For anyone who thinks traditional furniture doesn’t belong in a contemporary house, think again. The sculptural silhouettes of these period pieces look clean and modern against the stark lines and dramatic scale of the room. Brava to the design integrity and taste of this Dallas hostess who generously opened her home to us last week (and let me take pictures). Interesting bit of trivia: The house was built in 1929 by Stanley Marcus, late president of Nieman Marcus founded by his father and aunt. This room was a 1970s addition by a later owner, I think (?)…

Thank you Dallas!!! What a big time we had in the Big D! Keep swiping to see this beautiful table done to the nines in #floradanica , #staffordshire and gorgeous embroidered linens. Those Dallas ladies sure know how to make a girl feel welcome. Was just there to speak to a lovely ladies’ group which shall not be named, and we had the best time! Then @smwexchange I signed books #thebeecottagestory and bookplates for the here-any-minute #californiacookingandsouthernstyle .

What a pretty table—and room!—set by my darlin’ talented friend a few weeks ago, with a lovely foraged centerpiece and her pretty silver and linen. The four candles create extra sparkle, too. Use your pretty things every day! That’s what they’re for, to create beauty, pleasure, and a sense of occasion, even when it’s just a few friends for dinner.

Re-post from @caroline.myss , as my family and I are thinking about and praying for loved ones facing critical medical challenges. It is true that all we have is now, any of us, at any moment. So on this morning I send you blessings and prayers for presence and healing.

An unfinished (and suckly) version of this was on my easel when I returned to the studio today, and i just said sod it and painted big shapes and colors and values and that was that. 20-30 minutes. It isn’t correct, or a finished piece or anything Id frame, but it was a reminder of an important lesson: simplify, squint, and go for it. .

Corny but beautiful with the light on the rocks, the pond reflections, and the little spray of daisies. Should i paint it, or too schmaltzy? Thanks for a great week @yellowpineranch @art_in_the_aspens_workshops .
