Showcasing Showers’ work on vacation locales across the US, Carribean, and Canada, it’s like Spring Break in a book.

The designer’s blend of Hollywood high style, mid-century modernism and classic 18th century French shines through in each locale creating spaces that are glamorous yet accessible.
The designer! Aren’t those orchids divine?

Monday Musings: Bar Cart Styling

Worlds Away
Good morning, friends! We hope you all had an amazing weekend. We had a great time at the High Point Furniture Market. It’s always fun to see what’s new! One of our favorite vendors is always Worlds Away. At October’s market, we picked this fabulous Worlds Away bar cart for the Beaufort house. We think it’s going to go in the dining room, but the entrance hall is also a possibility. 
The Doodle House
We think they’re beautiful no matter how you style them, but, for our purposes, our bar cart is going to be — well — a bar!
Design Schematic
We like the type of set up where the glasses are included, so everyone can sip in style with no trips to the kitchen!
Werd
Having a cutting board right on the bar cart is genius! No cocktail — or Perrier — is complete without a fresh squeeze of lemon or lime!
Timeout Chicago
We’d never thought of using magazines as part of our bar cart decor. National Geographic makes a great conversation starter too!
Wayfair
One of the things we saw everywhere at market were vases with a few banana leaves. We love the look on a table. Why not a bar cart?
Serena and Lily
These beautiful accessories complement the main event.
Simply Seductive
Color coordinating the bar is beautiful, but we like to be able to serve anyone his or her favorite drink at a moment’s notice!
Jan Showers
There’s nothing that makes a room like the perfect lighting. Adding a lamp to a bar cart really makes things shine!
Sally Wheat Interiors
A gorgeous ice bucket is a bar cart essential.

Everything’s better with a few fresh stems. Which ones are adorning your home today?

Things We Love: Glass top Coffee Tables

Jan Showers
A great coffee table is about so much more than just a place to set your coffee.
Phoebe Howard
One of the most important focal points in any room, when guests are gathered for a visit, the coffee table is one of the things in the room most continuously in view.
Tobi Fairley
A glass-top table is our hands-down favorite for a variety of reasons.
Dana Lyon Designer
A glass-top table feels light and airy, which you know we can’t get enough of. 
pinterest
It’s super practical because you can actually set your coffee on it and then just wipe the ring away! Or the Crayola glass crayons… You know, whatever. 
dmagazine
If you have a funky, fun, fabulous rug on your floor, a glass-top coffee table doesn’t cover that up.
Phoebe Howard Design
Any accessories coordinate beautifully, so if you have something great to display, then knock yourself out.
Ginger Barber Design
But, a glass-top table is also the perfect vehicle for a super-simple stack of books. 
Lonny Magazine
Either way, the look is crisp and clean. 
Katie Rosenfeld Design
From funky and modern to tailored and undeniably classic, a gorgeous, glass-top table can work in any room.
Barrie Benson Design
These rams are good karma. They’re the mascot for our UNC Tarheels, who we’ll be cheering on today as they play the ECU Pirates. Go Heels!
Wherever you are today, we hope your team wins too! (Unless, of course, your team is ECU…)
