I hope that if you are on 30A or Hwy 98 this holiday, you will stop by my sister’s booth at Santa Rosa Beach Retail Therapy! Her booth is in the back midway. 
She carries beautiful antique pieces along with items from Aidan Gray, Royal Botanical Gardens, and so much more, and she is adding merchandise weekly. 

Happy 4th of July!!!

Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers
by Margot Shaw
Rizzoli, $45.00
April 2019
Reviewed by Teresa Hatfield
Author, Splendid Sass

If you have been following my blog and other social media for the past 10 years, you will know that I am in love with this book.  There are over 200 pages filled with beautiful homes using flowers in the stunning interiors and gardens. There are also ideas and instruction on putting together lovely arrangements.

Margot Shaw is Editor-in-Chief of Flower magazine, so I wasn't surprised to see a full helping of beautiful here, including some of the most spectacular rooms serving as a backdrop for the flowers. This book is filled with everything that makes a house a home, from fine linens, rugs, draperies, antiques, and of course, the most breathtaking florals.

Below are several of the images included in Living Floral. ENJOY!

Bromberg's in Birmingham has the book in their Mountain Brook and The Summit stores. Just in time for Mother's Day!

I am in awe of all of the unique and beautiful pieces of furniture, art, the rugs and textiles, the accessories, and the houses that protect them. It was a wonderful tour pouring over the pages of Houses│Atelier AM.

Alexandra and Michael provide their clients with a home that full of one of a kind surroundings that match their personalities. Creating a masterpiece is the only way to describe it.

I have shared several images from the homes in the book.  I hope that you ENJOY them as much as I have and plan to continue to.
