Traditional Home Hampton Designer Showhouse

Posted by

Tomorrow night is the grand opening of the Hampton Designer Showhouse, sponsored by Traditional Home. I have had a wonderful time planning and designing the master bedroom and the deck for the house, sponsored by Duralee, and I can’t wait for the big reveal tomorrow.

In fact, I’m going to give all of you a sneak peek right now! As you can see below, I used grays and bright orange to balance the masculine and feminine aspects of the room. And I continued the orange color scheme onto the deck, with help from Mecox and Ballard Design. Big thanks of course to my fabric and furnishings sponsor Duralee, and also to Lexington Home Brands for the stunning chest, Currey & Company for the lamps, Phillip Jeffries for the wallpaper, Merida Studio for the huge rug, Farrow & Ball for the Mole’s Breath paint color on the cabinetry and shelves, and Robin Rice Gallery for art.

Enjoy this early look and let me know what you think! I’m also going to share photos of the other STUNNING rooms that my friends and colleagues have designed for the showhouse on Instagram, so check those out!

Ellison's 9th Birthday

Today is a VERY special day in my world. This beautiful, smart, kind and funny girl turns 9! She has spent almost all of her birthdays at the beach and this year is no different. So thanks for letting me be away from the blog for a bit while I spend some quality time with my favorite girl!

Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 10.25.49 AMSorry I’ve been away this week! I’m working on some exciting things in New York right now – projects that I hope I can announce to you very soon. It’s been such a busy spring for us at Tobi Fairley & Associates, and I can’t wait to let you in on all the secrets!

I’ll be back in the swing of things on the blog next week – but now I’m off to the Met for the fabulous Charles James exhibit. Happy weekend!

Pray for Arkansas

Posted by

arkansas

 

My home state was hit hard by devastating tornadoes last night. Many have lost their lives, many are injured, and many more have lost their homes and everything they own, and some people may still be missing or unaccounted for.

Please join me in praying for all those impacted by these horrific storms. And please consider helping in any way you can including through the American Red Cross. Arkansans are strong people who always come together in the wake of tragedy and I know this will be no different. But it will be a long road to recovery for many in my state, so anything that you can do to help, please know my fellow Arkansans and I will be forever grateful.

Hug those you love today. Life is short.

Self-Care Saturday in the Garden

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s the day I plant all my spring flowers. And now that I have a swimming pool as the centerpiece of my back yard, I can’t wait to make things more beautiful than ever because we’ll be spending so much more time there.

And on the topic of self-care, nothing feeds my mind, body, and spirit like digging in the dirt!  I see pink petunias and chartreuse sweet potato vine in my immediate future. Any of you planting flowers today?

 

Happy Gardening! xo,
