I’ve been so into my self care Saturday that I haven’t even taken a moment to blog. That’s what’s so great about self care, right?

I have been nestled in on this rainy Spring Saturday with my daughter and my 2 pups and so far we’ve watched 3 movies. The ultimate in self-care is surrounding yourself with Love.

Next up Easter egg dyeing with mustaches no doubt. I mustache you a question…have you dyed your eggs yet? He he!

Hope your day has been filled with as much joy and love as mine.

Happy Easter Y’all!

Posted by

I am thrilled to say that we are now less than two weeks away from the US launch of Ronda Carman’s amazing new book, Designers at Home!

I cannot even begin to say what a highly-anticipated publication this is! Of course, I’m personally excited because my home is among those featured, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what all there is to love about this book!

You’ll also get a peek into the homes and lives of Ashley Hicks, Hutton Wilkinson, Nicky Haslam,  Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kevin Sharkey, Suzanne Rheinstein, Rose Tarlow, Jay Jeffers, Jan Showers, Alex Papachristidis, Madeline Stuart, Colette van den Thillart, Malcolm James Kutner, Ken Fulk, Bunny Williams, and MORE! Talk about good company, right?

Woops! How did that happen? That photo just popped right up, and it’s supposed to be kept tightly underwraps! Shhhh. (Did you notice that even sweet Harley made the shot?!)

So, in addition to the many gorgeous homes featured, Ronda’s writing is also just as brilliant and inspiring in this book as on her blog, and she will make you see how you too can have a beautiful home that expresses your own sense of style. Read more about the book: HERE.

Ronda has planned the launch of this book to align perfectly with her appearance at my upcoming Camp Tobi Fairley event: The Journey to Getting Published. And what that really means is that I have one VERY BIG celebration to plan!

If you’re going to be in the area for this exciting launch, please join us for one of Ronda’s signings at Cobblestone & Vine:

Happy Feet

I am walking on my “happy feet” today because I am feeling like a new woman. Two days working from my bed did the trick for a full recovery from my little sinus infection.

Now maybe I should put on some hot pink shoes, eat some gorgeous macaroons and do a little happy dance! Wanna join me?

Don’t Fret! Fretwork Design Inspiration

Posted by

Good-Morning-Arkansas1

This morning, I’m on KATV’s Good Morning Arkansas sharing some design inspiration. Fretwork is a trend that has really exploded in the last few years, and I’m excited to see that it’s making an appearance in lots of amazing new wallcoverings, fabrics, and furniture details. Enjoy the segment in this video:

KATV – Breaking News, Weather and Razorback Sports

Strictly speaking, fretwork is a geometric design carved from wood, but it is a visual motif that can has endless applications (think: furniture, lighting, accessories, textiles, and MORE)! It can also enhance any mood from glam to playful to stately.

Have a look at more fretwork inspiration from my own design portfolio:
