everybody’s favorite everything – laura casey

Next in the “everybody’s favorite everything” series is Charlotte designer and blogger Laura Casey.  Somehow I had managed not to meet Laura in person until late last year … which is quite a feat considering that we have had our children in the same gymnastics glass!  (Blame it on the carpool line.)  I’m so glad Laura and I finally connected at High Point Furniture Market last October … although we still need to make time for coffee.  (Blame that on our little ones.)  Laura’s work is classic yet fresh – and her personal choices are just as sophisticated as I expected them to be!   So let’s be inspired by Laura …

See what I mean?  So chic!  I can’t imagine there is anyone left who doesn’t read Laura’s blog, but – just in case – you absolutely must check it out.  Her posts are well-researched, thoughtfully written and always inspiring.  Of course, that’s exactly what you’d expect from someone as beautiful and talented as she is.  Laura, thank you so much for sharing your favorites!
