"Charlotte Moss - Garden Inspirations . . . "

Charlotte Moss


To openly declare my unending love and respect for Charlotte Moss is not going to catch anyone by surprise around these parts.  I've always been inspired not only by her gracious manner and amazing eye - but, also her laser-sharp business acumen.  Basically, she's cooking on all four burners all the time - and looks amazing doing so.

If you'd like a wee peek into Charlotte's lovely world - you can do no better than finding her new book - "Garden Inspirations."

I was delighted to have a advance look at its lovely pages . . . and have a few here to share with you.

Just bask in the beauty . . . . 

I really love her use of statuary to help define spaces within the larger garden. 

I remember hearing Charlotte speaking years ago about her love
of custom lampshades.  And these couldn't be more perfect! 

Colour.  Texture.  Contrast.
This image is EVERYTHING!

"National Tartan Day, 2015 - Part 3 . . . "


As you might be able to imagine, things get delightfully hectic around these parts each year when National Tartan Day rolls around.  So, I wanted to share another great interview that we had on Masculine Interiors on Monday - talking all about my love for this aforementioned textile.

Take a look . . .

"National Tartan Day, 2015 - Part 2 . . . "


I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a few of the things we're working on for Scot Meacham Wood Home - in honour of National Tartan Day.  Though we're not "all plaid all the time" around these parts - there's clearly more than a healthy helping of tartan in many of our projects - and as an inspiration for our upcoming SMW Home launch later this year.

So . . . let me introduce a few new friends of mine . . . .

SMW Home's "Scudder Tattersall" in 100% wool.
Inspired by the textiles of a classic English shooting weekend - but,
perfect for upholstery, drapes, or decorative pillows! 

Our SMWHome "Mayfair" Upholstered Headboard
in our Ancient Campbell tartan with brass nailhead trim. 

A beautifully curated collection of Victorian tartanware boxes
and various Scottish treasures! 

Our custom "Leland Tartan" in 100% wool.  In classic
aubergine and forest green - updated not only with
a jolt of sharp citron yellow - but oversized for a
serious punch of drama and style. 

I love this charming little woven - "Mary Ann Damask."
Simple winding foliage on a striated background.

And any collection with my name on it would not
be complete without a selection of trims and fringes - here shown on 
SMWHome's "MacLeod Tartan" - a classic - but, with the 
colour cranked up a bit for a more modern feel.

We'll keep sharing images over the next few months - and look for our complete collection to launch in September of 2015 - textiles, trims, home accessories, furniture, and antiques.

Exciting times!

"National Tartan Day, 2015 - Part 1 . . . "


To help celebrate this year's National Tartan Day - I thought we'd take a tiny trip in the 'way-back-machine' to last December when I spent an incredible week in Scotland working on Scot Meacham Wood Home.  One of the highlights of the trip was a lazy late afternoon wandering the streets of Edinburgh with nothing but an empty calendar and the fully charged camera battery.

Come . . . let's look around . . .

Stop back by later in the day . . . I want to share a few advance images of SMW Home with you!
