Lately I have been noticing a lot of peacocks in interior design – everything from artwork to accessories! It may be a classic motif, but it certainly has made a resurgence. Take a look!

And to have that “conversation starter” – might want to sit in this peacock print chair from The Divine Chair.

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the press preview for the Greystone Mansion “Maison de Luxe.” This year’s show house features twenty six prominent interior designers who’s stunning designs transform the historic Greystone Estate. While the show house doesn’t open to the public until December 2nd – I have a sneak peek!

Early on Thursday morning I saw a tweet go past with a link to a recent blog post by Nicole Cohen of the blog Sketch42. The tweet said “Keith Haring inspired” and I was instantly drawn – and once I took a look at Nicole’s post I was instantly in love! She had created an entry with Keith Haring inspired graphics painted (by her!) on the walls. Considering I’ve been a huge fan and collector of Keith Haring since my teens, I was by far impressed with this stunning entry!

{the tweet that had me at “hello”}

Nicole’s moodboard for her bachelor client, which she featured here – note the foyer inspired walls.

Nicole wrote that she was also inspired by the work of Kelly Wearstler’s entry at her Hillcrest Estate.

Makes for such a dramatic backdrop when styling! Loving this!

I actually featured this on a blog post awhile back about my visit to the Keith Haring Foundation in NYC (photo by me).

It was also featured on Elle Decor’s “Design Insiders’ Weekly Finds” on Friday!

While at High Point Market I had the opportunity to visit the Lexington Home Brands headquarters for an extensive tour of their 100,000 square feet of showroom space. Among the many lines Lexington carries, Henry Link Trading Co. and Tommy Bahama Home are part of their popular furniture collections. I was amazed at the vast selections and styles among all the collections, and impressed with the quality of the furnishings and fabric options.

Love this glam chair called the GretA with it’s pretty print and nailhead detail.

The Gigi Chair in a fun fabric!

Alhambra Chair from the St Tropez collection.

These Kelly Bookcases are really unique.

A pair of the Marilyn Ottomans.

Sleek in leather too.

A pair of the Pampelonne Leather Ottomans.

Also comes in fabric!

The dramatic Garland Left Arm Facing Chair.

The same chair takes on a different character in a printed fabric (& comes in a right facing version too!).

A sofa from the Lexington Upholstery collection.

Colorful chairs from the Lexington Leather collection.

The new Tommy Bahama Road to Canberra collection.

I love the Aboriginal art inspired pillow.

This dining table and room vignette evoked a mountainous resort lodge.

This dining table is inset with rope under a glass top.

The Henry Link Trading Co. collection offers an eclectic mix of furnishings inspired by a “passion for travel and discovery.”

A “Moroccan inspired” cube.

Available in a dark finish too.

A gallery of hand drawn furniture creations line the walls of a hallway at the Lexington Home Brands showroom.

Thank you to Amy & Shannon for leading us on such a great tour and thank you to Lexington for inviting us to come experience High Point & view the collections!
