Southern Wannabe

Maybe because it's cold and dreary here in New York...or maybe it's just something about those genteel manners and traditions, a fondness of monograms or even the charming drawls (I want to say y'all and mean it*) but I really love the south.  What else could explain why I'm always pouring over magazines like Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles, where I found this amazing home.  Warm and infused with great style that's clearly based on tradition...just like all my romantic notions of the south.
 *but living in New York, I do get to say cool things like "Linsane" and "shmear", so there's that...

  9. One of my girlfriends went home to Alabama this week to visit family and she keeps texting me photos of beautiful houses and fantastic vintage treasures. Her home here in Seattle is the perfect example of how Southern sensibility and charm can thrive just about anywhere!
    PS- That kitchen! Perfect.

  14. I guess I have the best of both world - saying "ya'll" b/c I just can't help it and "linsanity" b/c I'm now a New Yorker!!!

    I'm loving Atlanta Homes and Garden too. Trying to keep the southern in my northern home....can be a bit of a challenge. So, always looking for inspiration!
