Suzanne Kasler


we are so excited to be in atlanta for the second leg of our mds stripes trunk shows this week. we left nashville this morning, and arrived in atlanta this evening.

suzanne kasler is a very good friend, for ages we have been trying to get to atlanta to visit her. well, we are here and we are staying with her at her beautiful home. suzanne’s home is really wonderful, of course i love it- it’s a big white house, and you know i have a thing for “big white houses”. take a tour here via architectural digest.

i really love suzanne’s style, and her work, but more importantly i just love her- she’s gracious, kind and generous. we are loving being her guests, we are already tucked in, super happy and super comfortable.

we are looking forward to starting our two day mds stripes trunk show at bungalow classic, and we are really excited about tomorrow night’s party. please come out and see our stripes and see suzanne’s new hickory chair furniture collection. we love a party, and especially love it when it’s a shared event with dear friends.

i spoke with carolyne roehm a few weeks ago about her new book, at home in the garden/ order here. carolyne has so many interests- fashion, travel, entertaining, parties, blue and white, and gardening to name a few, and she does all of them so well… now we can add photography and artists to this list.

carolyne told me she took about eighty percent of the photographs in her new book, i think this is amazing, the pictures are so beautiful, and then she told me that she has taken up water colors, and all the inspiring botanicals in her new book are by her. is there anything that carolyne can’t do? i don’t think so, and she does it all so beautifully!

carolyne inspires me so, i’m also a believer in doing many things and doing everything that you love, life is too short not to, and believe it or not, you can do it all and you can do it not only well, you can do it beautifully!!

here are a few carolyne’s watercolors- simply beautiful!

Greystone Mansion Show House 2015


The Maison de Luxe 2015 show house opened this past weekend at the fabled greystone mansion in beverly hills. i was so honored to participate in the luxe magazine sponsored event. the house is truly amazing and inspiring.

i was asked to do the grand halls of the house. I was inspired by the GREYSTONE gardens- they are magical, and of course i was inspired by the color of nature- blue and green. I wanted to bring this feeling inside the house and create a garden conservatory. I transformed the grand halls into what I’m calling “the garden halls.”

With the back drop of Schumacher Treillage wallpaper and framed Gracie panels, I mixed the mark d. sikes for Soane britain rattan collection (we just introduced the new lily sofa) with George smith Slipcovered furniture, skirted tables, gilt consoles, 18th century mirrors from therien, white plaster occasion tables and my signature blue and white. Potted orchids, ficus Ali, tulips, endless candles and garden sculptures add that extra layer than brings the outside inside.

there are so many to thank. these show houses are so much work and i couldn’t have done it without my amazing team (special thanks to becky, wisit, michael and doug) and without the help of so many vendors, in addition to the few mentioned above there was the help of merida, jf chen, hudson grace, jasper, rose tarlow, hollywood at home, mecox gardens, urban electric, vaughan designs, dennis and leen, samuel & sons, cowtan & tout, raoul textiles and stark.

i’d also like to thank all of my fellow designers, their rooms and work are so inspiring, truly, the best part about these types of events are meeting new people, the talent in this house is immense and diverse, you must come and see all the beautiful rooms.

there are no words to describe how wonderful this experience has been, i’m hoping these pictures i humbly took (please forgive some of the lighting), many of them i posted on instagram, will tell the story, a true garden story- welcome to “the garden halls.” enjoy!
