styled by tzi: kara cox at southern style now
November 20th, 2017
Having just wrapped up the Traditional Home showhouse in Dallas, I’ve been watching excitedly to see the gorgeous rooms that I knew would come out of the Southern Style Now showhouse in Savannah. Y’all, Brooke and I have been blown away! Ah-may-zing. Did you know that Brooke was a fashion buyer before she came to TZI? She’s been so inspired that she’s put together some equally-as-incredible fashion pairings so we can all capture the spirit of those rooms in our everyday ensembles. First up?
How fantastic is this bedroom that Kara Cox designed? Hello, azalea and marigold! This more saturated version of my long-time faves, pink and yellow, is killer — and we love it just as much in fashion as we do in Kara’s beautiful design. Simply pair those J Brand mid-rise super skinny leather leggings (and wouldn’t those go with everything?!?!) with the “James” blouse from Caroline Constas, slide on the to-die-for Aquazzura sunflower studded mules, and grab your Sam Edelman Azalea clutch (that’s what I call bang for the buck) … and you’ll be (a) out the door in a flash, and (b) getting more compliments than you can count. Extra bonus points if you get to come home to that dreamy bedroom!
I’ve always loved the overlap between interior design and fashion, and, with Brooke’s “buyer’s eye,” I’m excited to bring you more of that here. With any luck, I’ll even be able to convince her to post a few selfies — and sources! — on her Instagram (@brooke_tzi). You’ll find more pairings on Instagram at #styledbytzi, and of course, I share my everyday inspiration at @tracizeller.
What do you think about this color combo? I. Want. Those. Mules.
PS: Wondering why I’m saying TZI instead of TZD? We’re doing a bit of branding work, and you’ll see a fresh new look — and slightly tweaked name (Traci Zeller Interiors) — in 2018!
