Lillian August Love

A magazine in my mailbox can really make my day. Traditional Home is one of my absolute favorites, and this month's issue doesn't disappoint with its full spread on designer Lillian August's North Carolina home. 

Lillian launched her career as a young mom, designing country-style quilt fabrics. Thirty years later, her name is a brand, with five stores, a fabric line at Fabricut and her own furniture line, which I absolutely LOVE. I'm not usually a fan of "new" furniture, but Lillian has created some beautiful copycats of Swedish antiques in her Antiquaire line for Hickory White. Here are a few of my favorites from the line:

Real Swedish antiques can cost several thousand dollars, but the Antiquaire collection is pretty affordable. She also has designed some amazing modern pieces too. Click here to see the whole line!

New EMYO painting (mirrors, too!)

Memphis artist Emily Ozier just delivered this pretty piece. Don't you love the depiction of the two little girls? 

"The Pair"

More paintings from Emily will be arriving in the next few days - stay tuned for photos! I also unpacked a new shipment of my favorite segmented mirrors - they're made by an Atlanta artisan with smokey, antiqued glass and little gold rosettes. 

Segmented Mirrors, $1295 at Antique Row. Custom sizes are available!
