When it comes to wonderful taste, we know you’ll agree that when it was dished out, Talbot Cooley got more than her fair share!

Her interiors are rich and luxe without being over the top, clean and modern without being off-the-wall. We are swooning over these lamps… And the painting, of course! We can’t get enough yellow these days.

In short, every room makes us want to take a second look! It can be tough to find the perfect accessory for an island. This shell filled with orchids is a beautiful statement.
