BEAUTIFUL IN NASHVILLE

if you have been following me on instagram you might have noticed i’ve been in nashville the last few days. i used to live in nashville many years ago so it’s aways fun to visit and see friends.

this trip was extra fun (i might add today was a beautiful day here in nashville, it was literally 70 degrees, it felt like spring had arrived) because tonight it was announced that sarah bartholomew and i would be doing the decorations for the 2017 swan ball that benefits cheekwood. sarah is one of my dearest friends. it’s going to be so fun working with her on this event. it was also announced that carolina herrera would be the honorary chair.

the unveiling party which announces the annual event was hosted by my friend julie frist at her home, boxwood. boxwood is so beautiful. what a wonderful place to spend the evening. looking forward to coming back soon to nashville and having a beautiful ball!

COMFORTABLE RESTRAINT

This months vogue features antique dealer and interior design rose uniacke’s london home. it’s a lesson in comfortable restraint.

i’m always inspired by rose’s work and eye. it’s somewhat spiritual. the writer of the vogue article sums up rose’s work pretty well when describing the drawing room…..”the effect is spare, sumptuous, and deeply seductive- an otherwordly enviornment in which contradictions thrive: austere and atmospheric; raw and luxurious; grand and intimate; rigorous and relaxed.”

well, it all sounds pretty perfect, and it is.
