Mad for Plaid…SMW Designs

 

I have been a follower of San Francisco designer Scot Meacham Wood for quite some time now. His blog The Adventures of Tartanscot is one of my faves. His use of plaid is outstanding, and I love plaids.

I love the way that he incorporates plaid into his designs. I recently stumbled upon these photos, and I was in awe. They are absolutely amazing. The way in which he mixes fabrics excites my senses.

Aren’t these photos absolutely gorgeous? These rooms have such a classic, masculine vibe.

If you are not following his blog, do so today. You are in for a treat.

Thanks to Dixie Delights for the plaid accessories. I know that Scot would love them too.

Shopping on Magazine Street…Streetcar Frame

 

I am in love with the newest decoupage frame I recently picked up from a Magazine Street fave, Hazelnut. It is the iconic New Orleans streetcar. If you’ve ever ridden down St. Charles Avenue on the streetcar, you know why it is such an important part of our way of life.

Tourists and natives alike can appreciate the icon of New Orleans.

The streetcar decoupage frame is a perfect frame for those wanting to cherish their times in the Big Easy. The frame is exclusive to Hazelnut and is available in both stores and online. I do not see it on the website, so you might do better calling Hazelnut directly at 504-891-2424 (Magazine Street) or 985.626.8900 (Mandeville).

They go fast, so get yours soon. You may have to special order one. I did!

Iconic Streetcar, y’all!

Tis the Season… A Weekend of Fun and Cheer!

 

WOW! It is hard to believe that it is already December 15th. The time certainly goes by fast when you are having lots of fun, and this weekend was no exception.

Friday started off with an after-school faculty party at the home of our head of school. I then hurried home to get to an adult dinner with friends from my home town. We love to share stories and some holiday cheer at the holidays.

This year, we dined at Apolline. It is near the house and always warm and inviting. The food is always prepared beautifully and tastes so delicious.

On Saturday, J & I headed out to the Preservation Resource Center’s Annual Garden District Holiday Home Tour. Though it was not my favorite this year, the houses were nice. I could only imagine living in some of that size. You are not allowed to snap photos inside the residences, so I snapped the facades of most.

We stopped by Commander’s Palace for a cocktail. It was such a glorious weather day that we sipped in the lush courtyard.

Cheers to Commander’s Palace.

We then beelined it to The Roosevelt Hotel which was again decorated to the nines. What gorgeous displays await you there. We could not miss the opportunity for a cocktail in the Sazerac Bar.

On Sunday, we took a long walk to the park stopping here and there along our Uptown route for some photos. You may recognize several of these homes from my past posts.
