J.Crew pieces (like the ankle-length neon coral jeans below) are so versatile these days, don’t you think?!

Just got these puppies in the mail today (SUPER on sale) and had to start planning ensembles immediately!

Money well spent, I think…

VS.

Moody lighting helps too…

YOWZAS!! It has been a HOT minute…

…since we last posted folks!

Life took over for a moment there, BUT we are back in action! Yay!

To get things rolling again, here a few interior spaces we find inspiring and oh-so-lovely this Spring season.

We hope you do too…

Because who doesn’t enjoy male nudes paired with a zebra skin rug when it looks this elegant?

Lovely, simple lines.  A similar side table can be found at Ballard Designs

Jonathan Adler’s Chinese Chippendale Chairs–a fun and quirky take on a classic.

Neon hues aren’t just for apparel.  This trend translates into interiors as well.  Pair with more traditional pieces for a modern and tasteful look.

Fruit Punch Dreams…this over-the-top look makes our mouths water for Blue Hawaiian daiquiris at Gene’s Po Boys in New Orleans, LA….

And for those who desire a more understated outdoor look…

Bamboo overload.  Too much?  Never, as far as we’re concerned.

Amazing!! Dying to try it… Must hit the $10 print table at Scott’s soon!

Wall color can be the most impactful part of a room.  How different would this space be without that gorgeous pop of color?

Proof that a piece of art can make a room.  Especially if it’s a Matisse.

And finally…..Like avocado formica.  But different.

Bisous! Xx

Highlands Antique Mall

While on the farm (a couple months ago), we did a little shopping at Highlands Antique Mall in Dothan, AL, and found an amazing selection of treasures, ranging from quirky oddities to beautiful objects.   However, the store’s best feature is it’s price point—every item is BEYOND reasonable.

If you’re ever down that way, a visit will be well-worth your time.  See below for some of our favorite finds.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look At Our Sunday Shoot

February 14, 2012 § Leave a comment

Sunday afternoon we had the pleasure of styling a shoot photographed by Cameron Adams of Atlanta Street Fashion featuring bow ties by Brier & Moss.  Co-founders Jonathan Snyder and Nick Barnes kindly allowed us a sneak peek at their first line of neckwear,  which launched last week.  These brightly colored bow ties pack a powerful punch for the dapper don, and it was a joy to work with these pieces.

We would also like to thank Jonathan for modeling in the shoot as well as our dear friends Patrick Walsh, Janel Blancett, and Birney Robert.  Lastly, thank you Cameron for taking these lovely photos as well.

Here are our behind-the-scenes shots:
