GLORY OF GARDEN

As I look around this time of year, it becomes apparent some tidying up is of necessity in our gardens.  Spring Break starts tomorrow but when we return I'll be ready to get busy here!

Here are some of my favorite garden images.  Love each & every one for so many different reasons.

Via
Can you imagine what lays beyond?

Via
Clearly, a dirt road with grass median appeals to me.

Via
There isn't anything more beautiful than a green wall.

Via
Perfect to take a little break from your gardening...don't you think?

Via
This calms me in every fiber of my being.

I love water in a garden.  So lovely.


Hope you have a great day!


We'll talk soon.

MASTER ARTIST OF DETAIL: Malcolm James Kutner

As you know, I find great inspiration from other creative masters.  I had the pleasure of lunch with friends while in Los Angeles, one being, Malcolm James Kutner.  I'm consistently awestruck with the few true artists who keep the design world focused on our greatest gift, exquisite design.

 Malcolm, like a master painter, creates spaces with precision that is undeniable.  His work is clear, concise & thoughtful with every stroke of his brush.  As a designer that has much the same philosophy, I know that attention to detail is what makes his environments rich & layered while staying pure.  Design is an art form, one that requires constant problem solving & focus.  Malcolm's work will continue to inspire for years to come.

Here are a few images that show his exacting eye for detail & beauty.  You can see more on his website & blog here.

MY DESIGN FILES: Exteriors

Anyone who knows me well can ascertain my love of a white house.  There is no other for me.  I also love houses that have a direct connectedness to the outdoors.  We have a courtyard entrance to our house so I'm constantly saving imagery that I could use in that space & other parts of our grounds.

Here are some of my faves!

And, here's our courtyard.  We love it, so pretty to walk through daily to the front door.  One of the best ideas I've had yet was to tent our courtyard for a really, fun party.  Images below!

OH YEH...Mr. Cupp has new Curtains!!!

Do the party dance...do the party dance...David Cupp is the winner of the Ragland Hill Social/The Curtain Exchange of Memphis giveaway.  Congratulations David!!!!


How cute is he?

David chose the Beechwood solid dupioni silk, lined & inner-lined, handmade in the USA curtains from The Curtain Exchange of Memphis.

David was nice enough to share a little information with us about how he plans to use his beautiful new drapery.

Here goes:

RHS/TCEM:  Why did you enter the Ragland Hill Social/The Curtain Exchange of Memphis giveaway?

David:  I've recently purchased my very first house & all I had on my windows were traditional inexpensive wood blinds.  For years I've seen ads & read articles about The Curtain Exchange of Memphis.  The giveaway was my chance to finally get the curtains I've needed for a while.  I was so excited when I found out I had won!


RHS/TCEM:  Where do you plan to use your new curtains?

David:  I can't wait to use the new bronze curtains in my dining room.


RHS/TCEM:  How has it been working with The Curtain Exchange of Memphis staff?

David:  When I found out I won we got busy putting the plan together.  They've helped me select my hardware, decide on the 110" inch length which are exactly what I need for my dining room with 9' ft. ceilings.  We plan for the draperies to puddle on the floor a bit.  Tim has arranged for the installer to come to my house & has really taken the worry & stress out of the equation for me.


RHS/TCEM:  Do you have future projects planned for your new house?

David:  I'm using The Curtain Exchange of Memphis next in my living room & then onto the master bedroom.


RHS/TCEM:  Where is your new house?

David:  In the Highpoint Terrace neighborhood in Memphis.


RHS/TCEM:  What field of work are you in?

David:  I'm an Account Executive at The Fur Vault & a part-time model.


So there you have it...a happy winner of new beauties!  This has been such a blast & I hope to have another fab giveaway very soon.  Fingers crossed...stay tuned & I'll keep you posted!


We'll talk soon,


Gwen
