Things of Note

I cam relate to everything in the House Beautiful article, You Know Your Decorating Style is Maximalist  When...

Speaking of maximalist, did you see Bailey's #projectholly featured on Style Me Pretty?
I have been following this on Instagram for over a year.  I really like everything Bailey does. It is fun, colorful without being too trendy.

The Top 10 Designers to Follow on Pinterest.
Any you think should be added to the list?

I have been trying to grow my bangs out and it has been very unpleasant. I finally just gave in and cut them again.  If you are in Raleigh and looking for a place to get your hair did, my stylist just opened her own place Stella and Blake. Whitney is genius when it comes to cut and color. Please tell her I sent you! If you are not due for cut and color, my friends at Parlor Dry Bar have set up shop. There is nothing like a blow out to help beat the winter blues.Treat yo self.

I found a tiny crystal lamp similar to this Thomas O'Brien goodness at Home Goods. I tend to think bigger is better, but sometimes good things come in small packages.

The Secretary Obsession

In my opinion, which is not worth much, every house could use a secretary desk. The possibilities are endless. They are functional and pretty.
I am pretty picky when it comes to my secretaries. I am waiting for the perfect piece. The one I will want to keep a lifetime. What are you currently hunting for? Do tell.

Designer Crush: Suellen Gregory

I have decided to start a new series to highlight some of my favorite designers and architects. 
Thanks to Pinterest, we rarely click to figure out where the pretty picture comes from. 

 Suellen Gregory is an interior designer based out of Richmond, Virginia. Her timeless designs are pretty much what my adult house dreams are made of.

This is one of my favorite entry ways of all time.






This image has made it's way around Pinterest as one of the most coveted laundry rooms.




 Nothing more Southern than a chintzy bedroom with pretty monograms.

Currently Obsessed: For Your Home

La Cornue Stove | This highly coveted stove makes my heart pitter patter every time I see it. The price tag does the same. Does anyone actually own one? I would love to hear the good/bad.

Toile Bedding | The crazy granny in me loves a good toile. The only thing that could make this bedding better is a matching wallpaper. 

Easy Change Wallpaper | Speaking of toile, this Easy Change Wallpaper courtesy of Sherwin Williams is an affordable must! Great for the fickle decorator. You can spot it in one of my favorite home tours.

Diptyque Baies | Over the holidays Diptyque was having a special and I purchased a few baby candles. I mean what kind of blogger would I be without a Diptyque? I get the hype.  My favorites are the Baies and the Feu De Bois.

Country Pendant | My farmhouse obsession continues. These pendants are the best thing I have seen in a long time. 

Floral Pillow | My favorite fabric of all time. I have them in my house and they never get old. Furbish is now selling them on the website.

Around Our House...

This weekend was spent cleaning and trying to finish our bathrooms. I am still missing some hardware, a shower curtain and mirror frame. Projects in the Short house tend to take a little extra time.
