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

Crazy for Capri Blue Candles

Who else loves the scent of Capri Blue’s Volcano candles?!?! It’s the perfect year-round scent, and although I’m still burning my Nest Holiday Candle–don’t judge– Volcano is one I never tire of. Even better news!?!? It now comes various beauty products so you can smell like volcano ALL the time.  The line now has soaps, perfume, handwash, and body scrub.

 

And how can you forget their classic candles? Their signature deep royal jar may not go with every decor, but they’ve developed lots of other aesthetically-pleasing colorways to fit seamlessly into any home. My personal favorite is the teal watercolor jar– perfect for a coastal touch!

  

 

Emerald Coast inspired table

This table speaks for itself…. it’s  made of Volcanic lava, giving it the dynamic and natural beauty and strength of its namesake. It is utterly weatherproof, and able to withstand extreme heat and cold, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor with handsome sophistication. And when I tell you that pictures don’t do it justice– it’s even more stunning in person. It is available in round and rectangular tables, as well as cocktail and console table sizes. The handcrafted stone is baked at several hundred degrees to diamond-like solidity. This emerald coast- inspired colorway evokes turquoise blues, liquid azure hues, and a sense of dappled light glinting off ocean waves… the perfect and durable table to be used inside or out!

Watercolor, Florida Before and After

I love a good before and after, but Y’ALL.. this one takes the cake! Imagine a house full of primary colors including bold reds and metallic golds. Oh, and pea green painted walls– yep! My latest project was a vacation home in Watercolor, Florida for a single man who wanted the perfect vacation spot for his family to enjoy. Oh, AND did I mention the vast  majority of  it was done in 4 weeks!?!!? That’s right– a full remodel in one month; from cabinets to countertops, all lighting and a fresh coat of paint. Needless to say,  I was on super-speed the entire month of April to get this one done!  It’s been such a fun project with such an amazing transformation– one of my favorites to date that I enjoyed working on with Lovelace Interiors designer, Brooks Logan.  Enjoy these before and afters!

SpotLIGHT on Lighting

Lighting is my FAVORITE! Well that and tile 🙂 We spotted lots of lighting in Highpoint from wood bead fixtures to cut crystal accents to cascading tiered fixtures that were over 10′ tall! Metals are still mixed and glass elements are BIG! Loving these fixtures from  the Currey and Co., Dovetail, and John Richard showrooms!

Spring Highpoint Trends, Vol. 3- Boho Pillows

Boho-inspired pillows were everywhere and go great with trend number 2- paper art! The texture, fringe, and deep colors were seen throughout market as shown on sofas and pillow displays.  Natural earth tones set the mood for textile inspired and heavily textured pillows. The colors were rich and blended with naturals to give an urban and ethnic feel. We like mixing these with solids to make a statement on any sofa, chair, or bed. Some of our favorites were from Callisto Home, Villa, Loloi, and V. Rugs and Home.
