everybody’s favorite everything – amanda burdge


Is it strange when you can’t even recall how you first “met” someone?  Amanda Burdge from AB Home Interiors and I definitely met through the blog world … but, for the life of me, I can’t remember how we were “introduced!”  Regardless, I am thrilled that she and I became friends – both through our blogs and in real life.  We’ve had loads of fun, whether working on the “Designer Challenge” she initiated, power-walking through High Point, or comparing notes over the phone.  When I first decided to do this little series, I knew I wanted to see Amanda’s picks.  As a store owner and an interior designer, she has extra incentive to find the latest and greatest!   So let’s see what Amanda chose …

Amanda from AB Home Interiors (Nashville, Tennessee)

Flower: Peony

Stationery: Allie Munroe

Everyday Dishes:  Vintage from the flea market

Color:  Orange and black

Soap:  Marianella’s Desert Gardenia Soap

Ice Cream:  Homemade

Towel:  Hammam Towels

Chair:  Charles Pollock Executive Chair by Knoll

Sheets:  Anichini and Versai

Cleaning Supply:  Homemade and Organic

Lightbulb/Wattage:  75 watt PAR Halogen

Pen:  Cross

Artist:  Joshua Petker

Car Color (Exterior/Interior):  Any color as long as it’s black

Odd Fact:  I wear my hair up in a pen 90% of the time and have done so since I was in grade school


Soooo interesting!  As someone who always chooses the plushest towels she can find, I am fascinated by the idea of using a hammam towel.  I must admit, though, my favorite part of this series is easily the artist – and I am crazy for Joshua Petker’s Two Women Passing in Blue.  Oh, and I am totally in love with Allie Munroe’s faux skin box sets.

Amanda, thank you so much for participating … and you know we’ll chat soon!
