JUNE WEATHER + ATLANTA=CUTE RAIN BOOTS

I moved from Seattle to Atlanta 10 years ago, thinking I had finally escaped the rain capital of the world.  Very quickly I found out that it actually rains more (statistically) in Atlanta than Seattle.  And, the rain in Atlanta is very different.  One minute the sky is clear and sunny and the next, dark grey clouds move in and…

The world of Interior Design is full of incredibly talented and inspiring designers, but now and then I come across a designer that takes my breath way.  Right now, that designer is TOBI FAIRLEY.  In 2009, Tobi was selected by Traditional Home Magazine as one of the Top 20 Young Designers in America.
