HAPPY NEW YEAR AND DESIGN IN CHARLOTTE



Happy New Year to all of you!  I hope that your year is off to a great start.  I know that I have been busy with plans for some new products and services.

I was thrilled with the Golden Glob winners.  Lal La Land was one of the best movies I have seen!  If you haven't been to see it, GO!

Below are images of a home that drew me in by its mixture of new and old.  I love the way Betsy Brown, a Birmingham, Alabama interior designer, created the interior of this home for a Charlotte, NC couple. The use of art, natural materials, and texture here is beautiful.  So chic!  ENJOY!

 It has been a painstaking task deciding which images to share.  This book is nothing short of spectacular elegance.
Kelly has included the work from her entire career and her own homes in the book;  40 years and almost 300 pages of beautiful.  This will definitely be on my Christmas list.
