Pretty Patina

I’m so excited to bring you my very first blog post. As my clients know, my focus and my passion is about Southern grace and heritage mixed with modern luxury.

My blog will focus on some of my favorite things and the inspirations behind my designs. On Mondays, I’ll write about my inspirations found in travel, art, and fashion and later in the week my blog will focus on design and what I think is influencing interiors today.

Right now I’m very interested in patina and intrigued by its history and elegance. Patina forms on metals and stone and can be applied to materials to give mirrors, copper, and other metals an antiquated look.

Imagine the history behind a mirror like this and the story that could be told about it.

Putting this mirror in a modern living space would give the perfect opportunity to tell a great story and adds a statement of historical significance (or antique design) to a sophisticated room.

A wall like this builds a foundation to an entire home of wonderful stories, where antiques have been paired with luxurious modern furniture, with the result being a beautifully edited interior with distinctive character. Lovely.

Warmly,
