    beautiful home – I love to look at people’s book collections – wasn’t A Gentleman in Moscow a beautiful book?

  2. Becky says:

    What is the source or make of dining table light fixture please?

  3. Joy says:

    Love the OOTD
    love that your home is southern in style-
    Happy, welcoming, things you love and blue!

    Also loved the outfit last week? one with the green blouse- if it can’t be blue, go green

    Dear Beth,
    I’ve only recently been following your blog. I am your age, and am beginning to feel invisible. I love your style, it is youthful and fun. I too love color, clothes , and decor.
    I was sorry to hear of your husbands passing, I can;t imagine how difficult that journey was. My niece who is only 53 and lives in the U.K. has been diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer, she is terrified to leave her children behind. Cancer is such a nasty disease.
    Keep up the great work, I love your blog!

    Hi Beth, absolutely beautiful, you answered my question as to where you relocated your dining room. I think you have given not only myself but others lots of inspiration on home decor with some great idea’s. Thank you so much xoxo

  6. Carol says:

    Your living room is beautiful, even though blue is not my favourite colour, however, your room is both cool and stylish. I particularly like the painting of two boats above your fireplace.
    Please, do help my ignorance as I really do not know what a credenza is.

    Love your living room! Soft turquoise and blue are soothing, as is that artwork above your fireplace. I have pieces in soft turqouise found at thrift and antique stores for my home. Also inspired because our fireplace needs a total refresh. As for white jeans in winter, wore some to church lunch last week…compliments received, along with comments about how long ago, white in anything in winter was a big no-no. Heard one lady say she might give it a try, too 🙂 Told them all you’re my inspiration, and since I’ve always marched to the beat of a different drum…thanks, Beth!~

  8. Pat says:

    Hi Beth- great blog. And that gold “tangled” chandelier is to die for. Where did you find such an unusual piece?
    Thank you!

  9. Linda Lennon says:

    Since my move from New York to beautiful Palm Desert I have had a great time decorating. Been able to use the few pieces I brought along. I purged everything I didn’t love and when purchasing new I ask myself if it’s something I want to look at everyday. I noticed you do not have any photos out. You may have removed them for this shoot but right now, as I decorate the den, I’ve been purchasing new frames for old photos for a cohesive look. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Too funny, I feel as if I have a US twin. From our haircut and colour, makeup, style, and now decorating style and colour choices! Needless to say, love the post. Do you mind me asking what colour season you are?

  11. Susan says:

    Beth, love your style! Your home is comfortable and inviting. I love the pops of blue and your blue and white porcelain. Love you ootd, it is perfect!
    Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    Looks wonderful! I love all your built-ins. You were smart to take your time making decisions and slowly filling in what you want in your home. Incidentally, is that couch from Overstock.com? I thought I saw it there and it looks like yours. Fits in nicely with your pieces throughout. I have those red shoes, and I always get compliments on them whenever I wear them. They are so comfortable (although I admit I put spongy inserts into all my shoes these days–that helps!) Must be feeling good to have your home in the shape you wanted it–helps one stay organized, too. Very lovely.

  13. Suzanne Smith says:

    ps-Gentleman from Moscow AND The Nightingale were both excellent reads! ;))

  14. Anne Hughes says:

    Love those red flats! Thought the blazer was great with the striped top. Great ideas for early spring here in Maine!

  15. Barbara Foreso says:

    Enjoyed your post but I’m surprised no one mentioned getting to see beautiful Ollie. I would like to be brave and paint my red brick fireplace white this year

  16. Suzanne Contois says:

    Love this outfit and your home is beautiful with style and character. Ollie is fabulous!

  17. Kathy says:

    I love the blue and white pottery accents-I have a very similar look to my home as well and blue has always been one of my favorite colors. I live on the coast and my windows overlook a cove so the beachy traditional style is great as both my husband and I love the look. Can you please tell me the source of your carpet in the living room? It looks beautiful!

  18. Sherry says:

    May I ask where you got the boat print over your fireplace? Looking for something like that for our lake house. Love your blog and you tube channel!!
