I have plunged into my friend Carolyn's home transformation whole heartedly and will consider her my first real client. (How exciting!!) She has compiled pictures of many of her own favorite spaces over the years and I've had so much fun looking through her photos, many of them from a time before I began my obsession with interiors. In the midst of flipping through all of her inspiration, I realized one common denominator: casual and conservative living together... and getting along! It seems so obvious and looking through my own inspiration, I realize that it's a characteristic that I am also attracted to, but it's not something I had formerly been able to articulate. It is such an elegant look that moves quickly and seemlessly from bare feet to high heels and I plan to use for my own space in the future. Here are some of my favorite interiors where casual and conservative live in harmony.
