Designer to Watch: William McClure

Southern interior designer William McClure recently published handsome photos of his Birmingham, Alabama home and I thought you’d enjoy a tour. The space has a fantastic mix of antique and contemporary pieces (the neo-trad dream…) and boasts an enviable collection of blue and white china. From the dark, masculine bedroom to the sunny common space, each room is layered with pretty textiles and accessories. Bookmarking the images as inspiration for our new apartment! Scroll to the bottom of this post to see how I’d channel William’s decorating style.

Having A Gucci Moment

gucci-alessandro-michelle-spring-2016-23

The fashion world is having a serious Gucci moment and I’m eager to partake. A classic pair of Gucci loafers stand the test of time and are currently gracing the feet of every street style star. Ever since the relatively unknown Alessandra Michele took the helm as creative director, sales at the iconic Italian fashion brand have been booming. Business of Fashion described Michele’s new Gucci woman as “a bookish, nerdy aesthetic, who embodied a new sense of quirky-cool” (yes, please!). Shop the latest Gucci at Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter, and Saks. I also love to hunt for vintage pieces (think silk scarves, ashtrays, etc.) on Etsy, eBay, and The Real Real.
