Many asked where the wallpaper on the cover came from and decor8 reader Hosanna let us know. She said that it is called Forêt noire and was designed by French artist Nathalie Lété and is available in limited run at Domestic, Oikos and Lapin & Me. Beautiful, isn’t it?

During the next few weeks on decor8, posts will be very light as I’m taking a break from writing to enjoy a mini vacation. I plan to read a few books, decorate my home, eat a little, drink a bit more than usual and be merry a lot.
I’ll still post lightly during the weeks ahead but mostly visual inspiration with very little text and of course, some lovely links. My regular schedule of blogging will resume on Monday, January 9, 2012. When I return, I will have some great news to share as this winter will be a very busy time for me with lots of new projects to share with everyone. That’s why I need a break to breath and organize before the big things start to consume my life entirely in the new year.
Much love and enjoy this most beautiful ending to what was, for me, a very happy 2011. With 2012 drawing nearer and nearer I wonder what it will bring for us all, don’t you?
I’ve shared the work of Savannah-based stylist Elizabeth Demos on decor8 for years now but haven’t peeked in on her for awhile since I’ve been a bit consumed with projects offline… Seems I’ve been missing out…
After catching up on her beautiful blog this morning I learned that she no longer runs Vintage General in Savannah, a shop I had always wanted to visit, but on a positive note she is working as a stylist still producing work for magazines like Better Homes & Gardens in addition to planning and styling weddings for her clients and working on freelance assignments for large retailers like Anthropologie’s wedding site, BHLDN.
Liz has a great eye and I love her use of color and pattern, always in perfect balance and her look is very southern which I love as I was raised not far from Liz over the border in South Carolina. These images show just a peek into her styling work — to view more please visit her website and blog. I enjoyed looking at these colors and fresh flowers — definitely not very “holiday like” I know, but I’m already dreaming of March, April and May! :)
