A True Southern Gent

A True Southern Gent

… to Barry Dixon who said in an interview for Flower Magazine, “There hasn’t been a civilization in all of history that doesn’t celebrate flowers and look to nature for inspiration.”  Though he grew up in the Far East and South Africa, Barry’s a Southern gentleman at heart.  His interiors exude elegance and beauty, yet remain relevant and true to the clients who commission them.  Who wouldn’t want to come home to such loveliness?

    Every one needs a “flower budget” – just a few to add a touch of grace to any home.
    I shall never tire of flowers or lovely scented candles 🙂

    Lovely arrangements! Interesting quote…but of course, if you think about it, it just makes perfect sense! Flowers really are the one consistent decor item in time and taste through the centuries!

    Flowers make any room happy, even happier if they are lovely scented ones!
