Alys Beach Lucian Kitchen

Who else loves this simplistic and neutral kitchen at the Lucian in Alys Beach? The sandy wood tones and white venetian plaster wall finish provides the perfect backdrop for this custom Allison Wickey art piece ( allisonwickey.com )

Heading to Highpoint!

 Wheels up to Highpoint! The Lovelace buying team is heading to Spring Market in North Carolina this coming weekend and we can’t wait to shop for both of our locations! Susan, Bunny, Hope, and myself are always looking for new and exciting lines to add to our stores! We love spotting new trends and visiting our tried-and-true showroom vendors. Stay tuned!! I’ll be reporting back on what we found and what will be arriving at our stores in the upcoming months!

Books aren’t just for reading anymore…

Who says books have to be boring?!?! Not these! Styling with decorative books is my favorite. They can really make a huge impact in the right space and take up just enough room in bookshelves mixed with the right accessories. My favorite look right now is to group books by color when installing them in a space, like the first vendor has done. Also a cool look is stacked books (either horizontally or vertically) to spell or draw out an image or phrase.  Much more exciting that old fashioned library books, right!?!?

Take a look at some of my favorites!

Dining Before and After

We had an install this month for a sweet young couple with 2 little girls. They had lots of storm damage when Hurricane Michael hit Panama City last year, and were faced with the rebuilding process. They had water damage to much of the interior of their home, so we selected new wood floors, painted the entire interior, and changed some lighting fixtures. After the storm, we focused on making their living, dining room, and master bedroom a safe haven and gave them a new lease on getting their lives back to normal. It’s always rewarding to get a text after you leave from your client that said, “You guys have outdone yourselves, we love it all.” It’s the little things that make it all worthwhile!  Take a look at this before and after– quite the change for sure!

Hannah Lane Paintings

Y’all know I love supporting original artists, and I LOVE being able to use them in my design projects. This one is one of my favorites! She’s based out of Nashville, Tennessee and is as sweet as she is talented. On a recent trip to Nashville, I was able to stop by her home studio/gallery and pick out a small piece to take home to Florida with me, and it found the perfect home in my master bookshelf!

Hannah’s art is comprised of mixed media abstracts and she gathers inspiration and subject matter from her southern roots. Her art is a composition of pigmented papers layered with paint and pastels. She’s not scared of color, and most pieces reflect that! Here are some of my favorite collections of hers, all taken from her instagram.

I also own one of her more personal pieces– it’s a framed watercolor nude that hangs in my master bathroom. Hannah’s mother-in-law (and our close family friend, Beth Scott) passed away last year after a 28 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. A portion of each of Hannah’s 25  limited edition watercolor female figures was donated to the MS Society. That’s mine in the top right! Screen Shot 2019-03-07 at 11.27.54 AM

Coastal Elegance in Seagrove

Who else wants this as their master bedroom?!?! It’s the perfect mix of coastal elegance and subdued glam for the perfect Madison, Mississippi (yay, hometown!) clients. Their new construction home in Naturewalk is due to be completed in May.  I’m loving the soft, inviting textures and statement chandelier. Can’t wait to see it installed!
