The Latest Buzz

So Long, Southern Accents…

We just received our September/October  issue of Southern Accents and after spending some time perusing the beautiful interiors, added it to the growing pile of “final issues” along with our last House & Garden, Domino, Blueprint and Country Home.  With the closing of yet another shelter magazine, especially one that had a such unique voice and point of view, our printed monthly sources of inspiration are dwindling.

Thankfully, Time Inc. will continue Southern Accents online so we can still look forward to reading the Miss Gracious Living blog, browsing articles on architecture and design, and collecting ideas for table settings and entertaining.  For 32 years, Southern Accents brought us the best in southern lifestyle, homes and gardens so we hope to have 32 more…  In this last issue, don’t miss Amelia Handegan‘s gorgeous plantation-style house in Charleston and a delightful feature on dahlias!

Here Comes the Sun

Since it has rained thirteen out of the past fifteen days here in the Northeast, we thought we would write about our favorite cheery yellow accents.  You can’t help but feel uplifted when you enter a bright yellow room or surround yourself with sunny citron prints.  We hope these images bring a little joy to your rainy day!

Pretty in Pink

With all the azaleas and peonies blooming in our gardens this week, we can’t help but feeling “in the pink”.  From raspberry to fuchsia, cerise to salmon, pink can be whimsical and charming or vivacious and vibrant.  While we think of pink as the color of spring, these pretty accents are our favorites year-around.
