Jaw Dropping Tablescapes by Linda Horsley

A trip to Atlanta isn't complete without visiting Linda Horsley Antiques and being mesmerized by her masterful and beautiful tablescapes. Here are some pics from this past February. I'd love to write more about them but my day-job calls...hope you're having a great week.

Richard Taylor at Round Top & a Giant Clam at Pottery Barn

It's freezing here in DC and we even have snow forecasted - I can't believe I didn't plan to go to Round Top this spring! If you're lucky enough to be headed that way, keep in mind that it's the only time Richard Taylor of Flat Earth Designs sells directly to the public. Here are some pics from when I visited his warehouse back in February - there will be small pieces as well as larger ones such as tables.

Richard is creating a lot more pieces in hypertufa - like the mirror above. It has the same great look and feel as concrete but is lighter.
Pattern can also be embedded into hypertufa. Apropos for Texas, there will be tables w/the Lone Star.
Table top yet to be mounted.
You may remember this incredible faux bois table from a recent post on Scotts.

The giant hypertufa balls are one of my favorites. Now there is a hypertufa garden seat.

A sneak peek into the process behind creating the garden seat.
There will also be lots of great troughs and pedestals.

Love the lion water fountain below.
Other news - Richard's Giant Clamshell is now available at Pottery Barn, as well as these really nice Shell Cachepots

New England Charm

FROM the archives - A post by Ann of Hill Country House reminded me to pick up the current issue of New England Home while I was in Cape Cod. It was full of great homes and this Connecticut house by Boston based designer Charles Spada caught my eye. The green in this library is so refreshing. The article mentioned that this green is the one chosen twenty years earlier when Spada first worked with these clients. (all photography by Bruce Buck, article by Stacy Kuntz)

To see more of this beautiful home, go here.
You can also view the digital issue by going to the New England Home site. I couldn't locate a web site for Charles Spada but Deborah of Boxwood Terrace provides a great overview of his work in a recent post.

Veranda April 2011 - Grand Slam Home Run!

Dara Caponigro and her staff hit it out of the park with the April issue of Veranda! This issue is a top-notch stand out, replete from cover-to-cover with beautifully executed and inspirational design. Above is the foyer of a Florida home designed by James Michael Howard in collaboration with homeowners Robert and Sallie Ann Hart. I just received my issue last night and have already spent an inordinate amount of time drinking in every detail of these faux bois walls and limed wood pieces. (photography by Miguel Flores-Vianna)
DC designer Frank Babb Randolph transformed a Georgetown home into a refined, light-filled space that showcases the paintings of owner Robert Rea, whose work is carried by Susan Calloway Fine Art. Perfectly placed splashes of color throughout the home create a beautiful balance of energy and calm. I love the styling of this table - gorgeous! (Photography by Max Kim-Bee, styling by Olga Naiman)

Designer Roberto Bergero's Parisian pied-a-terre masterfully showcases color blocking that is classic, balanced and vibrant all at the same time. Every image in this spread is stunning. (Photography by Rene Stoeltie)
Just one more - a classic library designed by Peggy Stone with formal furnishings that still create a lived in, comfortable feel. Notice the subtle and interesting detail in the drapes - she trimmed them in a slightly different shade of gray. (Photography by Peter Vitale)

I haven't been this excited about an issue of a shelter magazine in a long time.
Thank you, thank you Veranda!
