“I love places and things that transform us, that take us someplace else for a day, or an evening, or just for a moment.” — Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren believes in the “purity of the West” as the “home of the American dream and the foundation of the American Myth”. He’s influenced by its land, horses, mountains, log cabins, open air and romance.
Using intricately embossed saddle leather, featuring a beautiful floral pattern, and Navajo silver accents, the Dakota series will transport you to the majesty of the West, even if just for a moment.

“A room should be collected, not decorated.” — Suzanne Kasler
Suzanne Kasler, principal of Atlanta-based Suzanne Kasler Interiors, is a master at mixing old and new, traditional and modern, European, and American. Her ability to make a room look effortlessly elegant, yet comfortable at the same time, is breathtaking. She is one of the most in-demand interior designers in the country — with interiors featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Southern Accents, Traditional Home, Veranda, and Southern Living.
Here are just a few more inspiring facts about Suzanne Kasler…
Suzanne’s father served in the Air Force as a fighter pilot and Colonel. He was a prisoner of war for seven years during the Vietnam War. As a result of his time spent in the Air Force, her family moved every two years before settling down in Indianapolis, Indiana when she was in high school.
Suzanne is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.
In 1996, Suzanne and her husband, John Morris, moved to Atlanta while Atlanta Summer Olympics were in full swing.
She opened her own design business, Suzanne Kasler Interiors, when no one in Atlanta would hire her. Suzanne quickly became a design star in the Atlanta area, and eventually the rest of the nation.
In 2009, Rizzoli published Suzanne’s first book, Inspired Interiors. Her second book, Timeless Style, was published in 2013. Both of these inspirational books are excellent additions to any interior design library.
In addition to her impressive portfolio of interiors, Suzanne Kasler has a line of furniture for Hickory Chair, line of rugs with Safavieh, fine art with Sochier Marin, accessories with Ballard Designs, fabric collection with Lee Jofa, and a collection of lighting for Visual Comfort.
One of her most recent projects is the Southern Living Idea House 2014, in Palmetto Bluff, SC. We had the pleasure of seeing Suzanne’s work first-hand at the preview party. She did a beautiful job of capturing the elegant yet comfortable style of the Lowcountry (and the natural scenery certainly didn’t hurt!). The Southern Living Idea House opened to the public last weekend, June 28th and will remain open for tours until December 14th, 2014.

Mercury glass accents have been used for centuries to beautify homes. Invented in 19th Century Bohemia (Czech Republic), it was an attractive substitute for those who could not afford sterling silver; hence its nickname “poor man’s silver.” Although mercury was formerly used to provide the reflective coating for mirrors, mercury glass contains neither silver nor mercury — due to expense and toxicity. Mercury glass is clear glass, blown into double-walled shapes and coated on the inside with a silvering formula. When air reacts with the silvering formula and causes the silver surface to flake off, it creates the “flawed” antique look that has made mercury glass so desirable. Depending on this oxidation process mercury glass can range from highly reflective with few “flaws” to more antique styles.
The lustrous, reflective qualities add a sophisticated elegance to modern interiors and the vintage charm of the antique mercury glass make it a perfect, timeless addition to any style interior.
These mercury glass lamps will add a subtle elegance to any space.
