Shouldn't every great home have a name? What would you name this one? I'm thinking of naming my own house, which was built in 1923 in the Greek Revival style, "Bee Cottage." I believe I will have a little plaque made and install it on the brick wall next to my back door. Source: Repinnned from Pinterest/Paloma Conteras.

I want a green and white striped skirt just like this. It seems perfect to me for summer days and nights. This skirt design is a great example of something done simply and well. No frills, no bells and whistles, nothing to gum up the works. Just a great material, a great design in a great colorway.

This is one of my all-time favorite houses....a small, sweet classic. I love the greenery over the pediment entry, the columns, the perfect green shutters and the beautiful roof line. Then there's the broad walk leading to the front door, floor-to-ceiling windows and the expanse of a lush green lawn. I'd take this over some grand manse any day. Source: Traditional Home

I received another email recently from Jacqueline Terrebonne, the design projects editor at Architectural Digest. She advised that a design project by my client Joy Tribout is still being considered for publication and reminded me that it is a very, very long process. Don't we know it! At the end of the day (or year!) when they finally look at Joy's work alongside the competition, I believe she will have a better than average chance of making it in the magazine. Just look at this beautiful example of Joy's talent for creating a mood. Does it get any better?
