Hello! Before we begin last call to the winner for the gorgeous French Elements stockings, unfortunately if I do not hear from you today a new winner will be selected. The winner chosen was-

36 Bobbie Hathaway says: Oh my goodness, I love everything that is French. I adore the Christmas stockings, but then I like so many other things i.e. the pillow with the chateau. I have always been drawn to embroidered items. Tina, you have another winner.

 

Moving along…..

I haven’t done one of these in a long time……. it’s long overdue as I really enjoy highlighting the work of designers whose work I admire and of course sharing it with you!? And talk about a way to make up for the lapse…..this designers name? is one? worth remembering. Based in Greenwich, CT. I just love the style of Lee Ann Thornton.

To me, she seamlessly? fuses classic traditional interiors with a touch of fresh transitional which is so relevant for the way we live today. Not a single one of her interiors feels stuffy, off putting or off limits. Every one of her rooms is so warm, inviting while still retaining? a high level of elegance and sophistication.

It’s no wonder why over time I have found myself drawn to several of her spaces…and that her work has been featured in magazines like House Beautiful and Coastal Living.

As warm as it was beautiful…to me that combination is the hallmark of a capable and talented designer. Because anyone with good taste can create a museum like room but who wants to live in that? We need to live in and enjoy these rooms- and Lee Ann Thornton seems to? have this? down to a beautiful science. So lets take a look at some of her work…….

Good morning bright and beautiful Tina!

Your shares are most elegant and they take me to a place I’ll never, ever be able to obtain, but I can dream and draw some inspiration for my own home. But the best part is just visiting you, you kind and caring soul.

Have a relaxing day! Anita

Yes, yes, and yes again….it all resonates with my style! Classic design and use of color let’s the architectural elements and finer details come through. I particularly appreciate the use of lampshades over the kitchen islands and the wallpaper in various rooms which add warmth and texture without overwhelming. Very nice, Tina!

I love the room with the zebra coffee table/ottoman and the dark walls. I picture myself sitting there, reading a book and enjoying a cup of tea.

Elaine on

That lacquered pantry is perfect.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Tina, never heard of her but agree she does create beautiful spaces. My favorites are the kitchens, especially the one towards the top. I am getting great inspiration here for my own kitchen redo which has just gotten underway.

Your blog has been a great resource of ideas. Thank you!

Lovely choice, Tina. I think my favorite is the living room with the zebra striped bench – makes me want to give our living room a make over! Hope you are having a wonderful week! XOXO

Teresa Kamm on

Every room just makes my heart sing! I am so glad you have let us know about this talented designer. Her style is very in sync with what I love! Thanks so much Tina.

Patty Augeri on

I’ve been doing sand and sea colors for thirty years! All of these designs resonate with me. I especially like her use of pattern in otherwise bare, hard surfaced kitchens. Fabric lampshades, stool backs, covered benches and roman shades really warm up the room.
