MY DAD INSPIRED ME TO CREATE. I LEARNED TO APPRECIATE AND RESPECT THE BALANCE AND SYMMETRY FOUND IN ALL THINGS.

INSPIRED BY MY SOUTHERN ROOTS, I HAVE A LOVE FOR ENTERTAINING AND APPRECIATION FOR BEAUTY. MY INTERIOR DESIGN BACKGROUND COMES INTO PLAY WITH MY UNIQUE  PRESENTATION AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL,CREATIVITY,AND A SAVY STYLE. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE OF ARCHITECTURE,FURNITURE,LANDSCAPE, ART, AND TRAVEL.

MY FAVORITE THINGS

Pineapple Finials-
 I love the traditional welcoming icon of pineapples in any form, but especially

GARDEN STATUARY


PINEAPPLE FINIALS


I LOVE THE TRADITIONAL WELCOMING ICON OF PINEAPPLES IN ANY FORM,BUT ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE AS WELL DONE AS THESE FINIALS. EACH FEATURES BEAUTIFUL WEATHERING (MEDIUM TO DARK) WITH SOME MOSS. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO SOURCE THREE IDENTICAL PAIRS IN SOUTH OF FRANCE AND FROM A COUNTRY ESTATE IN ENGLAND. PERFECT FLANKING A DOORWAY OR ATOP GATE PIERS AT THE ENTRANCE TO YOUR DRIVEWAY OR GARDEN. MINOR CHIPPING TO SOME OF THE PINEAPPLES DOES NOT IMPAIR THEIR BEAUTY OR SERVICEABILITY.

PLANTERS- WILLY GUHL


A  UNUSUAL LARGE PAIR OF ETERNIT PLANTERS ATTRIBUTED TO WILLY GUHL. MID 20TH CENTURY.THE PRIMARY COLOR IS A STONE WHITE WITH A WONDERFUL PATINA FROM USE AND AGE THROUGHOUT AND LOTS OF LITTLE MOSSY BITS AS WELL. THESE PLANTERS ARE ATTRIBUTED TO SWISS NEO-FUNCTIONALIST WILLY GUHL (1915-2004) FOR ETERNIT DURING THE 1950'S,SWITZERLAND. THE PLANTERS ARE CONSTRUCTED OF ETERNIT (A DURABLE AND LIGHT -WEIGHT FIBER CEMENT) WHICH MAKES IT WEATHER-RESISTANT SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PLACE IT OUTDOORS IN ANY CLIMATE. THESE WOULD BE ESPECIALLY LOVELY FLANKING A PATIO OR GARDEN ENTRANCE OR I  LIKE TO USE THEM INSIDE ON A DINING ROOM TABLE OR COFFEE TABLE. GORGEOUS PIECES!
