Leaving Church Street.

Exterior 2Good Morning Lacquered Lifers. So sorry that I haven’t been here in over a week. Now I can finally tell you the reason. We have put our house on Church Street on the market. Not to worry, we’re not leaving Charleston, we’re just ready for the next project and the next adventure. Church Street has been absolutely wonderful, such a happy place for Mr. B, Hamish, Hugh and me – but we’re ready for the next chapter. While I am excited for the next move, I will definitely be sad to leave our house on Church Street. So today, just a few of my favorite photos by the extremely talented and lovely Francesco Lagnese from the Southern Living feature. Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Portraits, Interiors Living Room 2

Suite One: I’ll Take Two!

Suite OneGood Morning Lacquered Lifers. Thanks to Garden & Gun, I have just been introduced to the beautiful ceramics of Suite One Studio. Created by ceramicist Lindsay Emery out of North Carolina, these modern takes on traditional serving pieces have me swooning. You all know how I love a good piece of serve ware, (anything for entertaining!), and these are a wonderful change from many of the usual contemporary options. The Baroque Platter in Navy Brushstroke, seen above, takes it cues from antique silver platters, mimicking both the shape and the etchings along the edge. Keep an eye on the website, as many of the products are currently sold out – I definitely have my eye on a couple of these pieces and I am looking forward to her restocking. Below, a few more favorites. Suite One 5 Suite One 4 Suite One 2 Suite One 3

Thank You Southern Living!

IMG_2366Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! Southern Living Magazine’s March issue drops today, and guess what? That’s our front door! So thrilled that they decided to use our front door for their first issue of spring, with a feature on the doorways of Charleston. To be totally honest, I may be more excited that Hamish is on the cover of a magazine than I am that my house is on the cover of a magazine. What can I say, I’m a mom who loves her dogs. A big thank you to Southern Living for shooting our door, and for featuring it on the cover. Below, a few more of the Charleston doors in the feature, and the source info for our door. Door 4 Door 2 Door 3 DoorPaint Color // Door Knocker // Mail Slot // Lantern (similar)
