Circle of Influence • My Favorite Designers

Pin It
Earlier this week, I was reading Jan Showers' blog––a MUST read if you're a Jan-fan. This week she chronicled 10 of her design influences, which many of her choices are designers that I admire myself. It got me to thinking about who I love design-wise and as Ty Larkins says "Can do no wrong."

Of course, Jan and Ty are high on the list! But today, I'd like to start with a designer that I think we'll be hearing and seeing tons more about: Amy D. Morris.  of Atlanta.  I identify with her refined, sophisticated and fresh approach––I'd call it southern-forward. I admire her restraint and ability to liven up the classic bones of the familiar while incorporating nuances of the unexpected.

If there is anything that supersedes perfection, this living room is it in my book.

So refined. So classic.

Amy has a love for intaglios just like myself. 

I've had this file for years upon years now, and this image is how I became aware of Amy. I'm not sure if there is a bathroom out there that I love more than this one! That tub!!! Gorgeous! 


Every now and then, I come across a design-soulmate and I'd say that Amy is most definitely one of them. I think her career is just going upupup and I can't wait to see more of her talent unfold, don't you? 

Stay tuned for more of my favorite designers––believe me, I have so many I could likely fill a month's worth of blog posts! 

Have a great weekend, everyone.
