Campaign for a Campaign

Campaign chests seem to be having a moment right now.  Is it just me?   I absolutely love the look.  Stained or painted, the campaign style would work with any design.   And the Brass hardware takes it to the next level of chic!  Check out all the colors I found:

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone had a great three day weekend.  I love Memorial Day.  But I think that we should take time to appreciate the people who fight for this country all 365 days of the year.  An especially huge thank you goes out to those Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom… Thank you!

happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone has a fabulous Memorial Day weekend.  I’m headed to South Carolina for another wedding – should be fun!  I’m so excited about the three day weekend.

I’m loving the bright colors and fullness of the drapes in these pictures, especially the green ones by Ruthie Sommers.

hand painted walls

Hand painted wallpaper is one of the most special ways to decorate a home.  We do not get to use hand painted wallpaper in our client’s homes very often, but when we do it’s very exciting and always turns out absolutely gorgeous.  I love the look, but it is usually a little too formal for my taste… But it doesn’t always have to be formal.  You will see in these pictures that some of these rooms maintain a casual, relaxed look despite the expensive/unique wall treatments.

Absolutely love this hand painted fish wallpaper.  Talk about casual!  Such a unique take on hand painted wallpaper.  It would be so pretty in a lake house.

Layered Rugs

Layering rugs is such a chic, practical way to cover a floor with a little cushion without splurging on a huge/expensive/antique rug.  Antique rugs are soooo pretty and sooo special but let’s face it – they cost a fortune.  So why not layer a smaller expensive/antique rug on top of an inexpensive seagrass/sisal rug?  A big 9 x 12 antique rug can cost thousands and thousands of dollars; a smaller 4 x 6 / 5 x 7 / 6 x 9 antique rugs can cost just hundreds and hundreds of dollars.  Why not save your money but get the same look?  Here are some great inspiration looks:

Monograms… yay or nay?

I’m not a big fan of monograms.  I especially don’t like when people put a sticker monogram on their car – why is that necessary?  And on your iPhone?  Is that so nobody steals your phone?

I think monograms should be used sparingly.  My bath towels and guest towels have my monogram on them.  And I think I have one or two pieces of jewelry with my monogram.  That is all.  There is no reason to put your monogram on every single pillow and towel in your house.

Don’t get me wrong, monograms can be pretty – but they can also be tacky.  So before you go put your monogram on everything you own, draw the line somewhere.  Here are some pictures of what I think are good uses of monograms…

Highlights from a busy week

This week has been super busy at Mallory Mathison Inc., as usual.   “Design ADAC” has been going on this week and I was lucky enough to attend two different presentations by some of my favorite designers.  On Wednesday, I saw Miles Redd for the fourth time in my life.  I’ll never get tired of hearing him speak and seeing his work.  Y’all are already fully aware of my love and appreciation of Miles and his designs so we’ll focus on some other designers for once…

This morning (Thursday morning), I got to hear Mary McDonald and Martyn Lawrence Bullard talk about “Building Your Brand as an Interior Designer”.  It was one of the most entertaining presentations I’ve been to at ADAC.  If you’re not familiar with the Bravo show Million Dollar Decorators, you’re really missing out.  Anyway, Mary and Martyn were hilarious and down to earth.  I loved every minute of seeing them.

MARY MCDONALD

A look at some of the fabrics from Mary McDonald’s latest collection for Schumacher.  I would love to see some of them in my apartment. What do y’all think?  So chic!

Naturally, the green colorways are my favorite :)

Photos of the Day: Black and White

It’s Monday again!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Mine was not long enough, as usual.  How about a few black and white vignettes to get your Monday off right?
