BHG stylemaker event

A week ago today I had the privilege to be on the panel at the Better Homes and Garden style maker event in NYC.  Needless to say it was loads of FUN!
Perfect details were everywhere...

After looking at these photos from Avi Gerver Photography I am noticing that I use my hands a lot!  (But I guess its OK if I can get Eddie Ross to laugh that hard.)

Eddie was as fun as you would expect him to be.  I have only spent time with him on a few occasions but I feel like we are best friends....probably because he is so likable and I stalk him on instagram.

The panel was moderated by Maxwell Ryan who is the founder and CEO of apartment therapy.  He did a great job and I really enjoyed chatting with him before and after the event.  He used to be a professor and you can see that in his thoughtful personality.

The lovely lady on the right is Annette Joseph.  She has just finished a book called picture perfect parties and I can't wait to read every page.  Annette is a photo stylist/producer who specializes in lifestyle editorial images.  I loved getting to meet her and I can wait to read how she always manages to enjoy a small glass of wine for 15 minutes before her parties begin.

It was fun to meet Sue from Zhush after reading her blog forever,  Laura Trevey from bright bold beautiful and the cute girl on the right who is starting her own line of clothing and who's name I can remember :(

I loved meeting all of the talented and fun people at BHG!


fall table

This morning is foggy with a touch of rain and cold here in Nashville.  This table setting by Roger Higgins on Style Blueprint has me in the mood for Fall cooking.

Is it just me or does today feel like Friday?


better homes and gardens

It has been a very exciting month! It was such an honor to be in BHG September issue. And tomorrow I head to NY to be part of a panel for the BHG Stylemaker event.

I am loving the soft colors in these beautiful pieces by kathryn blackmore.


zebra rug

I have been sprucing up our bathroom so when I stumbled upon these fabulous bath mats I was very tempted.  They are $88 and also come in grey which is temporarily sold out.  Thank you Jonathan Adler for making such fun things!


straw bag

I am loving these picnic baskets from food 52.  I think that they would also make a chic purse or beach bag.


vintage frasada

I am so inspired by the colors of this frasada found on MILLE.  Time to start designing Fall 2014.
