I am inspired by many things...from the most sweet & delicate flower I pass on an afternoon stroll with my pup to Old New Orleans architecture or a beautiful oil painting. I absolutely adore old photographs & enjoy getting lost in imaginings of the stories of those subjects. I get excited about color pairings. I am inspired by plant life both vibrant & alive as well as wilting. My inspiration is also awakened by people. I love a truly unique character & immediately am excited by those distinct & individual spirits.
Who Is Your Style Icon?
I of course have had many style icons thoroughout the course of my life. Some have come & gone but the single icon which has never wavered is My Grandmother. Theresa Ratleff Barnes has a personal style which cannot be matched. Beyond having impeccable taste & fully believing in the power of accessorizing to perfection she has always carried herself with incredible poise & grace. She walks into a room & makes every head turn with no effort at all. This to me is the spirit of style. To look & feel like art effortlessly.
