I couldn’t be more excited that the “Simply Chic” sale — otherwise known as … my Joss & Main Curator’s Collection — kicks off tomorrow! I had so much fun putting together pieces that fit my clean, classic aesthetic. What do you think of this rendering?
It’s a conceptual sketch of a dining room put together entirely from my Curator’s Collection. I’d add some taffeta drapes to any windows and call it a (gorgeous) day! After the sale launches, I’ll update this post with links to each of the products that I used in the room …. basically everything but the tea cups.

Worried that a dining room is too “precious” to actually use when you have young twins? The statement chandelier and abstract art pieces are child-friendly ways to add sophistication to the space. I mean, the chandelier is out of reach, so no worries there! The rug is reasonably priced (and can be fiber-sealed), so you wouldn’t need to be overly concerned about stains or spills. Add a linen Chair Apron to the seats … and you are good to go. With dining rooms that truly function, there’s no need to add a “kids’ table” in the back. Let everyone sit together, especially on special occasions like holidays! I still do not suggest giving the babies cranberry sauce as finger food …
How was your weekend? My days are getting busier and busier as “Life in the Fast Lane,” 2012 NOMOTC Convention, draws near. I can’t wait to welcome hundreds of twin and triplet moms to Charlotte! In the meantime … here’s a peek at my “rock stars.” I think you can guess which twin is rocking out to the Fresh Beat Band. It’s a shame that the polo shirts and seersucker really kill the edge.
