Designing for a Lady

Designing for a Lady


Being a human is great but being a lady is the ultimate!  And Audrey Hepburn was the ultimate lady.  I love that she states that the color pink is a belief and a truth!  I, too, believe in kissing and often wish more would adopt the custom to kiss upon greeting!  I wholeheartedly believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.  I’m happiest when I am with the people I love and when I’m surrounded by the things that speak to my soul.  Whether that’s the art that tells my story or the mountains that feed my lungs, my surroundings affect the way I feel.

Recently we were asked to design our dear Mrs. Robinson’s daughter’s room.  She is the spitting image of her mama and is a true lady.  This young and fashion forward lil’ dancer gave me so much inspiration to work with.  She already owns a beautiful French bed and dresser so all I needed to do was cake decorate the rest.  Below are all the ingredients it took to make this empty space feel complete and fit for a lady!

Designing for a lady is my absolute favorite because you can be as feminine and ridiculous as you want!  You can use blush and lilac without apprehension and then frost the whole thing in sparkles!  Thank you, thank you Mrs. Robinson for letting me loose on this space.  I’m in love with every sugar-coated corner!

    One of my favorite quotes is by the famous costume designer Edith Head (who often dressed Ms. Hepburn). She said “your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to show you’re a lady.”
