Think about this guy, Darryl Carter, not too long ago when his days were filled with studying for the LSAT and reading over legal documents.
Now, flashforward to today--he is launching his new line with Urban Electric and he recently designed furniture for Thomasville. Not-too-shabby for this lawyer turned decorator.
I am tickled to be invited to meet this master of neutrals, among other things.
I have yet to read his book, but I am looking forward to snagging one so I can bend his ear for a minute. There is really nothing not beautiful I have seen from his rooms. He seems to collect like Suzanne Kasler (I adore how he styles his tableware), and has a love of white and mixing like Vicente Wolf. Yet I find him warm and classical and soft and strong at the same time. (He kinda looks that way, too)
I am excited to actually have some events I need to "dress" for, you know? My boys being four and two, I have lived in Target tops and yoga pants for years (but I still had to wear some cute Converse and funky earrings with them--my mom always preached to us that "Life is not a dress rehearsal." That has stuck with me--even in the baby fog years)
So I've got a few fun events coming up this fall and winter...
Darryl Carter at Urban Electric, big Arteriors sample sale, SCAD students' art at West Elm (Savannah College of Art & Design), Sherry Hart giving a little lesson on styling at the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Christmas House, The Lavish Conference, and Better Homes & Gardens coming to shoot! Aside from marrying Chris and birthing these youngins', this is about the best year of my life.
I want to work with what I already have, but I do want a few fun things:
a sequins tank
some dark boot cut jeans
love this ruffled military coat (cute with jeans or a pencil skirt and tall boots)
Ann Taylor Loft
And this heather gray jacket
With these pants...
a plan white tank
And these amazing necklace..
Can you picture it with some heels?
And a few more things....
Would love this with jeans
and these babies...
with some long, cotton socks
And a velvet blazer
almost done...look at these!
And lastly, check out this outfit from Paris from South of Market's Blog
How great is her outfit!!?? Can I wear this at 37? Maybe if the skirt was a little longer?
