Straight from the vault...


A little Southern Charm to put you in good spirits. This is the New Orleans home of decorator Vesta Fort featured in May '06 Domino issue. A place so full of color, texture and life...if this is the Southern way then I'm packing my bags right now. An infatuation I couldn't hold in the vault of inspiration any longer...in hopes that only you feel the same way.


A sitting room that actually welcomes visitors to take a seat, mixed with period antiques and affordable pieces...


In my dreams this how I envision a porch to be, the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor...


The striped walls make such a bold statement...and if you try to envision the kitchen without it, well then it's not right!


Looking at this image, I want nothing more in life, than to have such lush pink draperies flanking my windows and doorways in my Master Bedroom...


Elsie de Wolfe inspired, this Dressing Room/Office is covered in, none other than, Home Depot lattice...


Fit for a little king, this boy's room blends so well all the various prints: Cowboy, Zebra, and Mod like duvet from Jonathan Adler...

I think This is the real southern touch . it looks like the kind of decoration we use it in the south of France . I think it is the southern international spirit !!
I love it

Wow--I missed this spread in Domino. I love her take on southern style. She reminds me a bit like fellow southerner, John Oetgen in her use of color and creativity. Great post!

Even though it's not exactly my style, I LOVED this spread when I saw it in Domino. It's so perfectly southern!

I love that you shared the whole home, and great commentary by the way. That yellow in the living room is still so lovely to me.

(plus thanks for your generosity with the links :)
