Design Inspiration from Annette Tatum

Annette Tatum Nursery

This is my first time as a featured poster on Layla Grayce and I am so happy to be part of their selected designers! The girls, Tiffany and Wendy, hold a special place in my heart for it was many years ago that they came to me seeking advice and product to open their web site. The world of web retailing was new then and they took a great idea and built which is today a fabulous, go-to site for all things in the world of home decor. Through the years they have also been super supportive of my line which is why I am so happy that they are one a few selected web retailers to carry the new “Annette Tatum” line as well as my new book The Well Dressed Home.


Welcome to Annette’s House

Annette Tatum Nursery

The much anticipated launch of Annette Tatum’s new line of crib bedding has finally arrived, and we are tickled pink to be one of the select vendors to offer these fresh new patterns online. And my, my – what a grand new line this is! Still holding true to her soft simplicity Annette kicks the fun up a notch with a few Alice in Wonderland-esque sets like Sprout and Forest, which are playful in all the right ways, inventive, and charmingly unisex. And much to our delight Annette’s new line still embodies elements of the bohemian with fabrics like Brocade, Goa, Daisy, India Toile, and Pirouette. In with the new!

Eggnog Pumpkin Pie


Makes one 10 inch pie
Submitted by Tiffany Harris

Fall has arrived and it’s that time of the year to pull out the best recipes for the Holidays. Here is a twist on the classic pumpkin pie that is easy to make and special enough for a fussy crowd, including those that don’t care for pumpkin pie (this includes me)! The addition of the eggnog gives this pie a less intense taste and rich flavor. Enjoy!

Lights, camera, texture!

Jamie Young Lighting Fall 09

We have one word for you – texture. Fresh and vibrant with a touch of modern has always been the basis for Jamie Young designs, but the latest additions to this line introduce glorious elements of texture at every turn. Some are just simple glowing suggestions such as the Mother of Pearl Udipur Pendant or the Cubed Faux Horn Base, with their glossy surfaces embracing the texture of these natural elements. And then you have the Jute Urn Rope and Spiral Sea Glass Base which shout their raw and inviting texture from the roof tops. And let’s not forget those gorgeous shades. Presented in unconventional ways with the Classic Drum Cork and the (oh my!) Hand Painted Platinum Drum, these stylish shades get kicked up a notch. Touchable (and functional) works of art for your very own home, anyone?

The Hostess with the Mostess

With fall in the air and a whole slew of baked-good infused holidays right around the corner, we welcome the newest designs by Jessie Steele. Stocking up on gifts early is never a bad idea, but these colorful chic new styles are too good to not enjoy yourself. A noteworthy tailored apron will have you looking put together no matter how many dozens of last minutes cookies you have to bake. And who can resist red damask this season? Timeless and festive, chic and practical. Is that the faint smell of nutmeg and pumpkin I detect?
