Last year we spent a good amount of time in Atlanta & in learning about Southern artists I came to adore, Gregg Irby Gallery consistently popped as a showcase for their pieces.
When Gregg initially started working with artists, her focus was on celebrating and cultivating emerging talents. Her relaxed approach to representing their work was very well received and many of those artists are now readily known and nationally acclaimed.

So in her beautiful new gallery, in Atlanta's Westside, works of these now established artists commingle with rising stars and the result is decidedly fresh.
When I look for art, I opt for pieces that bring me joy & I’ve found Gregg Irby to be a treasure trove of such happy pieces.
I recently discovered the artist Laurence Young through the gallery & added “Back Again” to our home. The piece is so beautiful, it’s already traveled between our master bathroom & my office!
Here are a few of the other pieces I’ve been admiring from the gallery, I love the bold colors!
Whether you are in Atlanta or perusing the expansive offering on their website, I highly recommend checking out Gregg Irby next time you’re looking for the perfect piece. (Their Instagram account is also a delightful source of eye candy!)

I’m so excited to be participate in my fourth season of One Room Challenge, this go-around I’ve made over our living room.
You can view my initial planning here:
I could not be more thrilled with how my ORC came together & I’m delighted to share our updated living room with you!
If you recall, my main goal for the space was to make it more inviting. It was an amalgamation of random pieces and it felt as such, an afterthought of a room.
Let’s remember the before:
When the design was near completion, I was delighted, but everything felt so new (not surprisingly, as the majority of the items are!)
So it was kismet to learn that my friend & stylist guru, Olga Naiman, would be in town and happy to help give the space a more lived-in vibe.
Enter wonderfully curated vintage finds & unexpected art:
Of course, I’m SO VERY thankful for the many generous sponsors that partnered with me
& to Linda for organizing this fantastic event!
