Get your dose of good taste this Tuesday with the luscious, uber chic style of Wesley Moon. From soothing blues to glamorous metallics, beautiful built-ins to peerless porches, indoors or out, it’s hard to pick a favorite space.
We hope you loved this great taste as much as we did. Thanks so much for making us a part of your week!
THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO READ MY LATEST NOVEL SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE! I AM SO GRATEFUL TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. IF YOU HAVE READ, WOULD YOU CONSIDER WRITING A BRIEF REVIEW ON AMAZON? YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE PURCHASED THERE TO REVIEW, AND REVIEWS HELP AUTHORS SO VERY MUCH! THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
And speaking of books… Slightly South of Simple launches in less than three weeks! The lovely Katie Clooney at Preppy Empty Nester included it in her April Books, TV & Movies. She said, “I just finished it, and in a few words, I loved this book.” Thank you, Katie!
Good morning, chic readers! We have such a treat for you today: A fabulous, newly built Jacksonville, FL home designed by one of our favorite designers, Andrew Howard.
Howard told Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles: “I wanted it to feel like a collected home that had recently been updated.”
Taking a peek around the gorgeous house, we’d say he achieved that goal completely.
Wood cabinets can make a home feel dark and closed in, but this light color is rich, gorgeous and adds warmth without feeling dark.
This chic banquette is the perfect way to take advantage of a stunning water view. We wouldn’t ever want breakfast to end!
This backsplash and counter scheme is anything but ordinary. As shades of gray go, this is the perfect one.
When it comes to blues, Andrew Howard really knows how to pick ’em. The layered look of this dining room proves that pattern, texture and color can really make the dining room come to life.
Deep blues like this are some of our favorite color picks for 2017. They lend a masculine touch to an office that’s an alternative to traditional wood paneling and, with the right touches, can also be feminine and glamorous.
This spa-like retreat complements the beautiful ocean beyond the doors. The blues and tans bring the outdoors in beautifully.
Speaking of spa-like… This bathroom is positively stunning–and oh-so relaxing.
We think laundry rooms should be lovely if at all possible. Who wouldn’t want to do laundry in this gorgeous space?
One of our favorite things about Andrew Howard’s style is how effortlessly he infuses color into his schemes. This happy poppy color is both restful and fun–the perfect combination!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! We always love it when you do.
We tend to think of snow and white when Christmastime comes around. But, we have to admit, that this wide expanse of blue is just the sort of thing we could get used to celebrating. No matter what the backdrop, the good taste of the fabulous Foley & Cox will fill your day with inspiration.
Inspiration is something we could use a little bit of right about now. Usually, we’re pretty much ready for the holidays by this point. We get most of our shopping done by Thanksgiving.
This year, I have done basically no shopping for anyone. (Including myself. I generally end up sneaking a few things for myself in there while I’m shopping for others, so that’s really saying something.)
On the bright side, my little guy has only asked Santa for one thing, and I know EXACTLY what it is!!
That’s cause for celebration, right? Because there is nothing worse than when their little hearts are just pining away for something, and they keep telling every mall/dentist office/dock/toy store Santa that they want it and you have no idea what they’re talking about and neither does Google.
When Google doesn’t know, you’re toast.
But, joyfully, the one special toy has been ordered, and I love shopping for surprises. Five-year-olds are fun to shop for. If only everyone else could be so easy!
And, with twelve days until our first celebration, I got the wild hair to decorate the kids’ table for our first family Christmas celebration. I’ll be posting on Instagram this afternoon when I finish messing with it.
Let’s just say that Meri Meri did not sponsor the table, but they really could have. Santa Party Poppers, reindeer cups, Nutcracker plates, the most adorable placecards ever… Really, it’s just more fun to decorate the kids’ table!
I suspect that it will also be more fun than I’m thinking to do the rest of my Christmas shopping as well. I’m just going to click through one of our latest and greatest gift guides and call it a day!
Or, well, actually…
If the owner of this beauty would like to whisk us off to Paris for the weekend, we think we could easily finish our shopping there. (Or just snag one of these cashmere throws!) We have to say that, of all the good taste of Foley & Cox, we think this might be our very favorite!
Have you finished your shopping yet? Either way, we hope your holiday season has been merry and bright so far!
