A Day Late

O.K. I was all excited about my post for today until I saw Shelter yesterday. Yep, same pictures!! What can I say? Julie has great taste. I decided to go ahead with my post for several reasons:
1. It was all ready to go and I was at a swim meet last night and didn't have time to throw anything else together. If your kids swim, I don't need to say any more. If your kids don't swim, consider yourself lucky.
2. To me this is more than just a bunch of design, fashion etc. It is also a diary of my life and what I liked at the time. Maybe not a very good diary, but it is all I have for now.

3. I try to delete pictures after I have downloaded them to my blog so I don't use up all my memory. Or something like that. I love these pictures and want a record of them, so here I go. If you already saw Julie's post, you don't have to keep reading although what would it hurt? If you haven't seen it, you're in for a treat!

The New York apartment of Lindsey Harper

Can you tell from her style where she is from?

Does her decorating remind you of anyone?

all pictures from My Home Ideas

I love these rooms and they have a very Southern feel to me. It reminds me a lot of Ruthie Somers which is a very big complement in my book. Sure enough, Lindsey is from Cartersville, GA. Lindsey is starting her own design firm and designing a line of furniture, busy girl! More info here. Can't wait to see more of her work!

Update: I just received an e-mail from Lindsey Harper,( aren't Southern girls just the best?!), and she included her website. You must check it out here!!! You will love all her work but I must say the Palm Beach house is my favorite.

Back tomorrow with something fresh and new...I hope!!


  1. oh my gosh, the room in that first photo!! Her sofa reminds me of Nick Olson's. And of course I NEED those blue Chippendale chairs. She reminds me of Ruthie Sommers, too. Don't you just love the SOuth?! I want to see more!!

  2. So pretty! I didn't see Julie's post yesterday so this is new to me! Just amazing. I want to move in!

  3. I love that blue sofa! Drool! I love seeing that Southern touch since it reminds me of my home in N.C. :-) Don't worry if someone else has already covered it--after all, every perspective is unique (and I haven't discovered Shelter yet, so it was def. new to me)!

  4. I hadn't seen this, I am glad you posted it!
