“It’s So Fabulous!” PHOTOGRAPH of the Week: I found this week’s photo while perusing a post from one of my favorite design bloggers, Heather Clawson, of Habitually Chic. The picture is of Patricia Herrera (daughter of Carolina Herrera) set in the background of an amazing toile room. Her dress is nothing short of stunning, and it reminds me of one of my very favorite design choices… blue-and-white pottery! I generally consider blue-and-white pottery as a “neutral”, of sorts, since it blends so fabulously with countless other design elements.

Isn't she gorgeous in every way!?

“It’s So Fabulous!”  KNOTTING HILL INTERIORS GIFT IDEA of the Week: If you would like to add a “colorful neutral” to your home, or give it as a gift to someone else, consider investing in some blue-and-white pottery! It is a classic decorating component that never goes out of style. Take a look at a few of the options available for sale at Knotting Hill Interiors.

“It’s So Fabulous!” FAMOUS DESIGN HOME of the Week: If you have ever watched the HBO television series, True Blood, you will recognize the room pictured below, as well as the characters, Bill Compton and Queen Sophie Anne.

  • I have a friend that spends 6 months out of the year in China. He has brought over several trunk loads of blue and white Chinese pottery. It’s supposed to be ancient, but it’s almost impossible to tell the copies from the real thing. You’d probably enjoy looking at it sometime…:-)

  • Loved all of the Chritsmas tips and pictures. The 5 R’s were great and helpful in my plan to declutter and simplify. Started with the closets and old Christmas decorations and plan to move on to the dining room!

    Simplify and declutter are two words that need to be in my vocabulary this year! It is hard to believe I have been in this house for twenty years already. Just when you think it is all done, I feel like it’s time to start all over again! I would like to simplify with neutrals in every room and decorate with timeless pieces. Then insert pops of color with pieces that make me happy. That’s the plan at least, although it may take 20 more years! Love the blog…thanks!

  • AS I approach the big 50 this year, my goal is to de-clutter and go to a more simple life-style. My son is now in collage and doesn’t live at home any longer. My home is just to full of items that I no longer need. My home has been cluttered and kid friendly for 24 years. Now, I think it’s time to loose the stuff and upgrade to adult-hood. lol I love to read your bolg and the photo’s great.
