I have not lost my mind

All right, stay with me, Dear Readers. You know me for my love of all things contemporary BoBo, but I started my first shop as a French and English country gluttonous feast. And I still have a soft spot for it in my blackened hard snarky heart. A tiny spot.

When a designer takes a minimal approach to European antiques (and skips the toile) like Dana Oatley Ortega did in this Dallas home, she has a fan in me. Asked what made the home seem so tranquil, Oatley Ortega sagely replied,"Severe editing, lots of housekeeping, and deep storage." I think I'll stitch that on a pillow.
