for goodness sake

so. much. content.

that has to be created - it's a lot sometimes to stay on top of it.  but i tell you, i'm trying  i want to write more.  please keep telling me how great i am at it.  maybe if you love on my ears enough i'll turn into a real girl blogger.

let's be honest.  right now, ig stories are the most fun - it's instant gratification.  i tried to stay on top of my game in mexico, but then i come home and found i've blown my wad completely and there are no pics left to share. 

but here's the good thing maybe.  it forces me to look for what's interesting.  to keep an extra eye peeled (yes, an extra eye - why not) for things that are pretty.  for color.  for angles and extras and spots and corners that may have missed my attention before.  so i think that's nice.

here's what's not #fakenews

i'm lucky that i have anna in my life to chronicle the most amazing moments.  i'm on a mission to start printing some of her photographs from our trips to frame - i started with a shot from our trip to peru.  framebridge has a new american hardwoods collection i thought i'd try.  i wouldn't usually go for a wood frame, but the vibe seemed to fit with the photo of the cacti, and it just feels sort of peruvian to me.  i'm so glad i did - the walnut is warm, but still modern and it makes me happy against the white wall. 




i framed my william mclure painting and i have to tell you, i feel extremely fancy and art-centric.  it's just who i am now.  i don't have a good pic but i do have a pic of one he just framed - lerwk!



i felt so moved by the experience that we're offering 6 of his collages custom framed on the site now, so you too can share this feeling of fance with me.


i framed my lucy auge paintings and they're real attractive - i really enjoy the red lacquer frame.  i did 4 but 3 seem to fit over the bed just fine, and one less blows tad's mind less, so it's a winning situation.  i'll make the bed up and take a real picture in due time, but for now - here's a start.


my framed guatemalan textile hangs back the back door and cheerfully says 'sup everytime i walk in the door.  i'm so glad i used it - most of my textile finds go in a stack or a pile and while there's strength in numbers, no one really gets to shine in this sort-of communist arrangement.  the guatemalan piece is living it's dream.  so inspired was i by this, that i framed the last two pieces i brought back and they're available on the site to enrich the life of 2 more artful sophisticates, like yourself.

we finished a really nice living room this week - here's a custom-built banquette in the corner smothered with pillows.


southern living named me one of the most stylish people in the south.  my mom would've plastered a tour bus with the article, so i feel pretty lucky.  she hated my red hair and surely she'd have wanted me to put on something decent, but i does what i can.

it's better than this right?

this morning we're flying to nashville to eat the foods.  rolf + daughters, husk and city house.  i brought some workout clothes purely on principle, but i doubt conditions will be favorable.  will report live on IG stories - over and out.

  4. I've been thinking about framing some fabric pieces through Framebridge, but I worried that they might get wrinkled in the mail and then look bad framed. Did you have to worry about that with yours? Any tips?

    And congrats on the Southern Living piece! :D

    1. framebridge takes really good care of the pieces -- they prepare them for framing, so i haven't had any issues with wrinkling, strings or creases!

    2. Sold! If it's good enough for (one of) the most stylish person(s) in the south, it's good enough for me. ;)

Real Raleigh, trends you see (or are steering yourself), decorating ideas and tidbits, rooms you have created.... we love it all.
