Pale and Interesting

November 12, 2009

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you know what a fan I am of Atlanta Bartlett. That is why I was so thrilled today to hear that this amazing author, stylist and designer has opened a new online shop called Pale and Interesting. I’ve been waiting for this announcement for months now — thank you so much Andrea for letting me know about this glorious news. You will love it because it’s beyond beautiful to surf the site and view all of Altanta’s fabulous finds. She’s the queen bee of decorating in my book so I’m loving every click! Furniture, accessories, jewelry… all of the things you’d expect to see in her beautiful books. Here is just a smidgen of what you’ll find online…

Do these scenes make your heart beat a little faster? I love seeing these pretty cabinets and the fine china along with found items and shiny things. Plaid blankets, baskets for wood near the fireplace, lovely artwork… There is a casual elegance here that resonates with me, what about you?

    They are such beautiful images. As I scrolled down each one just got better and made me say ‘wow’ a little louder. I’m off to drool at the shop now.

    Amazingggg….gggg….ggg! I love how clean and relaxing the color combinations are. The scissor molding was so great. These pictures inspire me to keep all my windows open, pick some flowers, and paint my house all white. Thanks

    I scrolled down through these pictures – all the time thinking about my new bungalow which is now being refurbish and will be painted completely white inside. Can I put this idea in, that idea, how would this go…..?

    And yes, my heart was beating a little faster!

    I absolutely LOVE these. The beautiful muted tones are gorgous, they remind me of French beach huts – slightly shabby chic and wonderful. All I need now is some sunshine!

    I always want to move right into her work and her husband’s too…love their whole aesthetic as it is what I would like to be surrounded with… quiet colors but loads of lush texture and details.
