The Lexingtonienne



Imagine the scene: you come home to find a brand new Elle Decor waiting for you in your mailbox. (Joy.) And when you open it, everything in it is tailored for you. No, not as in, you really like everything you see. I mean, it’s all been written just for YOU, [insert your name here]!

That’s kind of what happened to me yesterday afternoon. In response to my “help-me-with-my-master-bedroom-before-I-jump-off-a-cliff” post, which — by the way — got a lot of wonderful and very helpful responses from my kind readers which I very much appreciate, my dear friend Sally B. sent me an email with THESE attached:

Sally was not amused by my “paint / curtains / bedspread / DONE” attitude – haha. And I have to say, I don’t blame her. Sally B. is a profesh, you guys.

Receiving these design pages was truly like someone had written an issue of Elle Decor and dedicated it solely to me. And I love Sally B.’s ideas — she has always had such an eye, even when we were teenagers. I love the bedskirt idea, the plates, the high-gloss paint suggestion, the Suzani bolster, the bamboo tables — I love it all! I have always said that if I could write Sally B. a blank check and hand my entire house over to her, I would do it in a heartbeat. Now cue Gwen Stefani’s “If I Were a Rich Girl.”  😉

Seriously though — THANK YOU, Sal, for these fabulous suggestions! These give me so much to think about and be inspired by. I always see these design pages on design blogs and in magazines, and having some made for me is a total treat in itself!


P.S. Happy Birthday, Baby Girl Baldinger!!! My friends Jeff & Devon are having their baby today, and all three are in my happiest thoughts. Congratulations and much love to you all!
