceiling!

Welcome to the butlers pantry....it's the size of my kitchen!

Lindsay [her house] and Jennifer [she let me in early].....They are cute and Talented!

Below is the kitchen.....

Small details as it was just photographed!

Here is where you might get just a tiny bit envious....the outdoor area....

But wait.....


This part got me tingly....I'm not gonna lie.

The family room....

Good Lord....it was all just incredible....

Perfect little chair....

We are talking "house Beautiful" color!

Powder room.

And this bedroom was so dreamy!

These vintage doors leading into the bedroom....

The master bath.....

Ceiling in the closet!
Are you in love....I mean the details were everywhere!

There is a lot of good ideas here.....like don't forget the ceilings:)  A lot of white walls....with color added.

I'm kind of glad I barged in early:)

Happy Halloween!




Thanks!  I feel like you guys understand and can appreciate the stretch this was for me:)

One of the many sponsors of the House Beautiful Concept House was Replacements, Ltd.  They sent all this beautiful china for us to work with!

If you aren't familiar with them.....they started as a small company in 1981.  I can remember ordering a piece of my silver from them many years ago!  

When I was at Highpoint last spring I saw some gorgeous tables set by designers and it was a moment!

Starting with this one by my friend Lisa Mende!

The one below by Denise McGaha

Parker Kennedy Living

So pretty....make me almost want to have a brunch:)  I came to my senses pretty quick though....haha

MA Allen Interiors

I couldn't go this year because of all the HB events but everyone was talking about this gorgeous pink table by Tracy Zeller!

Madcap Cottage went with plates on the wall....

Savage Interior design

This is the dining room of the House Beautiful showhouse.  The Circa Lighting bell jars are fabulous!  Since I know you are going to ask....the built in china cabinets are painted Ben Moore Amazon Green.  Walls are BM White Dove.

They sent us some pretty pieces to mix and match....

We actually mixed them.....

And by the way....these gorgeous Charles Stewart chairs are now for sale!  The fabric is a Thibaut Crypton and they are gorgeous.  If you are interested please call Charles Stewart Atlanta 404 876 3799.  There is 8 of them.

You probably won't be surprised to know that my china is a bone white with a gold trim....neutral!

Last night was the final event and it was sad to say goodbye to the whole House Beautiful team.  They have been here for 10 days putting on sometimes 2 events a day with sponsors!

So many more post to share with you about all the rooms and furniture.

My feet hurt.  7 events for me.  7 outfits.  Makeup on and hair.  Stick a fork in me.....I'm done.
