A Little Bit of Both

It's fair to say that I'm a complete mix of both my parents.  I definitely love my diamonds, people with manners, and a tailored true Southern room, aka so my Mother.  But then there's the person who turns up the volume way too loud when a true great classic song comes on like Gimme Shelter, curses at times, and someone who will then let those manners go straight out the window, because I've learned life is too short.  Can we say Bob Hamilton's daughter?  I am someone who appreciates an unstructured room, a completely modern space, and that floral blue and white southern dining room.  

I chuckle a lot when I think about how different my parents are.  My close friends can't believe they got married, they're just so different.  They were destined for divorce.  But luckily for me those two completely different people got together, made me, and put all their different parts of themselves into me.  In relation to design, it's made me appreciate many different styles.  I may not want an entire room filled with just blue and white florals and patterns, but I admire it for it's beauty.  

So today, I would like to show appreciation for lots of different styles of design.  I adore each of these rooms for a different reason, and I appreciate what each designer has made me feel when I look at the space.  Can you guess which ones my Mother likes?  

 Never in my wildest dreams would I think I'd ever like pink or lavender.  Yet another example of never say never.

 This is the color of our bedroom and I have to say every time I walk in my bedroom I think to myself how much I love the color.

 For a space like  this , you have to think location.  Palm Springs and Miami for a vacation home, this is perfect.

 Oh zebra wood!!! note, by painting the trim the same color as the walls, it doesn't distract from the desk.

 A grey monochromatic  space  that doesn't feel cold, but yet, bright and inviting.  How cute would this be for a little boy's room?!  Thanks so much for reading!  I apologize for being gone so long.  I went back home for a bit while my Dad had surgery.  I intended to get so much work done, but y'all the guy doesn't have internet!  Needless to say this was a running joke with all his visitors that stayed at the house.  "What's your Dad's wifi password?" "he doesn't have internet!"  "what?"  Y'all his ipad works from "up there".  All he knows is his ipad works from the sky.  Dad, I love you, don't worry, I'll still visit even though you don't have internet.    Tucker
