Barry Dixon

Virginia-based designer Barry Dixon is such a talent! 

I was thrilled when the Fortuny showroom in the D & D building in NYC used him to design the new Fortuny showroom.  Although his interiors share certain characteristics, they are always chock full of thoughtful details and surprises. 

Coastal Living featured a St. Barths cottage Dixon
designed and here are a few pics from their website.

Here are a few furniture designs ala Mr. Dixon....

He also created a fabric collection for Vervain one of my favorite fabric houses. 

Arteriors will feature 60 pieces of Dixon designed furnishings in 2011 which I can't wait to preview!

Love the lacquered ceiling in this conservatory!

Awww....I missed you too!
Have been on va-ca and working on new projects in sunny South Florida...which I will share with you later - right now they are in the construction phase so they aren't so pretty.....YET!

I did pick up these yummy Moroccan vintage stools for one Florida client at Circa Who in West Palm Beach....

Going the recover these babies and they will be GORG!

 Wanted to buy lots more stuff like this....

Pair of Hollywood Regency Fretwork End Tables

Check out their website here

Driving down from Connecticut was a blast and the kids are in tennis and surf camp so I have been working non-stop. 
(Hence the lack of posts lately)
Interestingly enough it is cooler here in Florida than most of the Northeast and Midwest for once!!

Anyhoo I discovered an artist that I must share.  I think she is really is a peek at some of her work.

Her name is Paige Gemmel and I'm totally in love...
Her use of color is divine and she includes lots of subject matter I adore like Chinoiserie, women in caftans, peacocks and blue and white porcelain. 

Lovely no?
