Blue and White Monday: Art


These two new amazing Christina Baker paintings were photographed hanging on a wall in Christina's studio before they were delivered recently to Bennet Galleries.  How I'd love to visit Christina's studio to see where all the magic takes place!  I can see that it's bright, clean, minimal, and sophisticated. As her paintings are always spectacular, it follows that her work space has to be gorgeous and inspirational.

Star Dust

Not blue and white, but I love this one, don't you? I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to share it.  Star Dust is another new painting available at Bennet Galleries.

I'm thinking about art studios at the moment because my daughter (an artist) and I will be moving to a new house in the next few months, and will use one of the bedrooms as an office/studio. The granny-chic style studio above, designed by Schuyler Samperton for a darling Los Angeles cottage, is adorable. I'd like it even without the dog : ).


Blue and White Monday: Cynthia Collins Interiors


I haven't seen a photo of a room in quite awhile that has captured my attention like the one above.  The straight lines and right angles the chairs and the upholstery create, along with the unframed, amazing Mallory Page painting, are the perfect foil to the tone on tone pattern of David Hicks', The Vase, wallpaper. The amount of color the Rose Famille infuses is perfect.  This exquisitely designed room is the work of Cynthia Collins, one of my favorite interior designers. What's more, she's a fellow Dallasite.  I know you'll enjoy the gorgeous images of her work I'm sharing below.  Check out her site for lots more.


New Christina Baker Paintings available at Elliott Fouts Gallery


Abbey Theater

Elliott Fouts Gallery, in Sacramento, has recently received new paintings by one of my very favorite artists, Christina Baker.  How I wish Dallas were closer!  Christina will be there Saturday night, October 8th, from 6-9 pm.  I would love getting to go hang out with her and see her breathtaking new paintings in person.  If you're in the Sacramento area, don't miss the opportunity to meet one of the loveliest, most gracious ladies I've had the good fortune to know.  Getting to see Christina's work in person is such an incredible treat.

Seaside Resort

Passage East

Tibetan Garden Triptych

I love pinks with browns.  This triptych is the same size as the one Christina did for my One Room Challenge entry a couple of years ago. It really commands the space, and is an absolute joy to behold everyday.  See it here.

I've shared only four of more that are available. They're purchasable directly from the site and can be shipped anywhere. See others here.


Dallas Home: Subtly Sophisticated Mix of Traditional and Modern


This spectacular vignette is from the house I mentioned a couple of weeks ago.  I'd been devouring my latest Luxe issue, and noticed a mirror just like mine in a  feature on a gorgeous Dallas house.  You can see more of the feature, and read about it here
