Eye Q

 

 

Hello! I live in Atlanta, GA with my handsome, funny husband and two beautiful, talented daughters. We’re well watched by our very best friends: one high-jumping Brittany, one super-sized Great Pyrenese mix, and vigilent herder Scout.   

 

This blog was born to put order to my voracious curiosity. My obsessions are many: handsome interiors, interesting art, age-worn antiques, spankin’ new products, woven and printed textiles, books that smell of fresh ink or musty neglect, masterfully-crafted embellishment, anything a tad quirky, and ephemera too numerous to list. 

 

I adore a striking, well-designed home. But, I believe the people { and even animals! } living there are far more vibrant, valuable, and interesting. And while I have been known to contemplate on a particular shade of brown or an especially lovely chair for hour-upon-hour { okay, let's say days-upon-days }, those things are a backdrop for the real beauty of an interior — its inhabitants living life to the fullest. In our household, we have great fun and a good bit of chaos in a setting that is, just sometimes, visually pleasing. 

 

I’d love to hear from you about the eye-catching view in your world!

An interior is the natural projection of the soul.  COCO CHANEL

A person with real flair is a gambler at heart.  BILLY BALDWIN

Make your home as comfortable and attractive as possible and then get on with living. There's more to life than decorating.  ALBERT HADLEY

... you'll do your best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious — the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly... PH 4:8
