Designer Spotlight

I could literally spend hours and hours looking at design blogs and websites. Unfortunately, it always makes me want to change my house up!

I recently stumbled upon a new designer whom I absolutely LOVE. Tobi Wells Fairley of Tobi Fairley Interior Design recently caught my eye when she was featured as one of Traditional Home magazine's top 20 young designers. I checked out her website and I'm in love! She also has a blog with great product features and lots of awesome links.

I love her use of fun color combinations like green and black or turquoise and red. Her work reminds me a of a young, fresh Betty Lou Phillips. Lots of great patterns and trims and a mix of tradition and whimsy that is absolute perfection. So Tobi, when can you come to my house and help me figure out what to do with my living room?

Some of Tobi's work...











Tobi is based in Little Rock, Arkansas. Anyone from Little Rock seen her work personally? I'm jealous!

this post is inspiring to me in so many ways ... first i LOVE design!!! also ... before Babycakes was born i pulled a photo out of a magazine of a pink, lime green and black room and added it to my design file. four years later ... i am working on creating that exact room. lastly ... her favorite kitchen is also mine! the kitchen in Dianne Keaton's movie is my inspiration for our kitchen if we ever redo!!! i absolutely love it!

great post ... once again i am inspired. her photos and blog have enticed me to paint babycakes' curtain rods black and have convinced me to paint her beds black!

I'm in love with those rooms! I also wish I could hire a professional and get my condo decorated! That monogramed curtain thing (I'm sure there is a proper name for it) over the couch is so cool!
