I have always admired the design of Sarah Bartholomew. It only takes a scroll throughout her Instagram and Pinterest accounts to see her obvious sense of tailored style and fabulously chic timeless taste. The fact that Mark D. Sikes counts her as a friend is another compliment of her beautiful sense of classically fresh design. Based in Nashville, Bartholomew uses my always favorite combination of blue and white. I love her pops of green throughout the photos below, whether in a yummy velvet or beautiful arrangement.

There is nothing better than green and blue together.
Fresh topiaries and fabulous romans.
Another view of this picturesque den.
Exactly how a bathroom should be.
More of my favorite pattern flanks the Barholomew entry. Looks so chic with the leopard runner.
Well balances with clean lines.
This look will never go out of style. Chic easy living.
I think dining rooms are a place where you can create an enclosed space of intimacy, refinement, and elegance. At least, that is what I think dining rooms should be. I recently scrolled through one of my favorite websites, Chairish, to search for some dining chair inspiration. The worst part is that I didn’t just see one set I liked. Lucky for me, there is a rising trend of mixing dining chairs. I am a big fan of an eclectic mix as long as the true flow and ambience remain cohesive.
Below I created a mood board that captures the inspiration for my ideal dining room. All products (with the exception of the Gracie wallpaper background) are from Chairish. Hope you find some inspiration below (as well as really fabulous deals)!

My mood board of inspiration. I think if this was my dining groom I wouldn’t want to move from it. I love the mix of the colorful velvet chairs with the texture of the white caning and neutral leather.

I am heading to California for a visit this week, but I will be back next week. If you have L.A. recommendations…. I am all ears!
Yours in good taste-

There is nothing more American than the joy of gathering together with family and friends to celebrate our nation’s independence day. There is a great sense of joy and pride when you watch fireworks, light sparklers, or simply gather together for a festive meal. Chances are many of you will sit down with an ‘all American” meal of BBQ, burgers, and hotdogs. I just have one request, do it in style. Let’s lose the plastic plates and paper tablecloth. After all, there is nothing more thrilling than having a burger on a fine piece of china. I promise, it will put a smile to your face.
I recently went on the search for my ideal Fourth of July tablescape and I was able to find everything I needed at NorthPark Center in Dallas. From sleek backyard chairs at Design Within Reach to beautiful china at Neiman Marcus to versatile bowls at Pirch, I found everything relevant to create a tablescape that will be effortless, memorable, and festively fun.
An eclectic mix of timeless designs and current trends- all found at NorthPark Center.
I love the navy buffalo check table runner from Williams Sonoma. Would look fabulous with any table setting, classic or contemporary. The navy napkins leave a solid contrast to the check pattern.
I think there is nothing more fabulous than serving a fresh burger on beautiful Juliska delft plates.
The glassware from Anthropologie is the perfect play on the all American navy hues.
This galvanized tray makes serving drinks a breeze. Lightweight, yet strong on style.
If you are traveling to a park to watch fireworks, Pirch has the ideal picnic basket to pack your wine, dips, and sparklers.
This Atleir flatware is very versatile and provides the perfect pop of texture to any place setting.
How fun are these watermelon candles?! An ideal summer addition to the kids’ table (and the adult table too)!

I am in love with the Tolix Marais Chairs for any backyard setting. It is the ultimate chair of low key chic.
