#tbt I have always been called a tree hugger. I remember standing outside my sons Kindergarten class waiting for him to leave me for school....and another parent looking at me and stating that to me. It did not seem so obvious to me then, but in time it did.
Picture taken in Portland Oregon area a couple of years ago on a magical tree adventure.

The Memphis house in the previous post that was originally decorated by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings has early 1960s murals in the Master Bedroom and Dining Room by Douglas Riseborough. Please disregard the current furnishings when admiring Riseborough’s chic artistry; he was an established star in decorative painting as evidenced in the last image about his work for the 1963 World’s Fair. The round bedroom with a shallow dome ceiling is presented as folly with panels of faux boiserie missing to reveal an idealized landscape. The Dining Room has a suspended ceiling with a trompe l’oeil view to the sky and panels of romantically dressed folks. Does it take a special taste to appreciate That cannot be denied but the new owners will hopefully appreciate this treasure of mid-century classicism.

First night using our new bedding. We loved our dark stylized leaf pattern duvet from @patchnyc for target line from a few years back-it was interesting but also neutral enough not to get sick of. Ozzy barks in the same spot every day and irreparably wore down one “patch” until it just looked too bad to keep. We replaced with this pale and serene faux bois pattern that blends right into our Moroccan throw and moire patterned wallpaper. Not sure I’m loving it yet but I think it may be a fresh change. Should we keep it .

Making fireplaces a true centerpiece at a private residence in #Memphis. 🔥This is all hand cast and carved faux bois made from plaster as a fireplace surround and feature wall.

A woodgraining job that I did awhile ago, turning this space from institutional to more architectural, though very rewarding, there was almost 300 linear feet, so it was a lot of work. #fauxbois #faux #woodgrained #woodgraining #modernmasters
