Lisa Sherry's House and Parlore Party

 I want to kick off my week long recap about Fall High Point Market today with one of my favorite events during market which was the Parlore Party at Lisa Sherry's house sponsored by Lonny Magazine.  I have been a long time admirer of this talented designer, who puts the cool in "uber cool."   When Lisa Sherry's house was originally featured in Domino Magazine 
I can remember pouring over the photos for hours.  I am always intrigued by designer's homes, but this one was even more interesting to me.  Lisa's style is so unique and fresh.  Her aesthetic is a combination of a honed good eye as well as a curator and collector of interesting objects.  This combination results in amazing vignettes.  Her vignettes collectively result in rooms, that are dynamic and interesting.  When Amy Flurry, creative director for Parlore invited me to the party at Lisa's, I was really excited.   I knew this night would be one to remember.

Losing a Child...Pearls of Wisdom

My Sunday "Pearls of Wisdom" are typically insightful tidbits pertaining to
 interior design, but today I want to share my thoughts on grief and how to help 
a friend who is grieving.  No one likes to discuss sad topics like death or grieving
but we all have to deal with loss as part of living.  

Today, I attended a Memorial Service for my sweet friend Sondra's 24 year old son.
It was a beautiful service honoring his life.  I sat there thinking about all the things
that ran through my head, when I was sitting in Sondra's seat at my son's service.
I thought about all those years of sitting at band concerts, ballgames and
 church programs where we fought to have a front row seat to see our child.
   This time we would gladly give up our front row seat to someone else.  Why did
 this happen to our child?  It can't be possible, there must be a mistake.  
I remember very little about my son't funeral.  It was a blur.  I was in shock. 
 Of all the things we hold dear in life our children are the most precious.

Celerie Kemble for Lane Venture

 Celerie Kemble hit the ball out of the park with her new line for Lane Venture.
Her outdoor collection for Lane Venture includes more than 50 items designed by Kemble utilizing a variety
 of outdoor materials and techniques.    I would describe the collection as "Palm Beach meets Hollywood"
 outdoor chic. The designs are timeless with close attention to details which include pretty quatrefoils and scallops.   

Celerie, herself, served as our guide in the showroom for the collection.  It was
 interesting to see the furniture through the eyes of the visionary who created it. 
 Her passion for the collection was effervescent.   

In Celerie's words, "The collection marries the comfort and sophisticated design
 sensibility she expects of interior furniture with the technical and practical functions
 needed for outdoor."
