My Favorite Type Of Bunny

I can’t believe Easter is about to be upon us this weekend. While I know the holiday is not all about bunnies and eggs (John 3:16), I thought it would be fun today to show one of my favorite homes from my absolute favorite Bunny- Bunny Williams.

Bunny understands how to remain understated, timeless, and abundantly chic in the most classic and truly beautiful way. Her home is every bit elegant, and her garden is every bit enchanting.

Garden Dreams

Happy Monday! With a nice amount of rain in Dallas yesterday, I am admiring everyone’s green landscapes. I felt I hadn’t posted a beautiful garden in awhile, and I discovered the perfect one.

I simply adore this classic and timeless (built in 1743) Charleston home belonging to Cindy and Ben Lenhardt. My reason is very transparent. The grounds of the home are simply swoon worthy. Ben is a natural green thumb, and it shows with just the right amount of formality and natural grace that one can only hope for in landscaped grounds.

Honestly, I am just going to keep staring at these lovely photos. No words needed….

Dixon Rye

I love Atlanta. People often say it is like Dallas with more trees. They also have such a pulse on design. I mean think of all the greats there- Suzanne Kasler is based there, Phoebe Howard has a store there, plus Danielle Rollins is quite the tastemaking guru, Parker Kennedy Living resides there, and my favorite monogram queen, Laurie Byrne is there as well. It is also home to the always chic design of Bradley Odom.

Bradley recently opened a new home store in the area called Dixon Rye. He has such an eye for collected, chicly effortless, and dimensional design. There is something so refreshing about his style. It is like a breath of fresh air with a hint of something woodsy. Maybe it is just his ability to combine texture with a clean palette and classic lines. Whatever it is, it surely makes Dixon Rye a place I am desperately ready to frequent.

I had the opportunity to send him a few questions about Dixon Rye. Feast yourself on the beautiful images of his store and his wonderful vision for making Dixon Rye a design destination.

How would you describe your personal design aesthetic?

Dark and moody—masculine colors with over the top texture. At Dixon Rye we talk a lot about identifying the hero of a room and letting it be a hero. For me personally, the hero is usually something leather or a cool architectural find.

What hopes do you have for Dixon Rye?

I always say that first and foremost we are a creative brand. We are a retail shop and we offer design services but a creative process informs every decision we make. It’s an atmosphere where lasting relationships are formed, consumers are educated about where things are made. It is always a question of how products are made, who made them and why that matters. We pay special attention to all details from the music we play, the packaging, and of course, the friendly experts you engage with. We’ll continue to grow our DR Collection and our online presence.

What are your design pet peeves?

Not considering scale and volume of a space or an individual piece, especially lamps! We like to ensure that lamps are the appropriate size in relationship to the table and room. Sounds simple but it’s something I notice and it stands out like a sore thumb to me.

Best advice you ever received about design/decor?

One of my former professors once said, “A good idea is just that, a good idea, until you actually spend time working out the details and ensuring it actually works.”

Who inspires you?

I love the work of Billy Baldwin. He was one of the greats that never missed an opportunity to add an interesting detail to an otherwise basic piece of furniture—and we’re both Sagittarius. Recently, I’ve been inspired by Meyer-Davis. Their ability to mix materials is awe-inspiring.

What is on your nightstand?

Books! Sounds so expected, but I love being surrounded by inspiration. I also have a favorite piece of art that my Mom gifted me which leans on the wall off of my nightstand, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say my iPhone.

SOUTHERN CHIC REALNESS!

English Roses & French Rose

Hello friends! I am back from my trip across the pond. Hopefully you followed along on instagram stories. If not, I rounded up some fun photos from the trip. I visited London and Paris this week. Both cities I have explored previously, but it was fun to tackle the city by foot and with great enthusiasm for good food and even better shopping.

I have a series of great posts lined up in the coming weeks. Until then, enjoy these photos, get inspired, and let me share some of our itinerary with you!

Cheers, Au Revoir, and see you tomorrow! xxoo

A follower of mine, Rebecca Lindrew, recommended visiting Chatelles shoes. One try on the foot, and I am obsessed. In case you wanted to know, I bought the black. Well, I also bought some leopard slippers too….

The Round Table

I love a round dining table. It is intimate for group conversation, while allowing for an abundant arrangement to be the focal point. My friend has a round dining table that is in need of some chairs. It is to this point that it is driving her husband crazy. A great big table, and nowhere to sit! I figured I would give her some sources of “chair-spiration” and also inspire all of you with some beautiful round tables. Because a round table discussion is the most important kind of talk.
