If I had to choose two publications which portrayed
the essence of personal my style, there would be two.
Like many design enthusiasts, I love catalogs and
magazines and coffee table books, and well...
anything about design!
I have my favorites, that's for sure.
One is a popular magazine, and I'm sure will come
as no surprise to anyone...
The other is not so much a magazine, but a catalog.
Interesting, I save my Ballard catalogs just as I do
my Southern Living magazines.
These two publications are both different in elements
of style, yet have similar characteristics at the same time.
The one characteristic they have in common is...
With Southern Living.... my love of Traditional style
is portrayed in true "Southern" style.
Classic Southern colors, antiques, elegance and
warm and inviting style.
The reason I am such a Ballard fan is its
unique design features ....
When you see something that is distinctly Ballard...
you know it immediately.
To me, Ballard encompasses a touch of Traditional but
with an acknowledgment to Urban Flair.
So is there a particular magazine or catalog that
embodies your style?
I'd love to hear what it is and why.
Big changes happened last week in The Grits House.
I have taken pictures of what it looks like now.
"OMG" is the best way to describe it.
All the furniture pushed to the center, every surface
covered with something....
(why did I have the WHOLE house painted
instead of one room at a time? aaagh)
But I am loving it so far and can't wait to share it
with you in the coming days.
Have a beautiful and inspiring week everyone!
