Every time I visited Lori's house, I couldn't help but think it would have been a perfect feature for the "late" Domino magazine. Luckily I had a chance to capture some images before the move. When entering the room your eye is drawn to the center window with the elegant writing desk. Lori made the magnolia swag years ago and it still looks terrific. The color is a bit off in this first image as the Pottery Barn braided jute rug is much lighter in color. (which by the way looks so much like uber expensive apple matting)
The living room used to be painted in this warm golden yellow which now serves as a gorgeous backdrop to her collection of china and shells.

Looking around you will notice little touches here and there. This Indochine chair is dressed with a black satin ribbon.
Have leftover foreign currency? Display it like Lori does - love this.

A painting serves as the summer fireplace screen. Simple white branches accent the mantle.
A view from the front hall into the living room.
An accent chair covered in a Kelly Wearstler fabric.
Beautifully styled shelves in the breakfast room. Notice the flowers tucked in among the plates.
A bit of a peek into the family room with windows and french doors overlooking the garden. There's a great mix of contemporary and traditional pieces in the room. Very casual and relaxed but all done with a great flair. I can't wait to see what she does with her Georgetown home!

Update: To see her powder room, go here.
