FALL INTO BOOKS: Cathy Kincaid

October 11, 2019

You never quite forget your first crush. In this case, I am talking about my first design crush. In 2003, I was flipping through my mom’s Southern Accents magazine and stumbled upon the Dallas Showhouse designed by Cathy Kincaid. That issue remained in my nightstand for years, and was devastatingly lost during a renovation. Cathy’s

Now this is the coffee table book you want displayed! The cover alone is a statement, and I quickly made sure it has found its way to the top of my book stack. Beige is Not a Color, and I couldn’t agree more! Carlos Mota’s new book is a treasure trove of his phenomenal photography of

When it comes to beautifully patterned fabric rich in color and detail, look no further than Lisa Fine. Her new book Near & Far showcases the work of some of the top interior designers in the world using her fantastic textiles. This is definitely my “must” of the fall books.


October 7, 2019

There are SO many gorgeous fall books that are out right now from some of my favorite designers and tastemakers. I thought this first week would be the perfect time to showcase them in detail before I get into more holiday posts in the coming weeks. I thought I would start with one of my favorite

Life at the Kitchen Counter

Fall Transition Edition

A Happy House

September 4, 2019

This home recently caught my attention for all the right reasons. Ben Pentreath (designer of William and Kate) recently completed this project which is currently featured in House & Garden UK. It is full of subtle pattern, neutral texture, and the perfect infusion of color. Each room transitions with light and ease. From a navy

Friday Finds & Labor Day Sales

I don’t know about you all, but I am SO ready for this three day weekend! I am briefly escaping the brutal Texas heat for Park City with some friends. I have never been there, but excited for the change of scenery. Another great perk of this three day weekend, is all the great SALES!

In Chic Taste: Toni Gallagher

August 29, 2019

As we all know, beautiful interiors stand the test of time. Often, I revisit the work of Floridian based designer Toni Gallagher. Her spaces are full of old world elegance with fresh palettes of color and intricate use of pattern. I am shocked I haven’t given her a post of her own, because her design
