'Ello! (said in my Downton Abbey accent*)
Dillon's dad usually checks the mail when he gets home from work, and kindly ALWAYS forgets to give me my magazines that I literally almost die waiting for each month (House Beautiful and Elle Decor - posts on each coming soon!) I just glanced over my House Beautiful magazine and fell in love with yet another (I'm sure some of you have heard of her) fabulous designer: Lee Ann Thornton.
A little about her from her website: "In 2003 her design firm was launched in Greenwich
Connecticut, specializing in high-end residential projects. Lee Ann is
known for her detail oriented, luxurious and refined taste while
reflecting each client’s lifestyle and needs."
I literally clicked on her portfolio and gasped and died each time I clicked on to a new photo. I loooooove everything about her designs so much, that I would literally move in a house completely designed by her without even seeing it. SHE'S BRILLIANT. Let's all admire:
I DREAM of having a ladder in my office one day.
I love light blue in rooms and there is NO love like what I have for animal print. I want those pillows, stat.
Uhm, the wallpaper? And those chairs? I don't think I need to say anymore.
That light makes my heart beat abnormally fast. I'm in love.
This, to me, is perfection.
I think her work looks to be put together so effortlessly. Her use of patterns, textures, and colors all work together so well and I love how there is always something to look at and admire. This girl has pure talent.
Check her out if you haven't already - tons more pictures on her website to drool over. It was so hard not to post every damn one of them on here!
Until next time,
*I usually DVR all of my shows and catch up to them when I have free time. I watched about 45 minutes of Downton Abbey from last night.. and all I can say is: Bates is home!! Yippee!! Also that whole situation with James, the footman, and Mr. Barrow (sp?) is just plain weird. And is it just me, or do you not HATE when people spell it Downtown Abbey? Drives me nuts.
All pictures and design by Lee Ann Thornton.
