    Say what?!?! You’re here!!!! I didn’t know you were moving here. Can’t wait to see your new abode and we will certainly have to hook up!

    • judy51 says:

      Hi Kim! I think we need to get some Southern girls rounded up and have a meet and greet with Beth…I wouldn’t mind making the 3 hour drive if I had enough notice (not sure how my
      “name” will show up but this is Judy from Gracious Southern Living)

      • beth djalali says:

        i am always up for a blogger meet up! and now that the weather is warming up we can dine al fresco. so nice to meet you judy!
        xoxo beth

        • judy51 says:

          thank you Beth….I’m hoping Kim and I can get something together soon….I think we’d have a ball!

      • Kim says:

        Sounds good, Judy. I didn’t know you followed Beth, too.

        • judy51 says:

          Kim, I don’t remember how I found Beth but I’m so glad I did (I didn’t know you followed her either!) can we seriously talk about a meet up sometime this spring? If you’re interested, here’s my email so we can “talk” a little better:

          P.S. Just saw your announcement about your furniture…’s about time and I know you are excited! I can’t wait to see it in your home.

    • beth djalali says:

      i know! you were the first person on my list to call after the big announcement. we are totally having lunch now that i’m in your neck of the woods. i’ll be in touch, girlfriend!
      xoxo beth

  5. Kim in MN says:

    Change can be very good so I see excitement and happiness in your future! Look forward to seeing how your impeccable taste translates to designing your new home

    • beth djalali says:

      hi kim! i’m excited to dig in and come up with a design plan. it’s so nice to be back in a house with all sorts of possibilities.
      xoxo beth

  6. Evie says:

    Welcome to the South from a New England transplant who lives “up the road a piece” in South Carolina. So happy to have you inspiring us from Georgia. Congratulations on your new adventure!

    • beth djalali says:

      hi evie!
      we are definitely planning on visiting charleston in the not too distant future. thanks so much for the ‘welcome to the neighborhood!’
      xoxo beth

  7. Nikki Gwin says:

    well. You came ALL this way and didn’t stop in to see me. sigh….

    LOL maybe next time?

  8. Judith says:

    Good Morning Beth! You will love Athens! We lived in Augusta for many years and loved it. Our oldest son lives there with his family so we are there often. We also love Calif. and lived not too far from San Francisco. So we were movers too, but finally settled back in TX where we started from. I retired from Interior Design work about five years ago but you never really stop. With friends, family and life long clients the work is never done. We also downsized and that has been a process of a new life style. I will be thinking of you and looking forward to your new posts from the beautiful state of Georgia! Best Regards, Judith

    • beth djalali says:

      thanks, judith! we lived in texas twice, and thought long and hard about austin, tx before we settled on athens. i’ll have to pick your brain for some design tips! downsizing is a process but once you’re there it feels good – i guess we are doing a little upsizing since we lived in a two bedroom apartment for 4 years…
      xoxo beth

  9. Talia says:

    How exciting! Change is always good and I am looking forward to following you on this fun adventure. Wishing you only the best!

  10. Oooh we’re on the same coast! Maybe we’ll meet in the future. I can’t wait to read about your home design and wish you the best in your new city!

  11. What exciting news! Have fun decorating your new house! Would love it if you took us along on a tour sometime! 🙂

    Too bad we never made that lunch happen though while you were in SF!

  12. Susan Woten Cooper says:

    Nothing is more fun than Athens during football season!! Can’t wait to see your tailgating outfits! Time to pull out the red and black!!

    • beth djalali says:

      it’s a good thing red is one of my favorite colors! i’m looking forward to football season and tailgating. we were just looking at the schedule yesterday planning on a family outing.
      xoxo beth

  13. Christa Bailey says:

    Beth, Welcome home! I live in Athens!!! I grew up in this area and have never wanted to leave. I hope that you will love it just as much. I have followed your blog for a while, commented once or twice, but now I really hope that I can meet you in person!

  14. Vicky H says:

    Welcome to Athens and to the south in general. I enjoy your blog and OOTD especially Oscar. Thank you for sharing some details of your move and any lifestyle items you post.

    • beth djalali says:

      hi vicky!
      thanks so much for swinging by the blog! i love to hear from my readers. you’ve got it right – oscar is my best accessory.
      xoxo beth

  15. LeandraMN1972 says:

    I just clicked over from Wardrobe Oxygen and was looking through your pictures and thought “that looks like Athens” and it was! Welcome! I’ve lived here off an on (mostly on) since 1991– somehow I keep ending up back here. It looks like you’ve already scouted out some great locations so I think you’ll love it! If you ever need anything, drop me a line!

    • beth djalali says:

      hi leandra!
      somehow, i missed this comment! thanks so much for letting me know you are a fellow athenian? (is this what we call ourselves?) i’m always up for lunch and meeting new friends.
      xoxo beth

  16. Wait a second. I just found out about your move. Had breakfast with Une Femme for her birthday and she told me about your move. Now why Athens Georgia? What drew you there? Can’t wait to here. So sorry I missed you when you were in LA. Maybe we can coordinate when you’re in SF. Looking forward to seeing Athens!

  17. Monika Monika says:

    I don’t know both of the cities and would like to know why this city, if the question is not too personal. I first thought Athens in Greece!

  18. Maggie Silton says:

    After a very hectic winter and spring I’m finally catching up on posts! I may have said this else where, but best of luck in your new location. I’ve heard that Athens is a wonderful town!
